A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye.
The most common cause is age.
Surgery remains the only treatment.
For more details on cataracts causes, symptoms, astigmatism and surgery, including options of intra-ocular lenses - click the link below. With VIVIOR AG, we can tailor your IOL choice to your lifestyle.
Both our doctors are members of the International Society of Bilateral Cataract Surgeons. Dr Farah has been published on the topic.
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the optic nerve as a result of too much pressure on the one million little nerve fibres that makes up the origin of the nerve.
All mechanisms, whether in adults or children, are related to the anatomy of the normal drainage pathway of the eye.
We perform an array of Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery including canaloplasty (ABiC) and other treatment options.
Dr Farah Moti did her Masters in Glaucoma and is passionate about the disease.
Refractive surgery corrects common vision problems
(eg. near-sightedness, far-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia).
LASIK is currently the most popular. In addition to LASIK, we offer SMILE and PRK.
Have you been told your corneas are too thin? Have you been told you are too old for LASIK? At JVI, using sophisticated imaging systems and technologically advanced laser systems, we endeavour to individualise a specific treatment plan suited to your needs.
Dr Rabia Moti has a Royal College of Ophthalmology (UK) diploma in Refractive Surgery.
The macula is responsible for 80% of your central vision.
AMD occurs commonly in patients with a family history, light eyes and smokers.
Prevent progression by coming in regularly for eye-check ups.
We will advise on the correct preventative measures and treatment.
Keratoconus is when the cornea is weakened and changes shape. It can begin in your early teenage years.
Causes include family history and frequent eye rubbing. Frequent change in glasses prescription is a common sign.
Treatment includes cross-linking, intra-stromal ring segments and corneal grafts in advanced cases.
Other causes of corneal transplant include ulcers, scars and dystrophies. We are experienced in full and partial thickness transplants.
This is a very common and somewhat debilitating but underestimated condition.
Dry Eye Disease is a vicious cycle of causative factors. At JVI, we understand the value of addressing all aspects of that cycle.
Our aim - to outline a specific treatment plan to ensure that you are functioning at 100% capability.
Dr Farah Moti does Optometry presentations on dry eye management.
Diabetes is a microvascular as well as neuro-inflammatory disease. Both these aspects can cause eye pathology.
Diabetic control can be monitored by regular eye check-ups as the eyes are often one of the first organs to be affected by the disease.
Have your eyes checked once a year if you are diabetic.
Dr Farah Moti has been published in the management of Diabetic Macular Oedema.
Neuro-Ophthalmology is a very under-utilised but necessary niche in Ophthalmology, providing a bridge with neurologists and neurosurgeons when the visual pathway is affected.
At JVI, we have a keen interest in
neuro-ophthalmology - and a good team of neurologists and neuro-surgeons for holistic care.
A pterygium is a growth or cystic mass starting adjacent to the cornea and growing over the cornea (the clear surface of the eye).
Causes include sunlight, dust, pollen and hereditary factors.
When growing over the cornea, it can result in astigmatism and corneal scarring if not surgically removed.
Paediatric ophthalmology is highly specialised as it requires patience, understanding and intensive support from parents to enable the child's best visual prognosis.
The correct team of specialists is paramount to enhancing your child's visual needs.
Normal eyelid positioning is essential for eye functioning.
Entropion and ectropion can cause eye irritation, tearing and inflammation.
A Blepharoplasty can correct droopy eyelids which reduce the superior field of vision.
Blepharitis is a chronic inflammation of the eye which results in uncomfortable and often debilitating signs.
Inflammation of the uveal tissue of the eye - if left untreated, results in a long-term prognosis of poor vision.
The uveal tissue of the eye involves the iris (that gives your eye its colour), ciliary body (that produces the fluid for the eye) and the choroid (it provides nutrients to the nerves of the retina).
Uveitis can be caused by medical conditions e.g. arthritis, eye conditions or trauma.
