Any clouding or opacity of the lens of the eye is called cataract. The presence of cataract is not hazardous to the health of the eye unless the cataract becomes completely white (mature). A mature cataract causes blindness and can cause inflammation in the eye with pain, redness and headache.Once affected, cataract will result in gradual decline of eye sight. Cataract can effectively be cured through surgery. Though conventional cataract surgery and keyhole surgery are popular methods, LASER CATARACT SURGERY (Blade-free) & micro-cataract surgery, are advanced techniques that are more safe and effective.
There are different types of cataract. Cataract by birth is called congenital cataract. It can also be caused by injuries to the eye, which is called traumatic cataract.Most common is age-related cataract in which the normal process of ageing causes the lens to harden and become cloudy. Diseases such as diabetes can also cause cataract or aggravate it.
