If you have been told that you have a cataract, there is no need to worry. Each year in the United States, more than 2.5 million people have cataract surgery. Thanks to Multi-focal Implants, life for the cataract patient has greatly improved. These advanced intraocular lenses (IOL’s) function to allow patients excellent vision without the need for spectacles.
To begin the procedure, your eye will be treated with an anesthetic to minimize the discomfort. A tiny incision is made for a microscopic instrument to pass through it. Using ultrasound from the tip of the microscopic instrument, the doctor will be able to gently break the cataract into pieces small enough to be washed away, drawn through the instrument and removed from the eye. The new lens is readily inserted and placed in position through the same tiny incision at the outer edge of the cornea through which the cataract was removed.
