Patient Information

Cataract

Cataract

A cataract is the natural lens inside the eye, which has become cloudy (see figure below). It is situated behind the pupil but in front of the vitreous jelly and retina. Removal of the cataract is usually performed when this significantly affects the eyesight.

Refractive / Laser Eye Surgery

Refractive / Laser Eye Surgery

We see by forming an image on the retina. Images are focused on the retina by the cornea (the clear part of the front of the eye) and the natural lens. About half the Irish population requires glasses or contact lenses to focus a clear image of a distant object on the retina.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus

In patients with keratoconus the cornea is not only cone shaped, the surface is also irregular or warped resulting in a distorted image being projected onto the brain. Keratoconus can be difficult to detect, because it usually develops slowly. However, in some cases, keratoconus may proceed rapidly.

Corneal Graft Surgery

Corneal Graft Surgery

The cornea is the window or windscreen at the front of the eye. Light travels through the cornea past the lens to the retina and then the brain to form a visual image. All the layers can be affected individually or in combinations.
