Basic criteria for refractive vision correction laser surgery
If you are 20-40 years old, have healthy eyes and your nearsightedness does not exceed -8 or your farsightedness over +4 in dioptre, notwithstanding the degree of astigmatism, there is a high probability that you are a good candidate for permanent refractive vision correction laser surgery. In the case of very high dioptres (nearsightedness over -8 or farsightedness over +4) and in the case of presbyopia, other surgeries for improving visual acuity are more suitable. These surgeries primarily involve intraocular lens implantation.More about patient experiences

After two years of deciding, I finally gathered enough courage to undergo refractive laser surgery. I read forums and decided to go with Morela Ophthalmologists. I was very satisfied with the friendliness and professionalism of the staff during all examinations and also during surgery. I was very scared before the surgery, but it’s not as bad as it first seems. The surgery doesn’t last long and isn’t painful. After surgery, I had quite a lot of pain for a few hours, but the pain disappeared on the next day. My eyesight was already very sharp immediately after surgery. I can’t describe the feeling…it’s like being born again.

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

My vision is finally sharp day and night - from up close and from a distance. My vision is stable and it continued to improve after surgery (regeneration). I especially enjoy being at great heights, while flying. Infinite thanks MO!

After long ’flirting‘ with the idea to undergo refractive surgery in order to eliminate my dioptre, I underwent treatment last February. Before the surgery, I had been using glasses and contact lenses for about 15 years. The surgery was performed using the LASEK procedure. My dioptre was -2.5 before surgery but now my vision is 150%, just as they said it would be during the examination!! I am very happy with the results as well as with the staff’s attitude towards patients, so I would recommend this procedure to anyone who has problems with their vision. Because quality of life improves dramatically after refractive surgery!! Good luck!
Average visual acuity without eyeglasses before and after surgery
There is no need to fear lasers
Laser surgeries for refractive vision correction have been performed for over 30 years and many studies have proven that this is a safe method which ensures stable visual acuity for the long term. We are familiar with several techniques for laser refractive vision correction that have already been used to treat over 50 million patients all over the world. Statistics indicate that following this type of surgery, over 98 percent of patients can see clearly when looking at distant objects without glasses.
