Cataract surgery

I have been asked what happens during cataract surgery. Immediately behind the pupil in our eye is a living lens. which is clear when we are born and becomes cloudy a we age. At a certain level of cloudiness it is called a cataract and a denser level of cloudiness it needs to be removed. Under local anaesthetic the surgeon makes a very small cut in the eye, removes the old lens and replaces it with a new,clear plastic one. Typically after about six weeks you would return to your optometrist to check everything has settled down well and to get new glasses.

It’a a modern miracle!

New year… new eating

We can’t emphasise the importance of healthy eating to promote good eyesight. Lots of different coloured fruit and vegetables contain different nutrients to help build healthy eyes. Try and maintain a sensible weight too, and take exercise out of doors in the fresh air. It’s good for your mental health too!
