All About Cataract and Its Treatment
As we age, our eyes naturally undergo changes that can lead to cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens, which can cause blurry vision and reduced colour perception. This condition is often associated with ageing but can also be caused by eye injuries, medications, and certain medical conditions. Fortunately, advanced cataract surgery is a safe and effective treatment for removing cataracts.
During cataract surgery, a small incision is made in the eye, and a technique called phacoemulsification also referred to as laser in layman's terms, is used to break up the cloudy lens before it is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. With quick recovery time and improved vision within days after the procedure, laser surgery has become a popular choice for those who want to improve their quality of life.
Types of Cataract
NUCLEAR SCLEROTIC CATARACTS
Nuclear Sclerotic Cataracts are a type of cataract that occurs when the central portion of the crystalline lens becomes hard and yellowed over time, causing vision to become blurry or cloudy. They are a common type of age-related cataract and can make it difficult to see objects clearly, particularly at a distance. People with Nuclear Sclerotic Cataracts can face problems in night driving as well as difficulty in distinguishing colours.
Cortical cataracts are a type of cataract that develops in the outer layer of the eye's lens. They commonly begin as wedge-shaped opacities or white, opaque regions that migrate inward towards the lens's centre. As the cataract progresses, it may cause glare, halos surrounding lights, and impaired contrast sensitivity, making it difficult to see in low light or discriminate between things that are similar in colour or brightness.
POSTERIOR SUBCAPSULAR CATARACTS
Posterior subcapsular cataracts are types of cataracts that form on the posterior surface of the eye's lens. They usually begin as tiny, opaque spots and gradually expand to encompass a greater piece of the lens. This type of cataract is more common in young people than cortical or nuclear sclerotic cataracts. The rate of progression varies, although it is faster than in nuclear sclerosis. Posterior subcapsular cataracts can interfere with reading, glare, and colour perception.
