NEW DELHI, SEPTEBNER 09 : New Delhi: Chief Minister of Telangana, K Chandrashekhar Rao underwent a cataract surgery in Centre for Sight, New Delhi.

"At the age of 46 I was starting to see the appearance of rainbow halos and starbursts around bright nighttime lights, problems reading small print, focusing issues with my eyes, and image recognition issues. I had been exposed to bright high powered 20 watt scattered sodium LASER light a decade earlier in very high altitude astronomy." ― Steven Magee

Speaking about the same, Dr. Mahipal Sachdev, shared "The operation was a success and respected CM is doing fine on his first post-operative visit . He will visit us again tomorrow for post-operative care before going back to Hyderabad and can resume his work from next day onwards".


"Over the years, cataract surgery
has evolved from a vision
"restorative" surgery to
a "refractive" surgery- aiming
to provide enhanced visual outcomes
and reduce or eliminate the patients'
dependence on glasses. The traditional
Phacoemulsification stitchless cataract
surgery is a manual technique where in
cuts were made onto cornea using a hand
held blade. The femtosecond laser aims
to convert this manual, multi-step,
multi- tool procedure to one with laser
created, computer controlled precision.
The critical high resolution eye image
mapping and measurements that are used
to plan & perform the surgery to exact
specifications are not attainable with
traditional surgery. In Femtosecond,
certain aspects of cataract surgery
are automatically programmed
and monitored by the computer."
