Cataract surgery

What is a cataract?

A cataract is a cloudy patch that is formed in your eye lens, which eventually affects the vision. 

Why do you need cataract surgery?

Cataract will affect your daily activities and usually get worse over time. No medicines or eye drops have been proven to be effective in such conditions. Surgically replacing the cloudy lens with a new artificial lens is the best and only option you have to improve the vision. 

How is the cataract surgery procedure done?

Cataract surgery is an uncomplicated procedure which is performed as day surgery under local anaesthesia. During the surgery, your surgeon will create a cut by a scalpel or laser in your eye to take out the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial clear intraocular lens. The procedure usually lasts for 30 to 45 minutes and hence you should be able to go home on the same day. Then a protective shield will be placed on your eye to keep it safe in the early stage of healing. 

How much does the procedure cost?

INR 20,000 to INR 80,000.
