Cataract can be called as a cloudy and painless around found over the lens of human eyes. A human lens is enclosed often with a line known as lens capsules. The purpose of cataract surgery simply separates the cataract from this very lens capsule making things visible for the patient. In a majority of cases, you can find the lens being replaced with something called intraocular lens implant or IOL.

As per reports, there are no medications or eye drop invented for the treatment of cataract in human eyes. If you are the victim of cataract, you have no option but to go for the cataract surgery.

Phacoemulsification (small-incision surgery)

This is among the most common kind of cataract surgery being carried out by the eye surgeons. It is more popular as compared to the Standard extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) despite being very much similar to each other.   In this procedure, you find the surgeon making two small size incisions that are made over the eye wherein a clear front cover or cornea is seen meeting the white portion of the eye called sclera. The surgeon then creates a circular opening there over the surface of the lens usually termed as capsule. The small surgical tool called Phaco probe is then inserted over the eye, which helps in breaking the cataract into a couple of small pieces seeking the sound waves. At times, even laser used for this purpose of breaking the cataract. The cataract along with the lens pieces are then removes by the surgeon with the help of the procedure called suction. Later the surgeon places an IOL (intraocular lens implant) over the lens capsules followed by sealing up the incisions without any stitches.

Standard extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE)

This surgery helps in removing the cataract found in human eyes. In this surgical procedure, the surgeon removes the natural lens of your eyes when the capsule is placed there holding the lens as well. This cataract surgery starts with a local anaesthesia and then the surgeon is seen making an 8 to 10 mm of incisions over the affected eye wherein a clear front covering of the eye or cornea is seen meeting up the white portion of the eye known as sclera. The surgeon then makes another incision over the front area of the lens capsules followed by removing the lens along with keeping the remaining lens material at bay.  At the end the surgeon is then seen placing the intraocular lens implant over the lens capsules and finally he or she closes the incision without any stitches. This procedure is regarded as the older ones, which has got certain advancements making it the procedure called Phacoemulsification, which carries small size incisions.
