A cataract is the clouding of the eyes natural lens. With time, the cataract blurs vision and causes glare.
At Mona Vale
Eye Centre, cataract surgery is the most common eye operation performed. We offer small-incision cataract surgery (phacoemulsification),
and always replace the cataract with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). We use aspheric IOL, which has been shown to improve
The surgery is normally performed under local anaesthetic and takes approximately 20 minutes. This gives quick
recovery and offers lower risk than with general anaesthetic and traditional surgical methods. Patients are discharged home
the same day and reviewed the next day.
Surgery is performed in Mona Vale at Pittwater Day Surgery and Dalcross Adventist Hospital.
