Laser refractive surgery
At the Klinik am Casinoplatz all scientifically approved types of modern refractive surgery are executed most abundant in advanced technology.

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

Following refractive errors could be corrected using Laser surgery.

Myopia approximately -8.0 diopters
Hyperopia up tp +5.0 diopters
Astigmatism around -5.0 diopters
Higher refractive errors could be corrected through implantation of special contacts in the eye.


Refractive errors
Emmetropia: An eye is known as emmetrope or normal sighted when it can make a sharp image from distant objects. All other conditions which alter from an emmetropia are very called refractive errors.

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

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia can be a refractive error when you are able begin to see the nearby objects more clear than the distant objects. In most cases for the reason that the eye is just too long or because the refractive power of a persons vision is way too strong. It appears often inside the time of puberty and progresses till the ages of about 25 and remains through the entire very existence.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness the eye is too short or perhaps the refractive power of a persons vision is just too weak. In the young age and with regards to the degree of hyperopia it's possible to still see clear inside the distance and nearby providing the accommodation or power to focus still exists. As we age we lose our capability to focus first the nearby objects and then the distant.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism causes blurring of images at all distances. It exists usually from the time of birth and may be linked to myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity of the cornea the larger will be the distortion with the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia is often a normal part from the aging process and may affect everybody from your ages of 40. As we age the natural lens inside eye loses its flexibility and grows more dens in order that the nearby objects cannot be observed clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials even further away. Patients often complain that their arms aren't long enough anymore. At this stage, most patients require reading glasses. In general presbyopia could be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision means that the dominant eye is corrected for that distant vision along with the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to state that the individual tolerates monovision, this problem may be simulated with contacts.
