These patient information sheets are not intended to provide "latest news" on new treatments nor to imply that the author claims any especial expertise at providing the treatments described. They are provided simply as a means of helping patients to understand what treatment options are available for certain eye conditions and what they may experience if they undergo them.

It may be that you will read of something that you did not previously know about - if that is so then the aim of improving patient awareness has been achieved.

It is not possible to tell what treatment options are appropriate to individual patients without full clinical examination and knowledge of the case and so queries about information given here should be discussed with your own doctors.
