Your questions answered: Discover the life-changing benefits of premium cataract surgery

Quickly discover how this revolutionary eye treatment can give you visual freedom in moments
  • A cataract does not need to be “ripe” or “ready” for surgery, as some people may think.
  • Cataract surgery is appropriate for anyone that has symptoms of cataract, has discussed the benefits and risks of cataract removal with their surgeon, and feels that treatment is the right decision for them.
  • This decision is very individual as symptoms that are felt to be minor by one person may be extremely troublesome to another person. This is the reason that a detailed discussion with an experienced surgeon is an essential step in deciding whether or not to proceed with surgery.
Phacoemulsification cataract surgery is a modern method of cataract removal and replacement with a biocompatible lens implant inside the eye. The cloudy crystalline lens is called the cataract inside the eye, positioned behind the clear window of the eye (cornea) and the coloured part of your eye (iris).

Advantages

  • Over 90% of patients achieve excellent (20/25 or better) distance vision without glasses.
  • Premium cataract surgery is very successful, with very high patient satisfaction and extremely low complication rates.
  • The procedure typically takes less than half an hour and does not require an overnight stay.
  • Vision is usually improved the day after surgery.
  • Recovery is typically short and uneventful.
  • The lens implants are permanent and ordinarily do not need to be replaced.
  • Sharmina Khan corrects everyone’s astigmatism when performing premium cataract surgery

Disadvantages

  • Compared to traditional cataract surgery, the adaptation period is longer after surgery and it may take more time for your vision to stabilise.
  • Phacoemulsification cataract surgery is the most common procedure carried out in the United Kingdom and has a good safety profile and outcomes.
  • Sharmina Khan will discuss individual risks and benefits when you attend for a consultation.

Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS)

  • Femtosecond laser cataract surgery works using ultrafast pulses in the range of 10-15 per second. This allows a greater deal of precision, and is less invasive than other methods, resulting in reduced strain on the surrounding tissue and a quicker recovery.
  • Standard phacoemulsification cataract surgery is the most common method of cataract removal where a small incision (2.2-2.4mm) is made in the cornea and a probe is inserted to emulsify the cataractous/clear crystalline lens.
  • This is a day case procedure carried out under local anaesthetic and sedation. Due to her experience Sharmina Khan usually employs topical (drops) anaesthesia and only subtenons (injection around the eye) if the case is higher risk. Sedation allows for a more relaxed patient experience.
  • The cataract is accessed through a 2.2mm incision made through the cornea using a pen-like phaco-probe.
  • This probe vibrates at ultrasonic frequency. It softens (emulsifies) the cataract and breaks it into small manageable pieces which are then aspirated (vacuumed out) along fluid filled plastic tubing away from the eye.
  • A foldable implant is inserted into the eye like a taco and this opens up for ideal lens placement.
  • This is a refractive opportunity to reduce your spectacle dependence or make you almost spectacle independent and achieve sharper focus by employing either blended mini-monovision or trifocals.
After cataract surgery, patients can usually go home within a few hours. In the days that follow, there may be some discomfort within the first week. Visual recovery is experienced the next day and will continue to improve in the first week and thereafter. Full recovery can take up to 12 weeks.
