MODERN CATARACT SURGERY
Cataract surgery consists of several steps:
- The eye is numbed with anaesthetic eye drops
- Microincisions are made in the cornea
- The cataract is removed
- An intraocular lens is implanted
- The incision is sealed
Most of our patients at The Binetter Eye Centre only require anaesthetic drops for their surgery. These patients do not have to wear a patch over their eye after surgery.
Others may still require an anaesthetic injection for their procedure and will require a patch over their eye until the following morning. The anaesthetist after examining you will decide what type of anaesthesia you will need.
People are often intimidated by the idea of consulting with an eye surgeon, we aim to make the experience and easy and pleasant as possible.
