Get rid of the effects of poor vision in your life

By James Ball | 21 November 2018

Next time you’re struggling with blurred vision, you should realise that you don’t have to put up with this problem. Blurred vision can not only adversely affect your quality of life in simple ways, such as when you’re struggling to see the labels in the supermarket, but it can also interfere with your leisure activities. Mr James Ball, a consultant ophthalmologist, opened Custom Vision Clinic last year after asking patients what was important to them when choosing a clinic. As a result, patients will find that Custom Vision Clinic is located in beautiful surroundings, is easily accessible by car and has ample parking. James offers a no-obligation initial consultation to assess your visual needs and recommend treatment if required.

Recovery from eye surgery might be smoother than you think

By James Ball | 16 October 2018

Early laser eye surgery in the 1970s involved infection risks and lengthy recovery times. At Custom Vision Clinic our consultant ophthalmologist, James Ball, prefers where possible to use more modern techniques such as LASIK and ReLEx SMILE™. These are minimally invasive procedures and have a much quicker recovery time, enabling patients to return quickly to their everyday activities. In addition, Custom Vision Clinic tends to treat patients in the evening, meaning they can do a full day’s work on the day of their surgery and have minimal disruption afterwards.
