Laser refractive surgery
At the Klinik am Casinoplatz all scientifically approved ways of modern refractive surgery are carried out with advanced technology.

In the industry of refractive surgery patients desire to live your life without glasses or lenses. Our experience, combined with advanced technology may help you accomplish that goal by correcting your refractive error.

Following refractive errors might be corrected using Laser surgery.

Myopia up to -8.0 diopters
Hyperopia up tp +5.0 diopters
Astigmatism around -5.0 diopters
Higher refractive errors might be corrected through implantation of special contacts inside the 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 vary from an emmetropia are so called refractive errors.

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

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia can be a refractive error when it's possible to begin to see the nearby objects more clear compared to the distant objects. In most cases this is due to the eye is too long or because the refractive power of a person's eye is way too strong. It appears often within the duration of puberty and progresses till the day of about 25 and remains through the whole life.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness a person's eye is way too short or perhaps the refractive power of the eye is too weak. In the young age and with respect to the degree of hyperopia you can still see clear within the distance and nearby providing the accommodation or even the capability to focus still exists. As we age we lose our ability to focus first the nearby objects and later on the distant.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism causes blurring of images in any way distances. It exists usually through the time of birth and could be linked to myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity in the cornea the greater may be the distortion in the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia is a normal part from the maturing and will affect everybody through the day of 40. As we age the natural lens inside eye loses its flexibility and becomes more dens so your nearby objects can no longer be viewed clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials even further. Patients often complain that their arms are certainly not good enough anymore. At this stage, most patients require reading glasses. In general presbyopia might be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision means that the dominant eye is corrected for your distant vision and the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to confirm that the sufferer tolerates monovision, this problem might be simulated with contact lenses.
