for Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia treatment...

The human eye functions as a perfect microcamera with inconceivable capabilities, in comparison with every high-technology human optical invention. Due to its small dimensions and its refractive properties it has great strength and adjustability.

This category includes nearly all these problems that can be treated with the use of eyesight-correcting glasses or/and contact lenses application.

Nowadays, many of these problems are being solved within the broader section of refractive surgery, with special laser and intraocular lenses use.

LASER REFRACTIVE SURGERIES, FOR THE CORRECTION OF AMETROPIAS (MYOPIA, HYPEROPIA, ASTIGMATISM) AND SOME CASES OF PRESBYOPIA
  • Depending on the chosen method (PRK, EPILASIK, LASEK, LASIK) the doctor prepares the surgical surface, or deeper the corneal stroma, in order to perform keratosmileusis with the EXCIMER LASER. In the case of LASIK, the doctor creates a corneal flap and uses a mechanical keratotome. Nowadays, the technique is implemented with the use of another Laser type, the FEMTOSECOND LASER

  • The EXCIMER LASER performs keratosmileusis, which usually lasts only several seconds for each eye

  • Depending on the method, the doctor can apply a protective therapeutic transparent contact lens for 4-7 days

  • After the end of the surgery the doctor instills eye drops and the patient leaves the clinic with instructions and medication, which include the instillation of eye drops for the next 7-30 days

  • The first post-operative examination is performed in the doctor’s practice the day following surgery
