For this purpose, a 1,8 mm microscopic incision is made in the cornea, through which an ultrasound probe is inserted to emulsify the clouded lens and remove it from the eye. A flexible intraocular lens is then introduced using an injector to the lens capsule through the same incision. The IOL is folded, when introduced, then it unfolds inside the eye and is secured in the capsule. The micro incision seals itself later, so the procedure requires no sutures.
