With cataract surgery, your eye’s cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant called an intraocular lens or IOL. A small incision is made in the side of the cornea (the front part of your eye), the doctor inserts a tiny instrument that uses high-frequency ultrasound to break up the center of the cloudy lens and carefully suction it out. After the cloudy lens has been removed, the doctor will replace it with an IOL. The IOL becomes a permanent part of your eye.
