Treatments, operations and tests

Tear duct blockage is one of the main causes of watery eyes and often, the only effective treatment will be surgical. The usual operation is called dacrocystorhinostomy (DCR). In this operation a new tear passage is made between your tear sac and your nose which will bypass any blockage below your tear sac and allows tears to drain normally again. If a narrowed small channel (canaliculus) is not fully blocked it may simply be widened by pushing in a probe.
A small incision is made into the eye, the cataract is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. Artificial intraocular lenses, or IOLs, replace the eye's natural lens that is removed during cataract surgery. These days there are a number of different types of IOLs, all intended to serve a different medical need, such as IOLs for Astigmatism, Multifocal or Monovision and more. It is important for the patient to discuss his or her need in depth before choosing a lens. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic as a day case.
A cataract is a condition affecting the lens of the eye. The lens is situated inside the eye behind the pupil and iris. Its normal function is to focus the light to ensure we see a clear image. A cataract is present when the lens, which is normally clear, becomes cloudy. This restricts the amount of light that is able to enter the eye, causing blurred vision, dazzle and glare. A lens implant is inserted into the eye to replace the cataract. In the majority of cases no stitches are required. The operation is normally carried out under local anaesthetic. Most patients have surgery as a day case, although some opt to stay in hospital over night.
The Femtosecond Laser brings micron level accuracy, needle-free, blade-free surgery to the public and is the greatest breakthrough in cataract surgery in the last 25 years. It has the potential to carry out lens extraction or cataract surgery through a pin-prick incision and is considered safer and more superior to current cataract surgical techniques.
Ectropian is defined as outward turning of lower eyelid and Entropian is inward turning of eyelid. The most common cause of Ectropian and Entropian is the lack of elasticity of tissue which usually occurs in old age. Surgery for these conditions is a relatively minor procedure that usually takes up to 45 minutes under a local anaesthetic.
Blepharoplasty is surgical modification of the eyelid. Excess tissue such as skin and fat are removed or repositioned, and surrounding muscles and tendons may be reinforced. It can be both a functional and cosmetic surgery. Blepharoplasty is usually performed through external incisions made along the natural skin lines of the eyelids, such as the creases of the upper lids and below the lashes of the lower lids. Incisions may be made from the inside surface of the lower eyelid (transconjunctival blepharoplasty); this allows removal of lower eyelid fat without an externally-visible scar, but does not allow excess skin to be removed
Skin slackens with age, resulting in wrinkles and folds of loose skin, often such folds can collect around the eyes. An eyelid reduction removes the surplus skin and produces a younger, more alert and healthy appearance.

An Implantable Contact Lens works with the eye to correct poor vision. The lens stays indefinitely in the eye although it can be easily replaced should it need to be.
Ptosis is a (drooping) of the upper or lower eyelid. This condition is sometimes called "lazy eye", but that term normally refers to amblyopia. Aponeurotic and congenital ptosis may require surgical correction if severe enough to interfere with vision or if cosmesis is a concern. Treatment depends on the type of ptosis and is usually performed by an ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeon, * Levator resection * Müller muscle resection * Frontalis sling operation Non-surgical modalities like the use of "crutch" glasses or special Scleral contact lenses to support the eyelid may also be used.
