Implantable contact lenses are similar to the flexible implants used in modern cataract surgery, but they are implanted in the eye to correct vision without removing the natural lens. This treatment is commonly used to treat high glasses prescriptions and astigmatism.
Laser eye surgery (laser sight correction) involves precise reshaping of the cornea to very accurately correct short sight (myopia), long sight (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At Moorfields Private we offer LASIK and surface laser treatments (PRK, LASEK, and TransPRK).
LASIK is the most commonly performed type of laser eye surgery. The procedure involves reshaping the tissue beneath a corneal flap to correct short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism. The surgery takes between 10-15 minutes for both eyes to be treated, and is pain-free.
Lens replacement surgery, also known as refractive lens exchange, is a common procedure which involves replacing the natural lens in the eye with a synthetic one. This new intraocular lens corrects short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism, reducing the need for contact lenses and glasses. This procedure can also improve vision for those suffering from cataracts.
