A cataract is clouding of the lens in your eye.You are normally born with a clear (transparent) Lens. It does the job of focussing the light from the outside world onto the retina which is the photographic film at the back of the eye.You can develop cataract due to many reasons, but ageing is by far the most common reason why people develop cataract.Read More..
These are procedures undertaken for diseases affecting the vitreous (the jelly of the eye) and the retina (the photographic film at the back of the eye). The common conditions are Retinal detachment, Macular hole, Epiretinal membrane, Vitreomacular traction and complications related to advanced diabetic retinal diseases.
The three common conditions affecting the retina which can be treated medically are age related macular degeneration, Retinal vein occlusion,and diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy affecting the sight can be treated in the early stages by laser or injecting a drug called as anti Vegf agents.If the diabetic eye disease is advanced then it may need vitreoretinal surgery.

Mr. Raman ia an excellent surgeon who filled me with confidence before and after my cataract surgery.
He took away any stress and I cannot recommend him enough
“I cannot speak too highly of Mr Raman. He has changed my vision and my life, for which I will always be eternally grateful. The morning after the operation I removed the eye pad, (admittedly with some apprehension) and could not “believe my eyes”. I could see, without a contact lens…….unbelievable!! I was a person, who when I woke up each morning, found my way to my bathroom by “habit”, and found my toothbrush, because I knew where it was! Now, I can go about my life without the need for a contact lens or glasses for the first time in 50+ years. He has exceptional expertise and also is a very caring and kind person. He makes you feel at ease and relaxed in what can be a very stressful and worrying situation. Attributes which I think are very important. I will continue to see Mr Raman on a regular basis to ensure all is well with my retinas. Hopefully all will remain “good”, but if it doesn’t I feel confident that I have chosen the best Ophthalmic Consultant to care for my complex eye issues.
Mr. Raman has been my consultant ophthalmologist since 2015.
My first dealings involved an emergency procedure to repair my retinal detachment.
His friendly attitude made me feel at ease as well as reassured about his professionalism. He also invited my wife to be present at these early discussions explaining retinal detachment. He explained in detail what the problem was and how he would approach the procedure to repair the detachment. It was helpful for me as well as my wife to understand what was involved. He welcomed any questions concerning this and explained in simple terms all queries.
Due to the complexity of the detachment I have remained under treatment by Mr. Raman and throughout, his attitude is always the same, very professional but prepared to have a light conversation as appropriate.
In summary I am very pleased to have received treatment from Mr. Raman.
