Cataract: Cataract is clouding of normal human lens, in this condition the vision decreases gradually. Cataract is treated by Phacoemulsification -this surgery involves dissolving the cataract within the eye and implanting a foldable lens. Cataract is being treated with stitchless cataract surgery.
Glaucoma: A slow, painless disease which gradually destroys the optic nerve. Glaucoma can be easily prevented if timely detected by checking eye pressure and performing visual field analysis. Glaucoma is treated with eye drops, laser and surgery as required.
