Each year, ophthalmologists perform millions of eye lens replacements to correct the vision problems caused by cataracts. Almost all cataract surgeries — sometimes referred to in medical terms as phacoemulsification ("phaco") or ECCE — are handled as outpatient procedures in surgical centers, hospitals and clinics.
