Today, we are going to talk about a very exciting and new topic; laser cataract surgery. There are a lot of myths about laser cataract surgery and we are going to bust them all.
We are going to talk about myths of laser cataract surgery.
Laser cataract surgery is safer the manual cataract surgery. Even doctors believe that but reports came out of a study that showed that it was not the case. Laser surgery is at best as good as manual cataract surgery but not safer. That is one myth, which has been busted not by me but by published and reviewed journal studies of Europe.
That is not true. Medical insurance has determined that if someone wants to upgrade to laser cataract surgery, they will have to pay extra.
That is not true. Lasers do certain steps pf the procedure, mainly opening in the lens and sometimes cutting the lens. In fact, some steps are done better by hand.
Cataract wounds made by lasers are better than those made by diamond knives. The reverse is true, diamond knives can make better and more precise wounds than the current generation of lasers used in cataract surgery.
If we do laser cataract surgery, we would not have to wear glasses after the procedure. That is not true. Only ‘presbyopic implants in eye’, can free you from the bondage of contact lens and glasses after cataract surgery and not laser.
After cataract surgery, drops will not be needed. Again, that does not hold the light of day. You will need drops. Drop less surgeries is a different concept. After the laser cataract surgery, you might need more drops.
Laser cataract surgery might be less painful and faster by cataract surgery done by hand. I feel sorry but, we have to bust that one too. When we do laser cataract surgery, we have to apply something that would hold your eye while the laser moves around making the openings and cutting the lens up. That is held by negative suction pressure, which is painful and we have to give you medication for that. For that, we have to add another step, we have to do the part of the surgery done with laser first and then in the operative room, we have to do the rest of the surgery by hand. It increases the time that you would be in the operating theater.

In modern advanced cataract surgery patients are given the option for sedation. Many choose not to be sedated. They want to get up and get back to activities of daily living. Some want to avoid the side effects of the drugs. Few anxious people want deeper sedation. An anesthetist titrates the depth of sedation to each persons requirements.
Most people who have topical cataract surgery recover in a few hours. The rest may take a day or two.
Topical, local and rarely general anesthesia may be given. Most cataract surgeries are performed with topical drops with monitored anesthesia care.
The natural lens is opened. The contents are dissolved. The liquid remnants are pulled out. A new synthetic implant is inserted in its place.
It will continue to grow. Its color changes from white to yellow. Finally it can become red or black. Cataracts are the leading cause of preventable blindness in the world.
Modern day cataract surgery in skilled hands is pain free.
As the cloudy, opaque area in your lens grows and expands over time, more light will be blocked from reaching your retina. The opacity in your lens scatters entering light, causing foggy and dim vision. You may also experience:
Night vision problems, including halos and glare around lights & faded, less vibrant colors.
Increased light sensitivity & eye strain.
Double vision in one eye & more frequent changes in eyewear prescriptions (e.g. increased myopia)
Over time, your symptoms of cataracts may start to interfere with daily activities, both recreational and work-related. For example, you might have trouble driving at night because headlights and streetlights seem too bright. Reading, computer work, and other types of near-vision activities may also become difficult.
