Did you know cataract surgery has been performed for thousands of years? The ancient Romans, Greeks, Indians, and the Chinese developed remarkably effective methods of ridding their patients of cataracts. Unfortunately, the lack of both proper anesthesia and sanitation made these operations much more painful and involved than anything a modern patient would be expected to undergo.
In stark contrast, modern cataract surgery is simple, painless, and quick, the procedure itself often taking less than a quarter of an hour. During the surgery, injections or medicated drops are given so that there is no pain, and an artificial replacement lens is surgically implanted to help protect your eye.
