Cataract is loss of transparency of the crystalline lens. Normal eye has a crystalline lens made up of protein which is transparent like a glass. It is made up of proteins. Crystalline lens together with cornea helps in focusing the light on the retina.
Glaucoma is a disease of the eye, where the optic nerve is totally damaged due to increase in eye pressure. The normal eye pressure is between 10-20mm of mercury, any pressure above 20 then increases the risk of optic nerve damaged leading to Glaucoma.
Pterygium is a condition where there is a fleshy growth arising from conjunctiva growing on to cornea. This is usually seen in elderly who are exposed to lot of sunlight exposure. In the early stages it causes a cosmetic disfigurement and in later stage may affect the vision.
Laser vision correction
Laser vision correction is done in people between the age of 18-35 yrs for correction of spectacle power less than -8 to -10 dyoptre, it is done by using laser energy to reshape the cornea using EXCIMER laser (LASIK / PRK).
PHAKIC IOLs is done to correct spectacle power between -10 to -20 dyoptre, it can also be done in eyes with power less than -10 dyoptre if the eye Is not suitable for laser vision correction. Here an artificial lens of appropriate power is implanted within the eye in front of natural crystalline lens
Prelex (Presbyopic lens exchange)
Prelex is done for people over the age of 40yrs to get rid of both distance and near vision glasses, here natural crystalline lens is replaced with an artificial multifocal lens.
Secondary IOL is a procedure in which after initial cataract surgery, an artificial lens(IOL) was not implanted in the eye. This results in poor vision and a large residual spectacle number. Inability to put the lens in the first sitting could be due to various reasons like absence of support due to broken posterior capsule or weak zonules.
IOL exchange is a procedure, wherein one artificial lens implanted earlier is removed and a new artifical lens is inserted. Intraocular lens implanted during cataract surgery normally lasts life time in most of the people. However there are rare occasions where in intraocular lens has to be removed and another intraocular lens needs to be placed.
Red eye is one of the most common problems of the eye. The reason for red eye includes multiple diseases, like; Infection (Conjunctivitis), which could be bacterial or viral. Other causes of red eye includes allergy of the eye, (common in children), Uveitis (auto-immune disorder). Redness can be due to bleed in the conjunctiva due to injury or foreign body in the eye. Treatment depends on the cause of redness. Consult Dr. Shetty for your treatment.
