INFINITY TREATS EYE DISEASE
Read about the wide range of eye disease that we diagnose and treat at Infinity Eye Clinic.
A cataract is an opacity of the natural lens of the eye. This causes blurred vision because it prevents light from entering the eye. Most cataracts develop because of natural aging.
Cataracts can be removed to restore vision. For most patients, the treatment of choice is a minimally-invasive procedure, called phacoemulsification, which lasts about 30 minutes.
Cataract surgery has a very high success rate, and the risk of a complication is low. Our surgeons are Consultants who benchmark their outcomes against national standards.

Glaucoma is a disease of the main nerve of the eye that causes irreversible loss of vision. Usually, glaucoma is associated with an excessively high pressure within the eye.
In its early stages, glaucoma affects peripheral vision and may go unnoticed. However, in its later stages, glaucoma can also affect central vision, affecting the ability to recognise faces and read.
Glaucoma can be treated to prevent its progression. This involves reducing the pressure inside the eye. A wide range of treatments is available including medicines, laser treatments, and surgery.
The retina is the light-sensitive layer that detects light when it enters the eye. Disorders that affect the retina may cause reduction or loss of vision, or distorted vision.
Many different diseases may affect the retina, including:
- Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Retinal Vein Occlusions
