If you have cataracts and age-related vision degeneration, Mr Jaheed Khan can help you

Mr Jaheed Khan is Clinica London’s cataract surgeon and retina specialist. His patients are very often older people who may well have a combination of a cataract and age-related degeneration. In particular, he specialises in age-related or diabetic retinopathy. If you have cataracts in both eyes, unfortunately, it is not possible to do both procedures on the same day, but the operations can take place one or two weeks apart. Here’s what to expect if you have cataract assessment and surgery.

If you suffer from glaucoma or cataracts, you should see Ms Laura Crawley

Ms Laura Crawley is an expert in the treatment of glaucoma and cataracts. As well as running a private practice at Clinica London, she performs surgery for these conditions at the Western Eye Hospital in London. Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery - also known as MIGS - requires a highly skilled specialist such as Laura, who is very experienced in microscopic glaucoma surgery. She will recommend the procedure to reduce eye pressure, thus preventing or reducing damage to your optic nerve. You can book in to see Laura at Clinica London on Mondays, Wednesdays and some Fridays, although she can also see patients at short notice outside these times by special arrangement.
