London Cataract Surgery Lenses
When it comes to cataract surgery, the choice of lens is crucially important. Daniel Gore will discuss with you which of the latest lenses is best for your unique needs.
A monofocal lens implant will correct your distance vision as clearly as possible. A toric monofocal lens can be implemented to also treat astigmatism. Monofocal lenses will help to improve intermediate and near vision, but glasses will likely be needed for comfortable reading.
Trifocal lenses can be used to target near, intermediate and distant vision. Four in five patients will not need glassess with trifocal lenses.
Extended Depth of Focus (EDoF) is the next generation technology in multifocal lens design, allowing you to see clearly at far and intermediate distances. They provide greater spectacle independence than monofocal lenses, with fewer visual side effects compared to trifocal lenses. You can read our cataract surgery page for more details on the lenses offered.
Does Cataract Surgery hurt?
The procedure is completely painless due to the use of anaesthetic drop to numb the eye. Furthermore sedation can also be given intravenously to help you relax during the operation if needs be. General anaesthetic is very rarely necessary.
Are there risks with Cataract Surgery? Cataract surgery is safe overall:
1 in 1000 patients may experience an infection or bleeding in the eye.
1 in 100 patients may require a second operation - this may be repositioning or
exchange of the lens, clearing lens fragments from the eye or repairing a retinal detachment.
● 1 in 5 patients may develop posterior capsule opacification (PCO) - a thickened membrane behind the new lens that can develop months or years after the operation. This can cause the vision to become blurred and may require a quick out-patient laser procedure (YAG laser capsulotomy) to restore clarity.
The surgeon’s experience and expertise is crucial in minimisng risks. Daniel Gore currently has a PCR (posterior capsular rupture) rate, the key index for safety in RLE & cataract surgery, of 0.62 %*, compared with the 1.5% national average and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists’ benchmark of 2.0%.
Are Cataract Lens Implants Permanent?
Cataract lens implants are designed to be a permanent solution. It is recommended that you keep getting regular health checks with your optician. Up to 1 in 5 patients may experience a deterioration in vision months or years after the surgery. This is posterior capsule opacification (PCO) and is normally treated successfully with a simple laser producer in the clinic. For more information you can see more FAQs on the cataract surgery page.
