What is Cataract Surgery?
Professor Moore discusses your cataract surgery treatment options.
At Cathedral Eye Clinic, our highly skilled Ophthalmic Surgeons provide patients with the confidence of knowing that they receive full and comprehensive clinical care. Led by Professor Moore, specialists in refractive cataract surgery combine their expertise in pre-operative assessment and surgical skills to ensure the greatest chances of achieving an ideal surgical and refractive outcome after cataract surgery.
Years of research and exceptional audit data have led Cathedral Eye Clinic to introduce artificial intelligence into biometry examinations. This cutting-edge technology aims to enhance the ability to predict refractive outcomes with even greater accuracy, further assisting in improving surgical results.

This team is equipped to handle any immediate cataract complications and subsequent issues that may arise months or years after surgery.
