Phaco Cataract Surgery

Normal Eye

Catract Affected
We Help in Phacoemulsification (Phaco) surgical method used to remove a cataract, which is a clouding of the eye's naturally clear lens. In the first stages of a cataract, people may notice only a slight cloudiness as it affects only a small part of the lens, the part of the eye that focuses light on the retina. As the cataract grows, it blocks more light and vision further decreases.
Phacoemulsification cataract surgery is a procedure in which an ultrasonic instrument is inserted and used to emulsify, or break up, the cataract and then vacuum away the damaged material.

An ultrasonic oscillating probe is inserted into the eye through a very small incision in the cornea. Stitches are not required to close this tiny entry, which means that there is less discomfort and quicker recovery of vision than with other surgical techniques. Small incisions also allow for more rapid rehabilitation of vision and possibly less dependence on glasses for good distance vision.

After removal of the cataract-damaged lens, an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted. Made from soft acrylic or medical-grade silicone, IOLs are folded so they can be implanted with a small injector, which uses the same incision through which the phaco probe was inserted at the beginning of the procedure. As the IOL is implanted, it unfolds and anchors itself behind the eye's pupil over the remaining clear capsule. The IOLs to be implanted are selected based on power calculations made before surgery.
