Phacoemulsification
is today accepted as the most proficient way for cataract removal. Here, ultrasonic power is used to emulsify the nucleus and to remove the emulsate by a fluid circuit. It causes minimal disturbance to the eyes and no sutures are required. Thus recovery is very fast after a patient undergoes phacoemulsification to remove cataract.  

The highlights of phacoemulsification procedure:

aPatients can have the surgery done and walk home, the same day 
aThe procedure makes a minimum incision of 3.2 mm and hence no sutures
    are necessary. This results in faster healing and recovery in 10-15 days 
aPatients can start reading and watch Television from the next day onwards 
aThe surgery is not very expensive
