The lens replacement procedure itself is like a cataract operation. According to the eye model, this is the front of the eye, which is the cornea. You’ve got the cornea in the front and behind the cornea. You’ve got the iris and the pupil in the middle, and behind it, you have the lens.
Lens replacement surgery is replacing the clear lens of the eye, while the cataract surgery you’re replacing the cloudiness in the eye.
The surgery itself is a very small keyhole surgery where we enter inside the eye. We use a special ultrasound device which emulsifies or break down the lens material and sucks it out. In that space, we put a new lens implant. The type of implant depends on what decision was made during the consultation. It could be a mono-focal lens implant, a multifocal lens implant, or it could be a toric lens implant that corrects your astigmatism.
