Cataract is the clouding of the natural lens in the eye. This lens is responsible for focusing and producing clear sharp images. Due to cataract, the vision dims since it prevents light from passing beyond the lens and focusing on the retina
Normally, cataract develops as a natural process of ageing. At Aayush Eye Clinic, we normally see patients above the age of 50 years with Cataract. However, few patients in the age group of 30-40 years are detected with Cataract. Although rare, cataract is also sometimes detected in infants and young adults.
The most important aspect of a Cataract evaluation is the selection of the most suitable Intra-Ocular lens and for that at Aayush Eye Clinic we use state-of-the-art equipment:
The IOL Master - 500(Carl Zeiss) - Optical Biometer for Accurate Lens power Calculation
HD - OCT - (Cirrus) with Anterior and Posterior both(Carl Zeiss Germany)

May not be, it depends on your general health and the condition of your eye, and also the type of your surgery that is planned. Generally after a short time you can resume your active life style.
To fully reap the benefits of a micro incision in a Phaco surgery, you need a foldable IOL. They pass through incisions as small as 1.8-2.65 mm with the help of newest generation unfolders. Thus your surgery will be almost an outpatient procedure! No Blood, No Stitch, No Injection. Only micro incision-foldable IOLs can make it for you!
If you compare the disadvantages of traditional surgery, inability to attend work/business for some days, poor vision etc. you will yourself appreciate that the marginal increase in cost of surgery is more than compensated.
Very often not. You may need to wear glasses only to fine tune your vision. These are normal glasses and not those ‘thick’ spectacles as in the past.
