No two eyes are exactly the same, so our first task is to make sure we understand the finest details of your eyes. A crucial part of this process is using the best technology available to us. We create individual eye treatment plans tailored precisely to each of your eyes.
Is Cataract Surgery safe?
The vast majority of all cataract surgeries are completed each year in Australia without serious complications. Although this type of surgery is very safe, you should always discuss the risks of surgery with your eye surgeon.
Is fasting necessary before Eye Surgery?
Your Surgeon will give you specific instructions regarding fasting before your procedure. However, in most cases you will need to fast for the proposed anaesthetic to be effective (no food or drink for 6 hours prior to the surgery is the usual requirement).
Will I go blind if I have Glaucoma?
The good news is that if you are not blind at this time, there is a very good chance that you will never be blind from glaucoma. It is true that glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world after cataract. It does present a real threat to the vision of anyone who develops it. However, scientific studies all over the world have shown that the vast majority of patients who follow the standard care instructions and preventative measures will retain their sight.
