Useful information about the eye treatments we offer

Standard cataract surgery is the traditional procedure for removing cataracts.

During this surgery, we remove the cloudy natural lens in the eye and replace it with a clear standard artificial lens (also known as an intraocular lens).

With standard cataract surgery, We expect that you will need to resume wearing prescription glasses after surgery. Learn more about the treatment here.

With lifestyle cataract surgery, we remove the cataract and implant an artificial lens in its place. You can resume all activities afterwards and will still require spectacles for certain tasks. Learn more about this treatment here.

Laser cataract surgery goes above and beyond cataract surgery by removing your cataracts and correcting your vision at the same time, therefore reducing your dependency on glasses and contact lenses. Learn more about this treatment here.

Glaucoma treatment involves lowering the intraocular pressure in the eye to prevent further damage to the optic nerve. We do this with one or a combination of eye drops, medications, laser treatment or surgery, depending on how advanced the glaucoma is. Learn more about these treatments here.

Depending on the type of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), we make lifestyle and dietary recommendations, or use supplements or intravitreal injections to stabilise your vision and to try and prevent further visual decline. Learn more about these treatments here.

Treatment for this condition can include one or a combination of medication and/or laser to stabilise the macula and vision. Learn more about this treatment here.

The need for diabetic retinopathy treatment depends on the stage of the condition. However, all treatments aim to slow or stop the progression of diabetic eye disease and include either laser, medication, or surgery.

Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL or CCL) is a treatment that strengthens the bonds within the cornea and prevents keratoconus from getting worse.

We can treat many ocular surface and corneal conditions with prescription eye drops or medication. If you have advanced corneal disease, you may need a different treatment. Read more about the treatments here.
