Frequently Asked Questions
When is laser vision correction performed?
Laser vision correction is performed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Allowed limits are myopia -8.0, astigmatism -6.0 and hyperopia +4.0.
Is laser vision correction possible for Keratoconus?
Topography-Guided TransPRK is indicated for Keratoconus. The procedure allows us to reshape the corneal surface, minimize myopia and astigmatism. In some cases complete spectacle independence is achieved, in others, vision is optimized to allow the patient adapt to glasses and contact lenses.
What is the suitable age for laser vision correction?
Laser vision correction is possible from 18 if myopia and astigmatism have been stable for the last few years and up to 55 years of age.
How is vision correction performed above the age of 55?
In patients over 55 years of age, so-called Refractive Lens Exchange is offered. This procedure allows the patient to get rid of the glasses, both for distance and reading.
