Centre For Sight's History
Centre for Sight for is the UK’s longest provider of LASIK eye surgery, with locations in London, Surrey, and Sussex.
Founded by revered consultant eye surgeon Sheraz Daya in 1996, the clinic specialises in the provision of LASIK, ICL, Laser Lens replacement surgery and Laser Cataract Surgery. The surgery was founded to bring the latest techniques and technologies to patients, such as scalpel-free Intralase femtosecond laser eye surgery, which was introduced in 2004. The Centre for Sight is recognised among patients and the international opthamalogical community, with doctors regularly visiting the centre to observe the pioneering treatments and laser technology available.
At The Centre for Sight, each patient is given his or her own surgeon, who will oversee the procedure from the first appointment to final check-up, all in a state-of-the-art facility. In addition to being ISO 9001 and 4001 accredited, the clinic has also won numerous awards.
Treatments & Technology At Centre For Sight
There are a number of treatments available at the Centre for Sight, including LASIK and IntraLASIK, ICL (Implantable Contact Lenses), Laser Cataract Surgery, Corneal Grafts and Stem Cell transplants.
The Centre for Sight began practising IntraLASIK in 2004, which is widely regarded as the safest and most precise method of carrying our LASIK laser eye surgery. During a traditional LASIK procedure, a small flap is created to allow the ophthalmologist access to the cornea, whereas with IntraLASIK the flap is created with computer-programmed precision without using a blade. The result is a higher level of accuracy and increased patient comfort. Another popular treatment is Laser Refractive Lens Exchange, a procedure performed more than 2,000 times at the Centre for Sight. During this procedure, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial multifocal or trifocal lens as needed to correct vision. The procedure is carried out using the Victus femtosecond laser for the utmost precision and accuracy. Conditions such Keratoconus can also be treated at the clinic. This non-inflammatory condition occurs when the cornea thins to the point that a cone-shaped bulge develops, which can be corrected with laser treatment.
In order to carry out these procedures, the Centre for Sight has invested in leading technology to provide patients with higher levels of accuracy and success. One such piece of technology is the Victus femtosecond cataract laser, used in both cataract and refractive lens exchange procedures. Laser eye correction is made more accurate thanks to technology such as the Zyoptix Dual Work Station, which enables your opthamologist to obtain 3D imaging of your eyes during your first consultation. The Advanced Control Eye Tracker assists with iris recognition, all of which helps to ensure the laser accurate targets points of refractive errors once the procedure begins. The Zywave Aberrometer is used during custom wavefront-assistance LASIK, while the Zyoptix Platformhis is the excimer laser of choice. This is the laser that actually reshapes the cornea during standard LASIK surgery. The Centre for Sight invested in the EXCIMER LASER – 217P in 1999, and added the Intralase Femtosecond laser to their offering in 2004, more 18 months before any other clinic in the UK was able to offer it to patients.
While the technology is important, so too is operator training, which is why Centre for Sight only takes on highly experienced surgeons who are fellowship trained in the Cornea. This gives patients complete faith in their experience, competence and knowledge when it comes to performing corrective laser eye surgery.
