Providing rapid access to cataract surgery

As the eye ages, the lens can become cloudy, affecting sight.  Surgery to remove the cloudy lens (cataract) is a simple procedure performed under local anaesthetic, during which the lens is emulsified using an ultrasonic handpiece and removed with a suction probe.  The lens is then replaced with an artificial one to restore vision.  Advanced lens implants, such as multifocal and accommodative lenses, that restore vision to the eyes without the need for glasses, are now available, and can also be used to treat presbyopia.

Offering the latest treatments for age-related macular degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a painless, but distressing, condition that causes disturbances to, and eventual loss of, central vision.  This occurs when the macula, a tiny area on the retina responsible for detail, colour and central vision, becomes damaged, usually due to ageing.  There are two types of AMD, wet AMD and dry AMD. 

The experienced ophthalmologists at Spire Healthcare are able to treat wet AMD with injections of specific drugs that inhibit its development and, in some cases, improve sight.  Until recently, however, treatment options for dry AMD were very limited and not very successful.  Spire Healthcare is now excited to be able to offer Intraocular Lens for Visually Impaired People (IOL VIP), a new treatment for dry AMD involving the insertion of two lenses into the eye to magnify and redirect images to a less damaged part of the macula.
