Macula Intra-Ocular Lenses at LondonOC
We offer specialist consultations for anyone who would like to be assessed for these lens implants!
Specialist lens implantsIn this exciting new procedure, two small lenses are inserted into the eye. Together, these lenses act like a telescope, slightly magnifying the image and diverting it to a healthier part of the retina. This healthy retina takes over the role of the macula and can give the AMD patient significantly improved vision.
Macula Intraocular lenses
The potential improvement in vision can be tested using a special simulator. The simulator demonstrates the effect of the IOL system so patients can experience the possible improvement before the operation. Patients are helped to learn to use the new image with the help of some simple exercises.
The IOL systems can help patients with “dry” and established “wet” forms of AMD and also patients with other forms of macular disease including macular holes, myopic degeneration, and hereditary retinal diseases e.g. Stargardt’s, Best’s.
The procedure takes approximately just 30 minutes
There is no need for an overnight stay - this procedure is done as a day case.
The cost varies depending on the lens and procedure - please contact us or see our fee guide.
