Laser Technique

LASIK method
Corr. far-sightedness
An excimer laser therapy can be used to correct different kinds of visual defects.

Treatment of near-sightedness, PRK method:
With this method, a computer-controlled laser beam causes an exactly programmed flattening of the sensitive cornea. Extremely thin layers of tissue are treated with a precision of several thousands of a millimeter. This means that the surface of the cornea is changed without causing scars and without damaging the underlying tissue. So, near-sighted, far-sighted and astigmatic eyes can (re)gain their normal optical refraction. The patient's power of vision often improves after such an operation.The results of such a treatment are also therapeutic.

Treatment does not cause any pain and lasts only a few minutes. It is carried out on an out-patient basis and anaesthetizing eye drops are used.
