How Long Does It Take to Have a Cataract Removed?

When considering a cataract surgery, many patients wonder about both the procedure itself and recovery time. If there’s anything we stress at Your Eye Specialists, it’s that we’re the laser cataract experts. We know how valuable time is, and we use it to the fullest advantage.

Cataract Removal and Recovery

To remove cataracts from your eye, which involves removing the protein-clumped lens and replacing it with an IOL (intraocular lens), is relatively short. This process takes an average of 10 minutes per eye. As for recovery, this takes some healing time. You may be able to see results within the next 24 hours, but we stress that you don’t make assessments until a week afterward.
