Phacoemulsification Surgery in India
People from all over the world are visiting India for phacoemulsification surgery. Phacoemulsification surgery is a procedure in which an ultrasonic device is used to break up and then remove a cloudy lens, or cataract, from the eye to improve vision. The insertion of an intraocular lens (IOL) usually immediately follows phacoemulsification. It is used to restore vision in patients whose vision has become cloudy from cataracts. India has some of the best hospitals and clinics in the world with the best medical facilities for this surgery. It has state of the art hospitals and the best-qualified lasik surgeons. With the best infrastructure, the best possible facilities, accompanied with the most competitive prices, a patient can get the phacoemulsification surgery done in India at the lowest charges at cities like Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Bangalore.
People might have cataracts for years before vision is impaired enough to warrant surgery. Eye doctors may first suggest eyeglasses to temporarily help improve vision. But as the lens grows cloudier, vision deteriorates. As cataracts develop and worsen, patients may notice these common symptoms: gradual (and painless) onset of blurry vision, poor central vision, frequent changes in prescription for corrective lenses, increased glare from lights, near vision improvement to the point where reading glasses may no longer be needed, poor vision in sunlight. Cataracts grow faster in younger people or diabetics, so doctors will recommend surgery more quickly in those cases. Surgery may also be recommended sooner if the patient suffers from other eye diseases such as agerelated macular degeneration and if the cataract interferes with complete eye examination. When symptoms worsen to the point that everyday activities become problematic, surgery becomes necessary. A complete ocular exam will determine the severity of the cataract and what type of surgery the patient will receive. For some denser cataracts, the older method of extracapsular extraction is preferred. The diagnostic exam should include measurement of visual acuity under both low and high illumination, microscopic examination of eye structures and pupil dilation, assessment of visual fields, and measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP). This surgery is done on an outpatient basis, so patients must arrange for someone to take them home after surgery. On the day of the surgery, doctors will review the pre-surgical tests and insert dilating eye drops, antibiotic drops, and a corticosteriod or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drop. Anesthetic eye drops will be given in both eyes to keep both eyes comfortable during surgery. A local anesthetic will be administered. Patients are awake for the surgery, but are kept in a relaxed state.
