For private patients, SMTC offers a “multi focal” lens. For certain patients, this lens restores a full range of vision reducing the need for glasses, including reading glasses. These lenses are not available on the NHS but UKSH offers them to all private patients. It is important to remember that these new lenses are not suitable for all patients. Our examining surgeon will need to check your eye to let you know what is most appropriate for you. Furthermore, lenses are not always fully effective in removing the need for glasses, and a small proportion of patients will still need glasses for some activities.
