Cataract is treated only through a surgery in which our damaged natural lens is replaced by an artificial intraocular lens to restore our vision.

Types of Cataract Surgery?

1. Phacoemulsification

In this surgery the incisions given are very small which does not require stitches. Phaco probe breaks the lens via ultrasound energy into pieces which are then removed and Intra-ocular lens is placed.

  • No need of sutures.
  • Safe

2. Microincision Cataract Surgery (MICS)

In this incision size is further reduced in this technique for better outcomes.

  • Suitable for Diabetics
  • Astigmatism is less
  • Less need of Corrective glasses
  • No anesthesia
  • Best for Premium IOLs

3. LRCS (Robotic Femto Assisted Cataract Surgery)/FLACS

Laser –assisted Cataract Surgery uses Femtosecond Laser guided by an advanced imaging system called OCT to create precise incisions. The computer guided incisions are accurate, and reproducible unlike incisions made with a surgical blade by hand. This is safer and more reliable than traditional cataract surgery. The lens is then removed and replaced with an IOL.


  • Gentle on the cornea as laser is of extremely low intensity
  • Unmatched precision
  • Astigmatism is less
  • Extremely short duration laser contact with the eye
  • No inflammation
  • Comfortable and painless procedure
  • Suitable for patients with thin corneas and extreme myopia
  • Procedure lasts for a few minutes
  • Quick recovery
  • Good sight within hours

Femtosecond Laser is safe and accurate. It is also used to correct short sight, long sight, distorted vision and focusing problems that appear with age.

IOL (Intraocular Lenses):

An intraocular lens is a tiny, artificial lens for the eye. It replaces the eye's natural lens that is removed during cataract surgery.

The lens bends (refracts) light rays that enter the eye, helping you to see. Your lens should be clear. But if you have a cataract, your lens has become cloudy. Things look blurry, hazy or less colorful with a cataract. Cataract surgery removes this cloudy lens and replaces it with a clear IOL to improve your vision.

IOLs come in different focusing powers, just like prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Your ophthalmologist will measure the length of your eye and the curve of your cornea. These measurements are used to set your IOLs focusing power.

What are IOLs made of?

Most IOLs are made of silicone, acrylic, or other plastic compositions. They are also coated with a special material to help protect your eyes from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Types of IOL's

Monofocal IOLs

The most common type of lens used with cataract surgery is called a monofocal IOL. It has one focusing distance. It is set to focus for up close, medium range or distance vision. Most people have them set for clear distance vision. Then they wear eyeglasses for reading or close work.

Some IOLs have different focusing powers within the same lens. These are called multifocal and accommodative lenses. These IOLs reduce your These IOLs reduce your dependence on glasses by giving you clear vision for more than one set distance.

Multifocal &/or Trifocal IOLs

These IOLs provide both distance and near focus at the same time. The lens has different zones set at different powers.

Accommodative IOLs

These lenses move or change shape inside your eye, allowing focusing at different distances.

Toric IOLs

For people with astigmatism, there is an IOL called a toric lens. Astigmatism is a refractive error caused by an uneven curve in your cornea or lens. The toric lens is designed to correct that refractive error.

As you plan for your cataract surgery, talk to our ophthalmologist about your vision needs and expectations. He or she will explain IOL options for you in more detail.
