In modern medicine, the operative method of
Cataract is part of the aging of the eye and the body. It is a state of opacity in the eye’s eye. The popular name is “inner curtain”. The normal lens is transparent and its function is to focus the light rays on the retina. As cataract progresses, light to full opacity occurs and obstruction of light transition and focusing on the retina. The main complain of this disease is a gradual decrease in vision. The condition usually affects both eyes, but almost always one eye is affected earlier than the other.
The common understanding of stopping the cataract by drugs and drops has long been denied because the oocyte does not have its own blood supply and the drugs can not penetrate the lens.
Frequent change of glasses is a temporary solution to the problem of cataracts, because very quickly after the development of the curtain they stop to help.
The main treatment for cataracts is operative. The current understanding is that the operative method of cataract treatment is the only one.
WHEN IS THE TIME FOR OPERATIVE TREATMENT?
When vision begins to diminish and interferes with the patient in the profession and in everyday life. People aged 45-50, who work actively, feel a lot earlier vision problems than those aged 70-80, with less visual effort. It is not right to wait for the curtain to ripen fully – that is, the patient can only distinguish between light and light, because it makes modern surgical techniques more difficult and the risks are higher.
Modern surgical treatment of cataracts consists in the removal of the lens by means of ultrasonic waves (phacoemulsification) and the implantation of an artificial intraocular lens.
