Refractive error correction laser surgery

APPOINTMENTS Free informative consultation with the doctor

Imagine that you open your eyes and you can see. That you don't have to catch your glasses in a little more dynamic movement of your head or search for the eyeglass cleaner cloth to wipe the sweat on lenses in the middle of the most intense sport action. With a completely painless surgery we can in 15 minutes ensure you almost a perfect vision and enable the independence from lenses and glasses.

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.

    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.

    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!

    With a short test you can verify by yourself if you are one of those who are probably good candidates for laser refractive error correction.

     
  • Detailed examination before surgery
    Duration: 1 hour

    If you correspond to conditions for laser surgery, before performing surgery we will perform a detailed examination of the eyes and its fundus. In this way we exclude the presence of eventual diseases or alterations of the eye where laser surgery is not recommendable, and perform measurements which are necessary for surgery performance. On the basis of the results of the examinations and the conversation about expectations about the eyesight, we suggest the most suitable procedure for you, and we explain in details the course of the procedure. We will present the advantages of the individualized Wavefront laser correction and the difference between the most frequently used techniques LASIK and LASEK. We are aware of the importance of the decision for such procedure and the particularity of every individual. We find the individual treatment of every single person very important.

     
  • Surgical treatment
    Duration: 15 minutes

    The whole duration of laser refractive error correction is 10 to 15 minutes and it is completely painless. We can correct the refractive error with fast impulses of a just 0,8 mm wide cold laser ray, produced by the excimer laser. With this technology we can very precisely in just 10-12 seconds remodel the cornea. Laser follows the eye movement and adapts, if the movements are too big, the procedure is automatically stopped, and continues when the eye calms again. For this reason, the fear that something would go wrong if you move during the procedure, jerk or sneeze, is completely unnecessary. After surgery you will get all necessary medications and instructions how to take them. Our doctors are in the first few days after surgery available on telephone 24 hours a day. We find the simple and quick doctor availability very important, because it gives the patient a feeling of safety and it calms them down.

     
  • After - surgery examination
    Duration: 1 hour

    In the first days after surgery, reading for a long period of time, working on computer or watching television have to be avoided. It is possible that you will be a little more sensitive to strong light, the light may dazzle you, and lacrimation of the operated eye could be present. Vision acuity after surgery improves in different periods of time, this depends also on the type of surgery performed. In LASIK method, vision can return after few hours, in LASEK method it lasts a little longer. The first after-surgery examination is performed between the first and the fourth day after surgery. We always modify the after-surgery examination in the way that we follow your recovery, which ensures your safety and the optimal result of refractive error correction.
