Accuvision cataract surgery has become a popular alternative to the NHS, thanks to the accessibility and variety of advanced lenses that are available. The NHS, while offering high standard surgery only provide one type of lens suited to improving vision over distance; this means there is still a requirement for glasses of contact lenses. Accuvision can provide lenses that can improve vision over all distances and even improve pre- cataract sight.

Surgeon

The surgery with Accuvision is performed to the highest standards by one of the most experienced surgeons in his field, Mr. Chad Rostron. Mr Rostron is a fully trained ophthalmologist specialising in all forms of eye surgery and treatments including LASIK eye surgery.  He will also be present at the consultation to talk through the aspects of surgery at give you answer to all of your questions.

The chance to meet and build up a relationship with the surgeon that performs the operation is something that appeals to many people. NHS cataract surgery is carried by a team of professionals which can often lead to you being operated on by someone different from the person that carried out the consultation. Accuvision cataract surgery aims to make patients feel as comfortable as possible and by getting to know the surgeon prior to the operation eases people’s fears.

Operation

The operation itself will take around 20 minutes and will be done using the phacoemulsification technique which is favoured for its benefits in recovery and effectiveness.  The operation will be done under local anaesthetic so that no pain is felt at all during the operation.

The high quality, intraocular lens which is used can be chosen by the patient during the consultation stage and can be suited to the exact requirements of the patient. During the recovery period, patients are generally able to leave the hospital after just a few hours and continue to recover at home, any accompanying medication that is required will also be given.
