A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. For people who have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window. Clouded vision caused by cataracts can make it more difficult to read, drive a car (especially at night).

Cataract Surgery

 Before the surgery 

The doctor will do all the necessary tests and measurements for your eyes and will discuss with you regarding the lenses to be used. Th different kinds of lenses are monofocal(will correct distance vision only, you might still need reading glasses), trifocal (will correct near and distant vision, and special toric lenses (will correct astigmatism).

Inform your doctor if you have had any previous injuries or  eye operations , and if you are taking any medications.

 Surgery day 

Cataract surgery is generally done on an outpatient basis, which means you won't need to stay in a hospital after the surgery. During cataract surgery, the doctor uses local anesthetic to numb the area around your eye, but you usually stay awake during the procedure. You will have to lie down for the surgery and remain still.
