Working in London can be quite stressful to your eyes. Certain eye problems may arise due to pollution, digital strain, among other factors.

11th January 2016 – Mr Hamada performed the 1st corneal neurotisation on an adult in the UK at Queen Victoria Hospital, this was with joint work from plastic surgeon colleague Mr Charles Nduka, and oculoplastic surgeon colleague Mr. Raman Malhotra. This surgery aims to bring back corneal sensation by taking nerves from other parts of the body and attaching them to the cornea. A nerve from the leg is used to connect nerves from the good eye to the diseased eye what we call nerve transplantation or corneal neurotisation.

November 2015 – AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology) – Mr Hamada was invited to this conference which is the largest of its kind in the world.

A girl with amblyopia watching one of the dichoptic movies on a passive 3D display while the child wore 3D cinema glasses. Movie scenes were separated into irregular blob-shaped areas that were complementary for the amblyopic and fellow eyes so that the entire scene could only be perceived if binocular vision was used to merge the parts of the picture shown to each eye. Images were presented at high contrast to the amblyopic eye and low-contrast image to the fellow eye. The contrast-imbalance overcomes suppression of the amblyopic eye and reveals binocular vision.

Contact lenses should only be given out by a prescription in the UK.
But novelty lenses can be bought and used without any safety checks being made on the eyes.
