A cataract is one of the lead causes of blindness in society today.

So, what is a cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye. Our eyes have a natural lens that is as clear as a clean glass.

Cataracts develop slowly so sometimes a person may not notice a change in his or her vision but as time goes by, this person will be prone to experience blurry vision depending on the location of the cataract.

Cataracts are more common among people who are 50 years and above.

What then are some of the symptoms of a cataract?

  1. Poor night vision
  2. Vision that is cloudy, blurry, foggy or filmy
  3. Sensitivity to bright sunlight, lamps or headlights
  4. Changes in the way you see color

Can anything be done to restore sight?

The answer is YES!!!!

Surgery can be done to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens. And at Dr. Arunga’s Eye Hospital, we are able to provide surgery that is safe and painless. This computerized surgery leaves the patient with no wound and he or she is discharged immediately after surgery. The other benefit of this surgery is that the healing process is faster compared to the manual cataract surgery.

So as a patient, you do not have to worry about all the pain because we have the best team to take great care of our patients at all times.
