About Cataract Surgery with Northern Ophthalmic Associates
Cataract surgery at Northern Ophthalmic Associates is a short and virtually painless procedure. First, a small incision is created in the eye to access the capsule that holds the eye’s natural lens. Ultrasound energy is used to fragment the cataractous lens into small pieces so they can then be gently suctioned out of the eye. The natural lens is replaced with an IOL, which is carefully and precisely positioned. The incision may be closed with a small stitch or it may heal itself. Patients typically recover within a few days.
