Corrective Surgery: Phacoemulsification

PhacoemulsificationThe most modern way of removing a cataract is through the use of phacoemulsification.

The phacoemulsifier is an ultrasonic probe that vibrates 40 000 times a second and breaks up the cataract in microscopic pieces which are then emulsified and gently aspirated out of the eye.

This method of cataract removal is considered to be the least traumatic to the eye.
