Premium Cataract Surgery Service

Is your vision becoming increasingly foggy/blurry even with your glasses on? Does it feel like you are constantly looking through misted up glass? Are you struggling with glare while driving and haloes around lights at night? You may have cataracts.

Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in patients over 50 years of age. A cataract occurs when the clear lens of the eye becomes increasingly cloudy with age. This prevents light from passing through the lens adequately to be able to focus on the retina.

Dr York has been performing Cataract Surgery for the past 9 years and has performed thousands of successful cataract procedures.

What Is Cataract Surgery?

Cataract surgery is a quick and painless day case procedure where the cloudy, aged lens in your eye is removed and replaced with a new crystal clear lens. Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure done in the world and rates number one in post-operative quality of life questionnaires.

What To Expect

Dr York offers small incision, sutureless, phacoemulsification cataract surgery with premium intraocular lenses. The surgeries are routinely done under local anaesthesia as a day case procedure in the St Georges Hospital Eye theatre. An anaesthetist is present to provide sedation (to help you stay relaxed and calm) and close monitoring during the procedure. The St Georges eye theatre is a state of the art facility with modern equipment and specially trained ophthalmic nurses.

The Screening Process

Dr York utilises modern pre-operative screening technology including corneal topography, laser interferometry and OCT scans to help provide the best possible outcomes.

Dr York will discuss with you pre-operatively the most suitable lens options individualized for your specific day to day functional needs. He offers a wide range of premium intra-ocular lens options, including monofocal, monovision, toric and multifocal lenses.
