  What Method is used ?
The best way to treat your cataract is to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a new, clear artificial lens. This can be accomplished two ways. The first technique, called extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE), involves removing the cloudy lens in one piece. This technique requires a large incision of 10 to 12 millimeters in length.This was the older method, requiring rest and care upto a month in most cases.
The second technique is the latest advance in cataract removal. It's called phacoemulsification, or phaco. In phaco surgery, a small ultrasonic probe is inserted into the eye. This probe breaks (emulsifies) the cloudy lens into tiny pieces and gently washed out This lens is then replaced with a clear man-made one. The new lens is inserted and it opens up like a flower when inside. No stitches are used and the incision is self healing . Phaco requires a small incision of only 2.6 millimeters or less.

This technique is the most successful method of restoring your vision following cataract surgery.
Whichever technique is used to remove your cataract, anesthesia will be a necessary part of the procedure. Two types of anesthesia, local or topical, are used in most cataract cases.
Local anesthesia eliminates any sensation of pain and prevents movement of the eye during surgery. Topical anesthesia OR Eye Drop Anaesthesia is administered by placing drops on your eye. It eliminates any sensation of pain but does not prevent your eye from moving around. Both types of anesthesia leave you fully awake and aware during the operation. The type of anesthesia that the surgeon will choose for you will depend on the technique your surgeon chooses and the condition of your eye.
