Cataract extraction, extracapsular (ECCE)

Marwan Atallah, Guillermo Amescua

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Cataracts can impair visual acuity and affect activities of daily living. They are the leading cause of blindness worldwide. Cataracts can also impede monitoring of other diseases. In all the above cases, surgical intervention is deemed appropriate. In cases where phacoemulsification is not available or with increased lens opacity (requiring high energy phacoemulsification), extracapsular cataract extraction can be considered. Patients should have been evaluated and appropriate biometric measurements taken. Patients should have been educated about the risks and benefits of the procedure, including alternatives.
