How successful is the Laser Eye Correction?
Due to great improvements in the field of laser vision correction, the visual outcomes can be predetermined with great precision, especially in Femtolasik. Therefore we can achieve excellent results. The results are permanent and future deterioration is rare. Deterioration of the eyesight can occur due to other reasons such as pregnancy, progressive myopia and other diseases of the eye that are not related to the laser correction such as cataracts and age macular retinal degeneration.

Will it hurt ?
We anesthetize your eyes with eye drops before the laser vision correction, so there is no pain during the surgery.
There is no pain after Femtoasik, SMILE and Presbyond treatment.
For 2-5 days after the surface treatment (PRK) days mild pain, tingling, sensitivity to light may occur. Excessive tears and sensation of foreign body may also be present together with inability to open the eyes. These symptoms can be relieved with analgesic tablets and eye drops.
Is it possible for my eyes to deteriorate ?
In rare cases, the vision may deteriorate due to abnormal wound healing (in PRK). Should this occur, a change of medication is done and if that does not work, re-treatment might be necessary.
What happens when I get older ?
After the age of 40 – 45 the lens of the eye loses its elasticity, and reading glasses will be necessary. People over 40 having low level myopia should consider presbyond blended vision correction or refractive lens exchange, so that they can read without glasses in older age. In some occasions however, the need for reading glasses might arise.
If the vision deteriorates, is it possible to repeat the surgery ?
In general, yes, re-treatment is possible, but it depends on the thickness of the cornea, and the degree of the treated diopters.
What are the risks and what complications may occur after the surface and flap laser treatments ?
Please refer to the risks and complications here.
When will I see clearly?
Postoperative visual acuity depends on the type of surgery. It takes 1-4 weeks in case of surface treatment (PRK), and one day for FemtoLasik, and SMILE. For Presbyond, it might take a bit longer for the eyes to adjust to the blended vision.
Will both of my eyes be operated at the same time?
In both types of laser vision correction, flap or surface, both eyes are operated at the same time.
Am I allowed to give birth naturally after the surgery?
Yes, the laser treatment does not affect the way of delivery.
