Cataract Surgery – Your safety is important

Cataract surgery involves removal of the opacified crystalline lens using ultrasound energy and replacing it with a clear, transparent personalised intraocular lens.

After performing high number of cataract operations, I developed special interest in surgical management of cataract in patients with underlying blinding conditions such as glaucoma, age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinal and macular eye conditions. Occasionally, I use combined surgical procedures to achieve best visual outcomes. Not only I perform cataract surgery but also I ensure my patients restore their vision safely and effectively.

It is a safe procedure in my hands, my posterior capsule rupture complication rate for cataract surgery is well within the national average range (as measured by the National Ophthalmology Database Audit Report).

There are many ways of removing cataracts and I can discuss which is the best option for you to achieve best possible visual outcome.

Posterior capsular opacification (PCO):

Your vision can become cloudy again after the cataract surgery, this may happen in approximately 30% of patients undergoing cataract procedures. The hazy or cloudy membrane (PCO) may appear just behind the intraocular lens implant causing visual impairment, in occasions it is referred as a “secondary cataract”.

YAG laser is used to clean the opacity formed being the intraocular lens, this procedure is done under the topical anaesthesia, it is fast, painless and very effective in restoring the sight.

Pterygium is a degeneration of the conjunctiva, the whitish membrane that covers the surface of the eye. The main causes of this type of degeneration are UV rays from the sun and the wind.

There are many ways of performing pterygium surgery. I provide suture free pterygium surgery with conjunctival autograft using fibrin glue. The suture free technique allows patients to experience less postoperative symptoms such as pain and discomfort. It is a safe technique in my hands, this innovative procedure has less recurrence rate and patients are happy with cosmetic and visual outcome.

When eyedrops are no longer sufficient to treat your glaucoma, I can carry out standard glaucoma surgery, known as a Trabeculectomy or offer you mini glaucoma shunt procedure (Ex-Press) or minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (i-Stent). Where I can, I restore vision or halt the progression of chronic optic disc condition with medical and/or surgical treatments. In some occasions, patients may require non-invasive glaucoma procedure such as laser therapy.

I can advise you if you need glaucoma laser therapy (laser peripheral iridotomy, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), etc). SLT can successfully reduce intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma (POAG) and ocular hypertension. SLT is considered as a first line treatment in POAG eliminating challenges related to antiglaucomatous medication. I have particular interest in performing glaucoma laser treatment, this procedure is safe and pain free in my hands.

Treatment: Intravitreal injections

I regularly treat and deliver therapies (intravitreal injections, retinal laser) for retinal conditions such as Age Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Maculopathy, Retinal Vein Occlusions, Myopic Maculopathy and other conditions of the retina such as retinal tears/holes.

It is a simple procedure, the purpose of which is to inject chemical substance directly into the eyeball (vitreous cavity). Different types of intravitreal injections are available to treat variety of retinal conditions.

We integrate the latest advanced proven techniques and medications in treatment of retinal/macular conditions to stabilise and/or improve vision of patients. I personally carry out intravitreal injections (Avastin®, Lucentis®, Eylea®, Jetrea®, Ozurdex®, Iluvien®, Triamcinolone) and/or laser treatments and ensure treatment is pain-free and safe.
