Aldose reductase inhibitors, which are believed to inhibit the conversion of glucose to sorbitol, have shown promising results in preventing sugar cataracts in animals. Senile cataract is a vision-impairing disease characterized by gradual, progressive thickening of the lens.

It is the leading cause of blindness in the world today. This is unfortunate, considering that the visual morbidity brought about by age-related cataract is reversible. As such, early detection, close monitoring, and timely surgical.

The definitive management for senile cataract is lens extraction. Over the years, various surgical techniques have evolved from the ancient method of couching to the present-day technique of phacoemulsification.

Phacoemulsification offers the advantage of a smaller incision size at the time of cataract surgery. A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye which leads to a decrease in vision.

Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry or double vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night.

This may result in trouble driving, reading, or recognizing faces. Poor vision caused by cataracts may also Causes: Aging, trauma, radiation exposure, following.

The great majority, however, are “senile” cataracts, which are apparently a part of the aging process of the. The overall rates of senile cataract in general, and of its 3 main types (ie, nuclear, cortical, posterior subcapsular), rapidly increased with age; for the oldest age group (≥75 y), nuclear, cortical, and posterior subcapsular cataracts were found in %, %, and % of the study population, respectively.

Cataract treatment consists of both non-surgical methods of improving symptoms of vision deterioration as well as surgical removal of the cataract.   You and your eye doctor should develop a cataract treatment plan based on the type and severity of your cataract.

For this reason, it is not surprising that cataracts are a leading cause of blindness worldwide affecting over 20 million inwith the incidence projected to increase [2].

The cataract is one of surgery’s oldest topics, and there are numerous references to cataract surgery in the literature.

The evolution of cataract surgery is summarized in Table As there is no proven preventive or pharmacologic treatment for cataracts, the standard method of treatment is surgical removal of the opacified lens and implantation of an artificial IOL. Cataract surgery, also called lens replacement surgery, is the removal of the natural lens of the eye (also called "crystalline lens") that has developed an opacification, which is referred to as a cataract, and its replacement with an intraocular lic changes of the crystalline lens fibers over time lead to the development of the cataract, causing impairment or loss of : Of all the eye diseases, cataracts are the most amenable to treatment with conventional medical methods.

The standard treatment is to remove the lens using a technique called phacoemulsification. A surgeon uses an ultrasonic beam to break up the hardened lens, and then vacuums up the pieces from the eye with a suction device.

For thousands of years, cataract surgery continues to be the "pearl" of ophthalmic surgery. It is explained by the fact that cataract removal always leads to an increase in visual acuity of patients.
