Once you decide to have cataract surgery , you’ll need to choose an eye surgeon to perform the operation. Your surgeon will use a special microscope, which magnifies and illuminates the area of the procedure as he or she removes your cataract .

Whether phacoemulsification or extracapsular cataract extraction has been performed, follow up care is identical after surgery and healing generally proceeds with no complications. This allows the first eye to heal before the second cataract removal .

It is the most common operation in the UK, from which it takes four to six weeks to recover.
