Treatment is surgical removal and placement of an intraocular lens. The most common cause of curable blindness in the world. Diagnosis is made by the detection of a decrease in visual acuity that cannot be corrected by refractive correction, and an eye exam that is otherwise normal apart from opacity in the crystalline lens. Treatment is with surgery involving an.

Cataracts make it difficult to read or drive a car, especially at night. Surgery to treat cataracts involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with a synthetic new one.
This procedure is safe and very effective. But University of California San Francisco (UCSF) researchers and colleagues are exploring another approach to treatment. Cataracts range in terms of severity, and the correct treatment depends on the degree of progression and type of cataracts you have.

Sometimes, surgery can be avoided with aggressive medical management using eye drops to reduce inflammation and elevated eye pressure, while allowing a small piece of cataract to dissolve on its own.

Procedure: The surgery itself, which usually takes less than 30 minutes, is generally done on an out-patient basis under local anesthesia that numbs the nerves in and around the eye. Treatment is indicated when visual function no longer meets the patient's needs and cataract surgery provides a reasonable likelihood of improvement.

Table 3 is a list of conditions that contraindicate surgery. 10,11 However, under special circumstances, cataract surgery may be necessary to improve visualization of the posterior segment for treatment of coexisting posterior segment disease, even if.
There is also concern that cataract surgery may accelerate progression of AMD to more advanced forms, namely neovascular age‐related macular degeneration or choroidal neovascularisation and geographic atrophy.
