Palak eye clinic is one of the latest & Hi-tech eye clinic / Hospital in ahmedabad located at well known place Akhbarnagar circle on 132 ft. Ring road.
Cataract is the clouding of the natural crystalline lens and typically occurs because of ageing, although other reasons may be prolonged use of steroids, exposure to ultra violet and associated health problems like diabetes and eye injuries.
Surgery is the only known effective treatment for cataract removal. All cataract surgeries are aimed at removal of the cloudy natural lens and replacing it with an Intraocular Lens(IOL). At Palak Eye Clinic Phacoemulsification is performed ( No stitch surgery) and a foldable IOL is inserted. There are multiple IOL choices available for the surgery which are explained below. These lenses can be inserted through a small 1.8 to 2.8 mm opening
Several techniques used for removing cataract are:
In this method a tiny instrument is inserted through a very small incision. The instrument uses ultrasound vibrations to break the cataract into fine pieces; these are then gently suctioned out. The new lens is then inserted into the eye. Usually no stitches are required to close the incision. This minimal surgery allows faster and safer healing, hastening your return to normal activity.
Micro-incision cataract surgery (MICS):
This is a new technique where the cataract is removed manually through micro incision ( 2.2 mm incision ). The small incision heals fast enabling you to recover quickly.
