A common cause of vision loss is clouding of the eye lens. This disease is called a cataract and it is one of the most widespread nowadays.
Often a person does not notice the occurrence of a cataract, and the problem is unexpectedly discovered only during a preventive examination by an ophthalmologist. At the initial stage, it is not possible to identify this disease on your own. The first signs of cataracts may be:
- double vision;
- visual impairment;
- the appearance of a "fog" or "veil".
If any of these symptoms occur, it is important to immediately get qualified ophthalmological help. The earlier this eye disease is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat. With cataracts, it is important to choose an experienced ophthalmologist who can help manage this problem.
With cataracts, irreversible dystrophic processes develop in the lens. Accordingly, this disease cannot go away on its own and must be treated. It is important to realise that any medications, even the most innovative ones, cannot solve the problem. They can only help to slow down the pathological processes that develop in the sick eye. Therefore, every patient needs to understand how serious the situation is. You cannot get rid of cataracts without a surgical procedure.
Indications to surgery
This disease may be age-related or congenital. The risk zone starts at the age of 65, as this is the time when irreversible changes in the lens are most likely to occur. Laser cataract surgery is indicated in the following cases:
- partial or complete displacement of the lens,
- dehydration and dystrophy of the lens,
- acute episode of glaucoma,
- abnormal shape deformations.
Contraindications to surgery
Treating cataracts with a laser is not always an option. There are some contraindications to such operations, the main ones are:
- blood diseases,
- cancer and inflammatory processes of the eyes,
- abnormalities of the pupil of the eye,
- degenerative diseases of the nervous system,
- neurological and cardiovascular diseases,
- pregnancy, lactation.
