In the majority of cases, cataract surgery is a routine and relatively straightforward surgical procedure.
On occasion, unique individual cases may present with complex cataracts which can challenge the successful completion of surgery. Our team of Laser Vision doctors hold positions within the NHS as consultant eye surgeons and have a combined experience of over 100 years.
We are well equipped to manage complex cases using state-of-the-art technology such as the Ziemer Z-8 laser.
What are the Symptoms?
What are the Causes?
Cataract surgery may be complicated by the following reasons: very high prescription glasses, injury or trauma, history of inflammatory episodes such as Iritis or Uveitis, Glaucoma, medications such as Doxazosin or Tamulosin, high blood pressure, chronic cough and severe anxiety.
What is the Diagnosis?
The only proven treatment that is effective and reverses the effect of cataract is surgical removal of the natural lens and implantation of an artificial lens.
Most cataract surgery is performed by ultrasound, in a technique called ‘phacoemulsification’. The most precise and advanced method for removing cataracts now is with femtosecond laser technology, also known as ‘Femto Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery’ (FLACS)
At LaserVision, we use the latest Ziemer Z8 Laser technology; which is proven to be the fastest and lowest energy laser in the world. Surgery also offers the opportunity to reduce dependency on glasses and contact lenses by choosing a bespoke premium lens.
Your consultant can discuss these options with you during a consultation.
Choosing the right vision correction clinic for your surgery is paramount. This is a life changing procedure after all, and you need to have complete trust in your surgeon and care team of professionals.
