Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness worldwide, affecting approximately 18 million people. They are particularly prevalent among diabetic patients, with clinical studies indicating that up to 20% of all cataract surgeries are performed on individuals with diabetes.


Dr. Ravi Dorairaj, Regional Head Clinical Services, Dr Agarwal's Eye Hospital explained, "Cataracts occur when the eye's natural lens becomes clouded, leading to diminished vision. It is crucial for individuals, especially those in their 50s, to have regular eye check-ups as aging can cause the protein in the eye lens to break down, resulting in blurry or foggy vision, difficulty identifying colors, and poor night vision. While age-related cataracts are most common, other risk factors include ultraviolet ray exposure, dehydration, unhealthy diet, smoking, eye injuries, diabetes, and certain medical treatments like radiation therapy."


Discussing treatment and prevention, Dr. Ravi Dorairaj said that, "Cataract surgery is a safe and effective treatment that significantly improves quality of life. Preventative measures include maintaining a healthy diet and active lifestyle, quitting smoking and alcohol, and wearing sunglasses during peak sunlight hours to protect against harmful UV radiation."


Dr Agarwal's Eye Hospital encourages all eligible individuals to take advantage of this opportunity for a free cataract consultation, emphasizing the importance of early detection and treatment for maintaining good vision and overall health.
