Extracapsular cataract extraction with Intraocular lens


A natural crystalline lens is responsible for the vision of the normal eye. When this lens becomes cloudy and impairs the eyesight, the condition is known as a cataract. The surgical treatment usually calls for replacing the biological lens with an intraocular lens. The surgical technique where the faulty lens is removed but the elastic covering is kept intact for the intraocular lens is known as Extracapsular cataract extraction with intraocular lens.
