Sulcoflex MULTI focal lens implants

The Sulcoflex Multifocal lens can provide reading vision without glasses for patients that have had standard cataract surgery in the past and currently depend on glasses to be able to read.
The lens is designed for placement behind the iris of eyes that have previously received a standard monofocal lens. The optical principles are the same as the standard multifocal intraocular lens, but the lens is thinner and designed to rest easily in between the iris and the previously implanted monofocal lens.

• New multifocal injectable lenses are now available! 

These lenses are custom matched for your eyes so you can see near and far without ever needing your spectacles again!

Laser Study 
The most sophisticated and latest lasers are being used to treat high pressure in the eyes. This is allowing patients to do away with some, if not all of their eye drops.

Currently the study is in progress at a major teaching hospital in London, and for further information you can contact the study coordinator, our consultant ophthalmologist, Mr. V. Sharma.

Corneal thickness
Recent studies have shown that eye pressure machines previously thought of as extremely accurate can be completely unreliable if the thickness of the cornea has not been taken into account. 

All patients at LondonOC will have a corneal thickness measurement recorded so we can accurately assess pressure. The measurement is painlessly taken by the latest such device – a handheld Pachymeter!

Nerve Fibre analysis
Never before possible, here at LondonOC we have the latest research and diagnostic tools, so we can monitor your health with even greater confidence. We can accurately show you how the nerves at the back of your eye are working and if any damage has occurred.
