Pre-examination for laser vision correction and refractive lens exchange
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.
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.
ReLEx SMILE laser vision correction
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.
Refractive lens exchange
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.
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.
