A cataract is called the blur of the lens of the eye. There is no drug treatment for cataracts and the blurred lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens (intraocular lens), which remains forever after surgery.
The most modern method of cataract removal is called phacoemulsification, known to the world as a “laser”, that is actually done with ultrasound.
The procedure is done with local anesthesia (drops), it lasts a little and has a rapid recovery and restoration of visual acuity. The patient’s eye is covered on the day of the operation, the patient goes to his / her home and the eye opens the next morning in the office.
