"I will never forget the moment when I removed the eye bandage the morning following the surgery to my right eye. I started to focus, and within seconds could see that the trees were so green, the flowers so bright and vivid. 
The same joy was repeated a few weeks later following surgery to my left eye. Euphoric!!
I can now see clearly without glasses for the first time in over 30 years. I'm still smiling 3 months later when I look out of the window!"

Lens Surgery For Macular Degeneration

Font Size

I'm over the moon.  I feel very lucky to have found such a fabulous surgeon.  Great improvement in vision. I'm thrilled.

EG suffers from Age Related Macular Degeneration and had cataract surgery with an Eyemax Intraocular Lens

A glimmer of hope for you or your relative with AMD

macular degeneration simulationMacular Degeneration is a leading cause of blindness in the western world. The image on the right illustrates a scene as it might be viewed by a person with End-Stage age-related macular degeneration.

New technologies are being developed to try and restore vision which is the holy grail. 

Theoretically if we can increase the amount of light getting onto the macula you should be able to see better but if you already have a markedly damaged macula it cannot hope to detect the light hitting it.

New lenses have been developed to try and help by magnifying the image up.

I have brought three lenses to the East Midlands which were previously only available in big units in London. 

Both the Implantable Miniature Telescope and the SML lens magnify the image you receive and can get you reading again.  The new EyeMax IOL spreads the light energy out across the whole macula in the hope of using more healthy macula to see rather than focusing the light on the centre which may not be healthy.

A telephoto ocular prosthesis. The central optical portion is a micro-lens system that renders a magnified image on the retina.

CentraSight’s implantable telescope technology reduces the impact of the central vision blind spot due to End-Stage AMD. The telescope implant projects the objects the patient is looking at onto the healthy area of the light-sensing retina not degenerated by the disease.

The tiny telescope is implanted in the place of the eye’s lens to help improve vision in patients with End-Stage AMD, the leading cause of blindness.






These are not cures.  These are not suitable for everyone.  They are expensive and outcomes will vary between patients.  Some patients will achieve a massive improvement but most will have a modest improvement.

Patients will have an assessment from a specially trained optometrist to assess suitability and only those suitable will be put forward for potential surgery.
