Cataract remains the most common cause of preventable blindness in the world. Surgical techniques have advanced in recent years to enable visual rehabilitation by the same day or within the next few days without the need for stitches or a large incision.
 

Consultation will be provided in the following areas:

Our advanced equipment incorporates reliable Swiss technology to enable
no stitch small incision phacoemulsification to be performed under Zeiss operating microscopy with simultaneous refractive correction.

The majority of cataract procedures may be safely and comfortably provided under topical (eye drop) anaesthesia. Hence patients will not be required to receive eye injections or to undergo general anaesthesia unless specially requested.

Cataract surgery may be carried out as a day procedure in the comfortable operating suite located on the first floor of the WYCEC. WYCEC is now proud to introduce 'Micro-Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS)' with its innovative 2.2mm wound size offering our patients an option for safer surgery with shorter post-operative recovery

The intraocular lenses available at WYCEC cater to a wide range of individual financial and specific ocular needs. We generally provide foldable monofocal (Acrysof) and multifocal (Restor) lenses imported from overseas and marketed by the well known Alcon corporation (link to www.alcon.com)
