  Cataract services  
 The diagnosis and treatment of cataracts is perhaps the most commonly performed function in eye care second only to refraction (power correction).
Cataract service at HMDEF covers a wide range – from simple extra-capsular cataract extraction (ECCE – 9 mm incision) to micro-incision phaco (MICS – 2.2 mm incision) and from rigid intraocular lenses (IOL) to multi-focal IOLs.
There are options to bring down your existing glass power to zero or nearly zero and correct any pre-existing astigmatism (cylinder power) and presbyopia (inability to see at near without glasses).
Most surgeries are done without even a single injection (topical anaesthesia).
