Cataract is caused by the clouding of the natural lens of the eye and usually develops as a result of old age, but may occur in infants and young children too. This results in blurred vision, glare, and sensitivity to bright lights. As the disease progresses, it leads to painless, progressive decrease in vision which can also result in a poor quality of life, interfering with day-to-day activities like driving and reading.
A healthy lifestyle helps prevent cataract, but in case if it happens, it is managed by spectacles. However, as the disease progresses, or if the central vision deteriorates, the only option for its management is a surgery. Cataract surgery in Delhi entails sucking out the natural lens after emulsifying it inside the eye by a process known as phacoemulsification. After this, a customized, artificial intraocular lens (called IOL) is placed in its position which restores natural and normal vision.
Who Is At a Risk of Cataract?
- People whose age is more than 60 years
- People with prolonged use of steroids

How Do I Know if I Need a Cataract Surgery?
This is where cataract surgeons at Eye7 come into the picture. After a thorough and comprehensive eye evaluation, our doctors will discuss with you the diagnosis of cataract and your best corrected visual acuity (your vision with glasses). They will also help you judge for yourself, with trial lenses, if you are comfortable with this vision with glasses in your day to day life or not.
In case, if you are not comfortable, in the absence of any eye disease that may affect your vision, the surgeon will discuss with you the possibility of cataract surgery in Delhi, and its available techniques.
