Lens Replacement FAQ’s

Q: What is Lens Replacement Surgery?

A: Lens replacement surgery is an advanced development of cataract surgery. It’s one of the most performed surgical procedures. The natural lens of your eye is permanently replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL0). Each eye will take typically 20-30 minutes.

Q: Can i Have both eyes done at the same time?

A: No. Typically we would not perform a lens replacement procedure on both eyes at the same time. This is because each eye requires a separate procedure and a recovery period. We would recommend waiting at least a minimum of a week before proceeding with the second eye.

Q: When will I be able to return to work?

A: You should be able to return to work after 2-3 days or when you feel comfortable to do so. However, if your job involves working in dusty or smoky environments, we would strongly advise you to wait until at least 2 weeks before returning to work.

Q: Can I have a lens replacement if I’ve had laser eye surgery before?

A: Usually yes. However, it does limit the options on the type of lens replacements available to you. Mr Gangwani will discuss all options with you at your consultation.

Q: I’ve already have cataracts. Can I still have lens surgery?

A: Of course. If you already have a cataract, we can remove it during the procedure. Another advantage is that once you have had lens replacement surgery, you will not need to have cataract surgery.
