Cataract Surgery Details
While no one likes surgery, this is the only option to deal with cataracts and provide you with the clear vision that you need. Before you have the surgery, you will have your various eye measurements to ensure that the surgeon will have the right intraocular lens to properly correct your natural lens which will be removed.
Cataract surgery is typically done in a single day and is an outpatient procedure. This means that you will be able to go home after the surgery is done, and there are a few things that you will need to keep in mind as your eyes heal. The surgeon will break up your clouded lens and remove it, then put in the replacement lens. This new lens should last the rest of your life without any further issues.
The procedure starts with numbing medication for your eyes. You will be awake for the procedure, and some people prefer to have some medication to help them relax for the procedure. After the numbing medication takes effect, the surgery itself will happen where your clouded lens is removed and a new, clear lens is inserted. Finally, the recovery can start and usually takes between 6 and 8 weeks for full healing of the incisions.
