The eye cataract is a process tied to the aging of the body, similar to the emergence of wrinkles or gray hair. Hence, this problem affects all people with no exception. The time period for cataract development is related to a host of factors, making it difficult to predict how rapidly it will affect the quality and comfort of vision.
The cataract of a progressing clouding of the eye lens. The main purpose of the lens is the cration of sharp images at the fundus. As the cataract progresses, the lens loses its most vital quality, its clarity. The progressing cloudiness disables a sharp projection of an image on the retina, causing worse vision. The cataract may be developing for many years. Those afflicted commonly notice the initial symptoms when deteriorating vision begins to intrude on their normal life. A cataract is removed surgically, and if left untreated may lead to permanent loss of vision. It remains the leading cause of blindness in the world.
Cataracts may occur in younger people as well, for instance those struggling with myopia, diabetes, and it can also have an acquired or congenital character. Cataract may also come as a result of trauma/injury, or be workplace-related (e.g. „welder’s cataract”). Surgical cataract removal is the most frequent ophthalmic procedure in the world.
Cataract surgery last approx. 15 – 30 minutes and allows the patient to return home the same day.
Initial symptoms may be unnoticeable, or very slight. The cloudiness of the lens is not accompanied by any pain or bloodshot eyes. The affliction features a host of various visual defects, dependant on the blurrings’ location. For this reason, any noticeable reduction in vision, such as low acuity or blurred image should be considered a warning sign. In such a case it is advised to reach out to an expert immediately to evaluate the cause of affliction.
The patient’s tasks
The patient’s tasks begin with arranging a visit in our clinic. The purpose of the qualifying examination is a thorough patient testing and the selection of an optimal lens. A time period of 1-3 hours should be allocated for the cataract removal treatment. The appointment will begin with a medical interview and filling out a questionnaire. If there had been tests performed prior to the treatment, please bring their results to the qualifying examination.
At this time, ophthalmic surgeons and patients have a wide selection of artificial intraocular lenses, designed for implantation in place of the cloudy lens. Individual models differ from each other in shape and construction material.
With the rise of technology, our patients’ needs expand, as do their expectations regarding quality of life and visual acuity following cataract surgery (hopefully forgoing the need for additional pairs of glasses). Lens implants utilised in cataract surgery can be divided into standard, and Premium groups.
