Steps of Cataract surgery

Steps of cataract surgery require extreme dexterity and paying attention to details

First step of cataract surgery

After making very tiny incisions (one of them is less than 1mm, the other barely over 2mm), Dr Khalil then proceeds with the following steps: A specially designed probe of the phaco system is introduced through the tiny incision made to emulsify the opaque lens (or cataract) by its ultrasonic waves

The emulsified lens matter is then aspirated by yet another probe of the phaco system.

Third step of cataract surgery

Dr Khalil then inserts a tiny flexible lens, adjusted for the power of your eye, is then injected, while folded, by Dr Khalil into your eye. When it enters its place inside your eye, it automotically unfolds, and lies steady in its place.
