We treat your eyes – The five star treatment
A WONDERFULLY SMOOTH AND SEAMLESS EXPERIENCE FROM START TO FINISH
PRIVATE EYE SURGERY EXPLAINED
Here we explain what makes iLase a 5-star experience
Your surgery is personally performed by a specialist cataract and cornea surgeon with an international reputation
All surgery is performed by Prof Muhtaseb. No training of junior doctors takes place.
You determine when you have your surgery
Timing of surgery is flexible, and we work to accommodate your busy schedule. You will not have to wait for a prolonged period of time between surgery for the 1st and 2nd eye.
Both eyes working together, faster
As the two eyes can be treated in quick succession you will achieve binocular vision faster than usual, and minimise any issues with imbalance while waiting for the 2nd eye to be treated.
Recover faster and get your life back sooner
Prof Muhtaseb performs microincision cataract surgery, with faster recovery and quicker return to normal life.
Tailored treatment designed to achieve your goals
We use the most advanced technology to perform preoperative tests and plan your surgery. We also use a wide variety of the latest premium lens implants which allows us to formulate a bespoke treatment plan. In this way we can help you to achieve your desired outcomes.
Enjoy the ability to read without glasses after surgery
We offer multifocal lens implants that provide greater reading vision without the need for glasses after cataract or RLE surgery.
Our care doesn’t stop when you leave the hospital
Closely supervised aftercare, working with your optometrist and GP.
