We understand how frustrating it can be to wait to see someone about your eyes. At the Sight Surgery we aim to deliver excellent ophthalmology care within the convenience of a GP surgery. We have imaging equipment on site to aid and improve diagnosis and are lucky to have a minor operation facility to enable small procedures to be done in house. Cataract surgery is done at a separate cataract centre, with pre and post operative appointments done at the Sight Surgery.

Paediatric Ophthalmology

Mrs Sarah Maling is a specialist in paediatric ophthalmology. After fellowships at Great Ormond Street Hospital she went onto become the lead for Paediatric Ophthalmology Service at Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust.

Mrs Maling manages all eye problems experienced by children. She specialises in : strabismus ( squint), refractive problems ( glasses), progressive myopia, cataracts, visual processing disorder, and allergic eye disease.

Mrs Maling is enthusiastic about teaching and trains fellows from the UK and abroad in squint surgery. She also has had the opportunity to travel to Mozambique to help train strabismus ( squint) surgeons.

Mrs Maling has a super specialist paediatric team comprising optometrists and orthoptists to help care for her patients.

The Effective Treatment of Eye Ailments

Sarah Maling and Mike Adams bring over 30 years of competent ophthalmic practice to The Sight Surgery. You can feel confident that you are in capable hands and trust us to provide the highest standards of tailored treatment for:



Cataract Procedure

Cataract surgery is commonest operation done as an outpatient procedure in the NHS. Mr Adams and Miss Maling co-lead the Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust Cataract Service which this year 2021 is the most productive Cataract Service in the country.  Mr Adams and Miss Maling both have training in all aspects of cataract surgery including multifocal lenses, extended range of focus lenses, mono-focal lenses and paediatric cataract surgery.


Mrs Maling understands how debilitating adult strabismus surgery is. Patients often tolerate a squint or double vision as they do not think it can be improved. Often a single short operation will resolve a patients issues long term.

Corneal Erosion Syndrome

Recurrent corneal erosion syndrome (RCES) occurs when the corneal epithelium – the surface layer of the cornea – fails to
bind properly to the layer underneath it. Initial treatment is to keep the eye lubricated, with drops or gel in the daytime and thicker ointment at bedtime. This protects the healing epithelium from the rubbing effect of the upper lid, and allows it to ‘bed down’ properly.

For those cases that fail to resolve, alcohol delamination and superficial keratectomy is the process of using ethanol to remove all the corneal epithelium, and then smoothing the underlying layer. It is performed in the operating theatre, usually under local anaesthetic. At the end of the procedure a bandage contact lens is left on the cornea to protect the eye and reduce post-operative discomfort.
