How is cataract surgery performed?

Cataract surgery is prescribed by an ophthalmologist. It is performed if the cataract reduces quality of vision deteriorating personal or professional life, or if necessary for medical reasons, such as certain types of glaucoma. Surgery is performed under local anaesthesia. This involves administration of anaesthetic eye drops to the cornea and conjunctiva, leading to numbness of the eye. The clouded lens nucleus is removed from the eye by ultrasound disruption and removal of the particles under vacuum and controlled negative pressure. An artificial intraocular lens is implanted into the transparent lens capsule which remains in the eye.
