Cataract formation is a natural part of the eye's aging process. Cataract surgery is a common procedure; most people regain the vision they had earlier with the help of microsurgery. Patients can usually return home one hour after surgery. General information about cataract surgery:
What Is A Cataract?
Inside our eye is a lens, which is a like clear glass. The lens focuses the light rays coming into the eye on the retina at the back of the eye which is sent to the brain for us to see. For perfect vision the lens should be clear, but with age when the lens becomes cloudy, dull or opaque, light cannot pass through it and the vision becomes dim or blurred. Later when the lens is totally opaque, there is total loss of vision but it is reversible. Any cloudy lens is called a cataract.
Causes of Cataract
The most common cause of cataract is aging.
There may be other causes like diabetes, kidney disease, glaucoma, smoking
Eye injuries (Traumatic Cataract) and inflammation (Uveitis) inside the eye.
Prolonged use of certain medications (Steroids) can also lead to cataract formation.
