Dr. Mark Schneider performs one of the most advanced procedures available today for cataracts. Phacoemulsification is a surgery in which the clouded cataract is depleted by ultrasound, irrigated, and suctioned out. This technique has quickly gained popularity in recent years and is now considered the most preferred type of surgery for cataracts.
During the procedure, Dr. Schneider makes a small incision and using an ultrasound device that emits high-frequency waves; he breaks the cataract into very tiny pieces and suctions them out. After cleaning up, a thin lens is then inserted.
Phacoemulsification is not painful, and patients can resume their normal activities faster than with other types of procedures. The wound heals faster and fewer follow-up visits are required. Because of the tiny size of the incision, stitches are not required.
