How Cataract Surgery is performed?

Method-1: Extracapsular surgery

  2. During this procedure, the cataract (cloudy central section) is slipped out of the lens in one piece without breaking into the pieces through a slit that is made on the side of the cornea.
  3. The rest of the lens is vacuumed out and replaced by the artificial lens.


Method-2: Intracapsular Cataract surgery

  1. In this method, a larger slit than the extracapsular method is made on the side of the cornea by the surgeon.
  2. The eye lens is removed all at once instead of breaking it into pieces and an artificial lens or Intraocular lens (IOL) is placed in the eye.


Method-3: Phacoemulsification

  1. Phacoemulsification is also called small incision cataract surgery and is similar to the extracapsular surgery but in a more advanced way. 
  2. A local anesthetic is given and a small opening is made at the side of the cornea.
