Cataract surgery

Cataracts cause blurred vision and glare.

Cataract surgery involves removal of the cloudy lens from the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens. Surgery is done under local anaesthesia as a daycase.

We also offer one-stop cataract surgery. This has the advantage of having the assessment and surgery in just one visit.

Laser Capsulotomy

Following cataract surgery, some patients may experience blurring due to the opacification of the capsule behind the artificial lens implant. The YAG laser can make an opening in this capsule and restore vision. This treatment is carried out in just one visit.
