what is cataract?
A cataract often develops slowly, affecting one or both eyes. Aging, eye injuries or diseases such as diabetes are just some of the causes of a cataract.
With healthy eyes, the lens focuses the light on the retina – creating a clear image. Yet a cataract leads to the clouding of the eye’s lens and to reduced light passing through it. As a result, people with a cataract experience unclear vision and decreased quality of life.

Today, surgery for cataract is fast, simple and effective and can even be carried out as an outpatient.
The surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL). IOLs are cutting-edge artificial lenses made from soft acrylic material implanted in the eye through a tiny microincision by your surgeon. Once inserted in the eye, the IOL lens replaces the focusing power lost due to cataract, restoring your vision to what it was, years before.
You should be able to go home on the same day as your cataract surgery. You may have a pad and plastic shield over your eye when you leave hospital, which can usually be removed the day after surgery.
Feeling should start to return to your eye within a few hours of surgery, but it may take a few days for your vision to fully return.
It’s normal to have: grittiness, watering, blurred vision, double vision, red or bloodshot eye. These side effects usually improve within a few days but it can take 4 to 6 weeks to recover fully. If you need new glasses, you won’t be able to order them until your eye has completely healed – usually after 6 weeks.
Cataract surgery has a high success rate in improving your eyesight and should allow you to return to your normal activities, like driving.”
