Accommodating intraocular lenses for cataract surgery
Your local choices are between Cheltenham General, Tewkesbury and Tetbury.
Your GP will have access to all appropriate services across the country via the Choose and Book system and can advise you on which services best meet your needs.
Any threat to your ability to drive or read would make you eligible for surgery.
Cataract surgery has advanced to the point that we can now not only remove your cataract, but also correct your long sight, short sight or astigmatism all at the same time, significantly removing your need to wear spectacles.Essentially we leave the outer layer, the "capsule", of your own lens behind to act as a carrier bag into which we insert your new artificial lens.
