The initial consultation involves a detailed assessment of your vision, your eye and general health and your visual requirements. I will advise whether you are likely to benefit from surgery, what choice of lens implant may be appropriate, and what your expectations should be. I will also discuss the risks of surgery as well as the benefits and anaesthetic options. Dilating drops will be used, which may blur your vision for a couple of hours. There will be plenty of time to answer any questions you may have, and, of course, there is no obligation to proceed.
An additional assessment will be required prior to your operation to measure the length and shape of your eye with advanced biometry techniques. This allows me to determine the power of lens implant required for the surgery.
