Vision Correction Services
VISION CORRECTION: WE OFFER MANY PROCEDURES
Vision correction is much more than laser eye surgery. There are actually 8 types of vision correction procedures: LASIK, LASEK, SMILE, Refractive Cataract Surgery, Refractive Lens Exchange, Phakic Intraocular Lenses, Corneal Inlays and Corneal Crosslinking.
Mark Wevill is the only surgeon in Birmingham and the West Midlands who has experience and expertise in all of them and is able to recommend the best vision correction solution for you personally. Your eyes are unique, therefore you need a customised vision correction solution tailored specially to you.
Laser or lens treatment? Why not decide with us or let us make a recommendation about which is best for you? Your own individual, personal treatment plan may include one or more of the following:
Laser Eye Surgery - LASIK and LASEK
Why not join the millions of people who are experiencing the benefits of laser eye surgery (LASIK, LASEK and PRK)? Laser treatment is best for you if you are between about 20 & 50 years old. At your consultation your eyes will be analysed with advanced eye scanners. The information is used by the latest Schwind excimer & Intralase femtosecond lasers to carry out a personal, customised treatment of your eyes. All the laser treatments are wavefront, accurate, blade free & take about 10 minutes to change your life.
The Intralase femtosecond laser creates bubbles with incredibly accurate laser pulses which last less than a billionth of a second. The bubbles gently create a thin layer on the surface of your eye which is carefully peeled away. The underlying layer is then precisely reshaped by a Schwind Armaris laser using precision German optics. Then the layer is carefully replaced. You’ll see the difference immediately and it gets better quickly.
LASEK (or advanced surface treatment) is also better suited to certain people’s eyes and for some sports and occupations. No flap is created – the surface layer is loosened to allow the surface of the cornea to then be reshaped by the Schwind laser. Read more about laser eye treatment.
If you are over 40 and have presbyopia (difficulty reading and seeing your phone) then you may be suitable for monovision treatment, which can restore reading vision. Mark has had monovision laser eye surgery as he happens to be over 40! He has been carrying out laser eye treatments since 1996 and will be able to advise you about the best option for your unique eyes.
Lens Replacement Surgery
(Also known as Lens Exchange & Intraocular Lens )
Having to wear reading glasses can make us feel old. But a carefully selected, new intraocular lens (IOL) can replace your ageing natural lens, turning back the years and restoring your vision. Your old lens is removed and replaced by a high tech, new lens. This treatment is usually best for you if you are older than 40.
A quick refractive lens exchange surgery procedure with the latest intraocular lenses has rejuvenated the sight of thousands of Mark Wevill’s patients lives and they can now drive and read without glasses. The procedure is the same as cataract surgery. We may be able to get rid of your frustrations and your glasses. So why not see if you’re suitable by booking a consultation in Birmingham with Mark, who has been correcting people’s vision with intraocular lens implants for over 20 years? He’ll recommend the best lens for you personally.
Phakic Lens or Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL)
Phakic lens implants are like small contact lenses which are placed in your eyes between your own natural lens and your cornea (front window of your eye). Your own lens is not removed and this treatment is usually best if you’re younger than 50. The results are excellent, especially for people who are very short sighted or scared of laser eye surgery.
Types of phakic lenses include the Visian ICL, Artisan or Artiflex lenses. Mark has been implanting phakic lenses since 1998, and will let you know if you are suitable for this procedure.
BLENDED VISION / MONOVISION
Blended vision (previously known as ,monovision) is a clever optical trick to improve near vision in people who need reading glasses. One eye is adjusted to enable you to see near (e.g. a book, make-up) and intermediate distance (satnav) objects the other is adjusted for good distance (driving, tv) and intermediate. The focus point in each eye averlaps at the intermediate focus which works well and most people adapt to this quickly and easily and the result can be achieved with Schwind laser LASIK or LASEK, or intraocular lenses.
This is the treatment Mark Wevill has had to give him freedom from glasses.
