Phacoemulsification Surgery – Advantages & Disadvantages


Phacoemulsification is a sort of contemporary cataract eye surgery. Cataract is a type of eye disease in which the natural lens of the eye becomes clouded, resulting in blurred, foggy, or impaired vision. Cataracts can only be treated surgically; no medication will assist. During phacoemulsification eye surgery, the clouded lens of the eye is fractured into small fragments and suctioned out of the eye. In place of the clouded lens, a clear artificial lens is utilized. This process enhances your vision by making it better, sharper, and more clear.
