Saint James Hospital Eye Clinic
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.
