Cataracts care at LondonOC
LondonOC has invested heavily in world-class consultants and innovative equipment.
Cataracts are very common; it’s estimated around 2.5 million people aged over 65 have cataracts and it’s the main cause of impaired vision worldwide.
When cloudy patches appear in your vision, it prevents the light from extending to the back of your eyes which can cause impaired vision. 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. The fact is, if you're suffering from a cataract, then the lens itself has gone cloudy. Causes for cataracts can vary but you may be at higher risk if you're over 60, have trauma in the eye, diabetes and sometimes genetics can be a factor.
Signs and symptoms of Cataracts:
- Clouded, blurred or dim vision
- Difficulty with vision at night
- Heightened sensitivity to light and glare
- Seeing "halos" around lights
- Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription
- Fading or yellowing of colours
- Double vision in a single eye

I was nervous about the first operation, not knowing what to expect but I never felt any pain during or after surgery and the result was immediate. Mr Sharma and the theatre staff looked after me completely and the operation itself only lasted about 15 mins or so and the benefits are incalculable. The sense of freedom and relief in being able to see everything when I wake up and open my eyes, is amazing. I would absolutely recommend this procedure to anyone – it’s truly life changing – I would even call it miraculous. I would not hesitate to recommend LondonOC.SEE MORE CATARACT TESTIMONIALS
I recently had both cataract and glaucoma surgery on both eyes at the LondonOC and honestly found the whole experience very professional and caring, with excellent results. From my first initial consultation, Mr Sharma made me feel at ease with a calm, caring manner and very clear explanation of the whole procedure. The surgery was painless and very professional, followed by after care by Mr Sharma which was very supportive and reassuring. Without a doubt I would honestly recommend the LOC to any prospective patients.SEE MORE CATARACT TESTIMONIALS
