A world-leading centre for lens implant surgery
Cataracts and presbyopia are conditions associated with
the ageing of the eye, whereby the lens becomes cloudy and/or harder and
less elastic. The preferred treatment at the London Eye Hospital is to
remove the lens and replace it with a new one. This is usually
recommended instead of laser surgery for presbyopia as the eye keeps on
changing as it ages.
The London Eye Hospital is able to offer all the latest
developments in lens implantation for the treatment of cataracts and
presbyopia, some of them exclusive for the UK. These new, sophisticated
lenses offer a far better correction of vision than the older style
monofocal lens, which often required the use of complementary glasses:
