Motiyabind or ‘cataracts’ is a very common disease among people who have aged over 50 years. More than 60% of the population (above the age of 50) in India suffers from this disease. Basically in cataracts, the clouding begins inside the lens of the eyes. This clouding can be treated with the use of glasses, contact lenses, and sometimes surgery like LASIK is also performed.
Earlier it was a very hazardous disease but now with the rise of medical technology, its treatment is very easy. The permanent solution is having eye surgery where the lens of the eye is replaced with an artificial one usually called Intraocular Lens or IOL. This lens restores the vision and lets the patient perceive the world with eyes like new.
