at London Vision Clinic
Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness around the world. This simple fact can make not only their occurrence but also their treatment, a scary thing. Fortunately, cataracts are a treatable condition, as we can attest to here at London Vision Clinic.
In fact, cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgical procedure worldwide, with an estimated 330,000 cases performed each year in England alone. But with so many providers to consider, choosing a clinic you can trust can be a difficult decision. It is important to take your time and investigate your options thoroughly so you can have peace of mind that you are receiving the best possible care.
Unlike many clinics, our cataract patients have full access to their surgeon, starting with a pre-operative consultation to discuss their personalised treatment plan. This also gives both parties the ideal opportunity to address any concerns they have before heading into surgery. What’s more, through a series of post-operative meetings, your surgeon is able to assess each stage of your recovery to ensure everything is going as smoothly as possible.
With access to the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art technology and the expertise of world-renowned surgeons, London Vision Clinic aims to provide the best possible care and outcome for each and every patient.
We prioritise a highly personalised experience to meet the patients’ needs every step of the way.

Superior Lens Availability and State-of-the-Art Technology
Cataract Surgery involves replacing the eyes’ natural lenses with artificial ones – known as intraocular lenses. As everyone’s eyes are different, one size definitely does not fit all in this scenario. At London Vision Clinic, we are able to offer the full range of commercially available intraocular lenses to ensure the perfect fit for every patient.
Our surgeons and ophthalmologists have the expertise and experience to choose the best lens for you, based on optimising safety and comfort as well as the best refractive outcome.
Furthermore, our technology, which includes the Alcon Centurion and Verion systems, has been carefully selected to ensure that your Cataract Surgery is performed as safely and accurately as possible.
The Verion Image-Guided System is an advanced surgical planning, imaging and guidance technology designed to provide greater accuracy and efficiency during Cataract Surgery. With this technology, your surgeon is able to capture high-resolution, diagnostic reference images of your eyes and helps to determine an optimised surgical plan. This enables surgeons to implement the surgical plan using a tracking overlay and to see all incisions and alignments in real-time.
The most commonly applied procedure for the removal of cataracts is known as phacoemulsification (phaco). The Centurion Vision System represents the next generation in phaco technology by providing surgeons with superior cataract removal capabilities. The Centurion Vision System optimises every moment of the cataract surgery, automatically and continuously adapting to the changing conditions within the eye.
London Vision Clinic is uniquely well-placed to offer high-quality treatment for a wide variety of eye conditions and refractive errors. If you are considering cataract surgery but would also like to say “goodbye” to your glasses or contact lenses, our expert team of clinic coordinators, ophthalmologists, and surgeons are on hand to provide you with the advice and expertise you need.
We are proud to be a centre of excellence in laser refractive surgery in addition to offering the best refractive outcome for your Cataract Surgery. In addition to our lens selection expertise, we are committed to reducing – or even eliminating – your reliance on glasses and contacts. Our ability to perform laser refractive surgery as a refining tool – including PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision for the treatment of presbyopia – enables us to offer the best visual outcomes in many cataract surgery patients.
At London Vision Clinic, we are proud to be able to offer a very high staff-to-patient service. This enables us to offer the most thorough and personalised service to each and every patient. We spend as much time as possible with you before your surgery to ensure that you feel safe, comfortable and informed about your procedure. Our team understands that it is only natural to be nervous about your cataract surgery and are on hand at any time, before, during, and after your treatment to help you manage this anxiety.
Since London Vision Clinic opened its doors way back in 2002, we have meticulously established a reputation as a world-class clinic. This is not only down to our outstanding Laser Eye Surgery results but also thanks to our unwavering dedication to providing the very best care for our patients.
In the media, we have been called “the leading safety experts” in Laser Eye Surgery and we remain dedicated to contributing peer-reviewed research to further advance refractive surgery. To this end, we have published a peer-reviewed paper on the importance of standardisation and consistency, demonstrating the many steps we take to ensure that every surgery is performed to the best and safest possible standards.
We are completely open and transparent with our patients, and you can rest assured that the exceptional standards we are famous for will be reflected in your cataract surgery experience. But don’t just take our word for it. Why not read some of our patient reviews?
