With Saint James Hos­pi­tal Eye Clinic’s lat­est gen­er­a­tion oph­thalmic laser tech­nol­ogy, pro­vid­ing so­lu­tions for peo­ple of all ages, you can now do away with spec­ta­cles, con­tact lenses and even read­ing glasses.

The new Saint James Hos­pi­tal Eye Clinic in Birkirkara rep­re­sents the very lat­est in oph­thalmic med­i­cal tech­nol­ogy. This truly first class set up pro­vides pa­tients with the best re­frac­tive surgery plat­forms avail­able any­where in the world.

With an in­vest­ment of over €2.5 mil­lion the clinic is equipped with the Carl Zeiss Re­frac­tive Surgery Suite, which in­cludes state-of-the art ex­cimer laser and fem­tosec­ond laser equip­ment. This is used to per­form in­ter­ven­tions on the cornea which is fast, pain free and blade free, pro­vid­ing re­li­able and pre­dictable re­sults. This treat­ment of­fers var­i­ous ad­van­tages, for ex­am­ple the pa­tient does not need to take time off work, does not re­quire ex­tended re­cov­ery pe­ri­ods and does away with most of the side ef­fects (al­though rare) as­so­ci­ated with sur­face ab­la­tion ex­cimer laser treat­ment. Pa­tients treated to­day ex­pe­ri­ence 6/6 clear vi­sion as of the very next day with­out their glasses or con­tact lenses. Free in­for­ma­tive lectures are held ev­ery week.

Another new re­frac­tive so­lu­tion is also avail­able to clients who have bi­fo­cal vi­sion, or who have never re­quired spec­ta­cles in the past but are of an age where read­ing glasses are now nec­es­sary to read the finer, smaller print. The ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy Al­con Cen­tu­rion Phaco surgery sys­tem com­bined with pre­mium lenses al­lows the sur­geons to per­form RLE (Re­frac­tive Lens Ex­change) in­ter­ven­tions, us­ing spe­cial lens im­plants that re­place the nat­u­ral lens of the eye and pro­vide a re­frac­tive so­lu­tion that elim­i­nates the need of read­ing glasses.
