Mr Saeed performs modern cataract surgery with small no stitch incision by phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. Mr Saeed’s cataract surgery record is comparable to the national cataract data set with a very low complication rate. Mr Saeed takes on routine, low risk cataract surgery cases as well as complex high risk cataract surgery cases.

Mr Saeed recommends mono-focal intraocular lenses for patients undergoing cataract surgery to provide good vision at distance. Although multifocal lenses, (which can focus for distance and near) are available, this option does not suit everyone.

Mr Saeed is an expert in small incision Cataract surgery with phacoemulsification. He performs small incision cataract surgery with 2.2 mm incisions. The advantage with small incision size is no need for stitches. These incisions produce less astigmatism, heal quicker and lead to quicker overall recovery with reduced chances of per-operative problems.

Usually an anesthetist administers a local anesthetic to numb your eye. Then a tiny incision is made.A round opening is made in the front  layer of the cataract ( anterior capsule). Instruments are then inserted in the eye which break the cataract into small pieces. The cataract is then sucked out. The eye is washed from the inside. An artificial lens is usually placed in the eye to improve the focus.

95% of patients do not have any complications.

Problems and complications are rare. Usually the problems are minor, if encountered and can be rectified at the time of surgery or afterwards.
