Minimal Operation.
Maximal Sharpness.

Good vision is an essential part of your quality of life. Glasses or contact lenses may help if your vision is impaired, but they are often restrictive. At our clinic we offer state-of-the-art laser treatment to improve your vision. Our completely painless outpatient procedure will correct long/short-sightedness and/or astigmatism in a matter of minutes. Innovative laser technology to give you unimpaired vision.

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.

Areas of application: short-sightedness up to -8 dioptres, fart-sightedness up to about + 5 dioptres, astigmatism up to about 5 dioptres.

Side effects: in the first few hours after LASIK treatment, vision is reduced and there is usually moderate discomfort. Possible, but generally less frequent side effects comprise a partial regression of the operation success within the first weeks, a worsening of vision in twilight, perception of halos and silhouettes around sources of light, in particular in the case of patients with a wide pupil. Moreover, there can be a temporary increase in dryness of the eye.

LASEK or PRK

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.

Areas of application: short-sightedness up to -6 dioptres, far-sightedness up to + 3 dioptres, astigmatism up to 5 dioptres.

Side effects: the first few days after treatment with LASEK, vision is reduced and there is usually moderate discomfort (foreign body sensation) which can be treated with eye drops or in some cases a light pain-killer. Possible, but less frequent side effects comprise a superficial formation of a scar on the cornea, partial regression of the operation success within the first weeks or months, a worsening of vision in twilight, perception of halos and silhouettes around sources of light, in particular in the case of patients with a wide pupil. Moreover, there can be a temporary increase in dryness of the eye.

Artificial lens implantation in addition to the patient’s own lens

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.

Areas of application: short-sightedness from about -6 dioptres, far-sightedness from about + 3 dioptres, astigmatism up to 6 dioptres.

Side effects: in rare cases the following have been described: a sudden rise in pressure of the inner eye, damage to the rear surface of the cornea, distortion of the pupil, clouding of the patient’s own lens, as well as a chronic inflammation of the eye.

Replacement of the eye lens by an artificial lens to compensate defective vision

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.

Areas of application: high degree of short-sightedness from about -6 dioptres, far-sightedness from +1 dioptre AND at the same time existing presbyopia.

Side effects: with single-vision artificial lenses, reading glasses are usually necessary. With multifocal artificial lenses there can be a reduction in twilight vision or the perception of halos around light sources and this can cause the effect of dazzle. In individual cases, following RLA treatment, there can be a rise in eye pressure, clouding of the cornea or inflammation.
