Eyes are probably the most delicate organs in the human body. Eye surgery may be needed for a number of reasons for people of all ages. Degenerative conditions such as cataracts, congenital ones such as a lazy eye, squint, vision correction surgeries, or trauma due to accidents all may require a person to undergo eye surgery.
According to the ailment and condition of the affected eye doctors may prescribe eye surgery. Here are some common eye ailments and the surgeries required for them:
Cataract : The lenses (cataracts) in our eyes get cloudy with age. Surgery is needed to remove these cloudy lenses and replacing them with artificial lenses. This is a simple surgery that can be done under local anesthesia.
Corrective surgery for vision improvement: Issues such as short-sightedness (myopia), presbyopia (focusing difficulty that occurs with age), astigmatism (unevenly curved cornea), and long-sightedness (hyperopia) can be solved by refractive eye surgery using lasers.
Trauma : Trauma to the eye is operated upon to close the wound and repair damage to the eye. Sometimes multiple surgeries are needed to fix the damage to the eye.
Corneal transplant : The cornea is the dome shaped transparent part of the eye responsible to a large extent for the eye’s focusing power. Disease or injuries may damage the cornea at which point a doctor may suggest a corneal transplant. Also known as keratoplasty, this is is a surgical procedure to replace the cornea with healthy corneal tissue from a donor.
