Accommodating Implants

Surgeons at Viewpoint were one of the first in UK to offer these lenses to certain suitable individuals.

These new lenses are now available which promise some degree of focusing for near and far distance – so called ACCOMMODATING lenses.

The accommodating lenses are more flexible like your natural lens. Like your natural lens they can move or alter shape within your eyes to alter your focus from far to near.

Mr Chitkara was the first Surgeon in the world to use the Tetraflex accommodating lens and in fact helped to design the lens. The Tetraflex lens is now the most popular accommodating lens in use in UK.

The consultant will discuss with you in detail, the choice of lens used and the technique which will be most appropriate for your needs during consultation.

“I would like to thank everyone at viewpoint for the wonderful treatment I have had over the past 2 years. A special thank you to Deepak for giving me perfect sight for the first time in my life. It is a wonderful feeling to wake up in the morning and be able to see. I just wish this would have happened years ago. Once again thank you and I salute you Deepak for your wonderful skills.” Bernadette S from Manchester had RLE

“Cannot speak too highly of my treatment or the results  I don’t need specs anymore. Thanks.” Roland B from Isle of Man had RLE

I have worn reading glasses for years so I decided I would go for laser surgery. Read several negative reviews on high street stores and it appeared it was a case of do the procedure and that's it, no aftercare as such and not always good results. But then I came across Viewpoint. The reviews were good so I made an appointment. Although I initially thought I would be having laser surgery, Dr Chitkara recommended I had a Raindrop Implant. Although the thought of someone cutting my eye and inserting a lens, albeit tiny, terrified me I thought I would take the plunge and go for it! I can honestly say it was totally painless. Drops are administered in the eye and you cannot feel a thing. The procedure took about ten minutes and post-op Dr Chitkara suggested I take paracetamol if there was any discomfort - there wasn't. I have been for a check up every four weeks and everything is fine. I can now read without glasses unless it is very small, faint print. It can take six months to see the full benefit. I would definitely recommend Dr Chitkara and the Raindrop Implant, just wish I had had it done years ago! Beverley W –  Cheshire July 2016
Not the most pleasant surgery experience I’ve ever been subjected to but wow! What a great result! 34 years with spectacles and now 20-20 vision and given up smoking to boot! Well worth it!

My consultation was absolutely hospitable and enjoyable. I wish I knew this man before because I went elsewhere and did not receive adequate help even though I paid fees, causing me so much stress. The operation was easy, painless and all through the process DR Chitkara and staff were very friendly and reassuring. This has changed my life completely now my sight is restored. Dr Chitkara even phoned me after surgery at home to make sure I was doing well. I can’t say enough how I appreciate his service and kindness.
