  • Beware the silent thief of sight – glaucoma is just one of the Big Three sight-threatening diseases of middle age

    If you’re aged 50 or over, you need to be vigilant against the onset of the Big Three diseases that can lead to blindness: glaucoma, cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. While you are likely to notice changes in your vision if you develop a cataract or AMD, chronic glaucoma can come on without any early signs or symptoms. That is why it is commonly known as the silent thief of sight. As we age, we need to take extra care to stay fit and healthy, and our eyesight is a major factor in this. If you’re over 50, read on to educate yourself on how best to avoid the Big Three eye diseases of middle age.

  • Cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) often occur together with ageing, but Mr Jaheed Khan can help you

    If you’re having difficulty reading a book or a newspaper, for example, and you notice some visual distortion in one eye, this can be a sign of age-related macular degeneration. However, your symptoms may have other causes, so it’s essential to get the right diagnosis. If you also have a cataract, then Mr Jaheed Khan can help you, as the two conditions often develop together with ageing. When you come into the clinic, you will undergo a series of tests before seeing Mr Khan, who will accurately diagnose your condition and advise on the best course of treatment.

  • If you have both diabetes and cataracts Mr Jaheed Khan will look after you

    Unfortunately, diabetes can affect the retina and make the onset of cataracts more likely at a younger age. Therefore, it's vital to maintain proper control of diabetes to help reduce the risk of retinopathy and cataracts. If you are over the age of 55 and diabetic, you should consult Mr Jaheed Khan, who can check your retina for any signs of disease and advise you on the best course of treatment, if necessary.

  • Is cataract surgery safe?

    Complications of cataract surgery are extremely rare. Our consultant surgeon, Mr Jaheed Khan, is very gentle and patient and he has a complication rate that is much lower than the national average. There is always a minute possibility that retinal detachment or infection and inflammation will occur, but on the rare occasion that it does, the vast majority of patients will make a complete recovery.

  • 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.
