Treatments include:

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is recommended by our experienced ophthalmic consultants in Bath when cloudiness is detected in the lens of the eye. This can cause vision to deteriorate, making what was once clear now dull and blurry. Only a small incision is needed to remove the cloudy lens, enabling our patients to rapidly regain clear vision.

Lens Exchange Surgery

Lens exchange surgery sometimes referred to as lens replacement, clear lens surgery or clear lens exchange, is a treatment for those suffering from long-sightedness (presbyopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) or for patients with an excessively thin cornea. Lens exchange surgery will remove the natural eye lens, exchanging it with an artificial intraocular lens. Our ophthalmic consultants at BMI Bath Clinic will explain the potential benefits to you, such as removing the need for glasses or contact lenses, and preventing the future possibility of cataracts developing.

Eyelid Surgery

Patients at BMI Bath Clinic will opt for eyelid surgery for a variety of reasons. This might include a need to improve their vision, to gain a younger look or to eliminate excess skin and reshape the eyelids. Also referred to as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can come in two forms. An upper-eyelid reduction procedure is usually carried out to help you look younger, while improving your eyesight. A lower-eyelid reduction, on the other hand, is well suited to reducing wrinkles and tightening the skin. Ultimately, eyelid surgery rejuvenates the skin around the eye, also taking care of excess skin that may hang over the eyelashes.
