Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery is a day procedure, usually performed under anaesthetic drops and sedation, and on most occasions the patient can go home without a patch over the eye and with vision improving rapidly over the next 48-72 hours.

Routine small incision cataract surgery involves creating a tiny incision on the cornea and removing the natural but clouded lens of the eye and placing an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens) where the natural lens was found and involves the use of ultrasound energy.

The length of your stay at the centre will be approximately 2 hours which includes your procedure time. The rate of recovery varies, but vision generally improves quickly over a 24 to 72 hour period. Only one eye is operated on at a time. Usually, the most affected eye is treated first. The second eye may be treated the day after surgery on the first eye depending on the rate of recovery and instructions from your doctor.

ParkView Day Surgery has two dedicated ophthalmic theatres and recovery areas that are used for cataract surgery and use the Centurion cataract removal system that offers enhanced ultrasound phacoemulsification modalities enabling flexibility in the way the cataract is removed thereby improving safety and rate of recovery.
