Cataracts archive

Cataract is a condition we often treat here at Clinica London. We have highly trained consultants, the latest cataract technology, and a state of the art facility.

We often blog about cataracts to keep our patients educated about the condition, how it is caused, who treats it, the technology used to treat it and frequently asked questions that patients have for us.

At Clinica London, Mr Jaheed Khan and Ms Laura Crawley are our experienced cataract surgeons. To learn more about the condition or the consultants, follow our blog, subscribe to our newsletter or contact us.
