Micro-incisional phacoemulsification for Cataracts

A cataract is a condition which causes clouding of the lens in the eye resulting in blurry vision.

The most common procedure used to treat cataract is micro-incisional phacoemulsification, a minimally-invasive procedure that uses sound waves passed through an ultrasound probe to disintegrate the lens affected by cataract. The lens is then removed via suction. An artificial intraocular lens is then inserted through a small “micro” incision (1.8 to 2.8 mm), and unfolded in the lens capsule to replace the previous cataract lens.
