The professionalism of all staff and especially my consultant was second to none. Yvonne, Fife

Conditions

  • Keratoconus

    Keratoconus is a common condition in which the cornea becomes thinned and weaker, resulting in a bulged shape, poor quality light focusing and blurred distorted vision.

  • Presbyopia

    Presbyopia refers to the natural age related decline of reading vision, which starts to occur in the forties.

  • Astigmatism

    Astigmatism occurs when polarized light  travelling in a horizontal plane is focused differently to light travelling in a vertical plane.

  • Hypermetropia

    Eyes which are long sighted are smaller than average so light is (in theory) focused at a point behind the back of the eye.

  • Short Sight (Myopia)

    Shortsighted people have poor distance vision but good near vision, and this near vision stimulation in childhood leads to the development of good vision in both eyes.

  • Cataract

    Cataracts are the commonest eye problem requiring surgery.  They occur when the clear natural lens inside the eye becomes cloudy and is usually as part of the ageing process.
