What to Expect During Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is an amazingly quick outpatient procedure that can erase years of poor vision. The entire surgical process takes 15-20 minutes to perform.
When you decide to move forward with the procedure, it’s normal to feel a little nervous. Our staff at Fisher-Swale-Nicholson Eye Center understands this and will do everything we can to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible. The main goal is that you feel 100% confident in our surgical abilities.
Only one eye is treated at a time. If you have cataracts in both eyes, your second eye can be treated after the first has healed (minimum of 2 weeks later).
Remember: not all cataracts must be removed right away. The best way to know if your cataracts are developed enough to warrant surgery is by scheduling a Cataract Evaluation. Our informative exam will shed new light on your eye health and will help you learn more about your options for vision improvement.
