Cataract is the clouding of the lens in the eye that effects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Risk factors are diseases like diabetes, personal behavior such as smoking, alcohol use, and environmental factors like prolonged exposure to ultraviolet sunlight.

According to the 3rd National Blindness Survey done in 2002, the top three causes of visual impairment are cataract, error of refraction, and glaucoma. Cataract is the number one cause of reversible blindness in the country.

What are the symptoms of cataract?

  1. Cloudy or blurry vision
  2. Colors seem faded
  3. Glare. Headlights, lamps, or sunlight may appear too bright. A halo may appear around lights.
  4. Poor night vision
  5. Double vision or multiple images in one eye
  6. Frequent prescription changes in your eyeglasses or contact lenses.

My mom was one of these Filipinos affected by cataract; she’s 73 years old and had undergone cataract operation with lens implant on both eyes a month ago. She was so fortunate to been under the care of an ophthalmologist, who is committed in providing the highest quality eye care to his patients.

Her ophthalmologist, is diplomate eye specialist Dr Noel J. Lacsamana. Aside from his comprehensive treatment he provides to his patients, Dr Noel J. Lacsamana is on the forefront of disseminating information about eye health through several radio programs.

Gud am,
My mother is 81 years old and she is suffering from cataract. She really wanted her clear sight to be back. She wanted to read her bible but because of her poor sight she opted to listen na lang to the sermon and during bible studies which she frequently attend. We are living in Noveleta, Cavite . Saan po kaya mas maganda na makapunta kami where we could see you personally para makita ninyo ang nanay ko. Doc I really prayed for a good and the best doctor and the Lord heard my prayer. Please give me an idea how much it will cost? Maramami pong salamat God bless you doc.

@mam sonia: I tried to sent you an email regarding your query but it seems the email address does not exist. Can you email me?Thanks po.

Cris Caras July 15, 2011 at 8:40 pm

gud day. Inquire ko lang po ang lolo ko kasi 83 years old na pero malakas pa ang pangangatawan, ang problema lang po nya talaga e yung mata nya. 1 mata na lng po ang nakakakita at malabo pa. Ask ko lang po kung kaya po ba masolve yun ng LASIK surgery at pwede po ba makahingi ng quote kung mga magkano. Saka pupunta lang po ba kami sa clinik at gagawin agad operation o check muna tapos babalik na lng for schedule. Taga cavite po kasi kami.

Salamat po.

lina r. vidal September 10, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Dear Dr. Lacsamana,

My daughter has an eye problem which she thinks stems up from constant use od computer. This the nature of her job. She is now 6 months pregnant and she can’t see well in the late afternoon and evening. Her vision is blurred on her right eye. The left eye is okay. The doctors cannot see anything wrong since both eyes are clear. The eye is red , not itchy but she feels there is film covering her right eye, she also sees black object. Is it possible that could be due to her pregnancy? This is her first and she is 35 years old. Is there a possibility that this could be pregnancy related ? Please reply and many thanks and more power to philanthropic activities. respectfully yours lina r vidal

Ella Vergara March 16, 2014 at 8:53 am

Hi Doc, we are planning to go to your clinic next week for consultation, I’ve been through multiple operations the first one is when i was 4 years old then the next one was last 2012. I am 15 years old and the last time we visited an ophthalmologist, I was informed by the doctor that they can do an operation but then theres no guarantee that I can get my left eye sight back it was affected by cataract. The last specialist who checked my eye informed me that there is a malpractices issues happened on the first operation. We are really confused on what to believe since we’ve been through different specialist. I hope you can help me to get cure on my eye problem. We are on the process of contacting your clinic and were looking forward. Thanks!
