Cataract surgery is a straightforward procedure that can make a huge difference to your day to day life.
It’s the most common operation performed in the UK and, after the NHS, Optical Express carries out the highest number of cataract surgeries in the country.
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 will transform your life.
You don’t have to wait when you decide to have cataract surgery at Optical Express. 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 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.
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.
Immediately after your treatment is performed, you will be unable to drive. Ensure you arrange transport home beforehand. You should go home to rest after your treatment, returning for treatment in your second eye if required.
Read reviews from thousands of happy patients. To date, over 8,000 of our UK patients have rated us on leading consumer review site Trustpilot. That’s more than any other provider.
Cataract surgery is an incredibly effective treatment. While it can be a sizeable investment, it does bring long term, life-changing benefits. We offer a number of payment options and finance plans, making cataract surgery an option for everyone.
