|The procedure is less painful
|The procedure is completed in 35 to 40 minutes
How is blade-free cataract surgery done?
During the painless blade-free cataract surgery, the laser beam is used to enter into the eye of the cornea and take out the cloudy lens through an artificial lens referred to as ‘Intraocular Lens’. Before beginning with the corneal incision, the oculist will perform OCT Optical coherence Tomography to map and measure the thickness of the retina.
The high-resolution cross-sectional images through OCT help the surgeon in making the precise incision. The laser beam penetrates through the incision and removes the cataract, a clouding on the natural eye lens. Intraocular lens IOL replaces the cloudy natural lens restoring the vision. Other advantages that make it more preferred include its ability to treat differently the refractive error that is unique to each eye irrespective of how identical they appear. Some characteristics vary between two eyes like anterior chamber depth, corneal curvature, and axial length.
Therefore, we need to opt for the surgical procedure that caters well to these unique features of the eyes, and Blade free Cataract surgery marks better results than traditional cataract surgery in all the ways and processes

In older people, it is a matter of age when nerves, the lens of the eye becomes weak and more prone to disorders and deformities.

Phacoemulsification is a procedure of removing cataracts, making use of ultrasound tips to break or emulsify the cataract. The process begins with giving anesthesia to the area behind the eyeball, followed by making a small incision and insert fluid into the eye to prevent shock to intraocular tissues. A water stream through a small incision in the membrane that surrounds cataract free the cataract from the cortex and the ultrasound waves emulsify the cataract. The surgeon removes the cortex of the lens and leaves the posterior capsule exposed for inserting IOL. After insertion, the surgery is over.
Extracapsular cataract extraction is similar to the former process of cataract treatment. The only difference being it involves large incisions as surgical tools and instruments separate the cataract from the cortex. The rest of the procedure remains the same as in Phacoemulsification. This type of surgery is a matter of choice for patients suffering from severe eye complications and problems.
Before this technique of Phacoemulsification, the procedure of cataract surgery was Intracapsular cataract extraction. The process involves the removal of the eye lens along with the posterior capsule. It has a high-risk ratio due to large incisions it makes and the pressure it exerts on the vitreous body.
As there are variations in the methods of surgical procedures for cataract removal there, comes many options in selecting the type of Intra Ocular Lens you want in your eye. Monofocal IOL or Multifocal IOL. The former has a single focal strength for distant vision. Reading books or magazines will require the person to make use of glasses or contact lenses. In Multifocal Lens, different areas of the lens have different focusing strengths.
The Toric soft lens has different meridians of the lens that respond to power differently and correct the asymmetric power of the eye or, in other words, the problem of astigmatism. These lenses have markings on the periphery of the lens that help the eye surgeon to rotate the lens for better alignment and treatment of astigmatism.
The best IOL for your eye is the one that the surgeon recommends you as he has complete insight and understanding about the nature of the problem and healing properties of the lens. Therefore have full faith in his decisions about the type of eye surgery and ILO he selects for your eye. However, feel free to discuss with him the pros and cons of all the methods and lens types.
