Fuchs Dystrophy: Video



The surgeon initially makes an incision (cut) at the edge of the cornea to create a pathway to the cataract. Next, he or she removes the cataract -- usually with a phacoemulsifier, which breaks up the lens and then sucks up the pieces.  (Remember: The cataract is in the lens.)  A lens implant is then inserted into the eye.  Finally, the surgeon sutures (sews up) the incision with a small, hooked needle.
