Cataract eye surgery at Roshni Eye Hospital
Cataract surgery at Roshni Eye Hospital

Roshni Eye is well equipped to conduct advanced small /micro incision cataract eye surgery. We have the advanced Millenium phacoemulsification system by Bausch & Lomb and cold phaco system on the venture platform which helps reduce the phaco energy required thereby reducing the damage to the eye.A three door joint less modern theatre that maintains the clean air and air circulation in its optimum sterile condition aids the successful surgical outcomes.

Why cataract eye surgery?

Cataract is the clouding of the natural lens of the eye that reduces the amount of light entering the eye and causes either a qualitative or quantitative drop in vision.

The only solution for this being its removal and replacement with an intra ocular lens (IOL).The procedure consists of emulsification and aspiration of the pre existing cloudy lens with the help of ultrasound (known as phacoemulsification) through a small incision in the cornea.

We offer our patients the latest in IOL technology ,the lenses ranging from monofocal aspheric aberration corrected lenses to the ReSTOR & Tecnis multifocal IOLs and the astigmatism correcting Toric IOLs. We offer the latest generation of multifocal IOLs with astigmatism correcting Toric Multifocals Lenses as an option in correcting refractive errors. To minimize calculation errors in the implanted IOLs we have the Immersion Biometry

All surgeries are done with NO INJECTION (Eye drop anesthesia) /No STITCH and NO PATCH technique

Q:What is Cataract?
A: Cataract is the clouding of the natural lens of the eye and this stops the passage of light rays into the eye.

Q: How will I know I am developing cataract?
A: Since the passage of rays of light is hampered ,it can cause
• Gradual painless drop in vision that is progressive and ultimately only perception of light remains.
• Frequent change of glasses
• Glare/haloes of light making driving or crossing of roads difficult.
• Needing more light to read.

Q: What are the causes of Cataract?
A: Ageing is the most common cause for cataract.Every single person is affected by it.But the symptoms caused may differ. Diabetes,Use of certain medications (esp.steroids),direct/indirect inhury to the eye,other eye diseases like uveitis,glaucoma ,high myopias etc are known to get cataract more often.

Q: When do I decide to get operated?
The decision to get operated depends on a lot of factors,especially on the person undergoing the surgery.Factors which might aid decision making are:
• If the vision disturbance is affecting day to day activities like crossing roads,reading,driving
• General medical condition of the person which includes diabetes,blood pressure,heart problems,kidney condition etc.
• Age : cataracts could get harder with age and the recovery response of the eye gets slower.
• A combination of the above factors has to be considered to take a decision to undergo surgery.Please consult your doctor if there are queries.

Q: What are the different procedures for undergoing cataract surgery?
• SICS: Small Incision Caataract Surgery: this is a manual procedure with an incision size of 5-7 mm
• Phacoemulsification: Here Ultrasound energy is used to breakdown the cataract into small pieces and emulsify (breaking into micro pieces) it and then swash and suck it out of the eye.

Q: Is it a painful procedure?
A: No cataract surgeries aren’t painful

Q: Do I get injection in the eye before surgery?
A: Cataract surgeries can be done with or without injection.The injection is for anesthetizing the eye and reduce the mobility of the eye. Most cataract surgeries at Roshni are done without injection around the eye.

Q: What is eye drop Anaesthesia?
A: Only Anaesthetic eye drops are put in the eye before and during surgery.This only numbs the pain sensation of the eye and the patient is comfortable.This method reduces the complications of an injection around an eye and eye patching that is required after surgery for recovery from anaesthesia.
It is a very safe procedure.
Most surgeries at Roshni are doe bye this method.


Q: What are the types of Lenses used?
A: I) IOLs can be rigid (these need larger incisions) or foldable ( they require smaller incisions )
II)Monofocal: are single focus lenses and correct either distance or near vision
Multifocal: These are lenses that correct both distance ,intermediate and near vision.
III) Toric IOLs : these IOLs correct the preexisting Astigmatism.They are either Monofocal or multifocal
