Cataract Surgery

About Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in ophthalmology and thus represents a substantial portion of the surgical caseload performed at Cleveland Clinic's Cole Eye Institute. In 2020, about 8740 surgeries were performed at main campus and the regions. Outcomes were tracked on 5703 cases which included main campus and a provider from Lorain surgery center. The lower number of overall procedures in 2020 over previous years were a result of the COVID pandemic.
