Cataract is removed using lasers.

Fact

Cataract is not removed with lasers. An ultrasound (phacoemulsification) machine is used to remove the cataract. Sometimes, several months after cataract surgery, the transparent membrane behind the intraocular lens may become hazy and reduce vision. A YAG laser is then used to make an opening in the capsule.
