Cataract is the clouding of natural crystalline lens inside the eye, which leads to decreased vision. It is the most common cause of blindness in India and is conventionally treated with surgery. Apart from biological aging the process, opacification of the lens is hastened by diabetes, trauma, radiation, genetic predispositions and several other factors. The surgery aims at replacing the natural lens with artificial lens i.e. intraocular lens (IOL).
At Mahajan Eye Centre (MEC), we are proud to announce ourselves as the “walk-in walk-out” cataract surgery centre offering “no stitch (sutureless), no injection, no pain, no hassles” advanced cataract surgery. We perform cataract surgery with latest MICS (Micro-incision cataract surgery) phacoemulsification technology using AMO sovereign compact with whitestar/ ICE. The cutting edge technology along with unmatched expertise available at MEC helps us to deliver best results in cataract surgery. The surgery is done under topical anesthesia (using drops only) for most cases and deals with melting the lens through a very small incision (1.8-2.8mm) and removing it and replacing it with foldable lens. It has excellent results as well as postoperative comfort.

At MEC, we offer a wide spectrum of intraocular lens (IOLs) to be used during cataract surgery:
- Monofocal Foldable IOLs (Hydrophilic/ Hydrophobic)
- Monofocal Aspheric IOLs (Aberration Free): Helps take care of natural aberration present in cornea for better vision quality and sharpness especially useful in activities like night driving.
- Toric IOLs: For correcting Astigmatism (Pre-existing cylindrical power) of the eye
- Multifocal IOLs:These lenses are for those who want to see without glasses for both distance and near. These are specially designed lenses having zones for distance and near focus.
- Toric Multifocal IOLs
- Accommodating IOLs (Crystalens from Bausch and Lomb)

Once surgery for cataract has been done, it never occurs again. However, patients may have mild blurring of vision post- cataract surgery after variable interval due to thickening of the membrane on which IOL has been placed. This, almost universal, phenomenon is called Posterior Capsular Opacification (PCO) which is easily taken care of by laser capsulotomy which is performed using latest Nd-Yag Laser machine at MEC as a minor OPD procedure.
