With nearly three million Americans undergoing cataract surgery annually this survey is essential for those anticipating the procedure. This handbook covers the most frequently asked questions, such as What type of new lens is implanted in the eye? What type of anesthesia is used? Is there pain after the surgery? and How soon will vision improve? A photographic outline illustrating how cataracts are removed and how new intraocular lenses are implanted is also included.
