Why Choose Private Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye, a natural ageing process that occurs in all eyes over a certain age. A cataract can also form at a younger age, usually due to other conditions.

Cataract surgery, one of the most commonly performed operations worldwide, is recommended when the level of vision due to the cataract is interfering with everyday life.

Choosing to go private for your cataract surgery has a huge number of advantages including shorter waiting times, specialist treatment and care, and providing you with a wider selection of choices.

Selecting the right surgeon

When you choose private cataract surgery, you have the chance to do your research and find the best surgeon for you. Whilst the price and the location of the clinic at which your surgery will take place may be important factors in your decision making process, the quality of the treatment and the care that you receive should be at the forefront of your decision.

Take the time to read patient reviews, case studies and testimonials to find out more about previous patients’ experiences before making a decision. Also learn more about prospective surgeons by reading about their qualifications, their experience in performing cataract surgery and their professional interests.

Using the information that you have gathered, you are then able to make an informed decision about who is the right surgeon for you. Doing extensive research may also help to reduce any fear and worry you may be feeling surrounding your cataract surgery.

Shorter waiting times

One significant benefit of opting for private cataract surgery is that you don’t have to wait for months to secure an appointment and receive your treatment.

This is particularly beneficial if you’re looking for a quick fix and want to have your cataract surgery as soon as possible, perhaps before you go on holiday with enough time in between to fully recover from the operation.

At Herts Eye Surgeon, we aim to see patients within 1 week (although normally within 1-3 days) so you can avoid long waiting lists and be seen when it’s convenient for you.

Specialist treatment and eye care

Choosing private cataract surgery guarantees that you will receive specialist treatment and eye care. From your first enquiry and initial appointment right up to your final review after the operation, your chosen surgeon is there to guide you through the procedure and provide you with the high-quality care.

Choose your lens implant

Opting to undergo your cataract surgery privately means that you have the opportunity to choose the lens that will be implanted during the operation. With the help of your experienced and knowledgeable surgeon to guide you through the process, you’re able to choose the type of lens that is best suited to you and your eyesight.

Tailor your treatment to you by choosing from three main types of lens:

  • Monofocal lenses
  • Multifocal lenses
  • Toric lenses

Each lens type has a different purpose and so, by selecting the lens implant most suited for you, you’re ensuring that you get the best results from your treatment.

Personalised after care

Once your procedure is over, we provide specialist, personalised after care including a direct phone number to Mr Venki Sundaram in case of any queries.

Approximately 2-4 weeks after the procedure, patients are reviewed at the clinic.
