The treatment consists of surgery and phacoemulsification, using only a topical anesthetic and without the need for sutures. A foldable intraocular lens is subsequently implanted.
Cataract is a very common visual disorder and the surgery has undergone many great advances in recent years.
Phacoemulsification is a quick and safe technique that requires an incision of only 3 mm and does not require suturing.
A topical anesthetic is used. The appropriate level of anesthesia is obtained for a successful surgery, avoiding painful needle pricks.
Visual recovery is fast, without the need for bandaging.
Surgery is done on an outpatient basis, minimizing time away from work.
