Cataract Surgery in Rochester
Also serving Brighton, Gates and Irondequoit NY
During cataract surgery, a small ultrasonic probe is inserted into the eye that breaks up, or emulsifies, the cloudy lens into tiny pieces and gently sucks, or aspirates, those pieces out of the eye. Phaco surgery requires a small incision of only 2.8 mm or less. A combination of local anesthesia and IV sedation is used to make the procedure painless.
With the recent advance of foldable IOLs, artificial lenses can be implanted through the same small incision that is created in the phaco procedure. These IOLs are made of a flexible material, allowing them to be folded for implantation. Once inside the eye, the lens unfolds and returns to its original shape.
Our surgical coordinators are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
