Are there needles used in cataract surgery?

This is a common concern for folks as we discuss how the procedure is done.   It is extremely unlikely that needle would be required for the procedure.   Eye drops are used to numb the eye and dilated the pupil prior to surgery.

In rare circumstance, the only needle that is used is to place anesthetic behind the eyeball so that it temporary paralysis the eye muscles.
