He not only treats patients in London but across Great Britain and throughout the Middle East.
To start laser cataract removal surgery, Mr. Barsam uses a femtosecond laser to make a tiny incision in the capsule that holds the eye’s lens. Next, Mr. Barsam uses ultrasound energy to break up the cataractous, or cloudy, lens gently prior to suctioning out the cloudy lens pieces from the eye. Finally, he replaces the cataractous lens with an intraocular lens implant, also known as an IOL. The premier cataract surgeon offers a wide assortment of IOLs to improve patients’ distance, near and intermediate vision. By selecting a premium IOL, Mr. Barsam can also correct presbyopia and astigmatism if needed.
In addition to treating astigmatism with toric IOLs, Mr. Barsam can utilize multifocal or accommodating IOLs to correct distance and near vision simultaneously. Mr. Barsam is also a top provider of laser eye surgery, including all-laser, bladeless, wavefront-guided LASIK surgery, as well as a leading provider of other refractive surgeries.
