Superior lens choice and state-of-the-art technology

At the London Vision Clinic, we can offer the full range of commercially available Intraocular Lenses. 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.

Our technology, which includes the Alcon Centurion and Verion systems, has been chosen to ensure that your cataract surgery is as safe and as precise as possible.

The Verion Image Guided System is advanced surgical planning, imaging and guidance technology designed to provide greater accuracy and efficiency during cataract surgery. It allows the surgeon to capture a high-resolution, diagnostic reference image of the patient’s eye pre-operatively, quickly determining an optimised surgical plan that enables surgeons to see all incisions and alignments in real-time, and integrate the surgical plan into the operating room utilising a tracking overlay.

The most common and widely applied surgical procedure for the removal of cataracts is phacoemulsification (phaco), the Centurion Vision System represents the next generation in phaco technology, and provides surgeons with superior cataract removal capabilities. The Centurion Vision System is the only intelligent phaco technology that optimises every moment of the cataract procedure. It automatically and continuously adapts to changing conditions within the eye, providing more consistent IOP (intraocular pressure) and greater anterior chamber stability during each step.

Industry leaders in laser refractive surgery
If you’re considering cataract surgery, you might also be looking forward to getting rid of your glasses or contact lenses. Our experience as a centre of excellence in laser refractive surgery means that the London Vision Clinic is uniquely well placed to give you expert advice about the refractive outcome of cataract surgery.

With our expertly informed lens choices, we are committed to reducing or eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses, wherever possible. We can also offer laser refractive surgery as a refining tool. Building on our success with PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, we even have the skills and technology to correct for presbyopia (ageing eyes) in many cataract surgery patients.

A truly personal service
Compared to many other clinics, we have a very high staff to patient ratio. Your pre-operative and post-operative appointments might be longer and more in-depth than you are expecting, but this is because we are committed to spending every minute necessary to ensure that you feel safe, comfortable and informed. We recognise that the vast majority of patients will be nervous about cataract surgery, and we are experts in managing this anxiety.
A clinic you can trust
Since London Vision Clinic opened its doors in 2002, we have built up a reputation as a world-class clinic – not only because of our outstanding laser eye surgery results but also regarding our patient care. We have been referred to in the media as “the leading safety experts” in laser eye surgery, and 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?
