Eye treatments A-Z

Cataract Surgery is now so sophisticated that it is usually carried out with just local anaesthetic drops.

The technology involved is such that the cataractous lens can be liquefied and removed through an opening no bigger than 1.8mm. Better still, the procedure usually takes less than 10 minutes, meaning that recovery is rapid and the risks are very low. In fact, it is riskier to live with a cataract than to undergo cataract surgery at My iClinic London.

If you have glaucoma, we can treat most cases with drops. The drops work by lowering the pressure of the eye back to the target pressure for that eye. If drops fail to achieve the target pressure, we may have to consider surgery. The surgery involves passing a very fine fibre around the drainage canal and tying it so that the canal drains more effectively. This operation is called a canaloplasty, and we can perform it from inside or outside the eye.

We use Laser Eye Surgery to reshape the cornea at the front of the eye, altering the focus.

The algorithm in the software precisely predicts the new focus. Almost all of our patients achieve normal vision and are free to live independent of glasses and contact lenses.

The Myopia Control Clinic is for children with myopia.

The current World Health Organisation prediction is that by 2050, half of the world’s population will be myopic.

Research shows that young children who use special eye drop instilled once a day have a significant reduction in the growth of their eyes. We offer Atropine 0.01% drops, which are safe and effective.

Additionally, My-iClinic offers a full range of medical services and lifestyle practices to help combat myopia in children at any age.

Paediatric eye care  is for infants and young children who have problems with their vision.

We use state-of-the-art technology to assess the health of your child’s eyes.

We specialise in treating children with squints (including surgical correction where appropriate) and have experience working with children who have autism, dyslexia, and other learning difficulties.

How does Macular Degeneration / AMD treatment work?

A group of drugs known as anti-vegF can reverse and improve wet macular degeneration. Currently, there are three different brands of these drugs, two of which are licensed; Lucentis and Eylea. Because they have been through the regulatory process, they are far more expensive.

Another drug of the same group known as Avastin is equally effective and safe. However, it has not been through the regulatory process and therefore is much cheaper.

In addition to a prescription of contacts and glasses, we may suggest Cross-linking.

Corneal cross-linking is where we use special eye drops and ultraviolet A (UVA) light to help the damaged tissue in your cornea grow stronger. This process stops the bulge on the eye from getting worse as it adds special bonds that work like support beams to help the cornea stay stable.

If you do have or develop this lifelong condition, it is important to understand the nature of it so that you can learn to embrace it. Having a lack of knowledge incites fear, and so you should do your research and ask us any questions you have.

If you have an emergency such as a sudden change in your vision or pain in or around your eye, then you should call us.

Here’s what Londoners say after eye treatment

We are proud to hear we make a meaningful difference to your life

Mr Bolger suggested having cataract surgery on both eyes on the same day and whilst I had concerns, I decided to go ahead. The day after I was able to remove the eye pads and I had perfect vision. I have told many people that it was the best thing I have ever spent my money on. I have needed spectacles or contact lenses since I was 9 years old and now have 20/20 vision with no assistance from spectacles. I would highly recommend the My-iClinic.

Mrs Penelope Carrozza

Double cataract removal in September 2018. The total experience from initial consultation to operation was most efficient. The result so far has been exactly as described in the brochure, I've never seen so well. I had glasses from just over 1 year old till now, (80+), what a difference!

Michael Turvey

Just discharged after having monovision cataract surgery in both eyes I am delighted with the outcome. I can see both near and far and have been able to dispense with my contact lenses and glasses. I have been well looked after from my first contact. Mr Bolger was very professional and reassuring and I felt at all times that I was in good hands. I cannot fault the whole experience including the charges, which having researched various alternatives, proved to be very reasonable.

I had high confidence in the team working at My-iClinic due to their attentive and thorough end-to-end service, from the reception desk to the operation theatre. I have recommended the practice already to multiple friends, family members and colleagues. (And my eyesight is better than I even hoped for!)

Ames Ward

Absolutely fantastic. I was very nervous having my laser treatment for narrow angle glaucoma. The Consultant was wonderful, caring and very understanding. She talked me through the procedure and was extremely patient. Definitely recommend My-iClinic.
