Is there pain when undergoing a cataract surgery?

No, there is no pain during a cataract surgery as local anaesthesia is given before the procedure. Some patients may also be given sedation to relax them. The surgery is usually completed in 15-20 minutes per eye with minimal discomfort.
A protective eye shield is placed over the operated eye and the patient is able to go home after 2-3 hours of rest in the ward.
