Refractive surgery

The whole range of refractive surgery is essentially aimed at treating myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. To a certain extent and with some limitations, these techniques can be used to improve and compensate for some degrees of tired eyes.

In the area of refractive surgery, we carry out the following procedures:

  • Lasik (Queratomileusis)
  • Phakic intraocular lens implants
  • Progressive lens implants in cataract surgery
  • Relaxing incisions and compressive sutures
  • Presbyopia surgery

Presbyopia surgery – Tired eyes

Clinically, tired eyes can only be remedied by wearing glasses or multifocal contact lenses (which are rarely used).

Conventional refractive surgeries (Lasik and intraocular lenses) are aimed at distance vision.

Finally, once multifocal intraocular lenses for phakic eyes – ICL – were developed, it became possible to insert a multifocal phakic lens in a procedure lasting approximately 10 minutes. This procedure avoids the only route that existed until now, which required the extraction of the lens (the same surgery as for cataracts), in order to insert lenses with a similar effect.
