UltrasoundThe technology used is a machine called a phacoemulsifier (phaco). The surgeon makes a micro-incision on the side of the cornea, no more than 3.0mm and inserts a tiny probe into the eye. This ‘phaco’ device emits ultrasound waves that break up the lens and the same probe removes the lens material by suction. Once removed the original lens is replaced by the lens implant which is folded, and inserted through the tiny incision. It then unfolds once in place in the eye. As there are no stitches, this means you can return home to relax the same day and look forward to a rapid and pain-free recovery.
Eye ExamA cataract is most often detected by your optometrist as part of your annual or biannual eye examination. However if you suspect a cataract, a visit to your optometrist will be able to confirm this. Should he or she find a cataract they will be able to monitor it and advise you about any future treatment. Not all cataracts need immediate treatment and same may not require surgery for years.
Cataract SurgeryPRELEX uses new technology in the form of the multi-focal lens or pseudo-accommodative lens, combined with a well proven surgical procedure. Every year in the UK alone almost a quarter of million people undergo cataract surgery, in which the lens is replaced with a lens implant using the same surgical techniques required for PRELEX. At Grange Eye Consultants your surgeon is highly skilled and trained in both the procedure itself and the new technology.
GlaucomaAs a precaution against the rare risk of glaucoma two micro holes are placed in the iris, either before surgery using a Yag laser (laser iridotomy), or at the time of surgery (surgical iridotomy). This is a painless procedure.
OphthalmologyRob Morris trained at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London graduating with Honours in his final examinations. Prior to pursuing his chosen career in ophthalmology he trained in General Medicine in London obtaining Membership of the Royal College of Physicians of London.
Macular DegenerationAge related macular degeneration takes either the “wet” or “dry” form and until recently both forms were largely untreatable. In the wet form of the disease, abnormal blood vessels develop which can leak fluid and blood and lead to permanent scarring but there are now treatments available which can control the disease and limit the damage if carried out in the early stages.
Laser Eye SurgeryThe service at Grange Eye Consultants is different to most laser eye clinics as ALL consultations and ALL stages of the treatment are performed by the Consultant Eye Surgeon himself. Your initial eye assessment will be with the eye surgeon who will perform your eye surgery, and he will then see you for your follow-up appointments.
Cataracts"Mr Morris suggested PRELEX for me and it sounded ideal. Now the cataracts are gone so the world is clean and clear again. I hadn't realised that it had become a rather grubby yellow. The curtains don't need washing again after all! Cataracts aside, I have never been able to see clearly without specs or contact lenses in my life - not even the top letters on the chart. Now I can see a stag's antlers two fields away AND read the map that got us there! I am the envy of all my middle-aged friends who have to keep getting out their reading specs. It has been 3 weeks but still some nights I almost get out of bed again because I think I've forgotten to take out my contact lenses! I can think of nothing that could be improved with your service and the results are WONDERFUL. Thank you."
Botox“Sixty-year-olds now are very active. They go sailing, play tennis, go to the gym, they have botox and face lifts and their attitude is very different. They don’t accept that being in your 50s and 60s means you’re old. These are the people who want their lives to be spectacle-free.”
