I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Optegra Eye Hospital Manchester .
This package includes your appointments before and after surgery, as well as your surgery and mono-focal lenses. It means you won’t use up your out-patient benefit or receive any additional bills from your surgeon (or anaesthetist, if you need one) for eligible treatment.
Please call the Bupa Eye Care team to find out more about and to pre-authorise your treatment on 0345 600 7267.

Impact of squint on patients
I have 0% readmission rate, 0% post operative infection rate, 0% mortality.
The following are some patient testimonials-
“My quality of life was seriously affected by the squint. I used to fall many times holding onto something I thought was there. Having the operation was like a miracle. I was very happy with the outcome. I feel like a different person. I would recommend Mr Vishwanath 100% to anyone. He has changed my life.” – Anon.
“I am so grateful for the good news you passed to us. Please accept… [our] deep appreciations for the care you provided… The support of Swarna will never be forgotten and the next time we are in Manchester, we must come to express our gratitude. Thanks again.” Mashhoor.A, OMAN
“ I had constant double vision and my eye was inverted… I can comprehend the benefits those eye surgeries brought to my life. It’s because of you I have been given a provisional license so I can attempt to acquire a full driving license.” – K. Simpson
“I was told at my local hospital that the operation could not be performed without causing double vision due to my complicated sight in the eye, however Mr Vishwanath felt that he could operate successfully and this has proven to be a correct clinical judgement”.
