Can cataracts be dragged to death?

In life, although cataracts are often mentioned, many patients, especially the elderly, do not pay enough attention to cataracts. Clinically, some elderly people refuse to undergo surgery unless it is absolutely necessary, and they have a natural resistance to surgery, especially the "knife" on the eyes. In fact, this kind of worry is completely unnecessary. 1. Untreated cataracts can lead to blindness Cataracts are a common eye disease in the elderly, mainly due to blurred vision caused by the opacity of the lens. The incidence of cataracts is high, and the blindness rate is also high. If you find the following symptoms, please go to the hospital in time: ① Distortion of things in sight; ② Change of color of vision; ③ Blurred vision and decreased vision; ④ A halo around the light when looking at the light; Falling visual image fades; ⑥ One or both eyes see an object as two. ‍2. Drugs cannot cure cataracts Because of drug advertisements and fear of surgery, many people mistakenly believe that cataracts can be cured by eye drops. In fact, a cataract is when the lens has become cloudy. There is currently no drug to treat cataracts, and the only effective way to treat cataracts is surgery. The current mainstream cataract surgery is phacoemulsification combined with intraocular lens implantation. At the same time, it is recommended that drugs should be used with caution in early cataracts, because each drug has side effects, and improper use can cause damage to the eyes and body. 3. Don't wait for "familiar" to treat it. "You can still see it, so there is no need to take a knife. You can treat it when you can't see it." This is the stereotype of many cataract patients. In fact, if the treatment of cataract patients is delayed, it will not only reduce the chance of cure, but also induce other eye diseases. Generally speaking, as long as the vision loss affects normal work and life, surgery can be performed. 4. There is no recurrence after surgery. Cataract surgery is to remove the cloudy lens. The lens cannot be regenerated. It is often necessary to put an intraocular lens. After the lens is removed, there will be no recurrence. If vision loss occurs after surgery, you should go to the hospital for examination in time to make a definite diagnosis. There are many reasons for vision loss, depending on whether there are other eye diseases, corneal lesions, fundus lesions, etc., which will affect the postoperative vision.
