In cataract, the patient does experience much pain, hence they usually do not pay much attention to this condition. Even with the power of their spectacles constantly reducing, they ignore it, until it becomes a complete obstacle in their daily routine & lifestyle. Surgery is the only complete treatment for this disease.
According to Dr. Manoj Gupta, Senior Consultant, Sharp Sight Eye Hospitals, Srinagar “Previously one had to wait for the cataract to ripen for conducting surgery, but now with the advancement in technology, it is no longer required. Earlier surgery was done by making a large incision, now with only a small 2 mm. incision, state-of-the-art cataract surgery is an option. The recovery of a patient from this surgery is also very fast.”
