Going specs-free may be something you’ve only ever dreamed of. You’ve probably resigned yourself to always wearing them. However, getting rid of your glasses is within your power, and with the latest laser eye surgery and lens replacement choices available, this could soon become your reality.

Fed up with glasses or lenses?

Mr Ali Mearza FRCOphth is a renowned cornea, cataract and laser eye surgeon and over 230,000 people have viewed his surgical techniques on YouTube. 

A life where you didn’t need glasses would be amazing. You could see as soon as you woke up in the morning, playing sport would be so much easier. Imagine going swimming and being able to see the whole pool! You would even be able to read that menu in your favourite restaurant.

 

To achieve this, there are two main options available to you, refractive lens exchange or laser eye surgery.

Refractive lens exchange

 

Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is like doing cataract surgery but doing it early without the presence of a cataract. The natural lens is removed and a new customised lens is put in its place which corrects the spectacle prescription. Today there is an excellent range of sophisticated lens options which include:

  • Monofocal lenses (correct only distance or near);

  • Multifocal lenses (correct distance AND near);

  • Tri focal lenses (correct distance, middle and near vision); and

  • Toric lenses which also correct astigmatism.

Lens exchange surgery is becoming increasingly popular in the over 50s looking for freedom from their glasses.

Laser eye surgery

 

Laser eye surgery is now safer than ever and the technology is so advanced that lasers can be used to treat almost every eye prescription. Studies show that the vision is maintained for over 20 years following surgery.

 

About The Surgery

Whichever the best option is for you, the surgery is performed with local anaesthetic eye drops and takes around 10-20 minutes. Recovery is very quick so you don’t need to take too much time out of your busy schedule.

Choosing the best surgeon is key to amazing vision
