Cataract Evaluation And Surgery
Cataract Evaluation And Surgery INR 0 INR 0 Eyes are one of the most important organs in the human body and vision is one of the most wonderful gifts. But often many people neglect the importance of eye care only to regret later on in life. Maintaining good vision and taking care of eyes is a relatively simple task. Today, I would like to educate all my readers regarding the most common eye problems. What is Cataract? Everyone must have heard about cataract and also must be having lot of queries for the same. Cataract / Motibindu / Motiyo etc., same thing but different name. Cataract is clouding / opacification of the natural lens that is present in our eyes causing hazy vision and decrease in vision. Natural lens that is present in our eyes since birth is transparent, clear like water and hence light can pass thru’ it and fall on retina to give us clear vision. Due to various reasons and most common is ageing, the transparency of the natural lens starts decreasing and it starts becoming more and more opaque. This non transparent lens blocks the light rays and thus causes decrease in vision. This is cataract. What are the reasons for cataract development? Ageing is one of the most common causes for cataract. Any person above the age of 50 years can develop cataract. In some people it can occur before and in some it can occur pretty late in the old age. Other reasons are: eye trauma, eye infection, congenital (since birth), diabetes, excessive smoking, side effects of certain medications, side effect of certain systemic illness etc. What are symptoms of cataract? Increasing glare from strong sunlight or bright lights at night Colored haloes around light sources such as car headlight causing difficulty in night driving Colors may appear faded or washed out Blurring of vision, haziness Difficult to read small prints Decrease of vision How is cataract treated? Surgery is the only treatment. Cataract needs to be removed when it interferes with daily activities and normal lifestyle. Surgery involves removal of cataractous lens and its replacement with an artificial/synthetic clear intraocular lens. What will happen if cataract is not operated? If cataract is not operated, it keeps on increasing. It becomes fully opaque and results into total loss of vision in that eye. It can cause glaucoma with resultant damage to the optic nerve and the retina causing irreversible vision loss. By not getting operated for cataract, a completely treatable vision problem is converted into irreversible and permanent visual loss. How effective is cataract surgery? Eye Essentials Cataract removal is one of the most common operations performed worldwide. It is also one of the safest and most effective surgeries. In about 95% cases, people who have undergone cataract operation, have better vision after the surgery. How is cataract removed? In olden days, entire cataract was removed without lens implantation (Intracapsular technique), which is not done nowadays. Then came the Extracapsular technique giving larger incision / wound (8-10mm) on the eye with hard lens implantation. Wound is then sutured with 5-8 stitches The Extracapsular technique is now modified to Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS): Cataract is removed thru’ a tunnel incision (5-7mm) and hard lens implanted. Wound is self-sealing requiring no stitches or sometime 1 or 2 stitches. Most recent technique and most widely practiced is Phacoemulsification. In this method, 2-3mm corneal incision is made, thru’ which cataract is emulsified (broken into small pieces) and aspirated using phaco probe. Foldable lens is then inserted thru’ the same incision. No stitches are required. What are advantages of Phacoemulsification? • Sutureless surgery • Faster recovery • Less trauma to the eyes • Less astigmatism – better vision • Discharged within few hours after the surgery. How long, I have to stay in the hospital? Most cataract operations are day care surgeries. Patients are discharged within couple of hours after the surgery. What precautions do I need to take after the operation? • Avoid rubbing or touching of the eyes • Glasses during the day time and eye shield at night time to be used • Do not bend or lift heavy weights • No head bath for at least 7 days/ bathe from neck downwards • Avoid strenuous exercise for 1 month • Avoid eye makeup for 2 months • Follow doctors’ instructions When will my vision be normal again? Initial few days vision will be hazy which gradually becomes normal within 10-15 days. Once complete healing occurs, prescription for the new glasses will be given. What are the complications of cataract surgery? Cataract surgery has a very high success rate of over 95%. In spite of the best care and precautions, there is possibility of minor/major complications in few cases: • Infection Eye Essentials • Loss of Corneal clarity • Loss of vision • Retinal detachment • Vitreous loss • Nucleus drop/ IOL drop • Hemorrhage. After the surgery, can I get cataract again? Cataract does not occur again after the surgery. In majority of the patients, PCO (chari) can develop after 6 months or later which can be permanently treated using Yag laser as an OPD procedure. True 1485581009
Glaucoma Evaluation
