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, at Emersons Green NHS Treatment Centre, also offer one-stop Cataract surgery. This has the advantage of having the assessment and surgery, all at the 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.

At Emersons Green Treatment Centre this treatment is done at the ONE visit.

Oculoplastic surgery

This involves surgery on eyelids. At Emersons Green NHS Treatment Centre we perform surgery for:

  • Ectropion; dropped lower lid
  • Entropion; Inturned lower lid, causing lashes to rub against the eye
  • Trichiasis; misdirected lashes rubbing against the eye
  • Ptosis; droopy upper eyelid
  • Dermatochalasis; excess skin on upper lids causing visual field restriction
  • Watery eyes – syringing, blocked tear ducts, endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy
  • Excision of lumps and bumps from eyelids
