Cataracts can develop as people age when the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy. Cataracts can impair the vision and impact on everyday life. The good news is that cataract surgery is very successful and the modern surgery is now quick and painless.
Surgery is the only effective way of removing the cloudy lens which is replaced with a new artificial intraocular lens. This treatment not only greatly improves vision, but can treat underlying focussing problems, such as short or long sightedness. Prior to your surgery, your surgeon will discuss your need for glasses. Multiple measurements will be performed to plan the most appropriate intraocular lens for your eye and your visual needs. There are many choices available at the time of cataract surgery which include monofocal, multifocal and toric intraocular lenses.

A referral letter is not required, however, it would be beneficial if you can retrieve one.
Referrals can be made by your GP or optician.
