Your eyes need different treatments as you age

Maintaining excellent vision is crucial for a good life. Many people used to think that world-class eye surgery was only available in London. This is no longer true. Get the right eye treatment options for your current age and lifestyle – right here in Yorkshire.

UNDER AGE 40

In your twenties or thirties you might get fed up with your glasses and contact lenses. Many different laser eye surgery options are a great solution for younger eyes. Before the age of 40 the lens inside your eye is soft and flexible. This means we can treat a person and have them end up with perfect vision in the distance, while at the same time their eyes are relaxed and will be able to “pull focus” for near vision.

AGES 40-60

After 40, we all wind up needing reading glasses which can be frustrating and feel like premature ageing. At this age, the lens inside the eye becomes less flexible. You lose the ability to “pull focus” for near objects. This is called presbyopia or “short-arm syndrome” and creates a whole new set of vision problems for people in this age group. Luckily after a decades worth of treatment data, we can now treat presbyopic eyes and restore natural vision.

AGE 60+

After the age of 60 the optical quality of the lens inside the eye may become worse, eventually turning into a cloudy cataract. Initially you can see fairly well with glasses, but later the vision is poor, even with glasses or contact lenses. Because these changes creep up slowly, you only realise how bad things were, once you correct the problem. New treatment advances allow cataract correction to be done at the same time as other visual correction procedures.

REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE

Refractive Lens Exchange provides great improvements in the quality of life of many patients by providing a range of focus and a very high level of independence from glasses.

PREMIUM CATARACT SURGERY

Modern cataract surgery not only restores the clarity of the optics in the eye but allows access to lens implant technology which can improve the focusing of the eye.

PHAKIC IOL

A phakic IOL is an intra-ocular lens which is fixed inside the eye to correct myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism. It is an additive procedure.

Eye surgery is widely available, what makes the Custom Vision Clinic different?

When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Custom Vision Clinic does not offer a one-size fits all treatment. Instead, we select the most appropriate technique to fix your visual problem. It is possible to get around a golf course using only a seven iron for all the shots. It’s also possible to get around a golf course using only a driver. An expert achieves their best results, however, with a full set of clubs.

We provide the complete range of laser eye surgery treatments using Zeiss technology. We have brought together all the most advanced diagnostic equipment available in the country in order to provide the safest and most accurate lens implantation, lens replacement and cataract procedures.

Tips for patients interested in laser eye surgery. The road to laser eye surgery can sometimes be confusing. Thinking of the journey as a step-by-step process, from an early interest in laser eye surgery all the way to post-operative care, might make it easier. The following supporting materials will help you learn more about what happens during the process, and answer questions along the way. However, it is recommended to consult with an eye care provider to get more knowledgable of the procedure and to find out whether laser eye surgery might be an option. Click here for more information
Discover how laser eye surgeries differ and compare. The following chart provides an overview of all key facts and figures when it comes to laser eye surgery. While all three Laser Vision Correction procedures have a high success rate, they differ slightly in the refractive errors treated, the treatment method used, and the clinical specifics of each procedure. A doctor or clinic representative can help you understand which procedure is best for your individual eye condition. Click here for more information

SMILE corrects myopia and astigmatism, or a combination of both refractive errors with only a very small incision at the corneal surface. This high-precision procedure is the latest development in the refractive laser treatments. Includes videos, treatment steps, and questions and answers.

LASIK treats refractive errors by folding away the top layer of the eye and re-shaping tissue underneath. If a femtosecond laser is used, this type of procedure is called Femto-LASIK. Includes videos, treatment steps and questions and answers. Click here for more information

PRK/LASEK procedures remove a thin cell layer from the top of the eye so the laser can reshape the underlying cornea. This surgery may be an option for those who are not eligible for LASIK or those who look for the most economic option for refractive laser surgery. Includes videos, treatment steps, and questions and answers. Click here for more information

Laser eye surgery treatments are clinically proven and established procedures. Like all surgeries, however, laser eye surgery is not free of risks and side effects. Only your ophthalmologist can explain the individual risks and decide whether laser eye treatment is an option. Some complications that can occur are… Click here for more information
