A life without glasses or contact lenses – that is what many people, for whom visual aids sometimes mean considerable restrictions in their personal well-being or in their professional life. Existing myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness) with or without astigmatism can be corrected through various methods.
Refractive surgery means eye operations that change the overall refractive power of the eye and thus replace or significantly reduce the diopters of visual aids such as glasses or contact lenses. There are operations that change the refractive power of the cornea (e.g. Femto-LASIK, Trans PRK, lenticle extraction) and so-called lens procedures, which change the refractive power of the eye by additionally inserting, exchanging or removing the lens (phakic intraocular lenses, refractive lens exchange).
For different methods, your eyes have to meet different conditions (stability of ametropia, corneal thickness or anatomy of the eye, accompanying diseases,…) – not every eye is suitable for eye laser surgery.
I have a close cooperation with the renowned Eyelaser practice. Together with the laser specialists, we can find the most suitable method for you and your eye to enable you to live a life without glasses.
