Bladeless Cataract

What is a Cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. The word "cataract" comes from the Latin word "cataracta," which means "waterfall." Imagine trying to see through a cascading waterfall or a foggy window. That's what it can be like for people with cataracts.

Cataracts develop at varying rates for each person, but typically worsen gradually over time. It can take months or even years for a cataract to significantly affect your vision.

Causes of Cataracts:

  • Age-Related Cataract: This is the most common type, caused by the natural aging process of the lens fibers.
  • Secondary Cataract: This develops due to another eye condition like chronic inflammation or glaucoma.
  • Traumatic Cataract: Caused by a direct injury to the eye, including blunt force trauma, electrical shock, or radiation treatment.
  • Metabolic Cataract: Certain medical conditions like diabetes or galactosemia can contribute to cataracts.
  • Steroid-Induced Cataract: Long-term use of oral steroids or steroid eye drops can increase cataract risk

Cataract Treatment Options at Surya Eye Hospital

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure, with a 95% success rate in improving vision. Surya Eye Hospital, with centers in Bandra, Mulund, and Airoli, offers advanced cataract surgery techniques:

Cataract Treatment at Surya Eye

Phacoemulsification – A Micro Incision Cataract Surgery

  • Phacoemulsification: This minimally invasive, stitch-less surgery is the gold standard for cataract removal. High-frequency ultrasound waves break up the cataract, which is then suctioned out. A foldable intraocular lens (IOL) is inserted to replace the cloudy lens.


  • It is Stitchless. Hence healing is very fast.
  • It is done under Topical anaesthesia (by putting drops.) So no need to patch the eye except in special circumstances
  • Vision correction for far & near is possible
  • Patient can get back to work in the shortest possible time

Intraocular Lens (IOL) Options:

IOL - Intraocular Lens implant

During cataract surgery, the clouded natural lens is removed. An IOL implant acts as an artificial lens, restoring focusing power. Surya Eye Hospital offers various IOL options to meet your individual needs:

  • Monofocal IOL: Provides clear vision at either distance or near range, but glasses may still be needed for other distances.
  • Multifocal IOL: Corrects vision for both near and far distances, potentially reducing dependence on glasses.
  • EDOF (Extended Depth of Field) IOL: Offers a wider range of clear vision compared to monofocal IOLs, suitable for activities requiring intermediate focus like using a computer.
  • Trifocal IOL: Provides excellent vision for near, far, and intermediate distances.
  • Toric IOL: Corrects astigmatism along with cataracts, reducing dependence on glasses for those with this corneal condition.
  • Accommodating IOL: Mimics the natural focusing ability of the eye, potentially reducing the need for glasses after surgery

Protective IOL filters

IOLs include filters to protect the eye’s retina from exposure to UV and other potentially damaging light radiation. The eye doctor selects the filters that will provide appropriate protection for the patient’s specific needs.

Other important cataract lens replacement considerations

  • In some cases, after healing completely from the cataract lens surgery, some people may need further correction to achieve the best vision possible. Their ophthalmologist may recommend additional surgery to exchange an IOL for another type, implant an additional IOL, or make limbal relaxing incisions in the cornea. Other laser refractive surgery may be recommended in some cases.
  • People who have had refractive surgery such as LASIK need to be carefully evaluated before getting IOLs because the ability to calculate the correct IOL prescription may be affected by the previous refractive surgery.

Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS):

Surya Eye Hospital offers advanced ReLACS, using a femtosecond laser for increased precision and accuracy in several steps of cataract surgery:

  • Corneal Incision Creation
  • Anterior Capsulotomy (Lens Capsule Opening)
  • Lens Fragmentation (Breaking Up the Cataract)

For patients seeking the most advanced cataract surgery technology, Surya Eye Hospital offers Refractive Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS). This innovative approach utilizes a femtosecond laser for unmatched precision in several critical steps of the procedure.  The laser creates the corneal incisions, performs the anterior capsulotomy (opening the lens capsule), and even fragments the cataract itself. This enhanced accuracy can potentially reduce risks associated with manual techniques and lead to sharper postoperative vision.

Benefits of ReLACS:

  • Improved precision and predictability of surgical steps
  • Potentially reduced risk of complications
  • Enhanced potential for better visual outcomes
