What Is the Best Time to Undergo Cataract Surgery?

One may ask when the best time is to undergo cataract surgery. A cataract causes clouding of the intraocular lens and prevents natural light and images from reaching the retina. Previously it was thought that one should undergo cataract surgery when the cataract becomes mature or white in color.

But with newer techniques of cataract surgery and great advancements in technology, one can undergo cataract surgery earlier. The newer techniques of phacoemulsification ensure fast surgery, safe surgery, and rapid recovery without the need for a bandage or stitch. The wound is exceedingly small, and most patients do not face any complications. This is an extremely safe procedure and is of short duration between 10 to 30 minutes in total.
