eye exam


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,

Your initial consultation

The initial consultation can take up to two hours and includes a sight test and ocular scans, followed by detailed examination & discussion of your treatment options.
Preparing for your appointment
In order for us to accurately measure your eyes, it is extremely important that contact lenses are removed in advance of your appointment: 2 weeks for rigid lenses and 1 week for soft lenses. Even soft contact lenses can severely affect our scanners' ability to accurately measure the shape of your eye.

If you are able, please bring any previous glasses and contact lens prescriptions.
Sight test and scans
One of Mr Gore's team will take detailed measurements of your eyes, including sight tests, pressure checks, wavefront scans and high resolution images of your corneal shape (tomography).
Examination and discussion
Following a detailed examination of your eyes, Mr Gore will discuss your options for vision correction, the different types of laser or lens implantation surgeries and the risks associated with vision correction surgery. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions. Not everyone is suitable for vision correction surgery, and sometimes Mr Gore will confirm that spectacles or contact lenses may be the only safe option. Pupil-dilating eye drops (mydriatics) may be required - these can blur your vision for a few hours.

Your vision after eye drops

We often use eye drops to help us thoroughly examine the health of back of the eyes. These can make your vision blurred for a few hours and you should in particular avoid driving to and from your appointment.

Our Procedures

All treatments are uniquely tailored to each individual using leading technology and the absolute greatest care and skill. Mr Gore will talk everything through with you in detail to ascertain the most effective treatment. Learn more about our various types of treatment below, or get in touch to book a consultation.

Laser Eye Surgery


Laser eye surgery, or vision correction, reshapes the cornea to change the focusing of the eye and improve vision without glasses or contact lenses. Short/near-sightedness (myopia), Long/far-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism can all be treated with this simple corrective procedure. There are three types of laser vision correction:

  • Keyhole (SMILE)
  • Flap-based (LASIK)
  • Surface (LASEK/TransPRK)

Results for these types of surgery are the same, but the most appropriate procedure will depend on the examination results and the individual needs of the patient. Mr Gore will determine the best treatment for you during your consultation.

ICL Implants

Implantable Contact Lens / Phakic implants

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.

PhotoTherapeutic Keratectomy


PhotoTherapeutic Keratectomy is a type of laser eye surgery used for a range of problems affecting the superficial layers of the cornea. PTK uses the same excimer laser as in LASIK, LASEK or TransPRK. Instead of reshaping the cornea to correct your vision, PTK can remove scars, opacities or treats painful recurrent erosions.

If you already wear glasses or contact lenses and need to have a therapeutic laser treatment you could correct your vision simultaneously. As an alternative to PTK, PhotoRefractive Keratectomy (or LASEK) can, in most cases, correct short-sightedness (including astigmatism). For recurrent erosion symptoms, freshening up the top base layer is achieved during the same treatment. This additional treatment can be done with no additional risk.

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) / Cataract Surgery

Advanced monofocal, toric and multifocal lenses
The lens inside your eye may need to be replaced if it becomes cloudy (a cataract), or if your eyes are not suitable for laser vision correction or ICL. In these cases, a replacement lens is implanted.

A standard (monofocal) lens implant will correct your distance vision as clearly as possible. Multifocal lenses also help with near vision, although you may still require reading glasses for some tasks.
