What is lens replacement?

 Lens Replacement is the most advanced type of cataract surgery available. With Optegra’s state of the art Clarivu procedure lasting only 20 minutes per eye, the eye’s natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens. The surgery is typically most suitable for those over the age of 50, and a free consultation at one of Optegra’s Nationwide five star dedicated hospitals will be able to confirm if you are suitable for the procedure.

Is lens replacement surgery for you?

Lens replacement is a safe and effective solution for those suffering from astigmatism, cataracts, dependence on bi, varifocal or multifocal glasses or contacts, long or short sightedness or presbyopia. For those who have cataracts (or the beginnings of one) it will be removed during the procedure. Lens replacement surgery also prevents you from ever needing cataract surgery in the future.

Quick, painless and profoundly life changing

Thanks to the modern techniques and technology employed, lens replacement at Optegra is painless, takes just minutes to complete and is performed without pain under a local anaesthetic. Most patients are surprised at just how comfortable the procedure is – sight typically returns a few hours after the operation and your vision reaches its optimum 4-6 weeks later. Patients are usually back at work 3 days after the procedure.

What Is Clarivu?

Clarivu lens replacement by Optegra is an all-encompassing package that includes pre-assessments, cost of lenses and surgery, aftercare and any additional related surgery you may need. Clarivu is the premium lens replacement choice.
