Laser Vision Correction
At LaserVision, our consultant surgeons will discuss the different laser vision correction treatment options and help you make the right choice of treatment, which they will then go onto perform. LaserVision surgeons are all qualified practicing NHS consultants with special experience in corneal surgery.
Refractive Lens Exchange
Laser vision correction surgery can be considered at any age. For patients over fifty however, laser surgery is not always the best option. It is often better to choose refractive lens exchange. This is a particularly good choice for patients whom have lost the ability to accommodate, necessitating the need for glasses to read as well as see in the distance. There are lenses that can be implanted that enable near and distance vision.
NuVu™ – Refractive Lens Exchange
NuVu™ is the procedure often referred to as Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) or PRELEX and involves removing the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens. With major advances in lens technology, this solution has offered an alternative to laser eye surgery in those who are are over the age of 40 wanting a permanent solution for vision correction.
Phakic Lens Implants
If your prescription is too high, or your cornea is too thin to consider laser correction, this is the best option. Custom lens implants, or intraocular contact lenses are placed inside the eye and can correct from -6.00 Dioptres to -30.00 Dioptres. Placement involves minimal invasive surgery, with almost instantaneous results.
The proven solution for Presbyopia. The KAMRA™ Inlay is a mini-ring with an opening in the centre. It is much smaller than a contact lens and lighter than a grain of salt. The opening in the centre of the inlay restores near and intermediate vision by focusing light coming into the eye. In addition, the inlay’s advanced design features 8,400 high precision, laser etched micro-openings along the surface to help your cornea stay healthy.
Blended Vision is an advanced method for treating patients with presbyopia. It offers the opportunity to achieve freedom from glasses by combining the simplicity and accuracy of corneal refractive surgery with the benefits of increased depth of field in retaining visual quality.
In the last 60 years, cataract surgery has evolved more than any other operation. Today, thanks to advances in technology, most patients experience little or no pain and return to their normal activities the day after surgery. And modern cataract surgery can even correct common vision problems, including short-sight, long-sight, presbyopia and astigmatism, to reduce your dependence on glasses or contact lenses permanently.
There are a range of treatments for Keratoconus of which your LaserVision consultant surgeon can expertly guide you through.
Corneal Endothelial Transplant (DSAEK)
Treating Fuch’s Endothelial Dystrophy, DSAEK is a type of corneal transplant, commonly referred to as a ‘partial thickness’ or ‘lamellar’ corneal transplant. In Fuch’s Endothelial Dystrophy, the inner lining of the cornea, the endothelium, fails to function adequately. With a DSAEK operation, the inner lining is replaced, leaving the outer layers of the cornea untouched.
Photo-Therapeutic Keratectomy (PTK)
Photo-Therapeutic Keratectomy, or PTK, is a laser procedure that is performed to correct recurrent corneal erosions such Recurrent Erosion Syndrome as when other, more traditional treatments have failed.
