That’s where the team at Opticall comes in! You may not notice the symptoms of cataracts, mentioned above, and that is why it is important to have a regular eye examination with us, Opticall, your home visiting opticians. As part of our appointment with you we will carry out a comprehensive NHS sight test and eye health check.
Dependent on the severity/types of cataracts in your eyes, in mutual agreement with yourselves we may suggest stronger glasses and the facilitation of vision aids. Otherwise, we will refer you to an NHS ophthalmologist (hospital eye specialist) for further assessment and possible treatment.
Treatment involves cataract surgery. The procedure removes your natural lens and replaces it with an artificial lens implant (known as an intraocular lens). The surgery will make your sight clear again so you can see, live and enjoy life once more.
Your physical and mental well-being is important so don’t put up with eye problems and put off having an eye test. We are your completely mobile, home visiting opticians and can come and visit you in the comfort of your own home and carry out your eye examination.
