Professor Tufail specialises in cataract surgery in eyes with co-existing macular or retinal disorders, such as macular degeneration or diabetic eye disease.
Cataracts and retinal disorders often co-exist. The correct timing of cataract surgery and planning appropriate treatment or prevention for any retinal or macula disorder that may be worsened by cataract surgery is important to achieve the best vision outcomes. Even with co-existing retinal or macular disease that may require simultaneous treatment, treatment can usually be carried out under local anaesthetic and with a minimally invasive technique not requiring any stiches as a day-case procedure. This allows for fast visual recovery and minimal disruption to normal lifestyle.
