What happens during the cataract surgery?

You'll be awake for the procedure, but your doctor will numb your eye with medicine, so you won't feel pain.

Usually, this procedure takes no more than an hour. The cataract will be removed through a small cut in the front of the eye. This procedure does not require an overnight stay but you will need to be driven home afterward.
