Typically, your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon will not perform the lens replacement procedure on both eyes at the same time. Each eye will require a separate procedure, although they can both generally be done within a few weeks of each other.
Yes, but it may restrict the range of lenses available to you. Your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon will discuss all your options at a free consultation.
Booking your consultation is simple. You can call our freephone number on 0800 358 0825 or book online here. Alternatively you could attend one of our open evenings with a consultant surgeon and have all your questions answered and take a tour of the hospital.
Your sight should return a few hours after the operation although it may be blurry for the first couple of days. Vision normally improves quickly over the next week or two, reaching its optimum at 4-6 weeks.
You are only suitable for lens replacement surgery if you have presbyopia, which usually develops in those over 50 years of age. You can find out more about whether lens replacement surgery is for you here or at a free consultation with a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, who will conduct a detailed eye assessment.
Yes, if you already have a cataract or the beginnings of one it will be removed during the procedure. Lens replacement surgery also prevents you from ever needing cataract surgery.
Lens replacement surgery is a sophisticated development of cataract surgery, one of the world’s most frequently performed surgical procedure. The natural lens of the eye is permanently replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) and typically takes 20 minutes per eye.
Providing you do not work in a dusty or smoky environment (which we recommend avoiding for around two weeks after lens replacement surgery), you should be able to go back to work after three days, or whenever your eye feels comfortable again.
The lens used in the procedure can focus at different distances, which could give you clearer close up vision but not all patients will be able to stop wearing glasses or contact lenses for all tasks.
The lens replacement surgery procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and is painless. Afterwards, you may experience itching and mild discomfort; this is normal and should disappear in just one or two days.
