How to Choose Your Lens
Nowadays there are many choices for what sort of intraocular lens you have implanted after cataract or clear lens surgery. They all have different strengths and weaknesses and choosing the best lens for you can be confusing. Read on for information to help you choose the right lens for your eyes.
Keratoconus is a common condition resulting in progressive weakening and steepening of the cornea, the glassy window at the fron of the eye. Dr Beckingsale performs all forms of surgical keratoconus correction including corneal cross linking, topography guided laser, corneal rings, implantable contact lenses and corneal ransplants.
Laser Vision Correction
Dr Beckingsale is one of Queensland's most experienced refractive surgeons. He performs LASIK, PRK and SMILE treatments for the correction of myopia (short sightedness), hyperopia (far sightedness) and astigmatism.
Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy
Fuchs' corneal dystrophy is a common condition causing the inner pump cells of the cornea (endothelial cells) to wear out sooner than they should. Modern endothelial transplant techniques such as DMEK & DSAEK allow safe and effective treatment.
A pterygium is a fibrous red growth on the inner or outer aspect of the eye caused largely by excessive sun exposure. As such Queensland is the pterygium capital of the world and Dr Beckingsale is very experienced at their removal.
Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery
MIGS involves the placement of a tiny stent in the eye, usually at the same time as cataract surgery. This allows fluid to bypass the normal drainage mechanisms of the eye and may be helpful in the management of glaucoma.
Blepharitis and Dry Eye
Blepharitis means inflammation of the eyelids and dry eyes means there are not enough watery tears protecting the surface of the eye. These conditions are extremely common and often coexist. They can result in discomfort, blurred vision and irritation.
