Are you looking for a professional Ophthalmologist here in Bismarck North Dakota that can perfom "Small Incision Cataract Surgery"?  The trained Professionals at Dakota Eye Institute in Bismarck have many qualified Eye Surgeons experienced with Small Incision Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery is performed one of two ways. The first technique, called extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE), involves removing the cloudy lens in one piece. This technique requires a large incision of 10 to 12 millimeters in length.

The second method is called Phacoemulsification or Phaco; also called "Small Incision Cataract Surgery".  This involves opening a tiny incision, less than inch in size, through the edge of the clear cornea. Through this small incision, ultrasonic phacoemulsification with microsurgical instruments dissolve the cataract and allow it to be vacuumed out. Then, a soft, foldable intraocular lens is placed where the cataractous lens used to be allowing a clear focused light to reach the retina. A valve-like construction of the tiny surgical opening allows it to self-seal so that stitches are not required. Vision quickly returns to the potential of the eye, and limitations of activity are minor and brief. If their vision permits, patients can often return to driving and work within 24 - 48 hours.
