This cloudiness develops inside the lens and restricts light passing through the eye and reaching the retina. When this occurs, vision is affected. An opacity can be quite minor or it can become so marked that it prevents adequate vision.

Cataract removal is one of the most common eye operations performed in New Zealand today. It is also one of the safest and most effective, and is successful in over 98% of cases.

Human eye has a clear natural lens. The lens is situated inside our eye, behind a soft tissue called iris. It can be easily seen through the central opening of the iris, called pupil. As we age, the natural lens loses its clarity, where the natural transparent lens fibers are replaced with opaque material due to oxidative stress. As a result, people with cataract will start to lose their eye sight, as if seeing through mist or clouds. If it is left untreated, it can cause blindness.

There are many causes of cataract, but they can be broadly divided into congenital and acquired. Some inborn error of metabolism or hereditary disorder can cause congenital cataract but these are not common. Acquired etiologies include aging, ultra violet radiation from excessive exposure to sun (e.g: labourers) or welding sparks (e.g: metal/steel workers). Others include smoking, obesity, diabetes mellitus, eye injury, eye inflammation, eye surgery, hypertension and excessive usage of steroid based medications.

Cataract doesn’t occur overnight, because it starts as an insignificant change in your eyesight that gradually evolves. The first symptoms of cataract is loss of distance visual acuity and loss of contrast sensitivity. It occurs gradually, and some older people may not realize it until the cataract has reached the advance stage. Depending on the type of cataract, the visual presentations differ.

As regular readers will know, I recently underwent cataract surgery. This was performed on my left eye and took place on the 4th March 2010. Two days have now passed, and I feel well enough to make a start on this article.

Recovery can sometimes involve problems, but for me the surgery seems to have been very successful. I do not want to jeopardise the work of the excellent surgical team though, and so I will complete this article over the coming week. That way I also can detail any problems, or the like, as I come across them.

Hopefully, I will be able to offer some reassurance to others who are facing this type of surgery. If all goes well, I will have the same procedure done on my right eye in around five weeks.
