Mr James Myerscough
BM MSc FRCOphth
Mr James Myerscough is an experienced Consultant Ophthalmologist specialising in corneal transplant and complex cataract surgery; and has performed thousands of procedures.
Following specialist surgical training in laser-assisted cataract surgery at Cambridge University Hospital, he went on to work in one of the most prestigious corneal transplantation centres in Europe, in Italy, before returning to the UK.
James knows just how personal important decisions relating to our eyesight are, and, for that reason, takes time in clinic to thoroughly understand each patient’s visual experience and requirements before discussing a tailored treatment plan.
How many procedures has the Surgeon performed on eyes with the same prescription as your own and what is the success rate?
Your prescription will be either short or longsighted, with or without astigmatism and your age may also have a bearing on the outcome. The thickness of your cornea and anatomical dimensions and health of the eye will also need to be taken into consideration. Many laser units have experience of 'routine' prescriptions. Professor Aggarwal and Mr Myerscough have successfully treated complex prescriptions as well as 'routine' refractive error. Both surgeons aim for 100% patient satisfaction and hence enhancements are given when deemed appropriate.
For specific information relating to numbers of procedures please contact the clinic as this information changes daily. Results should be considered based on the complexity of the procedure and expected outcome versus the end result. Results to date exceed many leading clinics and a procedure will not be considered unless the expected result offers a significant improvement.
