Dr Michael Forrest
Cataract and Strabismus Surgery
Comprehensive Adult & Paediatric Ophthalmology
A cataract is an opacity in the normally clear crystalline lens of the eye. As cataracts become more dense, they cause progressive deterioration in vision.
Strabismus is the technical term for misaligned eyes, also known as “squint.” During strabismus surgery the muscles that attach to the eyes are operated upon.
OTHER EYE CONDITIONS
Glaucoma is a disease in which the optic nerve is damaged in a characteristic way, eventually leading to loss of vision and blindness.
