Cutting edge technologies and innovative medical solutions have been developed over time to address various ailments and problems concerning the eyes and the vision. Nevertheless, due to the fact that many ophthalmologic needs are not considered life-threatening or urgent, they are often subject to significant waiting times when covered by public health systems.
At GlobMed, we believe that people should not wait to achieve the best vision possible; time is of the essence, as eyes can deteriorate rapidly. The key difference between optimum vision and reduced vision often comes down to affordability.
For this reason, we work with world-leading ophthalmologists and optometrists in the UK and worldwide to bring the best on-demand solutions to improve our clients’ lives.
Vision is one of life’s greatest wonders.
Looking forward to a better sight?
Ophthalmology is the specialised field of medicine that encompasses all aspects of visual function, both in health and illness. Our eyes play an important role in how the brain sees and records things; in fact, many people consider vision as the sense they rely on the most.
Any visual abnormality or disruption can lead to a decrease in motor functions and hand-eye coordination, hence having a significant impact on your quality of life. For this reason, if you experience any type of health concern regarding your eyes, it is important that you visit an ophthalmologist.
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a condition that can reduce vision and potentially lead to loss of sight over the years. Laser photocoagulation is the preferred type of laser surgery for the eyes, used to AMD.Read More
The eye lens is clear in a healthy individual, leaving vision unobscured. However, a cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, affecting vision. Cataract surgery removes the natural lens of the eye that has developed an opacification (cataract), replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens.Read More
Diabetic retinopathy is a complication resulting from diabetes, where high blood sugar levels damage the back of the eye (retina). It can be treated using laser eye surgery or a vitrectomy. This procedure uses a tiny incision in the eye to remove blood from the middle of the eye (vitreous) and scar tissue that may be tugging on the retina.Read More
Glaucoma is a condition where fluid builds up at the front of your eye, causing large amounts of pressure resulting in optic nerve damage. It is one of the leading causes of blindness in people aged 60+ as often this condition presents gradually, so it is only noticed when patients notice a difference in vision, when it may have reached a more advanced stage.Read More
Refractive error surgery is used to correct blurred vision, often caused by various forms of refractive error (near-sightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism) by reshaping the cornea. It allows for improved light focus onto the retina, reducing the effects of a refractive error. It is commonly achieved through laser eye surgery.Read More
