THE BEST TECHNOLOGY AND EXPERIENCED OPHTHALMOLOGISTS

Thanks to the new SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) technology, it is possible to correct refractive errors without making a traditional flap in the eye. Instead, a disk, i.e. a “lenticule”, is made in the cornea by transmitting laser impulses in two layers. The lenticule is removed through a small incision and the cornea’s outer layer thus remains more intact, when compared with the traditional flap surgery. The risk of dry eyes following the procedure is significantly lower with the SMILE method. Studies show that the results of a SMILE procedure are excellent in terms of both correction of the refractive error and the recovery.

The first SMILE procedures in Finland have been performed at the Eira Eye Clinic.

The SMILE procedure is suitable for most people over 18 years of age, who use minus glasses, i.e. who are nearsighted and see distant objects blurry.
We assess whether the SMILE method is the best option for you in conjunction with the comprehensive pre-examination. 

The SMILE procedure enables you to get rid of your minus glasses, but it does not prevent you from needing reading glasses later on around the age of 45. The need for reading glasses comes with age no matter if you’ve had surgery or not. Read more

 

COMPREHENSIVE PRE-EXAMINATION WITH THE HOSPITAL OPTICIAN

The laser vision correction process begins with a thorough initial evaluation during which our hospital optician charts your eyes’ health status and measures the astigmatism, intraocular pressure, your eyes and makes a corneal map of your eyes. The optical tomography of the retina (OCT) is performed when necessary.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE OPTICIAN’S pre-examination

Come in and find out if SMILE laser vision correction is appropriate for your eyes. During the pre-examination, your eyes are photographed and measured by the hospital optician using various instruments in order to work out which treatment method is most appropriate for your eyes.

Contact lenses cannot be used for one week prior to the initial evaluation or the surgery. During the initial evaluation, you are given eye drops that cause your pupils to dilate, which temporarily impairs your near vision and makes your eyes more sensitive to light. The pre-examination takes one hour.
