Open Your Eyes To Clear Vision

The lens of the eye is mainly composed of water and proteins. As we get older these proteins may begin to come together and cloud the lens. This clouding is called the cataract. Cataract surgery is the removal of the affected cataract from the eye and insertion of an artificial lens.

Before surgery you will be given eye drops to dialate your pupil. Area around eye will be washed and cleansed. Local anasthetic will be injected around your eye. You may also be offered a sedative. Most cataract surgeries last for more than one hour.

Types of cataract surgeries:
There are two types of cataract surgeries. The first procedure is phacoemulsification. In this procedure, the surgeon looks through an operating microscope and makes 3 small incisions less than one inch long in or near the cornea. An opening is made through the capsule of the lens and an ulstrasound probe is used to break the cloudy lens into tiny fragments. These fragments are vaccumed out through the incisions. Then an artificial intraocular lens is inserted. Intraocular lens is made of plastic, silicone or acrylic compounds. Stiching are generally not necessary in this procedure.

Another type of cataract surgery is called the Micro Phaco Cataract Surgery. It is nicknamed as pinhole surgery, as the incision size was very small. Faster healing and quicker rehabilitation is the main advantage of Micro Phaco Cataract Surgery. This surgery is ideally suited for people who want to start working soon after surgery. As this procedure is safer than conventional Cataract Surgery, patients with higher risk profile like diabetics and nephrology ideally opt for this procedure and is also the best option for complicated eye surgeries.

Experience the Joy of Clear Vision

Corneal Transplantation in simpler terms is an operation where the cornea of a patient is removed and replaced by a cornea from the donor. This is called as corneal grafting or keratoplasty. Cornea transplantation is usually done to improve the eyesight, replace the damaged cornea or to gain eyesight.

By using Contact lenses we might be able to delay or eliminate the need for transplantation and also there are many other semi-surgical procedures that can be done if the damage can be recognized before getting worse. These all can be only considered by the doctor, but the ultimate solution to cornea disorder is the corneal transplantation.
This surgery does not take too long. In the case of partial corneal transplantation, it only takes 20 to 30 minutes and for the conventional corneal transplantation surgery might last in between 40 to 50 minutes.

What is the success rate of corneal transplantation?
The overall success rate of a corneal transplant is about 85%. So that means 15% chances are there to fail or to cause risks that can be caused due to the rejection of new cornea by our body or even can be caused due to infection.
Normally corneal transplantation is a safe procedure, but in some cases the possible risks that can affect are bleeding, infection on cornea, and swelling, increased pressure in the eyeball that can cause glaucoma. Sometimes the stitches used to secure the donor cornea might become a risk factor.

Why Do You Have Sore Eyes ?

Corneal Ulcer (also called ulcerative keratitis) can be termed as an inflammation or an infection that have affected the cornea of our eye. Corneal ulcer must be considered as a vital threat as it can even lead to loss of vision.

The factor which leads to the development of corneal ulcer are chemical burns, and corneal exposure, misuse of a contact lens, disorders that cause dry eyes. Also, the children who have vitamin A deficiency are more prone to have cornea ulcer.

Usually seen symptoms of cornea ulcer involves excessive tearing of the infected eye, sore in eye, eyelids get swollen, appearance of white spots on cornea, most common symptom is sensitivity to light.

The most usually test to diagnose the corneal ulcer is a fluorescein eye stain, when this stain is placed in the eye the ulcers can be easily seen. if doctor spots an ulcer on your cornea, further investigation will be carried out to find out the root cause. Doctor may determine the cause by numbing your eye with eye drops and then gently scraping the ulcer to obtain a sample.

cornea ulcer can lead to various other problems mostly like chronic corneal inflammation, open sores on your cornea, can affect vision temporarily or even permanently, or even lead to blindness.

As the causes for cornea differ the treatments also differ. Once doctor discovers the cause of the corneal ulcer he/she may prescribe antibiotic or antiviral eye drops if the corneal ulcer is caused by bacteria. Corneal transplant procedure may be needed in severe cases.

It depends on treatments, a fully successful treatment can heal cornea ulcer in about 2 or 3 weeks. But still, treatments might continue on to reduce the risks of scarring on the cornea.

The latest developments in cataract surgery say bye to NO VISION

Cataract decreases the vision by clouding the eye lens. It develops gradually. Increased protein in the eye lens forms cataract that makes the vision cloudy. This cloudiness prevents light from passing through the lens, thus causes some vision loss. The older cells accumulated in the center of the lens form a cataract. Total vision deprival happens only when the opacity increases and this indicates the cataract’s maturity.

The general cause for Cataract is aging. The other causes of cataract are congenital anomalies, trauma, exposure to toxic substances, heavy radiation, using corticosteroids or diuretics, diabetic conditions.

The described common symptoms of Cataract are foggy, blurry vision, double vision, sudden changes in glasses prescription, a glaring problem during the day and night times, highly sensitive to sunlight & bright colors and poor vision at night-time.
