    Eighty eyes of the senile cataract were chosen randomly. The uncomplicated phacoemulsification was performed. OCT was examined preoperatively and 1 week after the surgery. Cataract surgery is the only treatment available to successfully address cataracts and prevent them from causing further vision loss. The procedure removes the cataract along with the eye’s natural lens, which is replaced with an intraocular lens implant (IOL).

Background: The Health Technology Assessment Unit at the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) has prepared a report on the safety, efficacy and effectiveness of foldable monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) (silicone and acrylic) over polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) IOLs for the treatment of uncomplicated age-related cataract.

In this article the author describes the methods. Surgery Overview. A cataract is a painless, cloudy area in the lens of the eye. The lens is enclosed in a lining called the lens capsule. Cataract surgery separates the cataract from the lens capsule.

In most cases, the lens will be replaced with an intraocular lens implant (IOL). If an IOL cannot be used, contact lenses or eyeglasses must be worn to compensate for the lack of a natural lens.

A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry or double vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night.
