This month, a review paper has been published in the European Journal of Ophthalmology authored by specialists at multiple central London teaching hospitals. This paper has systematically looked at the published evidence base to date for laser-assisted cataract surgery. Upon reviewing 121 suitable publications, the authors have concluded that “the current clinical outcomes of femtosecond… 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

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

What Patients Say

What Patients Say

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.

Thank you so much for all that you have done for me this year. Restoring my sight has been more than I could have hoped for. Thank you for your ongoing care.
