Cataract or clouding of the natural crystalline lens can be corrected surgically by removing the cataract and replacing the same with an intraocular lens (IOL) implant. Ultrasound A Scan and keratotomy tests are used for accurate IOL power calculation.
The cataract is removed with phacoemulsification, a technique wherein ultrasonic energy is used to break and emulsify the cataract followed by removal. All this performed through an incision size of just 2.75mm. Our phaco machine, AMO Sovereign,with new white star technology allows cold phaco (minimal build up of heat during cataract surgery
That is much safer for the eye compared to conventional phaco machines. IOL selection is customized for each individual to ensure best visual outcome. The surgery is painless and patients can return home
