The Mulamoottil family, which runs the hospital, has a long tradition in eye care that began with late Mulamoottil Mathen Mathai (1855-1934), an eye physician. Inspired by the legacy of his great grandfather, Dr. Ashley Thomas Jacob set up the modern eye care centre - the Mulamoottil Eye Hospital at Kozhencherry, Kerala, India in 2003 with various Ophthalmologic departments. He is supported by a team of eminent doctors.

Cataract Treatment
What is cataract?

Any clouding or opacity of the lens of the eye is called cataract. Once affected, cataract will result in gradual decline of eye sight. Cataract can effectively be cured through surgery. Though conventional cataract surgery and keyhole surgery are popular methods, micro-cataract surgery, an advanced technique, is more safe and effective.

Types of cataract

There are different types of cataract. Cataract by birth is called congenital cataract. It can also be caused by injuries to the eye, which is called traumatic cataract. Most common is age-related cataract in which the normal process of ageing causes the lens to harden and become cloudy. Diseases such as diabetes can also cause cataract or aggravate it.

Symptoms of cataract

The most common symptoms of cataract infection are:

* Blurred or distorted vision
* Gradual loss of colour vision
* Worsening of vision in dim/bright lights
* Glare at night resulting in coloured rings (haloes) around bright lights
* Double vision
* Frequent changes in eye sight

Treatment for cataract

Surgery is the only effective treatment method for cataract. There are three types of cataract surgery:

* Conventional surgery with sutures (incision size of 10 mm)
* Keyhole cataract Surgery or SICS (incision size of 5-6 mm)
* Micro-cataract Surgery (incision size of 0.7 mm to 2.00 mm)
