Were you looking for information on Cataract Surgery? Caterac surgery is a common misspelling of cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the United States. Two types of surgery are used to remove cataracts: phacoemulsification and extracapsular surgery. With either one, after the natural lens has been removed, it often is replaced by an artificial one, called an intraocular lens. The majority of people who undergo this procedure (which usually takes about an hour) have improved vision afterwards.
