LONDON, December 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Optimax, the UK's longest-established vision correction specialist, have introduced a new IOL (Lens Implant) theatre at their Southampton clinic, meeting local demand for a provider offering a full range of eye procedures.
The new facility, which opened on December 1, broadens the range of eye treatments available at the Kings Park Road clinic, offering procedures that can help those unsuitable for laser surgery (ICL treatment), as well as those over 40 who have lost the ability to focus on near objects (RLE). This age group accounts for 50% of Hampshire residents.*
Among the advanced lenses options on offer at Optimax Southampton is the new Symfony Lens, which currently has limited availability in the UK. The new lens offers a smooth range of vision at all distances, and offers significant improvements compared to other lenses.
Mr Amir Hamid, Medical Director at Optimax, recently introduced the lens on BBC News South East, telling the programme:
'The Symfony lens gives you the all-round ability to function visually as you would have done when you were much younger, with independence from spectacles.'
Optimax has now implanted 250 Symfony lenses, more than any other UK clinic.
The new theatre increases Optimax's IOL treatment locations to 10 nationwide.
