Can all patients having a cataract undergo Phaco surgery?

Your eye surgeon will be the best judge to decide whether you can undergo micro incision phaco-surgery. Each patient undergoing cataract surgery at our centre is examined in detail to assess the endothelial count of the cornea using the automated Specular Microscope. This facility at The Himalayan Eye Institute is one of the very few available in Eastern India. Based on findings of the endothelial count by specular microscopy it may be necessary to alter certain medication used at the time of surgery. If the endothelial cell count is low we are using BSS Plus and Viscoat, which are imported medicines, to minimize loss of the already depleted endothelial cell counts during surgery.
