Cataract surgery is necessary when a patient’s vision has started to become affected by cataract(s). A cataract is the gradual clouding of the crystalline lens inside the eye. Cataract Surgery involves the removal of the cloudy cataractous lens, and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens. If both eyes are affected, they are usually operated a few weeks apart.
Intravitreal injection of a drug into the eye is a very common and effective treatment option for a number of eye conditions, including wet age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusions and diabetic maculopathy. They are very effective for treating these conditions, particularly when the problem is caught early. They are also very effective at preventing further vision loss. Vision is known to improve in a significant proportion of patients.
Laser Vitreolysis / Laser Floater Treatment
Laser Floater Treatment (LFT) is a non- invasive procedure that is performed in rooms and can eliminate the visual disturbances that are caused by eye floaters, “cob webs”, or specs that float in your field of vision.
LFT involves the application of nano-second pulses of laser light to evaporate the eye floaters. The floater’s collagen and hyaluronin molecules are converted into a gas which is absorbed into the vitreous.
