Leading eye surgeons offer the full suite of ophthalmic surgical procedures in modern, fully equipped specialised facilities. Supported by a team of well trained and experienced and compassionate staff our results speak for themselves.
Cataract surgery is performed when the normally clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy and therefore affects the quality of vision. This is usually an age-related problem but other conditions like diabetes or even trauma to the eye can also cause cataract to form.
Corneal transplants are one of medicine’s most successful transplant operations. The procedure involves removing the cornea from a donor eye and transplanting it to a recipient eye that has a defective cornea.
Surgery involves either laser treatment or the microsurgical creation of a fistula to reduce the intraocular pressure. Surgery can help lower pressure when medication alone is not sufficient. It does not, however, reverse visual loss.
LASIK / LASER SURGERY
Laser surgery is an advance in modern eye surgery that has revolutionized the correction of focusing errors such as short-sightedness (myopia), astigmatism, and long sightedness (hyperopia). These focusing errors have until recently required correction by the wearing of glasses or contact lenses.
Surgery is specialised surgery for abnormalities of the eyelids and their surrounding tissues. Our Oculoplastic surgeons are all trained ophthalmologists (eye doctors) who understand how eyelid surgery can affect the comfort of the eye and the clarity of vision.
The term pterygium refers to a fleshy thickening of the conjunctiva which has grown onto the surface of the cornea, most often seen on the nasal side of the eye. This is in response to surface irritation of the eye by UV exposure and other irritants.
The hospital offers a medical and surgical retina service, which includes a diagnostic and treatment service. Our service includes digital angiography, photography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), ultrasonography, laser facilities, and medical treatment of macular disease with drugs e.g Lucentis, Avastin and streroids.
The retina is the light sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that captures the light before sending the visual message to the brain. This part of the eye can become detached (retinal detachment) resulting in loss of vision. Fortunately, there are several highly successful operations to repair retinal detachments.
Strabismus/Squint surgery aims to re-align the eyes relative to one another, by repositioning the attachment of the muscles of the eye, which either ‘weakens’ or ‘strengthens’ the muscle. The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia but there is no need to spend the night in hospital.
