Hospitalization For Cataract Surgery?
I want to ask my mother to get cataracts said the doctor must be hospitalized, because when she checked her eyes did not want to be opened because she was afraid, should I be hospitalized for cataract surgery?
Hello, Ms. Dizajo Thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Cataract is a condition where there is turbidity in the lens that can be caused by the process of degeneration / aging, or also because of other conditions such as diabetes mellitus. Cataracts will make vision become unclear and blurry. So to fix it, it needs cleaning on the lens if possible or if it cannot be cleaned again, then the only thing that can be done is to replace the original lens with a clear artificial lens that is implanted in the eyeball.
Generally, if without complications, eye surgery can be done without the need for hospitalization or hospitalization. However, if there are expected complications, patients are usually advised to be hospitalized for observation both before surgery and some time after surgery. More monitoring or postoperative observation is needed as a precaution against postoperative complications that may occur. However, more clearly you can consult with a doctor who treats your mother for reasons of hospitalization for cataract surgery. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
