Types of Laser Eye Treatments and Cataract/ Lens Replacement

All treatment options comes with a fully transparent pricing structure and laser vision correction is available with interest-free financing, if required. Read on to find out more about the common eye treatments currently available from Mr Alex Day.

Laser Eye Surgery

As someone who has undergone laser vision correction himself, Mr Alex Day knows what it feels like to undergo this sort of treatment, something that informs his service. By skilfully reshaping the cornea, this particular treatment alters the focus of the eye, thereby enabling better vision, frequently without the need for glasses or contact lenses. Mr Alex Day is well-versed in both of the most up-to-date technologies with laser eye treatment, LASIK and PRK, and he will help you to decide which one is most appropriate in your case. This treatment method is suitable for correcting long and short-sightedness as well as astigmatism.

Cataract Surgery

A very effective treatment method which is extremely safe, laser cataract surgery is often the preferred way of dealing with cloudiness that builds up within the eye’s lens. Cataracts tend to develop slowly over time, so deciding when to treat them is always something of a personal matter, something that Mr Alex Day will take into account during your consultation. Bear in mind that he has almost two decades of experience delivering successful cataract surgeries. Indeed, he is a surgery trainer within the NHS in this field. Mr Alex Day also offers premium or refractive cataract surgery in addition to standard procedures.

Lens Replacement Surgery

A treatment option that is well worth considering if you would like to reduce your reliance on glasses, lens replacement treatments are advanced surgical procedures that tend to suit people in their middle age. Mr Alex Day is able to conduct high-class refractive lens replacement in one or both of your eyes to restore their vision to something closer to that which you might have typically enjoyed in your twenties. This treatment is ideal for people who have noticed their eyesight has become poorer in recent years but who have not yet gone on to develop cataracts. There are a number of replacement lens types on offer with this treatment and Mr Alex Day will advise you of the best options in your case.

YAG Laser Capsulotomy

Ideally suited to people who are looking for a quick treatment that will yield noticeable results, YAG laser capsulotomy requires nothing more than a local anaesthetic being administered. Patients will sit at a slit-lamp microscope, a device that means you can be treated without having to be concerned about avoiding blinking or moving too much. Because a typical YAG laser capsulotomy from Mr Alex Day will only take about five minutes to perform on each eye, improved vision will become a reality for most patients almost immediately.

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking

Also known as CXL or C3R, corneal collagen crosslinking treatments are available from Mr Alex Day to help strengthen your cornea, the transparent part of the eye that covers the front-facing part of it. This treatment method has been developed over the course of the last 15 or so years. It now provides eye surgeons with a highly effective method for dealing with a raft of cornea-related problems, such as keratoconus or corneal ectasia, for example.

PTK Laser Treatment For Recurrent Corneal

Recurrent corneal erosion syndrome (RCES) is a condition that can cause watery eyes and a high level of discomfort among patients. Mr Alex Day is able to treat this syndrome with a specialist phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) laser method that can be carried out within his daycare treatment offerings. Typically, this method for dealing with RCES will take ten minutes and be highly effective with most associated corneal dystrophies.
