Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people, particularly in the ageing population and is the principal cause of curable

blindness in the world. Cataract surgery is very successful in restoring vision through intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. In fact, it is the most frequently performed surgery in our hospital. The hospital performs around 7,000 cataract surgeries annually. Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS) and Phaco emulsification both techniques are done routinely here.
