The service is led by highly skilled consultant ophthalmic surgeons supported by a dedicated nursing team in a stunning new facility. The hospital is fully accredited by the Healthcare Commission and offers tailored treatments centred on the patient’s needs.
The benefits of Laser eye surgery are exciting and for suitable patients the improvement in vision offers a transformation in lifestyle.
At the Academy patient care comes first. A comprehensive consultation using special diagnostic instrumentation helps the Surgeon advise each patient which treatment is best. All the risks and benefits are explained. The hospital offers the consultation free of charge.
LASIK/LASEK laser eye surgery
Lasik and Lasek laser eye treatments have become established as the most popular forms of refractive eye surgery. In both cases the front of the eye, the cornea, is carefully “sculptured” using a special laser.
LASIK/LASEK Wavefront treatments
Wavefront treatments use advanced diagnostic technology to help correct tiny imperfections or aberrations on the cornea. The treatment optimises the results of laser eye treatment.
Apart from laser eye treatments the Academy also provides other refractive solutions including cataract removal, lens exchange and lens replacement. A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens which lies behind the iris and pupil. The lens works much like a camera lens, focussing light onto the back of the eye or retina. The lens also adjusts the eye’s focus. Through ageing cataracts may develop and require removal.
