Are you suitable for laser eye surgery?
We can treat 99% of patients who contact us. However, if you are not suitable for a surgical procedure, we will, unfortunately, have to reject you as a patient. Of course, we will do everything in our power to enable you to have better visual performance. With EyeLaser, the decision is in the hands of ophthalmologists, not opticians, as is often the case with eye laser chains.
No two eyes are alike. Our first priority is to determine the details of your vision and ametropia. To do this, our highly qualified team will use the most modern technologies to perform an examination.
There are different methods for the surgical correction of visual defects. Not everyone is suitable for a classic laser eye treatment. The good news is, we have many alternatives, such as lens implantation, which we can use to correct higher ametropia or thin or irregular corneas.
You will need to meet the following criteria for an eye operation:
- You must be of legal age, i.e. at least 18 years old.
- Your eyesight must have remained stable for at least a year.
- Your eye must be healthy with no signs of disease.
- You must be in good health.
If you meet these criteria, you are generally eligible for an eye laser treatment. We can determine which treatment method is best for you during a consultation and a preliminary examination. The following methods are recommended depending on your particular visual defect:
