Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is an extremely safe and simple procedure with an excellent success rate. Cataract surgery involves removing the eye’s natural cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear, artificial lens implant, known as an intraocular lens (IOL). Both steps are usually done at the same time with topical anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. The procedure is painless before, during, and after surgery, and commonly takes only 10 to 15 minutes.

Cataract surgery is performed on one eye at a time, with a short healing period in between. At Southern Eye Group of Alabama, we offer both traditional cataract surgery and laser cataract surgery, as well as an array of IOL options to provide improvement in eye clarity and function.

After making a very small incision outside your field of vision, your eye surgeon will insert a tiny probe that uses ultrasound to break up the clouded natural lens. Once the natural lens is removed, the IOL will be inserted and correctly positioned.
