At Optimal Vision, we carry out femtosecond laser cataract surgery using a femtosecond laser without blades. This is the most recent advancement in cataract surgery which is more precise than the traditional style. We started using this technology in its early days, and only a limited number of clinics offer this treatment in the UK, including us.
It is the most recent advancement in cataract surgery.
Before now, traditional blades or scalpels were used to create a small opening and disintegrate the cataract. But presently, this has changed with the use of a unique type of laser - welcome to the new generation of cataract surgery. This laser which is called the femtosecond laser, is designed to precisely bore an opening on the right spot within the lens and cornea.
This highly advanced laser technology making waves in cataract surgery involves a precise and straightforward procedure of taking out cataract (a misty covering of the natural lens inside the eye) and implanting an artificial lens to treat poor eyesight. The outcome is just the same as with the traditional method of removing the cataract.
The procedure for this optical work is explained in three simple steps as follows:
Just like what's obtainable in traditional surgery where the cornea gets to be incised, the femtosecond laser cataract surgery employs a more stable method than the regular surgical knife - a special laser! Following its programming, the laser will bore the exact size and depth of the micro-opening in the cornea; a more precise solution.
After the cornea has been penetrated, the laser continues to break up the capsule bag which lies around the lens. The surgeon can now get to the cloudy lens protein responsible for cataract formation. In the traditional style of removing a cataract, at this point, a needle will be used. But here, a laser is used instead. This ensures that the outcome is accurate.
At last, the femtosecond laser is used to break up the cataract which the surgeon removes from the eye(s) after that.
The most significant benefit of this improved cataract surgery is its precision! Please take a look at some of its advantages over the traditional surgery.
Each eye to be operated on using this approach costs an additional £500.
Only at Optimal Vision and a few other eye centres in the UK will you find this latest innovative procedure in eye surgery. This implies that not every eye clinic out there provides this treatment.
Femtosecond laser cataract surgery is safe and works very well to correct bad eyesight, especially when professionals like us carry it out.
The procedure has the most significant advantage over other eye treatment methods since it is precise.
It allows newer premium lenses to be more effective and beneficial to patients.
Should you be interested in knowing more about femtosecond laser cataract surgery and how it can help your condition, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with us right away.
Not everyone may be able to get this treatment. Part of your appointment will involve examining your present eye condition to know if femtosecond laser is what you need.
Whatever the case, keep in mind that we provide one of the finest eye care in the UK, and will be glad to help you. Remember that your eyes need the best care available, and we provide just that.
I had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you
LASIK with Dr. Mani
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
