About a disease

Description

A cataract is a dense, cloudy area that forms in the lens of the eye. Cataracts are a haze of the lens of the eye, leading to a decrease in the passage of light rays and a decrease in visual acuity.

Cataract is the main cause of blindness and visual impairment in the world. One person out of every six suffers from cataract after 40 years. Every second person develops cataract after 80 years. According to statistics, 3.7% of the world population suffers from cataract

Symptoms

– Gradual reduction of visual acuity

– Blurred vision

– Brightness and contrast of colors decrease

– Pupil color changed, it can turn white

Diagnostics

Diagnosis of cataracts is not difficult for ophthalmologists. Modern equipment allows you to detect the first signs of the disease during examination.

Treatment

The only possibility to eliminate the pathology is microsurgical surgery, which consists in removing the clouded lens of the eye with its replacement with an artificial lens – implantation of an intraocular lens . The service life of the artificial lens is more than 50 years.

Currently, a high-tech method of seamless surgery is used, in which cataract removal is carried out by ultrasonic phacoemulsification or laser grinding of cataracts is carried out with subsequent suction of lens fragments, after which the artificial lens is implanted through an ultra-small incision. During these operations, the incision is so small that it does not need to be sewn.
