Glaucoma Surgery
Procedure: Lens Exchange with MFlex lens implants, March 09. Result: 6/6 N5 unaided : 20/20 sight in both eyes! "What made the London OC my choice for lens exchange surgery is that they provide a totally unique, highly professional and exceptional standard of service. From the minute I arrived for my first consultative appointment to my final post-op visit, my consultant, Mr Sharma and his team, made me feel as though my eyes and the welfare of my sight was just as incredibly important to him as it is to me. When you think about the possibility of not having sight – you can understand why this is the vital ingredient any patient must have, before they can confidently say they want to go ahead and have the surgery they really need.

The knowledge that Mr Sharma is a consultant surgeon who holds a consultant position in a London teaching Hospital and performs world class ophthalmic operations also gave me the confidence that the London OC look after the welfare of its patients with the latest technologies, bespoke lenses and techniques.

The staff at the London OC is second to none. They helped me feel relaxed and did not ask any awkward questions. Mr Sharma’s highly professional attitude paired with his down to earth method of relaying his knowledge and sense of humour, made me feel at ease about my decision to consider surgery and gave me the confidence when deciding to go ahead.

What raises the bar of excellence here is that Mr Sharma made me feel totally at ease at surgery and following the operation. He provided one to one telephone support on the days following the surgery, and examined the status of the completed procedure on a regular basis. He was always available to answer any question, however trivial, and most importantly never made me feel as though they were trivial. That means a lot.

All in all coming to the London OC has been the best decision I ever made. I have been incredibly fortunate to find such a dedicated consultant surgeon and his team to my disposal. Thank you to all the staff who have looked after me!"

Me acerqué con miedo, pues nunca había estado en un quirófano y sólo tengo dos ojos y la idea de que eran muy importantes para mi vida normal. Pero una vez en la Clínica, todo fué amabilidad y las más extensas explicaciones de la operación, lo que devino en seguridad personal. El resultado me tiene privada. Veo de lejos y de cerca, incluso el ordenador y el periódico. Me olvidé de las gafas y mi vida ha dado un salto cualitativo hacia adelante.

I had a lot of extra work and trouble because of my name. in my country your first name comes first and your family name is written in two places I did not exist. In the clinic I was sitting from opening time to lunch time When i told them they paid my lunch. Otherwise everything was good. When it was discovered I had cataract the price jumped from 1600 € to 4900€ , but I am happy, I can see well and after I had a few days on the beach. before flying back home.All recommended.

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma surgery is a laser eye surgery treatment designed to correct a serious vision problem, known as glaucoma. The surgery can also involve conventional methods like making an incision in the eye to reduce intraocular pressure.

General health of the eye, type and severity of the glaucoma are factors that determine the method of treatment, either laser or conventional surgery. Glaucoma is an eye disease where the optic nerve is damaged and may lead to blindness if untreated.

Glaucoma is marked by too much fluid pressure that is built up inside the eye, called intraocular pressure which can damage the optic nerve and eventually cause loss of vision. Without effective treatment, glaucoma may progress into permanent blindness in a few years.

The advent of medical advances and modern technology made glaucoma surgery a simple, common eye care procedure. Using laser surgery, the goal of this treatment is to maintain the heath of the optic nerve, reduce the pressure in the eyes, or, in some instances, relive pain caused by glaucoma.

The most common type of glaucoma is primary open-angle glaucoma, which has no noticeable signs or symptoms except gradual vision loss. The earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the better chances of preventing optic nerve damage and glaucoma-related vision loss.

Another type of glaucoma eye disease is acute angle-closure glaucoma, which has more noticeable symptoms, including severe eye pain, nausea, sudden onset of visual disturbance, blurred vision, halos around lights and reddening of the eye.

Despite how common glaucoma surgery is in the US and Europe; it is considered an elective, cosmetic treatment that is usually not covered by medical insurance schemes.

The cost of glaucoma surgery in the US is one of the highest eye care treatments. For a crucial procedure like glaucoma surgery, time is of the essence. Some patients in Europe with deteriorated glaucoma condition can’t afford to wait for their scheduled surgery.

Traveling for glaucoma surgery abroad is a very effective solution to long waiting periods in Europe and high cost of surgery in the US.

Cost of Glaucoma Surgery

The cost of glaucoma surgery comes down to a variety of factors. The geographic location where the surgery is performed is the most deciding factor that determines the overall cost of the eye surgery.
By choosing your surgery destination, you will be able to calculate the collective cost of the glaucoma surgery, since you will find out the eye surgeon’s fees, the facility’s charges or any additional expenses that will be included. Eye care medical destinations are a quality, easy-on-the-wallet solution to vision-related problems.