Glaucoma Evaluation INR 0 INR 0 Glaucoma: The silent thief of sight 1.What is Glaucoma? Glaucoma is a disease that causes progressive visual field loss (the extent of the surrounding that one can see) loss due to damage to optic nerve for which increase in eye pressure is a strong risk factor. It is a silent blinding disorder, as the loss of vision may remain undetected by the patient till the disease has reached an advanced stage. 2.What are the symptoms of glaucoma? (When should I see a doctor?) Most people who have glaucoma don't have any symptoms until significant damage has occurred so it is wise to see a doctor for regular eye examinations and get regular intra ocular pressure measurement and visual fields evaluation. However, some patients may have symptoms like:- • Sudden vision loss/blurred vision. • Sudden onset of excruciating eye pain, headache, nausea, associated with coloured halos around the light. • Thus, glaucoma may be a medical emergency, which if not treated in time would cause permanent damage to your eyes. 3.Who can get glaucoma? You are at increased risk if you are:- Over the age of 60 Glaucoma is much more common among older people. Family history of glaucoma Siblings of glaucoma patients have 10 times the risk to develop glaucoma as compared to the normal population and must be called for check up once glaucoma is diagnosed in the family. Steroid users It is most commonly noticed with steroid eye drops taken for allergic conjunctivitis but can occur with use of steroid contained in inhalers (taken by patients who suffer from asthma), skin ointments and any oral medications. Thus, steroids should be used cautiously and only on advise of a doctor and the patients who are using any form of steroid therapy must consult an eye specialist. Patient having systemic diseases like Diabetes , Hypertension, Thyroid disorder. Trauma to the eye. High myopia (or frequent changes of glasses). Patients with cataract can develop glaucoma due to thick lens or when the cataract becomes too advanced. 4.How do I know if I have glaucoma? Everyone above the age of 40 should get routine eye pressure checked. If you are suspected to have glaucoma; 1. Determination of eye pressure at least 3 to 4 times a year 2. Retinal (optic nerve head) evaluation at every visit. Eye Essentials 3. Visual field tests once a year is mandatory. 4. Other tests that may be required include Gonioscopy (to view the drainage system of the eye), central corneal thickness measurement, imaging of the optic nerve and retinal nerve fiber layer by using new technology (HRT, GDx or OCT). 5.What is tonometry and how is it done? Tonometry is a method to measure the pressure inside the eye. It can be done by contact or non-contact method. Applanation tonometry is a contact method to measure your eye pressure. Noncontact tonometry is an alternative using a puff of air. 1. Anesthetic eye drops will be put into your eyes prior to the procedure so that you don’t have difficulties during the procedure 2. You need to keep your chin and forehead on the support of the slit lamp. 3. A fluorescent dye will be put into your eyes and you will be asked to blink your eyes, and then asked to open your eyes wide open and fix on a target. 4. The prism attached on the slit lamp will be moved till it barely touches your eye and the measurement will be taken 5. This is a painless and accurate method to measure the eye pressure. 6.How often should I have an eye examination? If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, it is important to visit your doctor at regular intervals (3 to 12 monthly follow up) to monitor your glaucoma and make sure that your prescribed treatment is effectively maintaining the target (safe) eye pressure. The duration of further visits may be tailored by your treating eye doctor depending on the IOP control and the progression of visual field defects. Once the disease is well under control and there is no sign of progression an yearly follow up may suffice. More severe the disease, more frequent are the follow up visits required. If you have increased eye pressure but no damage to the optic nerve, you do not have glaucoma but you are at an increased risk and should get annual eye checkup which would include an eye pressure measurement and a visual field testing. 7.What are the treatment options for glaucoma? It is important to understand that glaucoma cannot be cured. Whatever damage has occurred to the optic nerve cannot be reversed. The treatment is aimed at controlling the intraocular pressure, so that whatever vision or visual field is left can be preserved. Medication/ laser/surgery can slow or prevent further vision loss. The appropriate treatment however depends upon the type of glaucoma among other factors. Early detection, adequate treatment and compliance of the patients to the medications is vital in stopping the progression of the disease. 8.If I have glaucoma, will I become blind? If you have been diagnosed to have glaucoma, very good treatment options are available. Regular treatment and follow up can help you to preserve your vision for your life time, without any fear of going blind. 