Phacoemulsification At Trusted LASIK Surgeons in Las Vegas, NV
Trusted Lasik Surgeons in Las Vegas, NV provide phacoemulsification for those who are suffering from cataracts. A cataract, or clouding of the eye lens, can cause some serious vision loss when left untreated. Phacoemulsification aims to counter that vision impairment by destroying the cataract. If you are a Las Vegas citizen with a cataract, below you can find more information about this particular surgery.
What is Phacoemulsification?
It is a cataract surgery that uses ultrasound to emulsify the eye's lens. Before the surgery even begins, the eye doctor will likely apply sterilization techniques to ensure the patient's safety. The doctor will also use a local or topical anesthetic to prevent the patient from blinking or moving the eye during the procedure. Incisions will be made into the cornea and the sclera of the eye.
The cataract is then broken up and suctioned out with the right surgical tools. Once the cloudy lens is removed, it is replaced with the insertion of an intraocular lens. The doctor will give you aftercare directions for the recovery period afterward. An eye shield may be provided to protect the eye from potential harm during this period. A post-operative examination may be needed to check in on the patient's eye health in the following days.
What to Expect from Phacoemulsification
The main benefit of phacoemulsification is that the patient's eyesight will be restored. Cataracts cause visual impairment that gradually leads to blurry vision, faded colors, difficulty seeing, and halos around lights. In some extreme cases, cataracts can lead to blindness. Poor vision may also contribute to mental health problems, leading to a higher risk of depression and isolation. Without proper vision, it also becomes more difficult for someone to perform everyday tasks such as driving. Phacoemulsification will end that impairment by breaking up the cataract in a person's eye.
Eye care specialists like to use this modern surgery due to its effectiveness. In one quick 10 to 20 minute session, a cataract can be removed permanently.
