Small Incision Eye Surgery Cataract

In small incision cataract surgery, a mild sedative is used in combination with a topical anaesthetic to numb the area. The cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial one. Here’s how the surgery is performed.

  • The anaesthetic is administered in the form of eye drops to numb the area, and an intravenous sedative is used to relax the patient
  • A microscopic incision is created
  • Ultrasound waves are used to loosen the cataract, after which it is carefully aspirated from the eye
  • The final step is the insertion of an intraocular lens
  • The incisions created are extremely fine and heal without sutures in most cases

Most patients experience improved vision almost immediately. While side effects and complications are extremely rare, the eye surgery experts at NewVision Clinics monitor patients closely to ensure the best results.
