Estimates are available before treatment on request to the secretariat. We will provide all reasonable help to patients to ensure the best possible pricing, but it is important for patients with private medical insurance to understand that any shortfall is their liability.
Unusually, we provide personal injury reports for a fixed fee (subject to certain conditions: please ask), and also offer a discount if we fail to meet deadlines.
Please contact the office for further information and current terms of business.
We are happy to arrange for Professor Claoué to discuss cases with you: please contact the office to arrange a mutually convenient time for a teleconference.
"In so many ways it is just easier, instead of having to put my eyes in first I can just pop out whenever I want, doing things impulsively without planning to take glasses, contacts lenses, pots and solutions and so. Now I just get up and go."
After surgery, vision may still be slightly blurry in the first few days after the operation - the eye will be inflamed and need time to settle before the full vision is returned. A change in glasses may be needed after the operation, before the full benefits are realised. Old glasses may be worn after the operation if this helps the sight; they will not do the eye any harm. Sunglasses may be useful if lights are found to be very dazzling - do what keeps comfortable and allows you to see best. Drugs given as eye drops will be needed after the operation, usually for 4 weeks. These are important to minimise the risk of infection and to help the eye inflammation settle quickly - please use them regularly as instructed. In some cases they may need to be continued longer, but the consultant will provide instructions to this effect. The eye should not be painful after the operation - a scratchy feeling or a mild ache is quite usual and should settle with painkillers such as paracetamol. Should the eye become very painful, and especially if the vision from the eye worsens then you should contact the practice immediately.
