Cataract removal is one of the most common surgical procedures in the United States and it is estimated that over 3.5 million operations are performed each year.

During the surgical procedure, the eye surgeon uses anesthetic eye drops to numb the eyes, as well as I.V. medication to relax the patient. Using a process called phacoemulsification; the surgeon breaks up the cataract and “vacuums” it from the eye pouch – a very safe and proven technique. The lens implant is then inserted. In most cases, a suture is not needed. The entire process takes 15 minutes.

The lens that is inserted is called the IOL or intraocular lens (IOL). If you are considering cataract surgery, it is important that you explore the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of intraocular lenses available. The principal goal of Cataract surgery is to improve the quality of vision. Today with modern technology, the goal has been extended to reduce the need for corrective lenses (glasses/contacts).
