What is a cataract?
Cataract is the term used to describe clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. In a healthy eye, the cornea (the front of the eye) and the lens focus light onto the retina, producing an image that is interpreted by the brain as vision. When the lens becomes cloudy, this reduces the light transmitted to the retina, causing impaired vision.
How does cataract surgery work?
At the London Vision Clinic, we use state-of-the-art equipment to perform cataract surgery. Your surgery will be performed by our highly experienced Consultant Cataract Surgeon, using some of the latest technology in the field.

During phaco-emulsification, the natural lens is fragmented using ultrasound waves. The procedure is performed under topical and intraocular anaesthetic, to ensure that the patient does not feel any pain. First, the iris is dilated with drops, and a small incision is made in the cornea. Then, a small round opening is made in the front of the lens capsule to expose the lens matter. After the lens has been fragmented and the fragments have been removed, a replacement artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is inserted into the lens capsule.

How is the artificial lens (IOL) chosen?
IOL stands for intraocular lens (the artificial lens, which is used to replace the natural lens once it has been removed). If you currently wear glasses, your surgeon will choose an IOL based on your prescription, aiming to reduce or eliminate your dependence on them. At London Vision Clinic, we can offer the full range of commercially available IOLs. On top of this, we have the expertise necessary to choose the best lens for you, taking into account optimal safety and comfort, as well as aiming for the best possible refractive outcome
How much does it cost?
Our advanced technology and surgical expertise means that we are unable to offer discount fees. Instead, we keep our prices simple, clear and fair, and include all drops and aftercare for 6 months post surgery.

Cataract surgery at the London Vision Clinic costs £3400 per eye. (If, at your surgeon’s recommendation, you require a premium lens, this is an additional £400). Laser enhancements are charged at £1500.
