What your diet should look like if you want to have the best vision possible

By |December 6th, 2018|Categories: Cataract Surgery, Eye conditions, FAQ|

Maintaining a healthy diet is the best way to ensure optimum eye health. When we’re small, our parents tell us that carrots are good for our eyesight, and this is true - but good nutrition for eye health goes much further. Foods including tomatoes, peppers and strawberries also contain caretinoids, while leafy greens such as spinach and kale, which are rich in antioxidants, all help to boost eye health. Fish such as mackerel, salmon, sardines and tuna contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help to protect against dry eyes and other eye conditions. Find out more about how diet can make all the difference to good eye health.

Get rid of the effects of poor vision in your life

By |November 21st, 2018|Categories: About Custom Vision Clinic, Eye conditions, In the News, Laser Eye Surgery, Lens replacement|

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 |October 16th, 2018|Categories: About Custom Vision Clinic, Eye conditions, Laser Eye Surgery|

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.

The top 5 tips for a speedy recovery after laser eye surgery

By |October 3rd, 2018|Categories: Laser Eye Surgery|

After undergoing laser eye surgery, most patients recover quickly and notice an immediate improvement in their eyesight. However, you must follow your consultant's instructions for post-operative care to the letter. The doctor will give you different types of eye drops to keep your eyes lubricated and to prevent infection, along with a protective mask to keep you from rubbing your eyes while asleep. You will attend the clinic after surgery for periodic check-ups to make sure that all is in order and the doctor will advise you to avoid certain activities and sports, such as swimming, for a short period. The benefit of these follow-up appointments is that there is no extra charge for them, and if a problem does arise after surgery, the consultant can rectify it quickly.

Why eye health checks are so important

By |September 21st, 2018|Categories: Eye conditions|

I’ve spent decades advising others how to maintain optimum eye health, but these days I find I have to follow my own advice. After my mother had age-related macular degeneration diagnosed, I realised that I was also at risk and now I make sure that I’m doing everything I can to maintain good eye health. Having the right diet, exercising and protecting your eyes in the sun are just some of the steps you can take to achieve this. Here I outline the numerous measures you can take to cut down your risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.

The police announced that they will randomly test the vision of drivers. Driver’s unable to pass the test risk having their driving licenses revoked on the spot. So, who is ultimately responsible for ensuring that anyone with a license has a vision that meets the UK Driving Standard?

Better than the national average of complication rates
My eyesight following the operation is brilliant and better than I thought possible, and this is all down to your excellent surgeon Mr James Ball and not to forget all the very dedicated people around him who make these operations possible.
Keith Garlick
Two of the best decisions I ever made in my life were firstly to have lens exchange and secondly to have Mr James Ball carry out my operation.
Patricia Walton
Within minutes I could tell there was a difference. But now, only a couple of months later, my sight is better than it was seven years ago! I can even read the really tiny print on the car sales ads! If you want that confidence you probably felt when you were younger, this is the ideal solution.  Thanks to the treatment, I feel rejuvenated, independent and much younger!
John Hazelgrave
Many thanks for all your care and kindness. To me it appears a miracle that I can see so well. I feel very grateful. It is impossible to fully express my thanks.
Grace C.
May I offer grateful thanks for your expertise in operating on my eyes. It was intimated to me that you were the best, and from the results I am now enjoying, I am convinced that this is correct.
Jean D.
You are truly innovative. Thank you very much for curing the problems I have been having with my reading and near vision.
Sala M.
My work was becoming almost impossible. I had refractive lens exchange to both eyes with multifocal lens implants last July. I can now see better than 20/20 for distance and can read the tiniest print in newspapers - all without glasses! I have started reading for pleasure again, and I feel that my performance both at work and on the golf course has improved.
