FAQ Videos archive

In this blog archive, we have created a series of videos that our consultants answered frequently asked questions from our patients. The topics range from cataracts, glaucoma, dermatology, diabetic retinopathy, aesthetic treatments, facial rejuvenation, eyelid surgery, etc.

The videos are designed like an actual conversation that the consultant may have with a patient. The video content ranges from questions about the consultants experience to the steps they go through while performing treatments.

What is fibrin adhesive?

And our feedback from our patients after we use fibrin adhesive for their eyelid surgery is that they are very pleased by not having to have a lot of stitches. It means not so much time spent underneath the surgery and a quicker recovery.

What is a transconjunctival blepharoplasty?

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty: Terrible words to pronounce, basically means doing eyelid surgery on a lower lid from inside the eyelid through the fine mucous membrane, called conjunctiva.

Can I have watery eyes surgery done under local anaesthetic?

The watery eyes surgery is called DCR or dacryocystorhinostomy. We do a special technique, using a very small incision in the tear trough under local anesthetic. It is done in the hospital. So you have all the nursing facilities, technical facilities and recovery facilities, but you are actually awake.
