Types of Cataract & Cataract Surgery

There are three primary types of age-related cataracts:

  • Nuclear sclerotic
  •  Cortical
  •  Posterior sub capsular

 As a person ages, any one type, or a combination of any of these three types, can develop over time.

Two main types of surgical procedures are in common use throughout the world. The first procedure is

  • Phacoemulsification
  •  Extra capsular cataract extraction (ECCE)

In most surgeries an intraocular lens is inserted.
