The lens of the eye which is made of water and protein helps focus light into the retina through which visual signals are sent to the brain. Excess of protein building leads to lens blocking. The cloud form on your eye lens due to excess protein reduces vision due to blockage of light passing to the retina. This excess protein built-up which leads to lens blockage is called cataract.
Cataract is considered as a normal process of aging. At our center for cataract treatment we come across patients from the age group of 60 plus. Few patient cases in the age group of 45-60 are also detected for femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery at our Mumbai center.
Some of the more common symptoms of cataract include:
If you are facing such symptoms then an early detection of cataract will help you take a decision under the professional guidance of our Doctors.
People with a cataract in only one eye may notice a loss of depth perception; this can cause problems in judging where stairs are and determining the distance of cars driving in front of them.

lens replacement surgery render accurate correction for vision. If you would like to be femtosecond laser and it will also a leading reason why cataract surgeons are excited about their potential, due to the automation these lasers can provide – in creating the capsulorhexis and in pre-chopping the nucleus, reducing the overall energy needed to remove the cataract.
Our surgeons are all highly trained and have had extensive experience with the most up-to-date techniques used for cataract surgery. The OSC offers a relaxed and friendly setting for the patient and the patient’s family. Shortly after surgery is completed, the patient may go home and resume almost all routine activities.
It must be understood that complications may occur in all types of surgery. In cataract treatment, haemorrhage, infection, and swelling are all possible, but very uncommon. The chance of any significant cataract surgery complications is less than 1%. It is among the safest and most successful procedure in the medical field. However, if a problem does arise, prompt treatment may resolve it.
About a year after surgery, approximately 20% of the patients who undergo femtosecond Laser cataract surgery develop a haze of the capsular membrane surrounding the lens implant. Should this occur, YAG laser treatment is recommended. The YAG laser is used to create an opening in the clouded membrane, which significantly improves the patient’s vision. It is one of the safest treatments used in ophthalmology. It is painless, requires no anaesthesia or incision, and takes only minutes to complete.
Laser in cataract render accurate correction for vision. Laser in cataract also is a leading reason why cataract surgeons are excited about their potential, due to the automation these lasers can provide – in creating the capsulorhexis and in pre-chopping the nucleus, reducing the overall energy needed to remove the cataract. Depending on the growth of cataract & the damage it causes to your vision, the call to remove it is taken. A larger portion of cloudiness in your eye lens can impair vision partially or completely. In such cases, it is advisable to have a cornea transplant in Mumbai at our clinic, The Vission Eye Center.
Presently, there is no medication, eye drops, exercises or glasses to cure or prevent cataracts. Surgery is the only way to remove a cataract. Cataract surgery is one of the most safest and common type of surgery. Cataracts cannot be removed with a laser, only through surgical incision. In cataract surgery the cloudy lens is removed from the eye.
The focusing power of the removed lens is achieved by replacing it with a permanent intraocular lens implant (IOL), which has been selected to suit the specific eye measurements of each patient. The expense of Cataract surgery is an essential subject on the grounds that it is the most regularly performed surgery on the planet.
