What Is Cataract?
As we grow older, the eye’s natural lens can stiffen, harden and begin to lose its clarity, forming a cataract. The natural lens in your eye tends to become cloudier and harder with age and your vision may appear as though you are looking through a “frosted” window because light cannot be properly focused on the retina (back of the eye), resulting in an unclear image.
What Are the Symptoms of a Cataract?
> Cloudy or blurred vision
> Sensitivity to light and glare
> Poor night vision
> Dull or faded colours
> Frequent changes in glasses prescription, not providing clear vision
Who is Commonly Affected by Cataract?
Cataract is a common problem among people above the age of 60-65 years. Even though cataracts progress slowly, they tend to interfere with the clarity of our vision on a daily basis. And, therefore, to get rid of the cataract, the natural lens of the eye needs to be removed surgically and replaced with an artificial one.
How is a Cataract Surgery done?
Cataract surgery is a microsurgery, a tiny incision (3mm) is made on the side of the cornea. Through this insertion, the doctor inserts a tiny probe, using high frequency sound waves (phacoemulsification) the cataract is broken up & removed from the eye via the fine probe. The membrane that surrounds the natural lens of the eye is left intact. This membrane (capsular bag) provides support for the new, intraocular lens (IOL). The IOL is made of plastic, silicone or acrylic. The IOL is folded and inserted through the same micro-incision, it unfolds in the eye into its permanent position. The techniques and results of cataract surgery have undergone a sea of change during the past few decades, with smaller incisions and foldable lenses being implanted through them becoming more the norm than the exception. In fact, most of the cataract surgeries performed in the world today use this surgical technique with excellent visual outcomes, patient safety, and efficacy.
How much time does it take to recover?
Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to improve your vision. Because of the size and location of the incision, stitches are rarely needed, and the eye heals rapidly. After the surgery, your vision may appear cloudy or blurry once you have removed the eye shield for the first time and it may take some time for your visual system to adjust to the removal of the cataract and adapt to the intraocular lens used to replace your eye’s natural lens.
What are the types of surgeries available?
Sutureless Cataract Surgery
Phacoemulsification is the latest mechanically-assisted extracapsular technique of cataract extraction. The word ‘Phacoemulsification’ means emulsification or liquefaction of the natural lens of the eye and makes cataract surgery a safe and effective surgical procedure.

Premium Intraocular Lenses
What is an Intraocular Lens (IOL)?
An Intraocular Lens (IOL) replaces the focusing power of your eye’s natural lens. Today’s IOL technology can give you better vision without glasses than before cataract surgery. A thorough evaluation of your eyes is conducted along with an evaluation of your work, physical activities, and lifestyle before recommending an IOL to make sure it fits your lifestyle.
Why choose Premium Intraocular Lenses?
At The Caring Touch, we offer the most advanced lens implants after cataract removal. These premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) give you the best possible vision. With premium IOLs, most people never need glasses after the cataract surgery, or only wear them occasionally.
What are the types of Intraocular Lenses?
> Standard (single-focus) IOLs
> Toric IOLs
> Multifocal IOLs
> Accommodating IOLs
> Standard IOLs (Single-focus)
Standard IOLs give you sharp, clear focusing power at a single distance, either close up (near vision) or far away (distance vision). They are also called single-focus or monofocal IOLs. If you choose an IOL for near vision, you wear glasses to drive or see objects at a distance. If your IOL is designed for distance vision, you wear glasses for reading and other close-up activities. You might choose one IOL for near vision and one for distance. This is called monovision.
> Toric IOLs
Toric IOLs are specifically offered to patients with moderate astigmatism for better vision without glasses. Astigmatism, a common eye condition caused by an irregularly shaped cornea or lens, causes distorted or blurred vision. If you only have astigmatism in one eye, you only need one Toric lens for that particular eye.
> Multifocal IOLs
Multifocal IOLs are another category of IOLs that can decrease your need for reading glasses or computer glasses after the cataract surgery and also provide added magnification in different parts of the lens to expand your range of vision so you can see objects clearly at all distances without glasses or contact lenses.
> Accommodating IOLs
Accommodating IOLs give you clear vision without glasses at a greater range of distances — near, far and mid-range — compared to a standard IOL. These lenses have a hinge that flexes with your eye muscles to change the lens focus. Almost all IOL wearers saw well enough without glasses to pass a driver’s license exam, read the newspaper, and also offers very good night vision. With conventional IOLs, you need to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses in order to use a computer, read or perform other close-up activities within arm’s length whereas Accommodating IOLs are premium intraocular lenses that expand the range of clear vision significantly. Depending on your vision and lifestyle needs, you may choose an implant with a slightly different focus in each eye.
