Medical conditions such as diabetes can cause cataracts, as can the use of steroids. Cataracts can occur alongside other eye conditions, and are treated relatively easily through a tried and tested surgical procedure by a specialist surgeon.
Mr Barsam specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of these eye conditions, including diseases such as: Keratoconus, Fuchs endothelial dystrophy, Corneal scarring, complications of contact lens wear, microbial keratitis (contact lens induced corneal infection), blepharitis, dry eyes and pterygium.
2 Advanced Cataract Surgery (including laser cataract surgery) with premium intraocular lenses such as multifocal intraocular lenses and toric intraocular lenses.
3 Procedures for patients with ocular surface or corneal disease such as corneal transplant surgery for keratoconus or Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy.
Mr Barsam also sees patients with corneal disease who may not need surgery, such as those suffering from eye conditions and complications associated with contact lenses, blepharitis or dry eyes.
