Cataracts are a common condition in which your eye’s lens gets cloudy keeping the light out causing it to lose some eyesight. With cataract surgery, the specialist removes your eye’s lens replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL’s).

• Laser cataract surgery: The surgeon makes a small incision on the cornea, then uses a laser to break up the cataract. Then the IOL is implanted.
• Phacoemulsification: The surgeon makes a small incision on the cornea, and an ultrasound probe delivers energy into the eye that breaks the cataract in fragments, and then aspirated out of the eye. Then the IOL is implanted.
