 A Cataract is the clouding of the lens in your eye. Normally your lens is clear and helps focus the light entering your eye. Developing cataract will cause your sight to become cloudy and misty. Cataract can affect one or both eyes.

Cataracts are treated by surgery, during which the cloudy lens is removed and replaced by an artificial lens. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the UK.

Cataract surgery has advanced significantly over the years and Eye Care Scotland is proud to use some of the industry’s most advanced technology to provide the best outcomes. We can also use this technology to provide our patients with a range of premium options should you wish spectacle independence.

Our premium lens implant options can provide better visual outcomes, potentially eliminating the need to wear glasses after surgery. Laser assisted cataract surgery is also proving a popular option for patients as it enhances overall precision and accuracy compared to standard cataract removal.

At Eye Care Scotland our cataract surgery package prices include the cost of your surgery and all appropriate aftercare appointments.

However any pre-surgery diagnostic tests and your consultant’s outpatient appointment consultation fee are charged separately.

Our costs include all surgery fees and aftercare appointments with our Consultant Ophthalmologists and Optometrists.

We provide fixed term monthly payment plans over 12 - 60 months with no deposit required. If you decide to pay over 12-months, you will pay interest free. If you are paying for a longer period, you pay 9.9% APR.

Cataract Surgery

Most cataract surgery in the UK is performed by phacoemulsification. This is a way of removing your cataracts with an instrument which uses sound waves to break up the lens in your eye.

Most cataract surgeries are performed under local anaesthetic, which means that you’ll be awake during the operation, but you won’t feel any pain. Your local anaesthetic may be delivered through eye drops, an injection, or a combination of both.

Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery

Laser assisted cataract surgery  is an advanced type of cataract surgery that uses femtosecond laser technology to bring a new level of precision and accuracy to specific steps in cataract surgery that traditionally have been performed with hand-held surgical tools.

The added precision, accuracy and reproducibility of each of these steps, when performed with a laser, potentially can reduce certain risks and improve visual outcomes of cataract surgery.

We can offer different lens options when having cataract surgery:


A monofocal intraocular lens aims to reduce spectacle dependence for distance (driving) vision.

Multifocal Lens

A multifocal intraocular lens aims to reduce spectacle dependence for a wider range of activities, including intermediate (computer screens) and near (reading) vision.

Toric Lens

A toric intraocular lens aims to correct astigmatism as well as near-sightedness and far-sightedness.
