This week on Body Talk, in association with Spire Hartswood Hospital, Jules Bottazzi chatted to Mr Jag Chawla, consultant ophthalmologist and oculo-plastic surgeon at Spire Hartswood Hospital. Jag talked about cataracts and how we’ll all get them eventually; the way eye surgery has changed over the years; and in particular the highly specialised refractive surgery which he uses to correct vision.
This new surgery means Jag can prescribe an artificial lens implant to do the same job as a varifocal lens would in a pair of glasses – and it has a high success rate (98%). He is also able to correct astigmatism at the same time as correcting distance and near vision with the special new lenses.
