Private Cataract Surgery in Droitwich
Cataract surgery is required when the lens inside the eye develops cloudy patches, and are no longer transparent, which can have a damaging effect on one's eyesight. Surgery is the only way to correct cataracts, and it involves replacing this cloudy lens with an artificial one. This is usually performed as a daycase procedure, under local anaesthetic.
Private Eyelid Surgery in Droitwich
Eyelid surgery (upper blepharoplasty) is the removal of droopy or sagging skin which sits above the eyelid. This is often deemed as a cosmetic surgery procedure but is something most ophthalmic surgeons can also perform. The cause is widely due to the ageing process; however, some people have naturally hooded eyelids. A lower blepharoplasty refers to excess or sagging skin underneath the lower lid which often can result in eye bags. By trimming and tightening the skin in this area can result in a more youthful appearance, and both procedures can be performed either under a local or general anaesthetic.
