Basic criteria for laser refractive eye correction surgery
If you are 20-40 years old, your eyes are healthy, and your nearsightedness does not exceed -8 or your farsightedness +4 in diopters, notwithstanding the degree of astigmatism, there is high chance that you are a good candidate for permanent laser refractive error correction surgery. In very high diopters (nearsightedness more than -8 or farsightedness more than +4) and in presbyopia, other surgeries for improving the visual acuity are more proper, mostly surgeries of intraocular lens implantation.More about patient experiences

After two years of deciding I finally gathered enough courage and underwent laser refractive surgery. I was reading forums and decided for Morela Ophthalmologists. I was very satisfied with kindness and professionalism of the staff during all examinations and also during surgery. Before surgery I was really scared, but it is not as bad as it seems at first. The surgery does not last long and it is painless. After surgery I was in pain for few hours, but the next day the pain vanished. Right after surgery my sight was sharp. I can not describe my feelings…it was like I was reborn.

Thank you very much for the support before, during and after surgery. I feel like I was reborn, and I will gladly recommend you to others, since I was really satisfied. Thank you once again!

My vision is finally sharp day and night - from up close and far away. My vision is stable and after surgery it also improved (regeneration). I really enjoy flying very high. Thank you very much MO!

After a long “flirting” with the idea to undergo refractive surgery for refractive surgery, this February I realized it. Before, for about 15 years, I was using glasses and lenses. The surgery was performed with Lasek procedure. Before surgery I had -2,5 diopters but now my vision is 150% as they said during examination!! :) I am very happy with the results as I am with the staff-patient relation, and for this reason I would recommend such surgery to everyone who has problems with eyesight, since the life quality after refractive surgery improves extremely!! And good luck!

Fear of laser is completely unnecessary
Laser surgery for refractive error correction are being performed for more than 30 years and many researches proved that this is a safe method which ensures stable visual acuity on long term. We know several techniques for laser refractive error correction with which more than 50 millions of patients were treated all over the world. The statistics show that after this kind of surgery more than 98 percent of patients can see clearly looking distant objects without glasses.
