Cataract Surgery and Dry Eye Syndrome


With cataracts affecting nearly 22 million Americans, it's not surprising that most of us know people who have had cataract surgery. We may even be contemplating cataract surgery for ourselves. Since cataracts are almost never a medical emergency, you should feel entirely comfortable taking the time to learn more about cataracts and explore all your options. 

What is a Cataract? 

A cataract is simply a spot on the lens of the eye that you cannot readily see through. These spots are made up of clumps of normal eye protein and generally form slowly over time. Although most cataracts are related to aging, it is also possible for cataracts to form as the result of surgery or other trauma to the eye. Steroid use and other health problems such as diabetes are also linked to cataracts. Congenital cataracts can form in babies or children, and radiation exposure can also result in cataracts. Still, for most people, cataracts are age-related and .

What is involved in Cataract surgery 

During cataract surgery, your own lens is removed and an artificial lens is replaced. The procedure is usually done under mild sedation and takes about an hour.  Most people see a remarkable improvement in their vision right after cataract surgery.  

Why do I have dry eyes after Cataract surgery?

In order to get the old lens out and the replacement lens in.  The doctor puts a tiny hole in your cornea to facilitate this process.  The hole does create an uneven surface on your cornea which creates friction when you blink.  This friction creates inflammation which shuts down your tear secretion glands, and thus dry eyes.

Testimonial from our customer

Cataract Induced Chronic Dry Eyes- Relief by TheraLife Eye
After cataract surgery in 2007.  I started having problems with dry eyes.  My doctor prescribed several different types of eye drops, but none were effective.  He then put plugs in my tear ducts, and they became infected and must be removed.  He then suggested that I have my tear ducts cauterized- I did not feel comfortable about this permanent procedure.
I then thought about going on the internet and checking what else is available for dry eyes.  Amazon had information on TheraLife Eye that I found the most interesting. I place an order.  Needless to say, I saw a marked improvement and now I am on a maintenance dose of one capsule at breakfast and one at dinner.  2 capsules per day.  I wouldn’t be without TheraLife Eye.
