Cataract Surgery & Its Types

Most cataracts form over time and affect the vision gradually. Age is a common factor in developing cataracts, while other underlying health conditions and genetics can contribute to the development of cataracts. As the condition progresses, the cloudy area starts to spread over the lens and cuts off the light and results in blurred vision. Cataract surgeries are minor outpatient procedures. It involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with an artificial lens to become part of the natural eye.

Cataracts types are:

  • Nuclear cataract, where the center of the lens is affected. In this case, it will start with nearsightedness and the lens will get cloudy with time.

  • Cortical cataracts start as white streaks to the outer edge of the lens and progress to the center.


  • A posterior subcapsular cataract is when a small opaque cloud is formed towards the back of the lens. This type of cataract usually progresses fast and affects vision at an early stage.

  • Congenital cataracts are cases where people are born with the condition or develop it early in childhood.

    About Cataract Surgery

    The stages of cataract can be graded as below:

    • Early cataract – Difficulty in changing from near to far sight along with blurring, cloudiness, and glaring lights.
    • Immature cataract – The proteins begin to collate in the center of the lens. Surgery is still not needed as it can be managed with special glasses and using the right light for certain activities.
    • Mature cataract – The opaqueness of the lens has increased and has spread to the edges of the eye. The eye itself appears milky or white. If the patient is unable to manage, then cataract surgery is recommended.
    • hypermature cataract – The lens is fully opaque and has hardened. Removing the lens is more difficult now though leaving it untreated can result in glaucoma.
    • Natural aging 
    • Genetic conditions
    • Medical conditions like diabetes.
    • Lifestyle habits like smoking and alcohol consumption.
    • Injury to the eye.
    • Usage of steroid-based medication for a long period.
    • Exposure to UV rays.

    The surgery procedures involve:

    • Making an incision to access the inside of the eye
    • Breaking down the cloudy lens and suctioning it out
    • Implanting the artificial lens, which is also called an intraocular lens

    Cataract Surgery Treatment

    Vision loss due to a cataract cannot be corrected using glasses or lens. Surgery is the only way to resolve the condition. Cataract operations are one of the safest and most effective procedures. Cataract surgery is performed to take out the cloudy lens and implant a new plastic lens in its place. It is an outpatient procedure and generally does not require hospitalization. Phacoemulsification is the preferred ophthalmology surgery treatment for cataract removal worldwide. In this procedure, the affected lens is emulsified using ultrasound energy and removed using suction. The new lens is then implanted inside. Using laser treatment for eyes reduces the time of the surgery and the chances of complications. However, laser surgery can increase the cataract surgery cost.

    Cataract surgeries can be done at any stage and need not be only in severe conditions. Patients can opt to have the surgery whenever they are comfortable. It is usually recommended when vision loss starts affecting daily activities.
