What is cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside your eye. This lens, located behind the iris, works just like the lens of a camera-focusing light images on the retina, which sends images to the brain. The human lens can become so clouded it keeps light and images from reaching the retina. A cataract can be the reason sharp images become blurred, bright colors become dull, or seeing at night is more difficult. It may also be why the reading glasses orbifocals that used to help you read or do other simple tasks no longer seem to help. Vision with cataracts has been described as seeing life through old, cloudy film. But a cataract is not a “film’ over the eyes, and neither diet nor lasers will make it go away, nor can it be prevented. Eye injury, certain diseases, or even some medications can cause the clouding. The best way to treat cataract is with surgery that removes the old, clouded lens and replaces it with a new, artificial one to restore your vision and, in many ways, significantly improves your quality of life.

What can I expect following cataract surgery?

Most patients typically return home the very same day as cataract surgery. Eye drops may be prescribed to guard against infection and help your eye heal. For a few days, you may need to wear an eye patch to keep away irritants. Everyone heals differently, but most patients see well enough to return to most of their routine activities within a few days of recovery.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is the third leading cause of irreversible blindness. It is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Worldwide, about 70 million people have glaucoma and approximately half do not know they have it. Early on, there may be no symptoms. Optic Nerve and glaucoma Although damage to the optic nerve is permanent, early detection and treatment can help control the progression of this disease and may help to preserve vision.

Who are at risk of having Glaucoma?

Anyone can develop glaucoma. High eye pressure is the only modifiable risk factor for glaucoma, although several other factors also increase the likelihood of developing the disease:

  • Age: risk increases with age, especially after 45 years
  • Marked near-sightedness
  • Family history of glaucoma
  • Race: People of African and Asian decent are at higher risk
  • High blood pressure
  • On long term steroids.
What is diabetic retinopathy?

Diabetes affects the blood vessels of the body, in eye it causes changes in the blood vessels of retina that causes swelling and leak fluid, while in some other cases abnormal new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina.

How does diabetic retinopathy cause vision loss?

Blood vessels damaged from diabetic retinopathy can cause vision loss in two ways:

  • Fragile, abnormal blood vessels can develop and leak blood into the center of the eye, blurring vision. This is proliferative retinopathy and is the fourth and most advanced stage of the disease.
  • Fluid can leak into the center of the macula, the part of the eye where sharp, straight-ahead vision occurs. The fluid makes the macula Swell, blurring vision.

This condition is called macular edema. It can occur at any stage of diabetic retinopathy, although it is more likely to occur as the disease progresses. About half of the people with proliferative retinopathy also have macular edema

Who is at risk for diabetic retinopathy?

All people with diabetes – both type 1 and type 2- are at risk. That’s why everyone with type 2 diabetes should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. The longer someone has diabetes, the more likely he or she will get diabetic retinopathy which can be cause of serious vision impairement including blindness if not detected and treated timely.

What is Eye Donation?

Eye Donation means donating the eyes of a person after death for transplantation with the family consent. Cornea is the clear tissue covering the front of the eye. If the cornea becomes cloudy because of any disease, injury, infection or poor nutrition, vision is dramatically reduced or lost. Corneal blindness can be treated by replacing the damaged cornea by a healthy donated human cornea. The human Cornea can be procured through Eye Donation only.

  • Corneal blindness affects mainly children and young adults who have a long life ahead of them
  • Though we have trained, highly qualified surgeons and hospital facilities to do the transplant, we do not have enough eye tissues to do the surgery.
  • Approximately 11 lakh blind population of our country are waiting for corneal transplantation and approximately 25,000 new cases are being reported.
  • One eye donation can give sight to two corneal blind persons.
How and when can Eye donation be done?

Eyes should be donated within 6 – 8hrs of death. Anyone can be a donor, irrespective of age, sex, blood group or religion. Anyone with Cataract or spectacles can donate eyes. Persons suffering from hypertension, diabetes can also donate eyes. Total Enucleation takes 15-20 minutes. There is no disfigurement of the face of the donor. About 10cc blood of the donor is also collected for testing. Eyes can be donated even if the deceased had not formally pledged his/her eyes during his/her lifetime. Eye Bank team will rush over to the donor’s home or another place where the body is available after death. This is a free service in public interest. After pledging please inform your family about your wish to donate eyes, so that they can fulfil your wish.
