We remove cataracts to restore vision. For most patients, the treatment of choice is a minimally-invasive procedure, called phacoemulsification.
The surgery lasts about 30 minutes and can usually be performed as a day case, under local anaesthesia. This means patients recover very quickly from surgery and don’t need to stay overnight in hospital.
