The Operation

It involves removing the cloudy lens through a very small key hole incision in front of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens implant.  The operation is most commonly performed under local anaesthetic, using either drops or injection. You will not be able to see what is happening. Sometimes local anaesthetic may not be suitable, in which case you will be offered referral for a general anaesthetic. Usually no stitches are needed.
