  • Before surgery

    Our eye care specialists will conduct various tests to establish the shape of your eye and cornea when you decide to have cataract surgery. With the help of these tests, the surgeons can determine which intraocular lens will provide you with the greatest post-operative vision. Before surgery, patients are urged to fast for 12 hours without eating or drinking.
  • During surgery

    For surgery anesthetic drops are used to completely numb the nerves inside and around your eye and sedatives also will be given to relax the body. The surgery usually takes an hour or less to perform. The clouded lens will remove and an artificial clean lens will be placed under the cornea during cataract surgery.
  • After surgery

    Patients are instructed to go home and rest for the remainder of the day following their surgery. They asked to wear an eye shield or eyeglasses to help protect the eye for a fixed time and not allowed to shake head more and wash it.

    Some mild discomfort and itching, along with some fluid, also will present in patients for the two days immediately after surgery. Most of the discomfort should disappear after a couple of days and complete healing occur almost within eight weeks.

    In order to manage eye pressure, inflammation, and prevent infection, your doctor may advise eye drops or other medications. These drugs may occasionally be administered into the eye during surgery.
