EIRA HOSPITAL HAS BEEN PROVIDING SERVICES TO HUS FOR MANY YEARS
With us, you can have cataract surgery without having to wait in a queue.
HOW DO I GET A VOUCHER?
You can obtain a voucher from HUS when the ophthalmologist has diagnosed a cataract that impairs your vision according to the HUS criteria. Your ophthalmologist gives you a referral for cataract surgery for HUS, after which you are sent home with a voucher. With the voucher, you can quickly and easily have your cataract surgery performed at Eira Hospital.
COMPREHENSIVE SERVICES AND CATARACT SURGERY FOR OVER 15 YEARS
Eira Hospital is an esteemed, Finnish-owned, modern bilingual hospital and medical centre that has been offering a variety of medical and healthcare services for over 110 years. We offer a variety of surgical services and investigations; we have been performing cataract surgery for over 15 years. We take individual needs into account when caring for or patients. Our values include creating a long-term and safe care relationship with our patients.
Our painless cataract surgery utilises the latest technology and is performed under local anaesthetic. Eira has the most modern equipment in Finland and the apparatuses have been developed to be as safe as possible with respect to the eyes. The low energy apparatuses also ensure a rapid recovery following the surgery. At Eira, over 99 per cent of cataract operations have a good outcome.
During cataract surgery, a hydrophobic monofocal artificial lens is implanted into the eye. The lens generally provides good distance vision.
CHARGES IN CONNECTION TO VOUCHERS:
The patient pays an excess that is only 94 € per eye. The price is the same as would be levied by HUS.
The excess includes cataract surgery with a quality monofocal lens.
SPECIAL LENSES AND OTHER SUPPLEMENTARY SERVICES
If it is possible to achieve better vision with a multifocal lens or a lens that corrects astigmatism, the patient can pay for this themselves if they wish. In which case, get in contact with one of our hospital opticians by calling 09 1620 300, Mon–Thu 9–15 or Fri 9–14. The patient can also request to be monitored by an anaesthetist during the operation.
You can spend the night in Eira Hospital’s in-patient unit and recover following the surgery under observation. In which case, we take care of starting your course of eye drops and monitor your condition until the following morning. The special price for an overnight stay following cataract surgery is EUR 200 per night, which includes nursing care, dinner, supper and breakfast.
Any supplementary services are paid for by the patient themselves prior to discharge:
- special lens
- anaesthetist care
- overnight stay in the in-patient unit
