About Eye Surgery

If a person is suffering from the beginning stages of some specific eye ailments, then surgery becomes the last option. 

An eye specialist will use several other methods for treatment such as prescription of “different kinds of eyeglasses, eye drops, eye gel, and contact lenses of various kinds”. An eye specialist considers the option of “Eye surgery”, for an individual only when his/her eye ailment has reached an advanced rate of progression and can cause vision loss in the near future. 

Eye Conditions Which Require Eye Surgery

Cataract

A cataract is essentially a condition in which the lens of the eyes gets clouded creating diminished vision. Cataracts occur because protein builds up in the lens of the eye and it is common among old-aged adults, however, it could occur in young adults and children as well. Cataracts cause the eyes to look foggy, clouded, and milky in appearance. We use 100% Blade-free Femto Laser.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is generally associated with a buildup of pressure inside the eye (Intraocular Pressure{IOP}) because the fluid inside the eye aqueous humor stops draining from the eye normally. The fluid in the eye drains out from the trabecular meshwork. In Glaucoma, this drainage gets blocked leading to pressure buildup. The fluid pressure buildup can be attributed to the intrinsic deterioration of the optic nerve as well as genetic factors. We at Eye Mantra provide the best glaucoma services with all the advanced diagnoses in Glaucoma.

Refractive Errors

Refractive errors are the most common type of eye disease. Myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (distorted vision at all distances), and presbyopia (loss of ability to focus up close, inability to read phone book letters, need to hold newspaper farther away to see clearly) are all refractive errors that can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or in some other surgery.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration, often known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is an age-related eye illness that causes damage to sharp and central vision. To see objects properly and do basic daily tasks like reading and driving, central vision is required. The macula, the center region of the retina that permits the eye to see fine details, is affected by AMD. There are two types of AMD: wet and dry.

Diabetic Retinopathy 

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common diabetic condition. It is the major cause of adult blindness. It causes progressive damage to the blood vessels of the retina and the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that is required for good vision.

Strabismus

Strabismus is a condition in which the two eyes are imbalanced. Strabismus causes the eyes to cross inward (esotropia) or turn outward (exotropia) (exotropia). A lack of coordination between the eyes causes strabismus. As a result, the eyes look in different directions and do not focus on a single point at the same time. When both eyes fail to focus on the same image, depth perception is reduced or absent, and the brain may learn to ignore the input from one eye, resulting in irreversible vision loss in that eye (one type of amblyopia).

At Eye Mantra Eye Centre in New Delhi, our team of eye specialists judges the unique eye conditions of every patient and prescribes a treatment plan that will render excellent and high-graded visual results.

Different Kinds Of Eye Surgical Procedures

Cataract Surgery

The medical condition is known as “Cataract”, which causes the natural lens of the eye to become cloudy. And if an individual is suffering from an advanced stage of “Cataract”, then he can also lose his vision completely in the near future. The cloudy lens is replaced with an artificial lens, under this medical procedure. 

There are several kinds of risks attached to cataract surgery which include “Inflammation, Infection, Bleeding, Swelling, Dislocation of the artificial lens, Retinal detachment, Glaucoma, Secondary cataract, Loss of vision”. 

Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery 

When an individual is suffering from a severe case of “presbyopia”, then a “Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery”, becomes the necessary option for him. If an individual’s eyes slowly lose the ability to focus on nearby objects, then this form of a medical condition is known as “Presbyopia”.

This condition is most commonly detected in people who are over 40 years old. If an individual is suffering from the initial stages of this condition, then corrective lenses are a viable option of treatment but if the conditions continue to worsen, then surgery is the only option left.

The surgical procedure is performed by removal of the natural lens, via small incisions and when the natural lens has been removed properly, it is replaced with an artificial lens. The artificial lens serves the purpose of providing an enhanced vision. Individuals who are suffering from “severe hyperopia”, are also treated with the help of this surgical procedure.

LASIK Surgery

If an individual is suffering from one of the various kinds of refractive errors in the eye, then “Lasik surgery” is the most suitable option for him. This surgical procedure is performed on an individual’s eye when the retina of his eye cannot focus on objects properly. The objects can be situated either at a far distance or a nearby distance.

Types of LASIK eye surgeries:

  • Topography guided LASIK- This form of surgical procedure entails the complete usage of mapping technologies for precise and accurate treatment of the individual’s eye.
  • Wavefront-guided LASIK–  In this surgical procedure, comprehensively detailed wavefront generated measurements are used to assess the path of light traveling through the eye, and how the light falls upon the retina.
  • All-laser LASIK:- This form of surgical procedure removes the use of any kind of surgical blade and instead uses a “Femtosecond Laser” to enhance the surgical process.

Trabeculectomy

Individuals who are suffering from “Glaucoma”, undergo this surgical form of surgical procedure. The purpose of Trabeculectomy is to lower the pressure inside the eye and this surgical procedure has a success rate of 60%-80%. There are different kinds of trabeculoplasty surgery, which are “Traditional trabeculoplasty, Argon laser trabeculoplasty, Micropulse diode laser trabeculoplasty (MDLT), Selective laser trabeculoplasty.

Keratoplasty Surgeries

This form of surgery is also known as” Corneal transplantation”. Keratoplasty surgery is performed on an individual’s eye, either when his cornea’s curvature has become too flat or when there is the presence of a tumor. The several conditions which require “Keratoplasty Surgery” include “Corneal scarring, eye infections, presence of an external tumor, corneal ulceration or erosion, corneal thinning or perforation”.

Since the occurrence of various kinds of eye ailments is not uncommon in different individuals. An eye specialist must be consulted by the individual to assess the condition of his eye ailment. The eye specialist will decide the required course of treatment and the need for any kind of surgical procedure.

Eye Surgery Procedure

Eye surgeons use distinct types of procedures for the treatment of different kinds of eye ailments. If an individual is suffering from “refractive errors” of the eye, then “LASIK surgery”, becomes the most viable option for him. If an individual is suffering from an advanced stage of “Cataract”, then a “Cataract eye surgery” can restore his vision to the best possible state. 


Our eyes are largely built-up of a huge network of nerves and so before the initiation of any surgical procedure of the eye, “Anesthesia” becomes a very important tool. In a large number of cases, “Local anesthesia” is most commonly used. But in the case of small and quick surgical procedures, “Topical anesthesia” is used. 


Several precautions are taken by the eye surgeon before the beginning of eye surgery to make sure that there is no spread of any kind of infection. These precautions can involve the usage of sterile gowns and gloves and maybe even the use of “antiseptics”.
