By Using implanted lenses it is now possible to treat patients
with prescriptions from -20 dioptres to +10 dioptres with (+/-)
5 dioptres of astigmatism. It is also possible to treat patients
who are unsuitable for laser treatment because their corneal thickness
is considered to thin for Laser correction.
We do not consider this treatment to be suitable for people over
the age of 60 with early cataracts, people with glaucoma, recurrent
eye infections or other eye diseases.
