Inserting small aperture lens implants is a painless procedure carried out using local anaesthetic and can be performed by manual or femtosecond laser lens surgery. Typically taking as little as 15 minutes to perform, lens implant surgery does not do not require an overnight stay, although you may need to have each eye treated separately in two different operations.
After numbing the eye with anaesthetic eye drops a small incision in the edge of the cornea.
An opening is made in the capsular envelope of the lens. The cataract is then removed through this opening.
The new IC-8™ intraocular lens is inserted.
Following surgery you can go home the same day, and the eye will heal very rapidly.
