Cataract surgery is a very common, out-patient surgery where the natural lens of the eye is replaced with a clear intraocular lens implant. This procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes. Even though this is a same day procedure, you want to make sure you have a highly-qualified cataract surgeon working on your eyes.
