A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to ageing. Cataracts are very common in older people. We can treat this eye condition with lifestyle cataract surgery. Learn more…

Restore your vision and begin your life-changing journey towards improved eye health

Don’t let cloudy vision get in the way of your life. Instead, take the first step and discover which type of cataract surgery will give you the clear and crisp results you desire with a cataract assessment.

Refractive errors

Refractive error means that the shape of your eye does not bend light correctly, resulting in a blurred image. The main types of refractive errors are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (loss of near vision with age), and astigmatism.

We commonly treat refractive disorders using corrective lenses, such as eyeglasses or contact lenses. We can also use refractive surgery (such as LASIK) to correct some refractive disorders. In the absence of any other refractive error, we can sometimes treat presbyopia with over-the-counter reading glasses. Unfortunately, there is no way to slow down or reverse presbyopia. Learn more…

Vision restored!

After cataract surgery, patients across the country often tell us how much more youthful and engaged they feel once we’ve restored their vision. They can’t believe how much more detail and colour they are experiencing. Most mention that they wish they had done it sooner.

Corneal eye conditions

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), also referred to as Digital Eye Strain, describes a group of eye and vision-related problems that occur due to prolonged use of digital devices such as computers, tablets, e-readers and phones. The level of discomfort increases with the amount of digital screen use. We can treat this condition with lifestyle changes and glasses and contact lenses. Learn more…

Corneal dystrophies are rare traits inherited through genes that affect the cornea (front window of the eye). They appear later in life and cause a buildup of foreign material in one or more layers of your cornea. Over time, your vision may become cloudy or blurry. They often affect both corneas and affect men and women equally except for Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy (one of the types), which affects women more.

There are different methods of treatment. For example, when the vision is obscured, our doctors might offer laser surgery to polish the cornea’s surface or replace the diseased cornea with a new clear one. Learn more…

The cornea is the clear part in the front of the eye. A corneal ulcer is an open sore on the cornea. It’s a very serious condition and should be treated properly, or it may lead to permanent scarring of the cornea with either partial or complete blindness. This condition must be recognised and treated very carefully. In mild cases, intensive antibiotics and close follow up may be sufficient. Corneal ulcers should improve in 2 to 3 weeks. Severe cases might require hospital admission with intensive day and night treatment and may lead to emergency corneal transplantation if corneal melting (perforation of the eyeball) happens. Learn more…
Fuch’s corneal dystrophy is a hereditary eye disease with symptoms that often become noticeable after 50. The definitive treatment for this condition is to replace the diseased layer of endothelium and replace it with a new healthy graft from the corneal donor. Learn more…

Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory eye condition. The normally round dome-shaped cornea progressively thins, causing a cone-like bulge to develop. This results in significant visual impairment. Patients with keratoconus have a high degree of corneal astigmatism (asymmetric curvature). This cannot be corrected with glasses.

We can treat this eye condition with keratoconus treatment(cross-linking) and advanced keratoconus treatment (INTACs). In severe cases, you may need a corneal transplant. Learn more…

Limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) occurs when the number of LSCs falls below a critical level. When this happens and the cells can’t repopulate the corneal epithelium, the eye surface can become unstable. In cases where part of the stem cells is affected, conservative treatment can be attempted to save the rest of the stem cells. In cases where all the stem cells are dead (total limbal stem cell deficiency), treatment will be stem cell transplantation. Learn more…
When the cornea is damaged, it becomes more delicate than normal. This is because the epithelial cells take at least eight to twelve weeks to regenerate or repair and stick to the epithelial basement membrane.

Treatment depends on the severity of your condition. In mild conditions, we may prescribe prophylactic antibiotic eye drops to prevent infection. We may also prescribe a dilating drop to relax the iris muscle (coloured part of the eye) to help with the pain. Learn more…

General eye conditions

Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids. As a result, they become red, irritated and itchy and dandruff-like scales form on the eyelashes. It is a common eye disorder caused by either bacteria or a skin condition, such as dandruff of the scalp or rosacea. It affects people of all ages. Treatment depends on the type of blepharitis. Learn more…

Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem, particularly in older adults. We can treat this condition by adding tears, conserving tears, increasing tear production, treating the contributing eyelid or ocular surface inflammation, or recommending self-care. Learn more…
Eye allergies, also called “allergic conjunctivitis,” are common eye conditions. The first and best option is to avoid contact with substances that trigger your eye allergies. Learn more…
Occasionally, you may see small spots in your field of vision. These are commonly known as floaters. Most people sometimes see spots, and these can become more noticeable with age. Surgical removal of floaters is rare and suggested in only the most severe cases. Learn more…
Red eye is a common condition and is a sign of inflammation. It happens when the eyes become irritated and bloodshot. We will treat your red eye according to the cause.
