When your vision becomes impaired, you may need surgery to replace the lens. Not all people with cataracts need surgery. For some people, changing their glasses or using a magnifying glass may improve their vision sufficiently.
If you do need surgery, cataract surgery is usually performed as day surgery under local anaesthetic. By using the latest technology, we are able to offer bladeless cataract surgery. In this procedure, the incisions for the surgery are made by laser rather than a surgical blade, which makes the surgery more accurate.
