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. We can even prescribe relaxation medication if you need it. 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.
