Cataracts

Cataracts can be due to trauma, diabetes ,genetics or a normal feature of the aging process of the eye. The cells of the lens within the eye become less able to push water out from inside, and the lens permanently fogs up like a window on a humid day.

There is a procedure routinely used to remove the affected lens and replace it with an artificial lens called an IOL to help you see as clearly as possible after the treatment, reducing the dependence on distance glasses, but you may still need to use glasses for reading.


How do I know if I need cataract surgery?

The usual symptoms are cloudy dull vision, sensitivity to strong sunlight or oncoming headlights while night-driving, and sometimes rings or shadows around bright lights.

People often believe that a cataract must be "ripe" or in a highly advanced stage to be removed. This is not the case ,in fact a cataract can be removed at different stages of maturity .

If you have been diagnosed with a cataract or you start to experience visual symptoms, such has "blurred ,foggy vision ,double vision "halos" appearing around lights or spots or patches in your vision then contact Samaya for an appointment to see one of our Ophthalmologists


How long does the surgery take?

The procedure typically lasts between 15 and 30 minutes, though you may need to allow two to three from walking in to walking out.


Would I be awake during the treatment?

Most Cataract surgery is performed using a local anesthetic administered by eye drop medication, some times your doctor may prescribe a medication to help you feel more relaxed during the surgery.

You should always bring a companion on the day of surgery and make arrangements to be driven home.
