Having an operation on your eyes can be a scary prospect. However, there is no reason to be afraid, as LondonOC has invested heavily in the most highly skilled staff and world class equipment. This means that we can offer you the most cutting edge cataract surgery in London. Using the highest quality lenses available on the market today, our skilled surgeons will restore your full vision with very little fuss or discomfort. Our skilled ophthalmic surgeons use only the best techniques, such as topical anaesthesia, keeping you comfortable without the need for injections.Cataract surgery is now the safest surgery possible, with the risk of a serious problem being less than 0.1%.
Microincision Phaco Surgery with theLatest Microincision Femto Laser
We utilise the latest keyhole surgery (without stitches) and remove the cataract using state of the art, ultrasound machines. We now offer the latest micro incision Femto – LASER assisted lens surgery where appropriate.
Our Ultrasonic machines are the latest dual pump machines which give the surgeon unsurpassed control during the procedure. Phaco-burst technology reduces the total amount of ultrasonic energy delivered to the eye during surgery (phaco-emulsification). These improvements lower the risk of thermal or physical injury to the cornea and incision site. Our machines use the latest methods, including bimanual phaco-emulsification, where the incision site is merely 1.8mm wide (standard is 4.1mm). Again, our phaco hand pieces use the most advanced bimanual technology for new hyper "cool" techniques, further reducing heat during the procedure.
This all means safer surgery and quicker healing with better results.
99% of patients notice the vision has improved in the days after surgery. 90% of patients do not need spectacles for near and far vision if a multifocal lens implant was selected for the surgery. Since our inception we have had no cases of infection (0%) and work hard to maintain this .
At LondonOC, not only do we offer the best in technology, but we combine this with the personal care from your surgeon. The surgeon will see you for the consultation, any pre op measurements, and of course the surgery. You will have direct contact details, and your surgeon will guide you through the post-operative period, as required. All our surgeons are lead consultant specialists who teach surgery in London’s teaching hospitals, so you know you are in the safest of hands. We do not use any technicians or opticians in your medical care – only 100% care delivered by consultant surgeons.
