Eye surgeon in Nottingham. Cataract treatments.


The eye is like a camera, your lens focuses the light on the sensitive part of the eye to enable you to see clearly. When your lens becomes cloudy with age, trauma or disease that is called cataract. Your vision becomes increasingly blurred and may eventually be lost. You may become sensitive to light and unable to read in dim conditions or drive. Cataract surgery is a day case procedure done mostly under local anaesthesia. It involves the removal of your own cloudy lens and implantation of a plastic lens inside your own capsule which will restore your vision and can be tailored to treat any astigmatism as well.

Eye surgeon in Nottingham. Lens Capsular Opacification Treatment.

Lens Capsular Opacification

In some patients the lens capsule can become thickened a few months or years after cataract surgery. When this occurs, the vision will become fuzzy. YAG laser capsulotomy is a very simple and common office procedure which can be done to make an opening in the opaque capsule and restores vision immediately.

Eye surgeon in Nottingham. Refractive Lens Surgery Treatment.

Refractive Lens Surgery

There are a number of treatments available to correct long sighted and short-sighted vision and to get rid of glasses. This is completed either by putting a contact lens inside the eye in front of your own lens (Phakic implants), or replacing your own lens with a lens that corrects your short or long sightedness or both (Multifocal lens). The lens can be also custom made to correct any astigmatism (Toric lens).

Refractive Laser Surgery

Refractive laser surgery can reshape your cornea and remove scarring. Refractive laser surgery can correct long sightedness, short sightedness and astigmatism. It is crucial to do a thorough examination to check that refractive laser surgery is suitable for your eye. If you suffer from dry eye or have high errors or keratoconus, laser surgery may not be suitable for you and other alternative measures are available to correct your refractive error.

Eye surgeon in Nottingham. Corneal graft surgery treatment.

Corneal Surgery

The cornea is the front transparent part of the eyeballs that allows the light to enter the eye and together with your lens focus the light on the retina (the light sensitive receptor inside the eye) so it can be transmitted to your brain. The cornea can change shape or become opaque in many diseases such as keratoconus, Fuchs endothelial dystrophy or develop scars after infections. This can impact significantly on your vision. There are a number of corneal transplant procedures to replace only the diseased part of your cornea (DALK, DSAEK, DMEK. PDEK Procedures).

Eye surgeon in Nottingham. Ocular Surface Disease Treatments.

Ocular Surface Diseases

Severe dry eyes, especially those associated with systemic conditions, chronic inflammation and injury by trauma or chemicals can reduce your vision. Corneal transplants will not survive in the absence of a healthy ocular surface and good innervation. Stem cell transplants and ocular surface reconstruction can replenish your stem cells and restore vision.
