The information outlined below on common conditions and treatments is provided as a guide only and it is not intended to be comprehensive. Discussion with Misha is important to answer any questions that you may have. For information about any additional conditions not featured within the site, please contact us for more information.

Cataract surgery involves replacing the cloudy lens inside your eye with an artificial one. It has a high success rate in improving your eyesight.

Misha regularly performs cataract surgery to correct short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatism.

An intravitreal injection is an injection of a drug into the vitreous body (the jelly in the eye). It is given through the sclera (the white of the eye). The aim of intravitreal therapy is to improve or stabilise your vision.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common condition that affects the middle part of your vision. It usually first affects people in their 50s and 60s. It does not cause total blindness, but it can make everyday activities like reading and recognising faces difficult. It can manifest as both dry AMD and wet AMD.

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes, caused by high blood sugar levels damaging the back of the eye (retina). It can cause blindness if left undiagnosed and untreated. However, it usually takes several years for diabetic retinopathy to reach a stage where it could threaten your sight.

Retinal vascular diseases are conditions affecting the circulation at the back of the eye, which is called the retinal circulation. These conditions include diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion.

Central serous chorioretinopathy is when fluid builds up under the retina. This can distort vision. The fluid leakage comes from a layer of tissue under the retina, called the choroid. Central serous chorioretinopathy usually affects just one eye at a time, but both eyes can be affected at the same time.

Uveitis is inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, called the uvea or uveal tract. It can cause eye pain and changes to your vision. Most cases get better with treatment – usually steroid medicine. But sometimes uveitis can lead to further eye problems such as glaucoma and cataracts.

The sooner uveitis is treated, the more successful treatment is likely to be.

Some eye problems don’t fit neatly into one of our other services, so Misha’s general clinics are an opportunity for her to make a full assessment and decide on the best treatment for you. You might also be assessed here if you have more than one eye condition.

In her general ophthalmology clinic, Misha diagnoses and treats all conditions of the eye, including:

  • cataract
  • corneal and external eye
  • eyelid disorders
  • glaucoma
  • lacrimal
  • medical retina
  • meibomian cyst
  • metabolic eye disease
  • metabolic eye, strabismus, ocular motility and neuro
  • minor operations
  • suspected cancer
  • vitreo-retinal

We are able to accept referrals for any of these conditions. If you are interested in seeing us, please discuss a referral with your optometrist, GP or other healthcare professional.

In an emergency we may be able to see you without a referral.

Dots and lines (floaters) or flashes of light in your vision are common. They’re not usually serious. Lots of people, particularly older people, get floaters and flashes. They’re usually caused by a harmless process called posterior vitreous detachment (PVD), where the gel inside your eyes changes.

The natural lens of the eye is enclosed in a clear, cellophane like membrane called the lens capsule. During cataract surgery the front of the capsule is opened.  The cloudy lens inside the capsule is removed.  In most cases, the back of the capsule is left in one piece, and a plastic lens implant is put in place in front of the capsule. This capsule is normally clear like a glass window.

In a small number of patients, the capsule thickens and becomes a little opaque. This stops the light reaching the back of the eye. If this happens, you may notice a gradual decrease in vision, problems with glare, or things might look slightly hazy.  The capsule thickening does not damage the eye in any way; it merely makes the sight fuzzy.  Capsule thickening (also called “after cataract”) can happen at any time after your cataract operation from a few months to years. The aim of this laser procedure is to make a hole in the thickened lens capsule (called as laser capsulotomy).
