It executes a very uncomfortable and gloomy feeling to be diagnosed with cataract. It is an abnormality of the eye lens which causes vision loss. Blurred vision, poor vision at night or seeing halos around the lights are other associated signs of cataract. More unfortunate is that this vision loss and other complications of cataract cannot be corrected with the help of the glasses or contact lenses and surgery is the only permanent solution to this problem. Laser Vision Center Lahore are successfully performing these surgical procedures. Now you can book online appointments for this surgical procedure on Marham.

How is it Cured?

Indeed the cataract and its effect on vision loss sound frightening but still, it is curable. Modern cataract surgery tremendously restores vision lost due to the cataract and often reduces the dependence on glasses after the surgery. The cataract surgery is based on the removal of the lens which is cloudy and it’s replacement with an artificial lens. This artificial lens helps to restore the clear vision. The surgical time is almost half an hour but the patient can take one month to recover.

Modern Surgical Procedure for Cataract:

Most modern cataract procedures are based on the use of a high-frequency ultrasound device that breaks up the cloudy lens with its rays into small pieces. These pieces are then gently removed from the eye with suction. This procedure is called phacoemulsification or “phaco,” and can be performed with smaller incisions than old surgical procedures of cataract removal. This modern procedure promotes faster healing reducing the risk of surgical complications like retinal detachment.

Laser Cataract Surgery:

Recently, a number of femto lasik laser procedures in Lahore similar to the lasers used to create the corneal flap. In all laser LASIK is used. This is different from other laser procedure as it involves following steps:

  1. Creating corneal incisions
  2. Removing the lens anterior capsule
  3. Fragmenting the cataract
  4. Creating peripheral corneal incisions to reduce astigmatism

This laser technology tremendously improves the accuracy of certain steps of cataract surgery but it may not necessarily improve safety, recovery time and visual outcomes in every case.
