http://www.nucleusinc.com/medical-animation This medical animation shows the removal of a cloudy lens via Phacoemulsification (type of eye surgery), and the placement of an artificial lens. The basic anatomy of the eye and its ability to receive light is contrasted with the negative effects of a cataract lens. During a phacoemulsification, an ultrasound probe breaks the cloudy lens into tiny fragments. The fragments are vacuumed out through a tiny incision. An intraocular lens implant is then inserted to replace the natural lens that was removed.

    Just got it done yesterday, I work nights in the ICU so I came home showered and went to it, knocked out right after and woke up next day! My doctor said no eye makeup for a week or two 🤔 and today I was having a difficulty opening my eyes so I can’t fully say how it is yet, can’t wait to see in the day time if I see clear and if I can read letter from distance like the monitors at work.

    What anesthesia u guys use

  17. JP

    Just had cataract surgery yesterday. It was painless, I couldn’t even see the tools going in my eye and the whole thing only took about 10 minutes

  18. Baxoltl

    Damn it sucks these are over 3,000$ a eye bc I need this lol 🙃

  19. Fakenine

    just learned that i have a cataract in my right eye at 22 years old. Feelsbadman

  20. Chris evans

    Recently had my second cataract done, with fantastic results, painless and quick operation and the sedation I had was something else!!!

  21. सुजयींद्र राव्



    Just curious, what's the aftermath like? Is there pain after the anesthetic wears off? I've had my wisdom teeth removed and a crown lengthening done. I have a ridiculously high pain tolerance and I still felt some minor pain during the healing process.

    My grandma has cataract and it is do bad she can't do day to day things by herself because of her cataract.

    It is getting so bad that she can't even pick up the phone, so she signed up for the surgery.

    Very helpful to see how her surgery will be performed. Thanks a lot!

  25. Luis Orzuna

    Just imagine your surgeon pulling up this video as a tutorial once the procedure starts.

  26. T3rraBlox

    The vision in my left eye has been blurry for about 3 weeks now, I’ve got an appointment booked and I am slowly approaching that appointment, any idea what could be wrong with my eye?
