What is involved in cataract surgery?
Cataract surgery is one of the most common operations performed and one of the safest and most effective. Surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a substitute lens. If cataracts are present in both eyes, they cannot be removed at the same time. Your physician will need to perform surgery on each eye separately.
Cataracts are generally removed in one of two ways:
- Phacoemulsification (Also called small incision cataract surgery.)
This, most common, type of cataract removal procedure involves the surgeon making a small incision on the side of the cornea - the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye - where a tiny probe emits ultrasound waves to soften and break up the cloudy center of the lens. The cataract is then removed by suction through the same incision.
- Extracapsular Surgery
During this procedure, a longer incision is made on the side of the cornea to remove the hard center of the lens; the remainder of the lens is then removed by suction.

How does the Crystalens work?
Crystalens replaces the eye’s natural lens (the cataract) and is designed to recreate the eye’s natural focusing ability. As with the natural lens, Crystalens accommodates, or moves and flexes, in response to ciliary muscle contractions in the eye. These contractions adjust the Crystalens focus so the eye can maintain a clear image as you shift your attention from distance to intermediate or near objects.

What is the difference between an Optometrist, Ophthalmologist and Optician?
An Optician is involved in the fitting and making of eyeglasses. Optometrists and Ophthalmologists are both eye doctors who diagnose and treat various vision conditions and eye diseases. The main difference between an Optometrist and Ophthalmologist is that an Ophthalmologist is also trained to do eye surgery.
