RLE / CLE & Cataracts Technology
Advanced Vision care uses the very latest, cutting edge Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) and Cataract technology. This includes:
The Alcon Refractive Suite
AVC is at the forefront of Cataract and Clear Lens Exchange treatments, treating patients in our Alcon Refractive Suite, which is the safest and most advanced Cataract/Clear Lens Exchange suite in the UK.
The VERION Image Guided System
This is used to capture a digital reference image of the eye during the initial assessment which is used to create a surgical plan. This equipment is also used throughout the treatment allowing the surgeon to see all incisions and alignments in real time, improving accuracy and minimising errors especially whilst correcting an astigmatism.
The Centurion Vision System
AVC is the first clinic in the UK to possess this equipment and it is the newest phacoemulsification system available (this breaks up and removes the natural lens). It allows for smaller incisions and is able to optimise every phase of the lens removal. The device also controls the intra-ocular pressure throughout the treatment and enhances the control of the surgeon, consequently improving the patient’s outcome and accelerating the recovery process.
The Lux-OR LX3 with Q-VUE Ophthalmic Microscope
Designed to provide superior visualisation throughout the surgical procedure, this microscope is able to expand the visual field with a highly stable, 6x greater red reflex zone, providing excellent visual detail with superior visualisation of the retina.
