THE PRE-EXAMINATION IS COMPREHENSIVE

During the initial evaluation the following is measured using a range of instruments:

  • thickness shape and topography of the cornea
  • visual acuity (minus and plus values and astigmatism)
  • intraocular pressure
  • optical tomography of the retina (OCT)

On the basis of these measurements, the optician can determine whether laser vision correction or refractive lens exchange can be performed and whether you can get rid of your glasses. If the examination indicates that you have an eye disease, you are recommended to consult an ophthalmologist for further examination. Set aside one hour for the pre-examination  The hospital optician performs the initial evaluation, but the ophthalmologist always decides on the treatment method and the patient always meets the ophthalmologist prior to the treatment.

FOR WHOM ARE LASER VISION CORRECTION AND REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE SUITABLE?

Laser vision correction is performed on people who are over 18 years of age. The choice of either laser vision correction or refractive lens exchange depends on strength and eye structure.

With refractive lens exchange, both those who are short-sighted and those who are long-sighted can get rid of their glasses. Make an appointment for the optician’s initial evaluation and we will work out whether one of these treatments is appropriate for your eyes. You can also make an appointment with the optician if you have been diagnosed with a cataract, want to have it removed and want to get more information about the lens options.

We recommend that people over the age of 60 have their eyes examined by an ophthalmologist, who investigates their optical health and whether refractive lens exchange is appropriate. If the ophthalmologist detects the beginnings of a cataract or you suspect this yourself, it is preferable to make an appointment for the ophthalmologist’s initial evaluation for cataract surgery, where you will meet the surgeon who will perform the procedure and find out more about different lens options.

LASER VISION CORRECTION IS NOT PERFORMED IF:

  • you are under 18 years of age
  • you are pregnant, breastfeeding or it is less than six months since you gave birth
  • you have an eye disease, e.g. cataract
  • you have a disease that affects vision (diabetes, rheumatism)

Ei enää silmälaseja!

Muotikuvauksia työkseen tekevä Aila Stenius kertoo koko homman tulleen vuosien mittaan melko kalliiksi, sillä näyttävien kehysten lisäksi myös linssien piti olla erityisen hyvät. Ei saa tulla heijastuksia tai häikäistymisiä kirkkaissa valoissa.

Uusi leikkaus sopi minulle

Emma Piiriselle tehtiin Suomen ensimmäinen SMILE-toimenpide viime kesänä. Emman elämää hankaloittava taittovirhe korjattiin uudella läpättömällä laserleikkauksella. Silmäleikkaus jännitti etukäteen, mutta piilolasien käyttö oli silmien kuivumisen vuoksi hankalaa ja kallis silmälasihankinta oli taas edessä.
