Your guide to cataracts and cataract surgery

Introducing our cataract booklet

Providing your customers with the best possible care is a priority for Newmedica, as we know it is for you. We recently undertook a significant research survey to understand how we can further enhance and personalise our service. Customers shared how shocked, anxious, and frightening being told having a cataract is, and how fearful they were about what happens next.

As a result, we’ve created a new cataract booklet for optometrists to use in conversations with patients, which details:

What a cataract is

The procedure to replace cataracts

Information about each stage of the care journey

What to do before and after surgery

Other patients’ experiences

Frequently asked questions.

Our cataract booklet

If you’d like to find out how to order printed copies of out cataract booklet, please contact your local Newmedica clinic.

You can also download and view a digital version of the booklet here.

Supporting you and your customers

As Newmedica was founded by a former eyecare patient and leading ophthalmology consultant, we’ve a different perspective than other providers.

We’re focused on providing exceptional clinical care, we also know that patients receive the best outcomes when we work in partnership with their optometrist.

We’ll continue to support you and your customers, through the latest clinical information, education materials, like our new cataract booklet, and updates on patient treatments and any ongoing care needed.

Getting referred to Newmedica

If you think you have an eye condition, you should see your optician or GP for a detailed assessment. They’ll go through all the options available and tell you where you can have your treatment.

The referral process will differ slightly depending on whether you want to be an NHS or private patient. You’ll find all the information you need on our NHS and private patient pages.

Couldn't be any easier. Walked in at 8.30am and after filling out the paperwork I went to have my eye treatment. Started with eye drops, then on to the operation, where everything was so clean, then walked out the door at 10am and home to rest. If you need cataract surgery, go to this company.
