What is Phacoemulsification?
Phacoemulsification is now the popular method of cataract surgery. It involves inserting a small ultrasound probe through a small 2-3mm incision in the cornea to break up the cloudy lens into small fragments, which are sucked out through the same probe. An artificial intraocular lens (IOL) implant is then inserted through the small wound and into the transparent lens bag that is left intact within the eye. Traditionally, IOL’s have only a single zone of clear focus (monofocal), usually set for excellent distance vision, but require the use of reading glasses for near tasks. With the advent of new technology, premium IOL’s now have several zones of clear focus and allow for simultaneous correction of both distance and near vision (multifocal).
