Experience of curing over 18,000 cataract patients in Bangalore and India

A cataract is the clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye and is mostly caused due to ageing of the eye, family history, diabetes, injuries, medications, unprotected exposure to sunlight, etc.

A thorough eye examination to understand the exact nature of the cataract

A lot of patients experiencing blurred vision, glare, light sensitivity, poor night vision, fading colours have been treated at Shekar Eye Hospital. By performing a thorough eye examination using international technologies, the exact problem area is identified by the cataract specialists at Shekar Eye Hospital. This examination also rules out any other conditions that may be causing blurred vision. If you are suffering from any of the cataract symptoms, please visit our specialists immediately, who will tell you about the right treatment for you and how much visual improvement is likely after the surgery. Our cataract doctor will conduct visual acuity test, pupil dilation, glare testing, vision testing, fundus examination, biometry, and tonometry test to learn about the structure and health of your eye.

Cataract treatment offered at Shekar Eye Hospital

In most cases,surgery is the only option for the successful treatment of cataract. Cataract surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia or topical anaesthesia drops, and the cloudy lens is removed from the eye. Typically, the focusing power of the natural lens is restored by replacing it with permanent intraocular lens implant. Our ophthalmologists perform this delicate surgery using an advanced operating microscope, miniature instruments and other modern technology.

Phacoemulsification Surgery for Cataract

Also called small-incision cataract surgery or "phaco" surgery. The ophthalmologist makes a small incision on the side of the cornea. Then, a tiny probe is inserted into the eye. The probe uses safe ultrasound waves that soften and break up the cloudy center of the lens so it can be removed by suction. The back half of the lens capsule is delicately retained to act as support to the intraocular lens (IOL).

Modern foldable lens implants can fit through incisions this small, and sutures are not required.

The cataract surgeries performed at Shekar Eye Hospital are suture-less, painless, and require no bandage. Complete post-op care and treatment is done by the ophthalmologists.
