The Cataract & Primary Eye Care Service of Sanjivni Eye And Medicare Centre provides comprehensive eye care and treatment of patients with conditions that affect vision and ocular health including eye examinations and evaluation and surgical care for cataracts
Nearly everyone will develop cataracts at some point. Typically, a cataract needs to be removed only when vision loss interferes with your everyday activities, such as driving or watching TV
However common in the age of 60s and above, a cataract can develop in any age group like teenage and younger adults. Some children may also be born with congenital cataract
Some types of cataract develop quickly, others more slowly. A change in eyeglass prescription can sometimes improve vision but eventually the cataract reaches a point where changing the eyeglass prescription is no longer helpful. At that point, the only option to restore vision is to remove the cataract. Removing the cataract and replacing it with an intraocular lens implant (IOL) will remove the cloudiness and help restore the focusing power the eye had before the cataract formed.
