What is a Cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye that usually develops slowly over the years and gradually causes blurry, misty vision and eventually blindness.

What is Cataract Surgery?

Cataract surgery is the only effective treatment for a cataract and the most commonly performed operation in the UK.

The surgery involves the removal of the cloudy natural lens (the cataract) and replacing it with an artificial one. These are precisely manufactured and come in a range of styles and strengths, so a key part of the consultation is deciding which lens suits the individual.

The lens can be tailored for either distance or near vision using a monofocal lens or upgraded to a multifocal lens that can achieve both near and distance vision – giving patients the opportunity to enjoy their hobbies and daily activities without the dependence on visual aids.

While most procedures are carried out by hand, Laser Cataract Surgery uses a newly developed state-of-the-art laser, eliminating the use of a blade.


Our specialist, consultant Eye Surgeons are trained to the highest standards in corneal and refractive surgery.

Performing the most advanced vision correction procedures in state of the art hospital-based facilities around the United Kingdom, we achieve the best outcomes for our patients.

“I don’t know where to start but here goes. In August/September 2017 I had elective, lens replacement surgery at LaserVision. I have had, and continue to receive, outstanding treatment from Rakesh and all the team at Guildford. It is obvious from the outset of the treatment that the LaserVision team has a massive amount of experience gained from thousands of procedures. All questions are answered and Rakesh’s quiet assurance, belief, confidence in his ability coupled with his brilliant sense of humour is hugely reassuring. After 60 years I am really excited to live life without spectacles and being able to clearly see detail and colours I never knew existed . I would not hesitate to recommend LaserVision to anyone contemplating eye surgery – in fact I already have !! Thanks to all at LaserVision.”
