Eye Institute experts in cataract surgery
Wrinkles, grey hair, and cataracts are all inevitable signs of increasing age. Eventually, we all get cataracts, some earlier, some later; just like wrinkles and grey hair. When Jan discovered that her blurring and developing haze was due to cataracts, she chose Eye Institute for her cataract surgery and vision correction.
It’s little surprise that cataract surgery is the safest prosthetic operation known to man, which has become a remarkably accurate vision correction procedure that offers options for reduced glasses use, sometimes even complete independence from glasses.
Advances in technology mean that astigmatism, short sightedness, long sightedness and even the need for reading glasses can potentially be overcome.
‘‘The reaction when someone looks through their ‘‘new eyes’’ the day after surgery can be amazing and heartwarming’’ Dr Peter Ring, one of Eye Institute’s nine cataract surgeons says.
Cataract surgery at Eye Institute uses the latest technology from America and is carried out by expert Eye Institute surgeons Professor Helen DaneshMeyer, Professor Charles McGhee and Drs Simon Dean, Trevor Gray, Peter Hadden, Nick Mantell, Peter Ring, Shanu Subbiah and Adam Watson.
Procedures are carried out on-site in the stateof-the-art day stay operating suite in Remuera.
An Eye Institute patient, who preferred to be known only as ‘‘Jan from Whangaparaoa’’ has worn contact lenses for more than 40 years. Coupled with the growing cataract, she found that her loss of vision was a slow process, making the developing haze and dulling of colour almost unnoticeable until it reached its worst. Her eyes used to tire easily by the end of the day, but now, one day after her surgery she already finds her visual results remarkable.
‘‘Colours are more vibrant – white is WHITE’’! She repeats emphatically. The murky grey haze has gone instantly.
The time to embrace the vision you’ve always wanted, to experience the colour and vibrancy of crisp, clear vision is here. Eye Institute offers the most advanced procedures performed for cataracts today with remarkable precision and life-changing visual outcomes.
