LENS SURGERY EXPLAINED

In these toggles below we explain what you need to know about lens surgery

Correcting your vision and achieving freedom from the inconvenience of glasses and contact lenses sometimes goes beyond the scope of laser eye surgery like LASIK or PRK. In other cases, laser eye surgery may not be sufficient to correct your severe prescription.

If you wear reading glasses or varifocals or are not a candidate for laser eye surgery, we may recommend you opt for a permanent alternative: lens surgery.

We can replace your natural lens with an intraocular lens implant (IOL). We can also place an implantable contact lens (ICL) inside your eye to help you see clearly and do all the things you love.

There are two types of lens surgery.

  1. Lens replacement removes your eye’s natural lens and replaces it with an artificial lens. This procedure improves the way light passes through the eye and focuses on the retina.
  2. Implantable Contact Lenses (ICLs) work just like removable contacts, except that they are surgically inserted into the eye.

Lens replacement surgery or refractive lens exchange (RLE) is virtually identical to cataract surgery, except the lens we replace is clear rather than cloudy. This procedure has a history that goes back to 1949 and is the most commonly performed elective surgery technique in the world.

We use lens replacement to safely and effectively fix:

  • Long-sightedness (hyperopia)
  • Short-sightedness (myopia)
  • Presbyopia (the age-related loss of near vision)

We can surgically insert contact lenses (ICLs) into the eye, where they cannot be seen or felt.

We use ICLs to fix:

  • Extreme short-sightedness (myopia)
  • Extreme long-sightedness (hyperopia)

Book a free assessment today. You can book online or call us to arrange an appointment. Assessments are free and suitable candidates all meet with highly sought-after lens surgeon, Dr. Matthew Russell, before they commit to eye surgery.

WHO CAN VISION CORRECTION HELP?

Find the vision correction option right for your age. We offer unique solutions for each stage of life

Tired of missing out because you need glasses and contact lenses to see clearly?

Do your glasses prevent you from looking your very best?

We know how it feels to have glasses and contact lenses get in the way of what you most want out of life. That’s why we offer a free assessment to help you make an informed choice about vision correction.

After you’ve had our assessment, you’ll enjoy the clarity and confidence you need to know – without a doubt – if vision correction is right for you.

Do your glasses make you look years older than you actually feel?

Life needn’t go downhill the second you hit some magic number. Why spend half a lifetime in reading glasses when a 20-minute treatment can get you out of them for good?

These days, people in their 40s and 50s are living as actively as their kids. That’s why we offer specific treatments for people whose eyes are changing as they age.

Book an assessment, and we’ll guide you towards the right treatment for you.

Seeking to ditch your lifetime of glasses and contact lenses for good?

Armed with varifocals, bifocals, reading specs, contact lenses and everything else – it can sometimes feel like you’re carrying around a pharmacy in your pockets or purse.

We appreciate how you’ve probably got better things to do than have to worry about your declining vision. Visit us for a free assessment, and you too can join the hundreds of thousands that experience spectacle-free vision from morning till night regardless of age.
