New Lenses for macular degeneration
Canthopexy / Asian eye lid surgery
Eye Bag Removal / Blepharoplasty
If you long to be free from wearing glasses or contact lenses then lens replacement surgery may be the answer. At QASMC we have access to a selection of the most advanced lenses. Your Consultant Ophthalmologist will advise you on which are best, taking into account a variety of factors. Following the procedure you will benefit from high definition, spectacle free vision.
When the eye’s natural lens becomes cloudy and difficult to see through, this is known as a cataract. This can happen due to one of several reasons; age, genetics, diabetes or even trauma. The procedure to correct cataracts involves the old clouded lens being surgically removed and then replaced by a new artificial lens. Cataract surgery is highly effective, relatively quick and very safe.
2% of the UK population have Glaucoma. Glaucoma is dangerous as it is an eye disease which can go undetected right up to the point at which your eyes have suffered permanent damage. This is why it is vital to visit an Ophthalmologist for regular eye assessments. Most cases of Glaucoma is caused by too much pressure within the eye which results in the optical nerve being squeezed. Although, pressure is not always a factor. Innovative Glaucoma detection and treatment is available at Harley Street Specialist Hospital utilising the latest technology. A range of treatments can be discussed ranging from simple eye drops for less severe cases, laser, or even surgery.
Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD) eventually leads to loss of sight, and is the most common cause of blindness in the developed world, with between 4-6 million sufferers in the UK and 560 million worldwide. Advanced stages of AMD can result in severe loss of sight in the central part of vision. This is often referred to as a central vision “blind spot.” This blind spot is different than the visual disturbances experienced with cataracts (clouding of the eye’s lens) and is not correctable by cataract surgery or spectacles. Side vision, or peripheral vision, is not affected by AMD, but is too low resolution to make up for lost central vision. Macular Degeneration can often be effectively treated through ophthalmic surgery. The team of Consultant Ophthalmologists at Harley Street Specialist Hospital will advise you on the best procedures and lenses to help restore your sight.
Canthopexy, also referred to as Asian eye lid surgery is a type of Blepharoplasty. Asian eye lid surgery enables a fold to be created on the upper eyelid. This achieves a rounder and larger appearance to the eyes. This outpatient procedure is fairly simple and involves removing a small amount of excess skin, fat pads and skin tissue.”
Inevitably skin loses elasticity as we age. This is often most noticeable around the sensitive skin of the eyes. Eye-bags can appear and the eye area may become puffy and wrinkled, giving the eyes a tired appearance. In the upper eyelid, excess skin produces a hooded effect, this can also obscure vision, Blepharoplasty is usually straightforward and can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, in order to rejuvenate the appearance of the area around the eyes.
The surgeon will remove any excess skin and fatty tissue from around the eyes and stretch the skin to smooth out any lines and wrinkles and reduce the “hooded” effect above the eyes before stitching the skin back into place. This procedure is often performed alone but many people also choose to combine it with a face lift or brow lift.
Even if the type of treatment you require is not listed above, we may still be able to assist so please contact us to discuss.

I underwent nerve decompression surgery. Prior to the surgery I was very sceptical about it. To my amazement the operation went without a hitch and the only pain I encountered was the administration of the anaesthetic. I experienced great relief of pain straight after the operation, and could not believe the difference the operation had made. The size of the scar was also smaller than expected.Anonymous
