Cataract surgery is a straightforward procedure that can make a huge difference to your day to day life.
Cataracts are small, cloudy patches which form on your eye’s lens, making your vision blurry. Choose to have your cataract treatment with us, and you’ll discover that we have a range of options, using premium lenses, which can transform your life.
You don’t have to wait when you decide to have cataract surgery at Optical Express in Ireland. Once you’ve had your free consultation, you can decide on the date that’s most convenient for you, and then look forward to seeing the world around you much more clearly.
The most effective cataract surgery in Ireland is lens replacement. This involves the damaged lens being removed and replaced with a new synthetic lens to restore your vision. At Optical Express we also offer YAG treatment if additional corrections are required to restore your vision to the level achieved after your initial surgery.
Improve your sight with natural lens replacement. Using specially designed premium synthetic lenses, private cataract surgery can make your distance and near vision both clearer and sharper.
A secondary procedure known as YAG laser treatment is sometimes required to improve your vision. We will perform this treatment to restore your vision to the level achieved after your initial surgery.
The majority of Optical Express patients meet our suitability criteria. Here is some guidance to help you find out if you're suitable.
Cataract surgery replaces your cloudy natural lens with a new synthetic one, making your vision clearer and brighter. This premium lens can also help to correct long sightedness, short sightedness and reading vision. It's a simple procedure with a high success rate.
Our treatment support optometrist will record your vision with and without spectacles and perform an assessment of your eye health. Eye drops will be administered, so that your eye is comfortable during surgery.
Your surgeon will gently create a small opening on the surface of your eye to get access to your natural lens. The contents of the natural lens bag are carefully removed before the premium synthetic lens is put in place.
Make sure you arrange transportation home in advance of your surgery, as you won't be able to drive after your procedure has been completed. You should go home to rest after treatment, returning for your second cataract surgery if required.
Cataract surgery will correct your vision in a matter of minutes. After treatment, you will go on to experience clear vision well into the future, once again enjoying those day-to-day activities that make life so special.
