Before your surgery, your surgeon will answer any questions you have and go over your best options to meet your visual demands.
During your surgery, your surgeon will safely remove the cloudy lens inside your eye and replace it with a clear lens implant.
Shortly after your surgery, you’re prescribed eye drops, safe to be driven home and instructed to follow up with your surgeon as directed.
If you have cataracts in both of your eyes, your surgeon will perform surgery on one eye first! After they’ve ensured proper healing of this eye, they’ll perform surgery on your other eye (if necessary).
Remember, cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the world and is a very safe procedure!
