    total and can only be performed on one eye at a
    time. You may need to spend two hours at the eye
    care center for completion of the entire
    procedure undertaken by an expert eye specialist.

    surgeon, you will require visiting the eye care
    center after a few days.

At the time of the treatment, the skin nearby
your eye will be cleaned and covered with
germfree bandages. A small cut will be made by
the surgeon in your eye with an ultrasound-driven
device to break the suction and cataract away
from the remains. During the surgery, doctors may
use some special instruments to crack it into
small pieces.
After taking out your cloudy but natural lens, a
silicone or plastic intraocular lens will be
fixed in your eye. Immediately after completion
of this task, your eye will be enclosed with a
safe shield and also an eye drop will be
recommended by the doctor.
