Cataract Surgery

Thankfully, modern technology means that cataract surgery is safe, quick and provides excellent results in the vast majority of cases. The surgery is performed as a day-case, inpatient procedure generally under local anesthetic. The whole process of admission, surgery and discharge takes a few hours and visual recovery is often within hours.

Modern advances in intraocular lens technology means that patients can often have minimal to no dependency on glasses after surgery.

Cataract surgery is truly a life-changing procedure for many patients and surely one of the greatest advances in modern surgery.

Retina Surgery

There are three types of eye surgery performed by physicians for actual retinal detachment including: vitrectomy, scleral buckling, and pneumatic retinopexy. Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV or vitrectomy involving removal of the vitreous gel of the eye) is the most common surgery performed for a retinal detachment today.
