A cataract is the name given to the natural lens inside the eye when it has become cloudy or less clear in appearance. A common misconception is that the cataract is like a "film" or "skin" that has grown over the eye, and this simply is not true. In actual fact, if you are suffering from a cataract, then the lens itself has gone cloudy and this can occur due to age, trauma, diabetes, or genetics to name a few causes.
You can chose to have cataract treatment at any stage of development- gone are the days where you had to wait for the cataract to be ‘ripe. In fact people with spectacles are asking for surgery earlier, even before the cataract develops, so they too can benefit from permanent, full range vision- all without specs.
We have access to all the latest intraocular lenses (IOL) available today, and considering this lens will remain in your eye for the rest of your life, we have a selection of only the finest at the London Ophthalmology Centre, including:

The optical principles are the same as the standard Mflex multifocal intraocular lens, but the lens is thinner and designed to rest easily in between the iris and the previously implanted monofocal lens.
