A cataract is an opacity (or cloudiness) in the lens of the eye. This cloudiness develops inside the lens and restricts light passing through the eye and reaching the retina. When this occurs, vision is affected. An opacity can be quite minor or it can become so marked that it prevents adequate vision. Cataract removal is one of the most common eye operations performed in the UK today. It is also one of the safest and most effective, and is successful in over 98% of cases.

What are the sign & symptoms of cataracts


What are the symptoms of Cataracts?

Common symptoms of cataracts are

Common symptoms of cataracts are:

Cloudy or blurry vision

Light sensitivity, from car headlights that seem too bright at night; glare from lamps or very bright sunlight; or the appearance of a halo around lights

Poor or reduced night vision

Double or multiple vision (this symptom often goes away as the cataract grows)

“Second sight” where near vision becomes possible without glasses again because of the cataract developing in the lens. This state is usually temporary, and followed by progressive loss of distance vision

A need for frequent changes of glasses or contact lenses

Cataract surgery & treatment


Only cataracts causing symptoms need treatment. Modern cataract surgery is effective in restoring vision to most patients. Cataract surgery is performed as a day case procedure. It is very quick, usually taking 10-15 minutes. Though you will need approximately 2-3 hours to allow time for preparation and recovery. Surgery involves removing the cloudy lens from inside the eye through a small incision, and replacing it with a new artificial lens, called the IntraOcular Lens (IOL) or implant, made from  acrylic materials. There is now a range of implants to choose from and your surgeon will advise the implant best suited for your individual needs. Generally, patients undergoing cataract surgery will have a single focus implant that provides clear vision at one focal point, usually distance. This means reading glasses will still be required after cataract surgery. To reduce the need for reading glasses after cataract surgery, premium implants are available. This implant provides a clear image for both distance and near, which means a significantly reduced dependency on glasses for your daily visual needs. In fact experience has shown that up to 85% of patients manage without glasses at all. There are also implants that correct for astigmatism, called toric IOL’s. For 20-30% of patients who undergo cataract surgery and have significant astigmatism, a single focus lens will mean glasses will still be required for distance. A toric implant will give a far greater chance of clear vision for distance without the need for glasses. However, reading glasses will still be required unless premium toric lens are used which adds the near element of focusing. There are also wavefront implants available, which are particularly suitable for patients who require cataract surgery but have had previous refractive surgery (such as laser eye surgery) to improve their low contrast/low light vision.
