In comparison to many other surgical procedures cataract surgery is relatively straightforward. The full procedure will typically take between 30 and 45 minutes. You will be given a local anaesthetic, which means you will recover faster and be able to go home on the same day as the operation. The surgery involves removing the damaged lens from your eye. When the lens has been removed, the surgeon inserts a small plastic lens, called an intraocular implant, also known as an intraocular lens. Once the procedure is complete you are taken to a ward so you can recover before leaving the hospital later that day.

You will have a pre-assessment appointment with your consultant at either Yeovil Hospital or The Yeatman Hospital in Sherborne and if you require a cataract operation you will be operated on at The Yeatman Hospital.  Follow-up appointments will usually be held at The Yeatman too.

The surgery will be completed by one of our experienced ophthalmology consultants.
