Stages of cataract surgery procedure
Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure that does not take long to do. It would be nice if you understood clearly the sequence of cataract surgery procedures before carrying out it.

Before surgery, your doctor will also examine your eyes, to determine the type of intraocular lens implant that is most suitable according to the needs and conditions of the eye. You are not recommended to wear eye makeup when the D-day surgery arrives.

Next, the surgery begins by making a small incision in the cornea of the eye so that the opaque lens from the cataract will open. The doctor then inserts an ultrasound probe into the eye, with the aim of removing the cataract lens.
The probe that delivers ultrasound waves will destroy the cataract lens while taking the remaining parts. The new lens implant is then inserted into the eye through the small incision.
In most cases, the incision is able to close by itself so that no stitches are needed on the cornea. Finally, your eyes will be closed using a bandage that the operation is complete.

All of these conditions are normal and normal. You can submit all complaints related to postoperative problems at a doctor's visit which is usually scheduled a few days after the operation. Here, the doctor will also monitor the condition of your eyes and the quality of your vision.
In addition, you will be prescribed eye drops to prevent infection, reduce inflammation, while controlling eye pressure. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes for a while.
