Our aim is to make your eye care journey as clear and as hassle-free as possible

Finding the best eye treatment for your condition can be confusing. We’ve made it easy

We’ll guide you towards the best solution for your needs and lifestyle

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) treatment2021-12-01T12:48:38+00:00

For both wet and dry AMD, there are some medications and lifestyle changes that may help. These aim to prevent the eye condition worsening, or even occurring in the first place.

If you have wet AMD, we must treat you soon to avoid permanent damage to your sight. The AMD experts at Eye Institute use the most advanced medications and treatments for wet AMD.

Cataract surgery2021-12-01T12:56:59+00:00

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in your eye, which makes it more difficult for you to see. In a cataract operation, we replace the cloudy lens with an artificial lens. This lens gives you back the clear vision you once had. (You also have the option to remove your dependence on glasses – see refractive cataract surgery)

Corneal implants2021-12-01T12:57:26+00:00

Do you struggle to wear hard contact lenses for keratoconus? Corneal implants could help you see again.

Corneal transplant surgery2021-12-01T12:48:54+00:00

In a corneal transplant operation, the surgeon replaces all or part of the damaged cornea (the clear front surface of your eye) with healthy donor corneal tissue. We usually perform a corneal transplant (also called cornea grafting or keratoplasty) to help restore vision. We can also do it for comfort or appearance.

Custom surface PRK2021-12-01T12:44:30+00:00

We use this type of laser eye surgery to correct myopia (shortsightedness), hyperopia (longsightedness) and astigmatism. PRK was the first type of laser surgery for vision correction and the forerunner to LASIK. We sometimes use PRK as an alternative to LASIK for people who have very thin or flat corneas. It is also known as surface treatment or surface ablation.

Glaucoma treatment2021-12-01T12:53:48+00:00

While we cannot cure glaucoma, we can control it to slow or stop further damage to your eyes. This can prevent blindness. Treatments generally work by lowering the pressure inside the eye so that no further damage to the optic disc occurs.

Implantable contact lenses (ICL surgery)2021-11-29T11:45:25+00:00

Are your eyes unsuitable for LASIK? You could still enjoy clear vision without glasses, with implantable contact lenses.

Keratoconus treatment2021-12-01T12:53:28+00:00

Depending on the stage and severity of your condition, there are many treatments available. These include glasses, contacts, corneal implants, corneal transplants and corneal cross-linking.

LASIK laser blended vision2021-12-01T12:41:38+00:00

LASIK blended vision (monovision) is a laser eye surgery treatment where we correct one eye for close-up vision and the other for distance. This procedure can reduce your need for glasses.

LASIK2021-12-01T12:41:24+00:00

Due to its success, LASIK continues to be one of the most performed, elective surgeries in the world. LASIK is a 100% blade-free laser procedure. It can improve vision for people who have short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.

SMILE TM2021-12-01T12:47:23+00:00

SMILE™ is the most significant advancement in laser eye surgery in the last decade. The procedure is 100% blade-free. It allows rapid recovery and visual freedom for people who have short-sightedness and astigmatism.

YAG laser capsulotomy2021-12-01T12:47:32+00:00

A YAG laser capsulotomy is a fast, effective and painless treatment. We use it to restore clarity of vision caused by posterior capsule opacity – also known as ‘secondary cataracts’.

Medical terminology can be confusing, and the names of eye treatments are no exception

We break down our eye treatment services into different areas and explain what each one means under the headings below

Vitrectomy surgery2021-12-01T13:00:22+00:00

Vitreoretinal surgery is used to treat many conditions, including:

  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Epiretinal membrane
  • Floaters
  • Macular hole
  • Retinal detachment
  • Vitreous haemorrhage
Retinal vein occlusion treatment2021-12-01T12:43:05+00:00

There are many treatments for retinal vein occlusion. These include laser treatment, medication and surgery. The best treatment for you depends on the stage and severity of your eye condition. It’s important to get an expert diagnosis.

Retinal detachment/tear treatment2021-12-01T12:43:18+00:00

Every detached retina is different, and specialists will recommend the best operation for you.

For retinal tears, we may recommend laser or freezing treatment.

Refractive lens exchange2021-12-01T12:42:30+00:00

Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a popular vision correction procedure for people over the age of 50. RLE is also called lens replacement, PRELEX and premium IOLs. The surgeon replaces your eye’s clear natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). This lens achieves a sharper focus at variable distances, reducing the need for distance and reading glasses.

Refractive cataract surgery2021-12-01T12:42:41+00:00

Refractive cataract surgery is a procedure where we replace the cataractous lens in your eye with a new lens implant. It has the potential to improve your vision, leaving you with less or even no reliance on glasses and contact lenses.

Pterygium & pinguecula treatment2021-12-01T13:00:32+00:00

We can treat the irritation and redness caused by a pterygium or pinguecula with simple eye drops or surgery.

Eyelid surgery (Oculoplastic)2021-12-01T13:00:41+00:00

Rejuvenating eyelid surgery can make you look younger and more alert. This can help you feel better about yourself and look more youthful. Your eyelids also play an important role in the function of your eyes. It’s important to keep them working, as well as looking good. We provide many types of eyelid surgery and oculoplastic procedures.

Epiretinal membrane surgery2021-12-17T16:08:57+00:00

Not all epiretinal membranes need treatment, and its effect on your vision is mild, surgery may not be the right option.

When a surgical procedure is the best option, we call that procedure a vitrectomy.

Dry eyes & Sjögren’s syndrome treatment2021-12-01T13:01:05+00:00

There are many treatments for dry eyes, but their effectiveness depends on an accurate diagnosis. At Eye Institute, an experienced eye doctor will assess your symptoms and design a personalised treatment plan for you.

Diabetic retinopathy treatment2021-12-01T13:01:15+00:00

If you are diabetic, you’re at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. You should take immediate action to prevent it. See us for effective diabetic retinopathy treatments.
