Cataract surgery is a life-changing 15-minute procedure that extracts the cataract and replaces it with an intraocular lens implant, or IOL. Modern cataract surgery liquefies the cataract using ultrasound, which is then suctioned out through a very small microincision that requires no sutures. The IOL is inserted through the same microincision in a folded position, which then opens up into its proper and permanent position.
Standard cataract IOLs correct distance vision. Most cataract patients will require reading glasses to see up close and use a computer. However, there are a number of premium lens options available that are accommodative or multifocal, allowing the patient to focus at a wider, more complete range of distances.
