By Using implanted lenses it is now possible to treat patients with prescriptions from -20 dioptres to +10 dioptres with (+/-) 5 dioptres of astigmatism. It is also possible to treat patients who are unsuitable for laser treatment because their corneal thickness is considered to thin for Laser correction.
We do not consider this treatment to be suitable for people over the age of 60 with early cataracts, people with glaucoma, recurrent eye infections or other eye diseases.
In the case of Implant surgery there will need to be an initial consultation to enable the surgeon to determine your suitability, and also to to determine the strength of lenses required. These lenses are then made to your exact specifications and will be ready in about 2 days, at which time the operation can be carried out in our own surgical unit in France by one of only 15 Surgeons in the whole of France who are Qualified to perform these operations.
Treatment and after care
The operation will be performed in a full surgical theatre at one of our Clinics in France, and the whole procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. You will then stay overnight in the clinic. The following day you will be seen by the Surgeon, who then advise you on initial aftercare and dispense any medication required. Follow up and aftercare visits which may be required after one month will be arranged for you by the surgeon
