Cataract surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic drops and is not painful. The procedure typically only takes 10-15 minutes to perform, during which the lens is implanted through a keyhole microscopic suture-less corneal incision.
Surgery is required when a cataract occurs – this is when the natural lens has lost its clarity and has become cloudy.
The cataract causes blurred vision, loss of contrast and can make driving difficult. This can occur at any age but is more common in people over 60 years old. Cataract surgery removes the cloudy lens protein and replaces this with a lens implant that can correct your glasses prescription for distance and near vision.