9.Tips for living with glaucoma? It is important for you to get yourself regularly screened for glaucoma. a. Stringent follow up You should be regular with your appointments with your eye doctor. Frequent appointments and visual field chartings may be troublesome, but they are extremely important for maintaining your vision. b. Manage your medications Eye drops are prescribed as the first modality of treatment. You should plan out an exact schedule for taking your drops and schedule your doses Eye Essentials around your normal routine. Drugs don't work for patients who don’t take them. Use the prescribed medications at the right time of the day, if you are having any side effects, see your doctor immediately for change of medications or reduction of the dosage. Do tell your doctor if you are suffering from any other medical illness like diabetes, hypertension, asthma, thyroid, heart disease, depression etc your medications need to be modified accordingly. c. The right way to put your eye drops 1. Gently lower your lower eyelid with your index finger. 2. Squeeze one drop out of the bottle. Do not touch the bottle to your eye. 3. In case, a 2nd drop needs to be instilled, wait for 5 mins before putting the 2nd drop. 4. After putting the drops, wipe away the medications that might have trickled over the eyelids. Press your inferior nasal corner of your eyelid tightly with your index finger so that the drug stays there for some more time. 5. Store your drops in a cool dry place, unless instructed otherwise. 6. If you are having any side effects or any cost constrains , feel free to talk to your doctor. What should I do if I miss 1 dose of my eyedrops? Take the dose as soon as you remember it, even if the next dose is due shortly. Angle closure glaucoma’s are treated with laser. It may also be performed for open angle glaucoma’s. Lasers are usually done as an outpatient procedure. 5. Lifestyle modification Regular exercises, cutting down on alcohol, smoking and caffeine, controlling your blood pressure, keeping your blood sugar well under control can help you cope up with glaucoma. 6. Screening If you have a glaucoma, there are high chances that your kids too may be affected in the future. Hence, screening at the right age is of utmost importance. We cannot cure glaucoma, but can definitely find a better way to live with it. How common is Glaucoma? Glaucoma is the leading cause for irreversible blindness in India with about 15 million people affected. An estimated 2 lakh people go blind every year due to glaucoma. How to put eye drops? It is important to keep the eye drops stored in a clean cool dry shelf or the refrigerator. Wash your hands before opening the bottle and putting eye drops. Use the index finger to gently pull down on the lower lid and instil one drop in the space formed behind the lid. Do not touch the nozzle of the bottle with the eye or your hand. Close your eye for a few moments. Close the bottle cap quickly after instilling the drops. If using more than one drop at least keep a five minute interval between the two drops. True 1485581144
Squint/ Strabismus.
Squint/ Strabismus. INR 0 INR 0 Squint/ Strabismus. Eyes are one of the most important organs in the human body and vision is one of the most wonderful gifts. But often many people neglect the importance of eye care and don’t pay proper attention towards eye care, only to regret later on in life. To compound the problem, there are various myths circulating around, since ages, regarding eye diseases and eye care which have become the so called “truth” for the common man. As an ophthalmologist (eye care specialist), it is our duty to rectify those misconceptions and bring out the actual facts for all to know. • “Squint should not be operated” • “Squint is a sign of good luck” • “Squint is a sign of bad luck” All these are misconceptions. We, routinely get young patients wanting squint correction as they want to get married. It is commonly perceived as a cosmetic problem which can be surgically corrected. On the contrary it also has various functional problems that cannot be rectified as it is too late. Squint is misalignment of the two eyes, wherein both eyes are not looking in the same direction. It is not related to any curse or good luck. It can be present from birth i.e. congenital or can be acquired later on in life. It can be constant i.e. present throughout the day or can be intermittent i.e. present for few hours a day. The exact cause of squint is not known. There are 6 muscles around each eye that controls the movements of the eyes. The muscles of one eye works in co-ordination with its counterpart in the other eye to maintain normal alignment. Break in these co-ordination results in squint. Sometimes uncorrected refractive error causes deviation of the eyes from their normal position. Eye muscle paralysis can result in squint. Poor vision can also lead to squint. Hence it is mandatory to have a thorough eye checkup in all the cases of squint. Not only it is a cosmetic problem for the patient but also can cause vision problems. In children, it can cause lazy eye disease (amblyopia), loss of depth perception i.e. loss of 3- dimensional vision. In addition to this, in adults it can cause double vision i.e. diplopia. Squint is diagnosed by an Ophthalmologist trained in this field by performing various eye tests. After confirming its presence, its type and its nature, treatment is given by an ophthalmologist who is specialized in squint management. The aim of Squint treatment is 1. To preserve/ restore vision 2. Straighten the eyes 3. Restore 3- dimensional vision. Glasses, Patching and Surgery are the treatment options available. It should be treated as early as possible, any time after 6 months of age depending on the onset of squint. Nearly 40% of the squint can be corrected by spectacles or eye exercises. However, a large majority require an operation. Squint operations are very safe and should be done as early as possible. Generally, if the eyes are not aligned for more than 6 months, in a child, it causes irreversible Eye Essentials damage to the 3- dimensional vision. Squint surgery don’t cause decrease in vision. Squint is not only a cosmetic problem but it is a functional problem also which requires proper management. Hence it should be treated as early as possible True 1485581260
