Cataract Surgery In Thiruvananthapuram

A cataract is defined as a clouding of the eye’s natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. It usually occurs gradually and painlessly. It can occur in anyone at any age, but it is most common in older adults. In Thiruvananthapuram, the prevalence is about 8.5 percent in those aged 60 years and older, and about 17 percent in those aged 80 years and older. There are about 1.3 million people with cataracts in Thiruvananthapuram, out of a population of over 16 million.

Usually, the treatment for this condition requires consultation with an ophthalmologist. During the initial consultation, the doctor will take a thorough medical history and conduct a comprehensive eye examination.

This will usually include a visual acuity test, in which the patient reads from an eye chart. The doctor may also use a device called a slit lamp to examine the structures of the eye. Based on this information, the doctor will determine whether or not cataract surgery is necessary.
