Cataract surgery is an ever-improving area of medicine and has moved forward dramatically in recent years. There are now advanced, laser-assisted options that provide some additional benefits to patients who are suitable for this procedure.
Eye Care Scotland is the only provider of laser-assisted cataract surgery in a hospital environment in Scotland. We’re proud to offer this advanced cataract treatment to many of our patients. Laser assistance allows the consultant to be more precise and offer more customised treatment options.
Traditional cataract surgery is still a popular and highly successful option for many patients and offers the same result of significantly improved vision.
Your consultant will discuss the various options available to you after a thorough diagnostic examination.
When you arrive for your initial consultation at Ross Hall Hospital, you’ll be welcomed by our reception team, who will confirm your details and offer you a seat in our waiting area before your consultant comes to greet you.
During your appointment, your consultant will discuss your symptoms and reason for visiting, go over your medical history and any questions you have before determining the appropriate next steps.
Your consultant has access to some diagnostic equipment in the consultation room so that they can carry out certain examinations and tests there and then.
Eye Care Scotland has a comprehensive range of diagnostic testing facilities within the dedicated department at Ross Hall Hospital.
Depending on your symptoms and the diagnostic results, your consultant may also wish to refer you to another Ophthalmologist within the department that specialises in your specific condition. Rest assured that the teamwork closely together and finding the right specialist for your needs is straightforward.
If your consultant recommends a procedure, you’ll be provided with all of the details required for you to make a decision that’s right for you. If you’re paying for your own treatment, you’ll be offered a fixed quote with no hidden costs. If you’re using your private medical insurance, then it is important to obtain authorisation for any procedure ahead of time.
