What is cataract? How? What can I eat after operation?

Abstract: patients who have just completed cataract surgery should choose liquid or semi liquid food, fresh vegetables and fruits. Especially the elderly. The gastrointestinal peristalsis of the elderly slows down, which is easy to cause constipation. Therefore, it is necessary to eat digestible food and crude fiber food after operation to prevent excessive force during defecation, resulting in local wound bleeding and wound cracking of the eyes., How is cataract formed? The lens in the normal eye is transparent tissue. Once the lens is cloudy, it is called cataract. There are many factors causing cataract, such as malnutrition, intraocular diseases (such as retinal detachment, intraocular tumors), intraocular inflammation (such as membranous inflammation), senile cataract and so on, among which the most common is senile cataract. Blurred vision, decreased vision, double shadows in vision, rainbow circles when looking at lights, etc. can all belong to the symptoms of cataract., How to treat cataract? After suffering from cataract, many old people hope that eye drops or medicine can eliminate cataract. Various “magic advertisements” on the market have increased this psychology. At present, there is no effective “specific drug” for radical cure of cataract in the world. The so-called magical “specific drug” can only alleviate cataract.

Phacoemulsification microsurgery combined with intraocular lens implantation and femtosecond laser cataract surgery system have been mature for a long time, making cataract surgery enter a new era of knife free, minimally invasive and accurate, making the post cataract surgery effect better, the visual effect clearer and comfortable, and maximizing the quality of life of the elderly., Pay attention to diet after cataract surgery. 1.

cataract formed

the lens in the normal eye is transparent tissue. Once the lens is cloudy, it is called cataract. There are many factors causing cataract, such as malnutrition, intraocular diseases (such as retinal detachment, intraocular tumors), intraocular inflammation (such as membranous inflammation), senile cataract and so on, among which the most common is senile cataract. Blurred vision, decreased vision, double shadows in vision, rainbow circles when looking at lights, etc. can all belong to the symptoms of cataract.

how to treat cataract

many old people hope that eye drops or medicine can eliminate cataract after suffering from cataract. All kinds of “magic advertisements” on the market have increased this psychology. At present, there is no effective “specific drug” for radical cure of cataract in the world. The so-called magical “specific drug” can only alleviate the cataract. Only surgery is recognized as the safest, fastest and effective treatment.

with the development of medicine, cataract surgery has been very mature and almost no risk. Phacoemulsification microsurgery combined with intraocular lens implantation and femtosecond laser cataract surgery system have been mature for a long time, which has brought cataract surgery into a new era of knife free, minimally invasive and accurate, making the post cataract surgery effect better, the visual effect clearer and comfortable, and maximizing the quality of life of the elderly.

diet after cataract surgery pay attention to

1. Food is mainly easy to digest.

patients who have just completed cataract surgery should choose liquid or semi liquid food, fresh vegetables and fruits. Especially the elderly. The gastrointestinal peristalsis of the elderly slows down, which is easy to cause constipation. Therefore, it is necessary to eat digestible food and crude fiber food after operation to prevent excessive force during defecation, resulting in bleeding and cracking of local wounds in the eyes.

2. Avoid eating fried food, dairy products rich in lactose and high salt food

fried food will accelerate oxidation reaction and make people prone to cataract, such as artificial fat, margarine, animal fat, etc; Galactose will interfere with the utilization of vitamin B2 in dairy products, deposit it on the lens of the eyes of the elderly, denature the protein, reduce the transparency of the lens, and easily induce or aggravate cataract; People who eat a lot of salt are also prone to increase the risk of cataract.

3. Do not smoke or drink

avoid smoking and alcohol after cataract surgery. Alcohol does great harm to vision. Not only wine can produce humidity, but also phlegm and fire, aggravating eye lens opacity and blurred vision. Moreover, it is best not to eat spicy food after cataract surgery, such as ginger, garlic, onion, pepper and other irritant food, which will affect the wound healing of patients’ eyes.
