Knowing the details about a laser eye surgery procedure can help you understand what cataract surgery entails.
The lens of your eye can become cloudy due to cataracts, affecting your eyesight. Cataract surgery is used to treat the affected eye by implanting an artificial lens. An eye doctor, also known as an ophthalmologist, usually performs the surgery. The cataract procedure can be traditionally done using an ultrasound probe or by using laser-assisted technology.
The cataract procedure is mainly performed to treat blurry vision as a result of cataracts. However, in most cases, waiting for some time before undergoing surgery will not cause any harm to your eye. When considering laser eye surgery, it helps to ask yourself the following questions:
If you find that the answer is ‘yes’ to two or more questions, it is time to consult an eye doctor.
Your doctor may ask you to do the following to help you get ready for the procedure:
Your doctor will discuss your needs and lifestyle and suggest the most suitable lens to help improve your vision. The intraocular lens (IOL) may be made of silicone, plastic or acrylic.
It usually takes around an hour to perform cataract surgery. The doctor will put eye drops to dilate your pupil and give you local anesthesia. They will remove the clouded lens and implant a clear, artificial lens.
Although your vision may be blurry and you may feel mild discomfort for a few days after the surgery, your eye will heal over time, and your eyesight will improve. You may have to visit your doctor 1-2 days after your surgery for a follow-up, and after a month for a check-up.
