I had cataract surgery and lense replacement on both my eyes this year. I was extremely apprehensive and nervous so it was very important that I find the right consultant for my operation. I searched online for a good Ophthalmologist surgeon and found Dr Musa at the Spire Elland. I cannot express how thankful I am that he was my surgeon. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my surgery. He is an extremely competent and capable surgeon. I have no doubt that I made the right choice. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr Musa to family and friends. Thank you Dr Musa and Spire Elland.

I was recommended to Dr Musa by my optician. I have had cataracts replaced in both eyes less than six weeks from first meeting him. He is professional and approachable. He explains everything clearly and concisely. I am highly delighted with the improvement in my eyesight and I would not hesitate to recommended him.

Not having ant type of surgery since I was 6 now 76 years and not knowing what to expect, on meeting Dr Musa for the first time Dr Musa professional approach soon put my wife and I at ease. His bedside manner made everything clear about the surgery and post treatment we would expect. My wife Brenda had both eyes operated on in January 21, and I had both eyes operated end of April start of May, with fantastic results. I would recommend anyone to see Dr Musa. Thank you from us both.

Dr Musa is friendly, professional and takes the time to explain everything in a way I could understand. He performed LASIK to correct my terrible shortsighted vision and I cannot believe the difference - 24 hours after surgery my vision was perfect with no pain or discomfort at all. Words can’t describe how amazing it is to wake up and be able to see without reaching for my glasses. I would 100% recommend Dr Musa for this procedure, and have done to several of my glasses wearing friends already.

I have been a contact lens wearer since the early 1960’s with no problems until recently (2020) when my optician mentioned that my sight was deteriorating, and that he had reached the limits of what was possible with new and stronger lenses each year. A referral to Yorkshire Eye Doctor (Spire) and an appointment and discussion with Dr Musa resulted in cataract removal surgery followed by lens implants on both eyes, and an almost unbelievable improvement in sight and vision was noticeable within 24-hours. I am struggling to find superlatives to describe the ‘relationship’ that I felt existed between doctor and patient during my initial consultation, the ensuing procedure and final follow-up. Dr Musa always had the time to listen, answer my questions and queries, despite the pressure of other demands upon him. If you are reading this review and contemplating eye surgery, then do not waste time, just simply make an appointment to talk to Dr Musa. David Taylor. 20/3/2020.

I had been wearing glasses for reading since age 42 (now 60), and for driving/TV for two years. I couldn't get used to varifocal glasses so continually had to carry two pairs with me all the time. It became a nuisance so I decided to have lens replacement. From the first consultation with Dr Musa at The Spire in Elland right through to aftercare check-ups with him I couldn't have asked for more. Dr Musa is a lovely man. He put me at ease and answered all my questions in a professional manner but in a way I could understand. He recommended the trifocal lens in each eye. I had no pain whatsoever at any point of the procedure, and now (four weeks after the first eye, one week after the second) thanks to Dr Musa I have better than 20/20 vision for all 3 distances, reading, middle and far. Highly recommended in every aspect. UPDATE: A couple of months after surgery, I had blurred vision in one eye. I went back to see Dr Musa. He examined the eye and said a membrane had grown over the eye (which can happen, but not usually so quickly). He lasered the membrane away painlessly and free of charge.

I highly recommend Dr. Musa for Laser eye surgery. I was hesitant to go ahead with laser eye surgery for 2 years, and as soon as I had a conversation with Dr. Musa I felt at ease. He explained to me thoroughly the shape of my cornea and which procedure I should go ahead with for safety reasons. Another well known mainstream company tried their best to get a sale out of me, whereas this was totally the opposite while dealing with Dr. Musa. Thank you so much!

Lens Replacement Surgery

The best Lens Replacement surgery in Yorkshire

What is Lens Replacement surgery?

Lens Replacement Surgery, also known as Refractive Lens Exchange, involves the insertion of an artificial lens, known as an intraocular lens, into the eye in the place of the damaged natural lens. Each lens is specially selected for each individual patient to ensure the most personalised and best possible outcome.  The main advantage of lens replacement surgery is that it prevents cataracts from forming at a later stage.

This operation also minimises your dependence on glasses after surgery. In expert hands, small incisions and lenses specifically designed for each individual eye are used.

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation for lens replacement surgery,  we will test your eyes to determine your suitability for the surgery. There are many different factors to your suitability for this treatment, including the strength of your glasses prescription, the thickness of your cornea and the dryness of the eyes, among others. 

If you are suitable for lens replacement surgery, we will then create a personalised plan with you including the discussion of the benefits and risks of the procedure. Lens replacement surgery is performed on only one eye at a time, so if you require surgery on both of your eyes, we will discuss the 2nd appointment during the consultation

If you have any questions, call us on 01484 977333 or schedule an appointment today

The Procedure

Successful lens replacement surgery demands exquisite attention to detail. The diagram to the right displays some of the main stages.

  1. Small incisions are made into the eye. The outer lens capsule is opened and the natural lens is removed.
  2. A foldable, artificial lens is inserted.
  3. The wounds are sealed and an antibiotic is placed in the eye.

The Pricing

We don’t believe in cutting corners. Therefore, we don’t offer cut-price treatments. When comparing prices for products that are the same (for example with furniture or cars), that may be fine. However, comparing for something like eye surgery, we don’t believe such an approach is ever going to work. Why? Every person and indeed every eye is unique and deserves to be treated as such.  

We ensure exceptional service, exceptional treatments with an exceptional level of skill. We use the latest technologies and all-inclusive packages. This comes at a worthwhile cost. 

What we do believe in is offering transparent, affordable pricing with no hidden extras. The zero APR finance packages make even the most complex treatments accessible. 

 

Lens based treatments
Cataract surgery with a single focus lens £2600
Cataract surgery with Toric lens/ Trifocal lens £3600
Refractive lens exchange £3600
YAG lens £400

FAQs - Post Surgery

topography guided laser eye surgery

It is expected that immediately after surgery you will notice a significant improvement in vision. This is just the beginning.

It is normal that patients with multifocal IOLs go through an adaptation phase, continuing to improve in the weeks following the procedure. It could take several weeks to realise the full extent of visual correction.

Multifocal IOLs project multiple images on the retina, which your brain uses for viewing objects at different distances. The brain must learn to select the visual information it needs to form an image of near, distant or intermediate objects.This adjustment time will vary for each patient.

With all multifocal IOLs, it is normal after surgery to experience some common visual disturbances. These may be more evident under poor light conditions, such as driving at night. Rings of light, commonly called ‘halos’, may appear around street lights or oncoming car headlights. As the brain adapts, these effects will diminish and become less bothersome. A positive attitude and the awareness that your vision will improve will help you adapt much faster.

If you have cataracts in both eyes, your doctor will typically schedule a second surgery in the near future. You will adjust better to your multifocal intraocular lenses when they are placed in both eyes.

For most patients, the desire for a life without glasses becomes a reality. However, even with an optimal surgical outcome, it may be necessary to use glasses for some activities such as reading or computer work, some of the time. This is a possible trade-off for the increased independence from glasses you can expect; and for many patients, the possibility of freedom from glasses that will last a lifetime.

No, but you can develop a thickening or clouding of the posterior capsule membrane behind your new lens implant in the months or years following your surgery.

This occurs in approximately one in 10 cataract surgery patients and is called posterior capsular opacification and causes blurring of vision.

This can be treated with an outpatient laser procedure, known as YAG laser capsulotomy. It is usually very effective, painless and quick. The risks of YAG laser treatment are much smaller than the risks of the original cataract procedure and will be detailed at your consultation.
