What Is a Cataract?

A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens of the eye, causing hazy or blurry vision with reduced colour perception. A cataract begins gradually as you age, and it can be removed through surgery with full restoration of the eyesight in most cases.

Causes and Symptoms

Old age is the primary cause of cataracts, although there are plenty of equally significant other variables that can lead to cataracts. These include:

  • Genetic disorders
  • Underlying medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, smoking, etc.

The symptoms of a cataract include:

  • Blurred vision, which cannot be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses
  • Problems in reading printed material
  • Night vision problems, including experiencing glare while driving in the night
  • Seeing halos around lights
  • Frequent need to change eyeglasses

Frequently Asked Questions

Post cataract surgery, patients recover within hours and are usually discharged the same day. However, it may take at least a few days for your vision to be completely restored. You might experience some side effects also after the surgery, which usually improve after a few days.

Cataract surgery is not painful because the eye drops applied to your eyes before the surgery have a numbing effect so that you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. These drops start wearing off within a few minutes after the surgery.

It would take a couple of hours to start seeing clearly after cataract surgery if there isn’t any other secondary ocular condition involved post-surgery.

The final cost of cataract surgery depends on several variables, including the lens quality being implanted, the size of the incision and the type of cataract surgery procedure, and more. The cost for the procedure will also vary if you have insurance. Nonetheless, the average cost of cataract surgery at Dr. Akbar Eye Hospital typically ranges between 14,999 to 99,999.
