Grand mother’s adventures with Lara Croft after Lens Surgery.
Bridget Odlin, who has a passion for video games, found that her poor eye sight often hampered her adventures with her action hero Lara Croft. Now, Mrs Odlin, who is 72, lands the knock out blow every time after the eye surgeon Mr Milind Pande, who is widely regarded as the finest eye surgeon in the UK, corrected her vision with pioneering Lens Replacement Surgery.
Mr Pande said: “The prime reason for carrying out lens replacement surgery is to improve vision without glasses. If we use the analogy of the camera for the eye, when the lens is scratched and dirty, we use the operation to change the lens and also refocus the camera. “The new lenses are designed to last at least 40 to 50 years so the longevity is very good. If you have lens exchange surgery, you will never need a cataract operation.”
Mrs Odlin underwent surgery at Spire Hospital in Anlaby on both eyes earlier this year. She said: “Mr Pande reassured me there would be no pain at all and all I could see was a kaleidoscope of colour. I didn’t feel a thing. “The difference was outstanding from the very next morning. I was in the shower and I could actually see.”
