‘I had become aware that I had cataract in both eyes and decided on multifocal intraocular lenses to potentially obviate the need for reading glasses.
I chose to consult Mr Levy not only because of his impressive professional reputation as a Consultant Ophthalmologist but also because he has the skill to perform the procedure on both eyes during the same surgical appointment.
My initial and subsequent consultations were held conveniently close to my home and all consultations have been preceded by a skilled comprehensive and thorough Optometry examination.
The surgical procedure, itself, was carried out at the Wellington Hospital under local anaesthetic. It took only one hour to remove cataract from both eyes and replace them with two marvellous multifocal lenses that enable me to see the world in sharp focus and glorious colour … and I don’t need reading glasses!
During the procedure there was, from time to time, some discomfort but never any real pain and at those times I found my hand being held by a welcoming, warm and comforting one!
My experience of cataract surgery has been absolutely positive and, in my view, Mr Levy’s reputation is well deserved.
Should you be considering cataract surgery I would suggest that you read Mr Levy’s publication, ‘Understanding Cataract.’ It will tell you everything they need to know about the procedure and post operative personal care.
