Phacoemulsification, commonly known as phaco surgery, is a cataract removal technique that utilizes an ultrasonic handpiece to aspirate and emulsify cataracts. The broken-down pieces of the lens are suctioned out of the eye with a vacuum, and the aspirated fluids are replaced with a balanced salt solution.
The ultrasonic technique came into existence as a revolutionary technology. Prior to this, surgeons had to remove the entire lens and capsule, and people had to wear thick, heavy glasses to correct their eye power. With phacoemulsification, this was no longer needed. And with the development of intraocular lenses, lens replacement after cataract surgery became a stable part of the treatment procedure.
By far, phaco surgery is the most common type of cataract surgery. If you need to undergo phaco cataract surgery in Chennai, get in touch with us.
