Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed on the eye. It is a common and effective procedure to cataracts, the clouding of the lens in the eye that leads to blurred vision. Cataracts can occur at any age but are more common in older people. Miss Anna Grabowska provides cataract surgery in London at King’s College Hospital.

Cataract surgery procedure

There are several steps to the cataract surgery procedure:

  1. Consultation

Patients first undergo a thorough eye examination to assess the severity of cataracts and determine the suitability for surgery. Miss Grabowska will discuss the procedure, potential risks, and benefits with the patient during this consultation. You will also be able to arrange a date for your surgery or surgeries if necessary.

  1. Pre-op

Prior to surgery, patients may need to undergo certain pre-operative tests and assessments to ensure they are in good health for the procedure. The surgeon may also provide instructions on medications and fasting before the surgery. This may differ from patient to patient.

  1. Surgery

Cataract surgery is usually an outpatient procedure. Most patients have the procedure under local anaesthetic, and it is a quick and safe procedure. Miss Grabowska will make a small incision in the eye and uses specialised instruments to safely remove the clouded lens.

The lens is then replaced with an artificial IOL. The artificial lens will also be to the correct prescription you need and you may no longer need to wear glasses.

  1. Recovery

After the surgery, patients need to be monitored for a short period before being able to go home. The recovery period is relatively quick, with most patients experiencing improved vision within a few days to a week.

  1. Follow-up care

Once a patient has had cataract surgery they will need to attend follow-up appointments. This allows Miss Grabowska to check the healing process and ensure the best possible outcome.
