This is how the operation works using the example of Femto LASIK

In the Femto LASIK technique first of all a flap is formed in the cornea using a femto second laser and folded over like a lid. Then, using the excimer laser, the inner part of the cornea is abraded so as to compensate the defective vision. Afterwards the flap in the cornea is again folded back. It attaches itself automatically and does not have to be sewn.

First Step:

Creating a flap

With the femto second laser the doctor creates a flap, a wafer-thin lid in the uppermost corneal layer. During this procedure intra-ocular pressure is increased and you are unable to see for a brief period.

Second Step:

Exposing the corneal layers

Afterwards the corneal cover, is opened up rather like a book cover so as to expose the corneal layer below. Then you can perceive your surroundings in a rather blurred manner.

Third Step:

Laser treatment

This is when the actual laser treatment begins. The lower layers of corneal tissue are gradually abraded until the desired result is achieved. On average treatment lasts only a few seconds.

Fourth Step:

The corneal cover is returned to the original position

The corneal cover is returned to the original position. It attaches itself automatically and does not need to be sewn. Anti-biotic drops prevent infection. The treatment is now completed. In most cases recovery occurs without complications, free of pain and rapidly.

This is how the operation works using the example of PRK/LASEK

First of all the uppermost layer of the cornea, the so-called corneal epithelium, is removed. Then with the excimer laser the centre of the cornea is abraded so as to compensate defective vision. Within a few days the epithelium regenerates beneath a contact lens and closes the superficial wound.

First Step:

Removing the epithelia / preparing the cornea surface

The procedure is simple and painless. The surgeon removes the upper cornea layer, known as the epithelia.

Second Step:

Laser treatment

The cornea tissue below the surface is gradually removed with the excimer laser until the desired result is achieved. The treatment usually takes no longer than a few seconds.

Third Step:

Attaching a lens

A contact lens is applied to protect the cornea surface. The epithelia regenerates beneath the contact lens in a few days and closes the surface wound. During this period you will experience a foreign body sensation and light to medium pain. The treatment is now complete.

This is how the operation works using the example of an artificial lens implantation.

Here the eye is opened at the edge of the cornea and an additional lens is implanted in the eye. This additional lens can be attached for instance to the iris, other models are placed behind the iris. After the artificial lens has been implanted, the cut either seals itself automatically or is closed with a stitch.

This is how the operation works using a replacement of the eye lens.

In the RLA technique the eye is opened at the edge of the cornea and in modern cataract operations the eye lens is removed and replaced by an artificial lens. The artificial lens either has a focus (single vision) or two or more focuses (multifocal lens). In some cases it can also help to correct astigmatism.
