Regaining Your Vision: Understanding Glaucoma & Cataract Surgeries

Regaining Your Vision: Understanding Glaucoma & Cataract Surgeries at Trust Charitos Hospital

Are you experiencing blurry vision, seeing halos around lights, or noticing a gradual vision loss? These could be signs of cataracts or glaucoma, two common eye conditions affecting millions worldwide. While distinct, they can sometimes co-exist, impacting your vision significantly. At Trust Charitos Hospital, we understand the importance of clear vision and offer advanced treatment options for both cataracts and glaucoma. This blog post aims to clarify these conditions and highlight the surgical solutions available at our facility.

Understanding Cataracts:

  • What are they? Cataracts are a clouding of the natural lens within your eye, similar to a foggy camera lens. This clouding affects the light passing through, causing blurred vision, glare, and difficulty seeing colours.
  • Treatment: Fortunately, cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure. The cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL), restoring clear vision.

Understanding Glaucoma:

  • What is it? Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, the crucial link between your eye and brain. This damage is often caused by increased pressure within the eye (intraocular pressure).
  • Treatment: Early detection and treatment are vital for managing glaucoma and preventing vision loss. Depending on the type and severity, treatment options may include eye drops, laser procedures, or minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS).

In some cases, individuals experience both cataracts and glaucoma. At Trust Charitos Hospital, our skilled ophthalmologists can combine cataract surgery with advanced glaucoma procedures like MIGS, offering:
  • 1. Improved efficiency: Addressing both conditions in one surgery saves time and reduces recovery periods.
