Medical Conditions and Treatment:
Cataract – Cataract surgery comprises of removing the opaque lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens. It is positioned in the same place as the natural one and becomes a permanent part of the eye.
Diabetic Retinopathy – It usually requires treatment when it reaches an advanced stage and mostly offered if symptoms are caused by diabetic maculopathy. It is corrected with laser or surgery.
Squint – Surgery to correct a squint is suggested if any other treatment isn’t found suitable. The surgery involves moving the muscles that control eye movement so that the eyes line up better.
Glaucoma – It can be treated with medications or a laser surgery. The aim of the treatment is to prevent loss of vision, as the vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible.
