Before cataract surgery is scheduled, your surgeon will check your eyes and determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. If cataract surgery is recommended, your doctor will review the different package options available and give recommendations based on your visual needs and lifestyle. At Ocala Eye, each patient is given his or her own Vision Care Specialist that will take their unique measurements, review the procedure in great detail, and aid throughout the pre-operative process.
The operation itself entails making a tiny incision in the eye. Through this incision, your surgeon inserts an instrument about the size of a pen tip. This instrument uses ultrasound to vaporize and vacuum the cloudy lens and thereby removes it from the eye.
