WHAT IS CATARACT? The human crystalline lens, which is clear and transparent is part of the focusing mechanism of the eye. With age, the lens becomes cloudy and opaque, thereby hampering normal vision. Any opacity in the crystalline lens, which leads to decreased vision, is cataract.
When to go for Cataract Removal?
When to go for Cataract Removal?
Cataract should be removed as soon as it begins to affect daily activities. With any of the above mentioned symptoms setting in, it is the right time to go for Cataract removal. DO NOT WAIT FOR THE CATARACT TO GET MATURE as unnecessary delay can lead to avoidable complications and more difficult surgery. Cataract surgery can be undertaken successfully in any season. Summer or rainy season have absolutely no effect on the outcome of the cataract surgery.

What is phacoemulsification with foldable IOL ?
In phacoemulsification, ultrasound power is used to break the hard cataract into minute pieces, which are then sucked out through a small 1.5-2.8mm incision. A foldable lens (IOL) of the required power is then implanted. The soft construction allows the lens implant to be folded for insertion through a 1.5 to 2.8mm micro incision. Once in place, the lens unfolds to its regular size of 6 mm.

" Simple Tips for Healthy Eyes "

Your eyes are an important part of your health. There are many things you can do to keep them healthy and make sure you are seeing your best. Follow these simple steps for maintaining healthy eyes well into your golden years.
Have a comprehensive dilated eye exam. You might think your vision is fine or that your eyes are healthy, but visiting your eye care professional for a comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to really be sure. 
When it comes to common vision problems, some people don’t realize they could see better with glasses or contact lenses. In addition, many common eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and age-related macular degeneration often have no warning signs. A dilated eye
exam is the only way to detect these diseases in their early stages.
During a comprehensive dilated eye exam, your eye care professional places drops in your eyes to dilate, or widen, the pupil to allow more light to enter the eye the same way an open door lets more light into a dark room. This enables your eye care professional to get a good look at the back of the eyes and examine them for any signs of damage or disease. Your eye care professional is the only one who can determine if your eyes are healthy and if you’re seeing your best.
Know your family’s eye health history. Talk to your family members about their eye health history. It’s important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with a disease or condition since many are hereditary. This will help to determine if you are at higher risk for developing an eye disease or condition.
Eat right to protect your sight. You’ve heard carrots are good for your eyes. But eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or collard greens is important for keeping your eyes healthy, too.i Research has also shown there are eye health benefits from eating fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut.
Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma. If you are having trouble maintaining a healthy weight, talk to your doctor.
Wear protective eyewear. Wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities around the home. Protective eyewear includes safety glasses and goggles, safety shields, and eye guards specially designed to provide the correct protection for a certain activity. Most protective eyewear lenses are made of polycarbonate, which is 10 times stronger than other plastics. Many eye care providers sell protective eyewear, as do some sporting goods stores.
Quit smoking or never start. Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for the rest of your body. Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness.
Be cool and wear your shades. Sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, but their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. When purchasing sunglasses, look for ones that block out 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.
Give your eyes a rest. If you spend a lot of time at the computer or focusing on any one thing, you sometimes forget to blink and your eyes can get fatigued. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. This can help reduce eyestrain.
Clean your hands and your contact lensesproperly. To avoid the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. Make sure to disinfect contact lenses as instructed and replace them as appropriate.
Practice workplace eye safety. Employers are required to provide a safe work environment. When protective eyewear is required as a part of your job, make a habit of wearing the appropriate type at all times and encourage your coworkers to do the same.

Computer  Vision Syndrome  [ C.V.S ]
What is Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)?
A simple definition of CVS is “the complex of eye and vision problems which are experienced by computer users”.
CVS can be used to refer to the entirety of visual problems experienced at computers and therefore improve communication and reference to these problems. However, since there is not a single factor or visual disorder which causes the visual problems at computers, CVS necessarily encompasses many different symptoms disorders and treatments.
The following are the symptoms of computer vision syndrome
• Eyestrain
• Headache
• Blurred vision
• Dry or irritated eyes
• Neck / back aches
• Photophobia
• Double vision
• Glare
• Flicker.

How to Prevent and Reduce the Symptoms of   C.V.S.

Some important factors in preventing or reducing the symptoms of CVS have to do with the computer and how it is used. This includes lighting conditions, chair comfort, location of reference materials, position of the monitor, and the use of rest breaks.
Location of computer screen - Most people find it more comfortable to view a computer when the eyes are looking downward. Optimally, the computer screen should be 15 to 20 degrees below eye level (about 4 or 5 inches) as measured from the center of the screen and 20 to 28 inches from the eyes.
Reference materials - These materials should be located above the keyboard and below the monitor. If this is not possible, a document holder can be used beside the monitor. The goal is to position the documents so you do not need to move your head to look from the document to the screen.
Lighting - Position the computer screen to avoid glare, particularly from overhead lighting or windows. Use blinds or drapes on windows and replace the light bulbs in desk lamps with bulbs of lower wattage.
Anti-glare screens - If there is no way to minimize glare from light sources, consider using a screen glare filter. These filters decrease the amount of light reflected from the screen.
Seating position - Chairs should be comfortably padded and conform to the body. Chair height should be adjusted so your feet rest flat on the floor. If your chair has arms, they should be adjusted to provide arm support while you are typing. Your wrists shouldn't rest on the keyboard when typing.
Rest breaks - To prevent eyestrain, try to rest your eyes when using the computer for long periods. Rest your eyes for 15 minutes after two hours of continuous computer use. Also, for every 20 minutes of computer viewing, look into the distance for 20 seconds to allow your eyes a chance to refocus.
Blinking - To minimize your chances of developing dry eye when using a computer, make an effort to blink frequently. Blinking keeps the front surface of your eye moist.
Regular eye examinations and proper viewing habits can help to prevent or reduce the development of the symptoms associated with Computer Vision Syndrome.

Correct Seating  Position
"  When To See an  Ophthalmologist  "
When do I see an Ophthalmologist?

You have had recurrent conjunctivitis, or red eyes
You experience problems with too many or too few tears
You are currently taking steroids orally for any other condition

Dos   and  don'ts   after  Cataract   Surgery  
" What You Should Do "
When you are leaving the hospital  (10 minutes after surgery) you will be given a special pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from sunlight. Wear these for the next few days any time that you need to go outside.
It is important to get two to three days rest after surgery, Keep the protective covering over your eye whenever you sleep for the next few days,
Expect some discomfort and itchiness around the eye, as well as mild blurred vision, sensitivity to lights, and even a mild headache. All of these symptoms are common and are no reason to be concerned. As soon as your vision clears up, you will be able to read, watch TV, or any other activity that is light or requires little activity. If you work at a computer you may continue to do so, but do not expect to go back to work at a construction site for several more weeks.

[ If after week or so, you are still experiencing symptoms, the symptoms worsen significantly, you experience a sudden drop in quality of vision, or black spots or streaks appear, contact your doctor immediately.]

Follow-up appointments will be scheduled the day after and a few weeks after the procedure. It is very important that you attend these so that the surgeon can determine if the recovery process is going smoothly.
Apply  medical Drops as per Doctor's Advice regularly,.

" What You Should Not Do "
Before going into surgery, it is important that you find someone to drive you home because you will not be able to drive until the next day.
Do not perform any kind of strenuous activity such as heavy lifting or running for a few days.

Took my grandmother at this ophthalmologist centre to treat her cataract. The doctor over here performed proficient surgery on her and now she is doing great.
