NHS Cataract Treatment
The Optegra clinic in Colindale welcomes NHS patients requiring cataract surgery.
The NHS waiting times for cataract surgery have grown over the past few years, with some patients having to wait a year to access treatment. By getting referred to our Colindale clinic, NHS cataract patients can access our high-tech cataract treatment in as little as six weeks.
Our partnership with the NHS means your GP or optician can refer you to our clinic for your NHS cataract surgery.
The Cataract Procedure
Our NHS cataract patients can access our standard cataract surgery procedure. The treatment is totally safe and is one of the most common surgical procedures carried out in the world today. During your cataract treatment the natural lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic intraocular lens (IOL). The new IOL lens closely simulates the natural eye lens, allowing the person to see clearly without the cataract. For those who want to eliminate the need for reading glasses or contact lenses, a more advanced type of lens replacement surgery may be recommended as an option.
