Daniel Gore MD FRCOphth CertLRS is an experienced corneal, cataract & laser refractive eye surgeon, and qualified to treat a wide range of conditions which affect your vision.
Treatments for short- and long-sightedness include LASIK, LASEK/TransPRK, Implantable Collamer Lenses and Refractive Lens Exchange using only the very latest monofocal, toric and multifocal lens implants. Mr Gore also specialises in interventions for keratoconus - which is a progressive degeneration of the cornea - including corneal cross-linking, ring implants and laser eye surgery.
The Implantable Collamer Lens (also known as Implantable Contact Lens) is a refractive lens implanted inside the eye to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism. The ICL is implanted through a key-hole incision in the eye behind the iris (the coloured part of the eye), and in front of the natural crystalline lens.
The ICL can correct a wide range of refractive errors between +10 (far-sightedness) and -18 (near-sightedness). Astigmatism of up to 6 dioptres can also be corrected. Your spectacle prescription should ideally have been stable for at least a year prior to surgery.
The ICL represents an alternative to other laser refractive surgeries LASIK or LASEK/TransPRK.
