CUTTING EDGE CATARACT SURGERY TECHNOLOGY
Lumivision specialises in the diagnosis and management of cataracts. We will provide an honest opinion on whether you would benefit from surgery now, whether you should wait or whether you should have surgery at all.
What is Cataract ?
A cataract is clouding of the lens inside the eye. It usually develops slowly and people experience a gradual change in vision. A cataract may cause blurry vision, problems with glare and haloes (seen as rings around lights), and a change in your colour vision.
The most common cause for cataracts are age-related, but certain conditions, medications, eye injuries and other eye problems may also contribute to cataract development. Babies can also be born with cataracts. This is called congenital cataract.
When the cataract progresses to a point where it is interfering with daily activities and normal lifestyle, cataract surgery can be considered. If the cataract is not removed, your vision may stay the same, or it may get worse.

Assessment with Mr Jain
Get a thorough examination of your eye (with dilation) to assess for cataracts and other co-existing conditions which may be affecting your vision such as macular degeneration or retinopathy. This consultation will help you in deciding whether cataract surgery is required or not, assess the complexity of the surgery, and decide lens options.
Cost £2000 per eye (includes all aftercare)
Monofocal Lens will correct your vision usually for distance, so reading glasses will still be necessary. This is the most common type of cataract surgery performed worldwide.
Cost £3000 per eye
Multifocal Lens will aim to correct for distance and reading however there is a compromise and you may find more glare and haloes than with a monofocal.
The purpose of the operation is to replace the cloudy lens (cataract) with an implant inside your eye. This implant should last for the rest of your life.
At Lumivision only the most experienced surgeon will perform your cataract surgery, with the highest quality equipment and facilities at their disposal. As with all of our procedures we ensure that you are seen in clinic and operated on by the same surgeon to provide continuity of care, something that is rare in the NHS these days.
The majority of our surgery is under local anaesthetic, so you will be awake during the operation. Cataract surgery is a painless procedure; we either numb the eye with drops or a numbing injection around the eye. All potential anaesthetic options will be discussed with you before your surgery.
Patients will have improved vision within a couple of days after surgery and this will continue to further improve over the following weeks.
Some people with co-existing medical conditions such as diabetes may benefit from certain adaptations to their treatment either before or after the surgery. At Lumivision we have an expert surgeon who specializes in operating on diabetic patients and can individualize their treatment plan.
Cataract surgery is a life changing experience and we understand that patients will want to discuss their options so we offer detailed consultations and give patients a time to process the information.
