know waterfall as that loss of transparency of a lens located inside the eye, called the lens.
The causes of cataracts usually respond to a process linked to age, but may also occur after prolonged contact with certain drugs or in the context of some general diseases such as diabetes treatment.
Treatment of cataracts
the only treatment to resolve the loss of vision caused by cataracts is surgery. To this day there are no medications to stop the evolution or regenerating lens transparency.
The entire practice of the surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis with topical anesthesia ( anesthetic drops). Dissolves cataract within the eye with the aid of a device called phacoemulsification. In our center we use smaller incisions than 2 mm ( microincisions ), which results in a faster visual recovery after surgery and a lower rate of complications.
A cataract is the clouding of a powerful lens that we have inside the eye ( the Crystal ). Remove and not replace it with a similar lens power would cause the eye to stay with a very high graduation. So long as the cataract is operated must implement a lens instead. There are different types lenses that correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia ( farsightedness ).
Like any surgery, is not without complications. However, cataract surgery is extremely tech and the incidence of complications is extremely low.
