Our eyes have an elastic transparent lens which is responsible for focusing of the image. With age this lens loses both its transparency and its elasticity, and this leads to development of cataract.
Development of Cataract is painless and a very gradual process. The slow and subtle changes (see image) may initially be tolerable but eventually the natural lens needs a replacement
Phacoemulsification cataract surgery with Intra-Ocular Lens Implant is the most accepted and successful treatment for Cataracts worldwide. The Cataract is reduced to fluid and removed from the eye through a tiny opening and through the same a foldable artificial lens is implanted into the eye.
