Cataract is a common condition that occurs due to the clouding of the natural lens inside your eye. This is usually due to aging (getting old!). When the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, light that enters the eye will be scattered, thus the images of objects become blur.   

A cataract can be the reason sharp images become blurred, bright colours become dull and glare/haloes at night. Vision with cataracts has been described as seeing life through a "dirty window".

Types of Cataract

Cataract and Corneal Diagnostic Equipm​ent

  Rexxam SPM 700 Corneal Specular Microscope
  Topcon Wavefront Analyser

​The Topcon Wave-Front Analyzer combines 5 functions of eye evaluation providing a comprehensive diagnosis of many ocular conditions. The wavefront analyzer is an excellent diagnostic tool to detect corneal aberrations (due to corneal disease/previous LASIK surgery/ previous corneal trauma) which will cause glare/haloes/distortion of images with the latest cataract surgery intraocular lenses (the multifocal intraocular lenses which can help give clear distant and near vision)​.


The best way to treat cataract is with surgery that removes the old, clouded lens and replaces it with a new, artificial lens to restore the vision. For elderly patients, this often significantly improves the quality of life and prevents accidents/falls.

Small Incision Sutureless Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgery 

The surgery can be performed within the clinic using a special machine which emits high frequency ultrasound waves is used to dissolve the cataract. The dissolved cataract is removed and a folded artificial lens is inserted through the same incision to replace the lens and vision is restored.
