Different eye surgery options

There are many types of eye surgery and treatment for various eye conditions. Please see below all of the eye treatments we offer at Practice Plus Group. Why not take a look at our Q&A video with Consultant Ophthalmologist Teresa Anthony which may answer some of the questions you might have about eye surgery.

Cataract surgery

Cataract treatment is a surgical procedure to remove the lens which has become cloudy and replace it with an artificial lens or IOL. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis and does not require an overnight stay in the hospital. Learn more about the signs of cataracts.

Laser procedures

Laser eye treatment used for glaucoma works by decreasing the amount of fluid within the eye. This works by either increasing the drainage of fluid out of the eye or reducing the amount of fluid that is made.

Laser treatment for post-cataract, capsular clouding, is a treatment that is used to improve the vision post-surgery. It is very common and helps to let light pass through the cloudy regions of the lens capsule that may develop after the initial cataract surgery.


Oculoplastics covers a wide range of surgical procedures that deal with the eye socket, eyelids, tear ducts and face. It also deals with the reconstruction of the eye and its associated structures.


Wet AMD is a painless eye condition that leads to the gradual loss of central vision due to abnormal blood vessel growth. It can be treated with medication and in some cases laser surgery.

Adult general ophthalmology

We treat a wide variety of eye conditions affecting all parts of the eye or eyelids. These can be medical conditions e.g. blepharitis, dry eye, retinal conditions or conditions needing surgery such as Entropion or Ectropion.

Glaucoma service

Glaucoma affects approximately 1 per cent of the whole population, it is a common eye disease which needs lifelong care, usually medical and occasionally surgical (or laser). Find out more about our glaucoma service.

Cataract surgery – thank you for the great care

Thank you to all the team at Devizes for the great care they gave my dad when he came in for his cataract operation in March. The team were all very caring and efficient looking after him very well. Thanks for the many follow-up phone calls by the team making sure he was followed up by his GP on his return home. Thanks again.

Cataract surgery – quick and well organised

The whole process was very quick and well organised from first contact to being discharged. The initial telephone contact allowed me to ask questions and be directed to the clinic which would best suit my needs. Everyone involved was very friendly and quickly put me at ease. I was always explained choices and not pressured into any response. My concerns were fully answered enabling me to feel confident to go ahead. I loved my consultants humour during the procedure keeping me involved and relaxed. My eyesight is amazing now with no need to wear glasses so I’m extremely satisfied.
