Types of cataracts

Slide 2:

Did you know that there are different types of cataracts? Cataract surgery is the most performed surgical procedure in the world. However, most people do not realise that there are different types of cataracts. Ophthalmologists classify cataracts in several ways. The most basic method of classification is according to the location of the actual opacity. Types of cataracts by location There are three basic areas in the eye that an opacity can form: the centre portion of the natural lens, the outer part of the lens and the back surface of the lens. Nuclear sclerotic cataract - The most common type of cataract. The centre portion of the natural lens of the eye – the nucleus – becomes yellow and hardens. ‘Sclerosis’ refers to the hardening of the lens nucleus. Deterioration of vision is usually gradual.

Slide 3:

Cortical cataract - A less common form of cataract that appears as a cloudy opacity in the cortex, the outer part of the lens. The cataract resembles spokes that point inwards on the centre of the lens, causing light rays to hit the retina in a scattered fashion. With this type of cataract, the most frequent symptom is experiencing problems with glare.

Slide 4:

Posterior subcapsular cataract - These cataracts form as opacities on the back surface of the lens. They cause light sensitivity, problems with reading vision and glare. They are more prevalent among diabetic patients and those who have taken corticosteroids over a period of time. The treatment for all three types of cataract is cataract surgery. Cataract surgery Today, cataract surgery is considered to be a straightforward procedure. Providing the eye is otherwise healthy, 99% of patients will have a good result. Cataract surgery involves removing the opacified natural lens and replacing it with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). The natural lens is broken up by a process called phacoemulsification , then the pieces are removed via a tiny incision in the side of the cornea (the surface of the eye). The IOL is then inserted through the incision and unfurls into the lens capsule. In most instances, where the technology is available, the incisions and cataract opening and division are performed by surgical laser.
