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

Retinal specialists knew that this would be on the cards at some point, but managing proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) with regular intravitreal injections is not standard practice in the UK. This is perhaps due to cost, service pressures, or the fear of non-attendance or service-initiated re-schedulings causing re-proliferation at the retina and subsequent complications such… Read More

Laser-assisted cataract surgery has emerged as an alternative to traditional (manual) cataract surgery in recent years, but several studies have failed to provide evidence of major advantages of the technology, while others have demonstrated that laser-assisted cataract surgery may actually increase complication rates. This recent, large, single-centre study examined visual and refractive outcomes on around… Read More

Phase 2 studies of brolucizumab show similar efficacy to aflibercept (Eylea) for wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and the drug is now advancing to Phase 3 trials. Wet AMD is becoming more prevalent and the higher the number of treatment options, the better. What is interesting is that the brolucizumab group in the study may… Read More

This meta-analysis of over 14,000 eyes, published in late 2016, found no significant differences in visual outcome between conventional cataract surgery and femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ophtha.2016.07.005

What Patients Say

What Patients Say

My vision is very much better for driving since the operation, thank you very much . So much so that my partner is not stamping anymore on her imaginary brake pedal and pointing!! Not had to go round a single roundabout twice to get a second look at the road sign!

I take this opportunity of thanking you for all your care throughout my cataract surgery and and subsequent laser capsulotomy. Before these procedures I was extremely apprehensive but your professionalism and patience in carefully explaining each step in detail was very reassuring and the results have been spectacular.

Having struggled with a dense cataract for some time, my initial appointment with Mr Shah gave me confidence in him right from the start, through the time taken to answer my questions and run through the steps ahead. His team undertaking the pre-op eye tests were very kind, explaining what they were doing, all very professional but with understanding of me being a slightly nervous patient! The cataract operation itself was painless, just a little pressure here and there but nothing of concern. I was kept well informed throughout each step of the process, constantly reassured by Mr Shah and the staff, who would regularly check I was feeling ok. Post op, the results were immediate and amazing. The world is a much brighter place, my sight both for office work and distance is great. No need to wear lenses or glasses now, after many years of needing both. It’s so liberating! My grateful thanks to Mr Shah and his team at the Little Grove and the hospital…a first class team!

I recently had successful cataract surgery under local anaesthetic, followed by laser capsulotomy on the left eye.

Having read what the procedures involved I have to admit that I was not looking forward to the experience. However, the Ophthalmic Surgeon, Mr Shah, was very professional, explaining in detail what was involved. Most reassuringly he said that the local anaesthetic made the procedure more or less painless. He was absolutely correct. Apart from a slight stinging from the initial eye drops, the procedures were completely painless.

Having had glasses for the last twenty-five years or so they now are no longer needed, apart from a slight magnification pair for reading. In summary, Mr Shah and his team were first class, the procedures very quick and completely painless, the result excellent!
