|Squint and cataract treatment by Professor Christopher Bentley, London
Professor Christopher Bentley is a specialist in applying advanced
squint treatments for adults and children in the UK. He receives his patients at four eye clinics in the Greater
London area. Apart from treating patients with squint problems in the UK, Professor Bentley also undertakes
squint treatment for patients coming from Europe, Asia and other regions. In such cases suitable interpreters can easily be arranged.
Squint treatments are undertaken for both children and adults. Children may be born with a squint or acquire it following an illness such as viral fever, measles and meningitis. Adults may have a squint as a result of not having
squint treatment as children, or they may develop it as a consequence of other health problems, for example damage to cranial nerves. In all such cases, Professor Bentley will choose from a range of procedures and approaches, precisely selecting the correct
squint treatment with the best chance of correcting the appropriate squint condition.
Professor Bentley’s other specialty is cataract treatment and undertaking advanced
cataract surgery. This problem mostly affects people aged over 50. Cataracts are degenerative changes in the structure of the eye that form when protein in the lens begins to clump together, clouding a small area of the eye. Usually this clouding, in one or both eyes, will continue to grow and interfere with vision. Apart from the age factor, cataracts can be caused by eye trauma, certain medications, and various environmental and lifestyle factors.
Cataract treatment in the early stages may be using every stronger spectacles. However in the end the
cataract treatment option is surgery.
Professor Bentley is highly skilled in using the latest designs of
Multi-Focal Implants for
Cataracts, which are implanted into the eye to replace the diseased natural lens. These implants allow cataract patients to free themselves entirely from the need to use spectacles. Professor Christopher Bentley’s surgical facility in
London, UK is equipped to the highest standard and all his nursing and paramedical staff are highly trained in ocular surgery and
squint and cataract treatment in all its aspects.
