Cataract surgery performed before 800 B.C.
Br J Ophthalmol. 1975 Mar; 59(3):171.BJ

Abstract

The general belief that the technique of cataract extraction in India in the Sushruta period (800 B.C.) was couching is no longer tenable. A study of the original text suggests that the method was more closely allied to the extracapsular extraction of recent times.
