At Eira Hospital, we specialise in correcting short and long- sightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia and cataracts quickly and without queues. Surgery is always planned in advance on an individual basis, together with the hospital’s optician and the ophthalmologist. Expertise combined with the best modern technology makes the procedures quick and safe.
Consult the hospital optician and find out if you can correct your refractive error with laser vision correction or refractive lens exchange. During the pre-examination, your eyes are photographed and measured by the hospital optician using various instruments in order to work out which method is most appropriate for your eyes.
Thanks to the latest SMILE technology, it is possible to correct refractive errors without making the traditional incision in the cornea. The surface of the eye remains more intact and the risk of dry eyes is reduced. Studies show that the results of SMILE treatments are excellent.
Get rid of your progressive glasses with a refractive lens exchange! The refractive lens exchange is sometimes called a presbyopia surgery as it corrects near vision. But in addition to presbyopia, the refractive lens exchange also corrects distance vision and any astigmatism.
If you have problems with your vision or your eye looks different, you should consult an ophthalmologist. The ophthalmologist diagnosis and treats eye diseases and can investigate errors of refraction and have them corrected.
Do glasses no longer help? Does it feel like your vision is blurry despite having recently received new glasses? Have the ophthalmologist specialising in cataracts investigate whether cataract surgery could be for you. Cataracts can be removed, even before your vision has deteriorated markedly. Make an appointment for a comprehensive pre-examination.
At Eira Hospital, cataract surgery is also performed in return for HUS vouchers. The excess includes surgery with a quality monofocal lens, the ophthalmologist’s initial evaluation on the day of the surgery and investigations to choose the right lens.
Laser vision correction can be used to correct short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism. The operation is quick, painless and safe. The recovery is quick and you are able see without glasses on the day of the surgery itself. The treatment is always preceded by a detailed pre-examination that involves establishing which treatment method is most appropriate for your eyes.
