What does it mean to get a cataract surgery?

Cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is removal of the cataract and replacing it with an aritificial lens (implant).
Cataract Surgery. We are all born with a natural crystalline lens in each of our eyes which, like a lens in a camera, helps focus light. As we age and as a result of certain diseases (like diabetes), our lenses may opacify, blocking light entry. In cataract surgery, the lens is broken up with an ultrasonic probe and removed with an aspiration device. Then, a synthetic lens made of clear acrylic or silicon is placed in the position of the original lens, replacing it. The result is a new, clear lens to focus light in place of the old, opacified one.
Cataract surgery. Cataract surgery removes the lens opacity in a patient whose vision has deteriorated and replaces it with a lens implant.
Lens removal. Extraction of the human lens and implantation of a prosthetic intraocular lens.
Lens replacement. A cataract is a cloudy lens causing reversible vision loss. Vision is restored by an outpatient surgery where the natural lens is commonly broken up and removed through a tiny incision and then replaced with a permanent artificial lens implant.
