Complex cataract surgeries

Majority of the cataract surgeries are performed using phaco-emulsification technique under Topical Anesthesia.
There are multiple IOL choices available for the surgeries which are explained below.These lenses can be inserted through a small 1.8 to 2.8 mm opening
Aberration free/ Aspheric IOLS
These IOLs gives good quality of post operative vision due to the lens design, it also improves the contrast sensitivity of the patient and good night vision. These lenses also filter the harmful UV light and blue light which are said to be harmful to the retina.
Toric IOLS

These IOLs correct the pre existing corneal astigmatism there by reducing the possibility of spectacle wear for distant vision post operatively.
Multifocal IOLs
These IOLs provide clear vision for all distances hence almost 90% of the day-to-day activities can be performed without the need for additional glasses. Rarely the patient may experience glare during nights post operatively but usually gets adapted within a few months.
Accomodating IOLs
These IOLs have flexible hinges that enables them to change focus for different distances hence providing clear distance, intermediate and near vision without glasses.
