The Vision Practice specialises in cataract surgery and uses the most modern state of the art technologies and techniques. The eye contains a natural lens whose function is to focus light onto the retina. The lens also has the ability to adjust its focus, a property which is gradually lost after the age of about forty five. This explains why many of us start to need reading glasses after this age. With cataract, the lens gradually begins to become cloudy, a process which if left to develop will eventually result in a totally opaque lens. Most cataracts are age related, although they can be seen at any age. Virtually all of us will develop cataract in our lifetime. Globally, cataract is the most common cause of blindness.

In the early stages, cataract may cause glare with headlights and poor vision in certain lighting conditions. Cataracts will eventually progress to cause difficulties with all visual tasks including reading and driving. The lens has no ability to restore its clarity and this must therefore be achieved by surgery.

With The Vision Practice, surgery will be customised to meet your specific visual requirements. The lens will be removed by the most modern small incision technique and a lens implant will be chosen specifically to deliver the vision best suited to your needs. A variety of premium intraocular lenses will be considered, to offer correction of long sight, short sight and astigmatism. Lenses can also be chosen which will restore the ability of the eye to adjust its focus for near and far vision without glasses, an ability which is almost always lost when cataract develops. Through attention to detail, every step will be taken to minimise the risk of complications and ensure that your visual expectations are fully met after surgery.
