Cataract

A cataract starts out first with little effect on our vision. In this condition our vision may get little blurred as if we are looking through a cloudy glass piece. Cataract, the most common cause of loss of vision in people over 45 years of age and is also said to be the principal cause of blindness worldwide.

In general, cataract is medically classified as, Subcapsular cataract found to develop on acquiring opacity at the back of the lens. The people with diabetes or patients going on with higher doses of steroid medications have a greater risk of having this condition. Nuclear cataract often occurs deep in the central zone or nucleus of the lens, the condition is usually associated with ageing. Cortical cataract is clearly identified by white, wedge-like opacities that start affecting the periphery of the lens and develop in a spoke-like fashion later.

Various factors have been found by researchers to contribute into the onset of cataract, like-UV radiation, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, smoking, prolong use of steroid medications, previous eye injury, hormonal therapy, long term high myopia and those having such family history.

Cataract surgery is most successful way for restoring vision. Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) implantation has been done to replace the natural opacity developed lens and provide power corrected vision. The infection during operative and post operative stage is to be avoided for best possible recovery.

Squint

A squint condition or strabismus refers to a misalignment of eyes. The condition arises due to an incorrect balance of the muscles that move the eye. The eye may turn in or converge, turn out or diverge or sometimes turn up or down, resulting into improper working of eyes.

Squint can occur at any age and around five percent children are having this condition. People with squints usually have poor vision in the affected eye. Sooner the treatment is started well the chances of positive results. The treatment includes operative procedure and exercises etc as advised by the doctor. Medically, squint is categorized into several types, Esotropias (convergent) squint, Exotropias (divergent) squint, Hypertropias and Hypotropias vertical squints in which one eye is higher (hypertropia) or lower (hypotropia) and Paralytic Squints.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steal sight without warning. In the early stages of the disease, there may be no symptoms. It is estimated that half of the people affected by glaucoma may not know they have it. Vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve. This nerve acts like an electric cable with over a million wires.

It is responsible for carrying images from the eye to the brain. It was once thought that high pressure within the eye, also known as intraocular pressure or IOP is the main cause of this optic nerve damage. Although IOP is clearly a risk factor, we now know that other factors must also be involved because even people with “normal” levels of pressure can experience vision loss from glaucoma.


CAN I HAVE GLAUCOMA?


Unfortunately glaucoma is a disease, which cannot be seen or felt by the patients in the early stages. It is usually spotted during the course of a routine eye check-up done by an Eye Surgeon when high IOP is suspected and a more detailed evaluation is done. The mistake that most people commonly make is getting only their glass number checked by an Optician ignoring the need for a detailed eye check up.

Sometimes the patient discovers it and come to the Doctor with complaints of a mild headache, fuzzy vision in morning or seeing rainbow colors around lights. All these are suggestive of raised IOP. It is always a good idea to get your eyes checked once a year routinely above the age of 40 years.

Neuro-ophthalmology

Neuro-ophthalmology focuses on conditions caused by brain or systemic abnormalities that result in visual disturbances. Rushabh Eye Hospital has a neuro-ophthalmology division that is specialised in the evaluation diagnosis and treatment of visual problems that affect the optic nerve, eye movement and the pupil’s reflexes. We identify and treat problems impacting either the brain’s interpretation of what the eyes see or the brain’s coordination of eye movements. Most commonly, patients come to us for help with loss of vision and double vision.

A variety of eye problems are associated with the onset of headaches. Squinting, straining, or pressure and swelling of the eye can all trigger pain in parts of the head. Common eye problems that can cause or contribute to headaches are described in more detail below.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the leading cause of blindness in adults. It is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina. In some people with Diabetic Retinopathy, blood vessels may swell and leak fluid. In other people, abnormal new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina. In diabetic retinopathy the small blood vessels of retina become weakened and develop small outpouchings called microaneurysms. These vessels also become more permeable that its proteins and other substances readily leak out through walls of the blood vessels. In the later stages, these blood vessels may get completely blocked. Due to the diseased vessels, the retina is deprived of adequate oxygen supply and this stimulates growth of new, abnormal vessels in the retina.
