Refractive Lens Surgery

    Tired of having to wear glasses and/or contact lenses?
    Perhaps contact lenses leave your eyes sore and uncomfortable and bifocals or varifocals are inconvenient?
    Are you aged 50 or over?
    Refractive lens surgery may be the solution you've been looking for.

Traditional Laser vision correction surgery such as LASIK has a number of drawbacks:

    Although the distance vision is usually excellent, near vision glasses will be needed from age 45 onwards due to aging
    The distance vision is likely to deteriorate later as cataract develops, even in the early stages, meaning that glasses may be needed again
    Almost everyone will need cataract surgery later as they get older but after laser surgery the lens calculations are less accurate meaning glasses may well be needed after cataract surgery

Advantages to refractive lens surgery:

    Same operation as a cataract operation. 
    Quick, painless
    Tried and tested
    Safe
    Kills 2 birds with 1 stone
    Cataract treatment will not need treatment later on
    Both near and distance vision can be corrected at the same time with multifocal and toric lenses - 90-95% of patients report being spectacle independent the majority of the time
