Phacoemulsification is a modern cataract surgery in which the eye’s internal lens is emulsified with an ultrasonic handpiece and aspirated from the eye. It is a non-stitch method of cataract removal. Aspirated fluids are replaced with irrigation of balanced salt solution to maintain the anterior chamber. It gives greater intraoperative control and faster postoperative recovery. Patients are able to resume normal activity much sooner and with fewer restrictions in a shorter duration of times that the traditional cataract surgery.
