Laser refractive surgery
At the Klinik am Casinoplatz all scientifically approved methods of modern refractive surgery are executed with the most advanced technology.

In the field of refractive surgery patients need to live a life without glasses or disposable lenses. Our experience, combined most abundant in advanced technology can help you do this goal by correcting your refractive error.

Following refractive errors may be corrected using Laser surgery.

Myopia up to -8.0 diopters
Hyperopia up tp +5.0 diopters
Astigmatism approximately -5.0 diopters
Higher refractive errors can be corrected through implantation of special contact lenses inside eye.


Refractive errors
Emmetropia: An eye is known as emmetrope or normal sighted whether or not this can certainly produce a sharp image from distant objects. All other conditions which change from an emmetropia are extremely called refractive errors.

The most significant refractive errors are Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia.

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia can be a refractive error when you are able see the nearby objects more clear as opposed to distant objects. In most cases simply because a person's eye is too long or since the refractive power of a persons vision is simply too strong. It appears often in the period of puberty and progresses till the ages of about 25 and remains during the entire entire life.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness a person's eye is just too short or even the refractive power of a persons vision is too weak. In the young age and according to the a higher level hyperopia one can still see clear within the distance and nearby so long as the accommodation or perhaps the ability to focus still exists. As we age we lose our capacity to focus first the nearby objects and later the distant.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism causes blurring of images whatsoever distances. It exists usually through the duration of birth and can be linked to myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity from the cornea the greater could be the distortion with the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia is really a normal part from the process of getting older and will affect everybody from the chronilogical age of 40. As we age the natural lens inside eye loses its flexibility and grows more dens so the nearby objects can't be viewed clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials even further. Patients often complain that their arms are not of sufficient length anymore. At this stage, most people require reading glasses. In general presbyopia could be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision implies that the dominant eye is corrected to the distant vision and the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to state that the sufferer tolerates monovision, this condition may be simulated with contacts.
