Our eyes are made up of 2 million working parts. Wouldn’t it be great if they functioned to the best of their abilities? You may want to consider cataract eye surgery if you’re tired of squinting and straining to see things clearly. Why not allow all 2 million parts of your eyes to function to the best of their ability to help you improve your vision and quality of life?
As people age, they can either develop a nuclear cataract or a cortical cataract. Nuclear cataracts form in the centre of the lens and become cloudy and harden over time. This type of cataract does not cause any symptoms; however, if it begins to interfere with your vision, you should have it looked at by an ophthalmologist.
Cortical cataracts form when an eye lens changes its shape and hardens. When this happens, vision can become blurred. Cataract surgery can treat this issue by surgically removing the blurry lens and replacing it with an artificial one.
What is cataract eye surgery?
Did you know that cataract eye surgery is one of the most perfected surgeries today? With time, people with cataracts may experience vision impairment as cataracts begin to harden. Opting for cataract surgery is a great way to treat and prevent vision impairment and blindness. Undergoing this surgery can be freeing and give you back the power of your vision.
Cataract eye surgery is a common procedure performed to remove the lens of the eye that has become cloudy or opaque. The procedure involves making an incision in the eye, breaking up the cataract, and removing it from the eye. An artificial lens is then inserted to replace the original lens. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis, which means that it is quick, and patients do not need to stay overnight. Cataract eye surgery is generally very safe and effective in improving vision. Patients usually report having a significant amount of improvement in their vision after cataract surgery.
How to naturally prevent the risk of cataracts
While developing cataracts can be genetic, they can also develop due to lifestyle choices. People can try to cut down the risk of developing cataracts by not smoking, not drinking excessively, and avoiding exposure to ultraviolet light. It can also be beneficial to consume fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E.
