Traditional diffractive multifocal lens implants are sometimes associated with unacceptably high levels of optical aberrations, haloes in the vision, and glare. Some authorities would actually not recommend diffractive multifocal implants in individuals needing to drive at night regularly, because of the potential for glare from oncoming headlights. Accordingly the lens technology companies developed Extended Depth… Read More

With UK optometrists purchasing OCT scanners at pace, early and asymptomatic epiretinal membrane (ERM) is increasingly referred into ophthalmology, as it is technically an abnormal finding. This retrospective study looked at just over 400 patients with ERM and analysed outcomes of those who underwent immediate surgery, compared to those who were observed. The study results… Read More

This large American claims database based retrospective cohort study examined over 23,000 patients receiving antiVEGF injections for diabetic macular swelling and reassuringly found no increased risk of stroke, heart attack or major bleeding events, when compared with patients receiving macular laser therapy for the same condition: However this study is based on US patients… Read More

Earlier this year, a randomised controlled clinical trial was published from the group at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, directly comparing outcomes of conventional cataract surgery with laser-assisted cataract surgery. With 200 eyes in each trial group, the study found virtually no meaningful differences in outcome for the two groups in terms of level of… Read More

Here is an interesting write-up of a study from Israel that was presented at this year’s American Academy annual meeting. Of the 226 patients (mean age 73 years) referred, 40% of the OCT scans were classified as abnormal, with macular degeneration, epiretinal membrane, and vitreomacular traction all represented. Apparently, some 18 of these eyes had… Read More

What Patients Say

What Patients Say

Earlier this year I was referred to Mr Anish Shah by my long-term Optician in relation to cataracts
which she felt could be ready for removal. On meeting Mr Shah, he reviewed my situation and confirmed that my eyesight should benefit greatly from their removal. Consequently, appointments were made and they were removed in two stages. My right eye was operated on first and I can honestly say it was a virtually painless experience. When the time came, some days later, to remove the patch and open my eye I was uncertain what to expect but when I did it the word that came to mind was “miracle!”. Everything was so bright and clear in comparison to my other eye, so much so that I was advised to wear sunglasses for a few days. Some short time later, the other eye was operated on with the same amazing results. Thank you so much Mr Shah for your professional care and advice in relation to the foregoing.

Thank you so much for the care you have given me recently for my detached retina. Your professionalism, caring attitude & expertise is exceptional. You made me feel feel very confident at such a frightening time for me. I cannot praise you highly enough. Thank you with immense gratitude.

What a brilliant facility we have here on the island. My husband had cataracts in both of his eyes and rather than wait for treatment through our health service, he went private through Evolution Eye Care. Mr Shah and his team were all friendly and the treatment he received was first class. His procedure was carried out at the General Hospital in Jersey by Mr Shah and a team of professional clinicians. Why anyone would want to go further afield to be treated elsewhere when we have the expertise and facilities on the island is beyond me. A huge thank you to Mr Shah and his team, my husband’s eye sight is completely restored and we have no hesitation in recommending this excellent Jersey facility.

A huge thank you to you for my cataract operation you did just over six weeks ago. I still can’t believe I don’t need my contact lens in, especially after wearing it for nearly forty years!

I would also like to say how lucky we are to have someone with your amazing expertise as a Consultant and head of eye clinic here in Jersey which I’m truly grateful for.
