Alcon Suite – Leading Cataracts Surgery in the UK
“I began to notice that when I read I couldn’t see the text as well as normal. . . it had got to the point that I couldn’t ignore it any more. It was there all the time and I couldn’t blink it away.”
Michael Pattemore, Lynda Bellingham’s husband
Do you suffer from cloudy, blurred or dim vision?
Then you may have cataracts.
Cataracts is a common condition affecting around 720,000 people every month, with half of over 65 year olds having cataracts in both eyes. They are cloudy patches that develop in the lens of the eye, causing blurred or misty vision as light is prevented from reaching the back of the eye. This debilitating illness, if left untreated, can lead to blindness.
Advanced Vision Care is the leading provider for private cataract treatment and clean lens exchange treatment in the UK. With cataracts, conventional surgery involves a small cut into the surface of the eye and then, using an ultrasound probe, a surgeon breaks up and removes your damaged lens. Such an operation, although very common, does come with risks including potential tears, infection and inflammation to your eye.
With our new cutting edge Alcon Suite, our world renowned surgeons can produce the most consistent, reliable, safe and error-free cataracts surgery ever. We use digital imagery to evaluate precisely where the cut should be made and automatically control your eye pressure during surgery, significantly reducing the risk of chronic swelling, soreness and increased pressure inside your eye afterwards. And that’s great for patients, as your cataracts treatment will be far less invasive, flawlessly accurate but with much faster recovery times.
Our new laser eye surgery clinic is the only place in the UK that is fully equipped with three of the most advanced pieces of refractive surgical equipment available all in one place:
The Verion Image Guided System
The Verion Image Guided System allows us to create a complete and detailed image of your eye. We use this to design a personal treatment plan specific to your eyes. It is so advanced that it enables us to analyse incisions and alignments in real time. With this tool, we can provide you with the most accurate treatment imaginable for cataract and clear lens exchange whilst minimising any risk of error.
Centurion Vision System
The Centurion Vision System is the most advanced phacoemulsification system in the world. It enables us to dynamically optimise each and every stage of your cataract treatment. In particular, it helps your surgeon to make highly complex and delicate incisions. And the advantages are clear: more accurate lens removal and an even smaller chance of errors.
The Luxor LX3 With Q-VUE
With the Luxor LX3 With Q-VUE, we can provide highly accurate visualisation during your lens exchange or cataract treatment.
Case Study: Michael Pattemore
“I began to notice that when I read I couldn’t see the text as well as normal… it had got to the point that I couldn’t ignore it any more. It was there all the time and I couldn’t blink it away.”
Michael Pattemore, Lynda Bellingham’s husband, discovered he had cataracts in both eyes after visiting one of our specialists. As part of his personal treatment plan we offered him the very latest and most advanced treatment available: our Alcon Clinic.
Although initially apprehensive, his surgery only took 30 mins to complete and he is delighted with the results:
“I noticed the difference immediately… The clouding had gone and I was able to throw away my glasses once more.”
