IN THIS VIDEO PROF MOHAMMED MUHTASEB DISCUSSES WHETHER REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE IS DANGEROUS

Is refractive lens exchange dangerous?

Refractive lens exchange is not a dangerous procedure.

It’s a very safe procedure with a very high success rate and a very high patient satisfaction rate.

Every surgical procedure carries a small element of risk. A full discussion during the consultation with the patient regarding the potential benefits and the potential risks of the surgery is important.

Sometimes patients will want to come back for a second visit. They’re welcome to do this once they’ve had time to consider the proposal and read the written summary of information that I give them at the end of the consultation…

Patients will form queues for post-COVID cataract surgery. You can make progress towards clear vision (and beat the queue for surgery) by having your first appointment from the safety of your home

Meet online or over the phone with our surgeon, Prof Muhtaseb, and get a clear answer about all of your cataract surgery options (including the little known possibility of fixing your reading and/or distance vision at the same as you fix your cataracts). Critically, after your video or telephone appointment, you will have the opportunity to secure your spot on the waiting list once our clinic re-opens.

Once all questions have been answered satisfactorily, patients often choose to go ahead and are very satisfied with the outcomes.

It’s not a dangerous procedure.

I invite you to book a consultation to determine your suitability for refractive cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. It’s the only way to determine your suitability for these procedures and to have an in-depth discussion regarding the risks and benefits of each of them. I look forward to seeing you there and taking you through the journey to achieving your desired postoperative outcome.