Lasik Eye Surgery
Lasik Eye Surgery INR 0 INR 0 LASIK, which stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a popular surgery used to correct vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. All laser vision correction surgeries work by reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, so that light traveling through it is properly focused onto the retina located in the back of the eye. LASIK is one of a number of different surgical techniques used to reshape the cornea. What Are the Advantages of LASIK Eye Surgery? LASIK has many benefits, including: It works! It corrects vision. Around 96% of patients will have their desired vision after LASIK. An enhancement can further increase this number. LASIK is associated with very little pain due to the numbing drops that are used. Vision is corrected nearly immediately or by the day after LASIK. No bandages or stitches are required after LASIK. Adjustments can be made years after LASIK to further correct vision if vision changes while you age. After having LASIK, most patients have a dramatic reduction in eyeglass or contact lens dependence and many patients no longer need them at all. What Are the Disadvantages of LASIK Eye Surgery? Despite the pluses, there are some disadvantages to LASIK Eye Surgery: LASIK is technically complex. Rare problems may occur when the doctor creates the flap, which can permanently affect vision. This is one reason to choose a surgeon who is very experienced at performing these surgeries. LASIK can rarely cause a loss of "best" vision. Your best vision is the highest degree of vision that you achieved while wearing your contacts or eyeglasses. What Are the Potential Side Effects of LASIK Eye Surgery? Some patients experience discomfort in the first 24 to 48 hours after LASIK Eye Surgery. Other side effects, although rare, may include: Glare Seeing halos around images Difficulty driving at night Fluctuating vision Dry eyes How Should I Prepare for LASIK Eye Surgery? Before LASIK Eye Surgery, you will meet with a coordinator or eye surgeon who will discuss what to expect during and after the procedure. During this session, your medical history will be evaluated and your eyes will be fully examined. Likely initial tests include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, corneal mapping, air pressure, and pupil dilation. Once you have gone through the initial evaluation, you will meet the surgeon, who will answer any questions you may have. Afterwards, you can schedule an appointment for the procedure. If you wear rigid gas permeable contact lenses, you should not wear them for at least three weeks before your evaluation. Other types of contact lenses shouldn't be worn for at least three days prior to the evaluation. Be sure to bring your eyeglasses to the surgeon so your prescription can be reviewed. On the day of your surgery, eat a light meal before going to the doctor and take all of your prescribed medications. Do not wear eye makeup or have any bulky accessories in your hair that will interfere with positioning your head under the laser. If you are not feeling well that morning, call the doctor's office to determine whether the procedure needs to be postponed. What Happens During LASIK Eye Surgery? During LASIK Eye Surgery, an instrument called a microkeratome or femtosecond laser is used to create a thin flap in the cornea. The cornea flap is then painlessly peeled back and the underlying corneal tissue is reshaped using another laser. After the cornea is reshaped so that it can properly focus light onto the retina, the cornea flap is put back in place and the surgery is complete. LASIK is performed while the patient is under local anesthesia in the form of eye drops and usually takes about 10 minutes to complete. Patients may also request mild sedation. Plan to have someone drive you home after surgery. What Should I Expect After LASIK Eye Surgery? Your eyes will temporarily be dry even though they do not feel that way. Your doctor will give you prescription eye drops to prevent infection and inflammation and eyedrops to keep your eyes moist. These drops may cause a momentary slight burn or blurring of your vision when you use them. Do not use any eye drops not approved by your eye doctor. Healing after LASIK Eye Surgery usually occurs very rapidly. Vision may be blurry and hazy for the first day, but most patients notice improved vision within a few days of surgery. Specific follow-up after the surgery varies from one surgeon to another. You will revisit the doctor for an evaluation 24 to 48 hours after LASIK Eye Surgery, as well as at regular intervals within the first six months. True 1485581338
