Laser refractive surgery
At the Klinik am Casinoplatz all scientifically approved strategies to modern refractive surgery are carried out with the most advanced technology.

In the industry of refractive surgery patients need to live an existence without glasses or disposable lenses. Our experience, combined most abundant in advanced technology will help you accomplish that goal by correcting your refractive error.

Following refractive errors can be corrected using Laser surgery.

Myopia as much as -8.0 diopters
Hyperopia up tp +5.0 diopters
Astigmatism around -5.0 diopters
Higher refractive errors could be corrected through implantation of special contact lenses inside the eye.


Refractive errors
Emmetropia: An eye is named emmetrope or normal sighted whether it can create a sharp image from distant objects. All other conditions which differ from an emmetropia are so called refractive errors.

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

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia is often a refractive error when you can see the nearby objects more clear than the distant objects. In most cases it is because a persons vision is too long or as the refractive power of a person's eye is just too strong. It appears often within the time of puberty and progresses till the chronilogical age of about 25 and remains during the entire very existence.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness a person's eye is too short or even the refractive power of a persons vision is way too weak. In the young age and with respect to the level of hyperopia you can still see clear inside the distance and nearby so long as the accommodation or perhaps the ability 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 respect distances. It exists usually from the duration of birth and could be associated with myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity with the cornea the higher could be the distortion with the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia is really a normal part in the process of getting older and will affect everybody from the ages of 40. As we age the natural lens inside eye loses its flexibility and grows more dens so your nearby objects can't be viewed clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials further away. Patients often complain that their arms are not long enough anymore. At this stage, most patients require reading glasses. In general presbyopia could be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision implies that the dominant eye is corrected for the distant vision and also the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to make sure the sufferer tolerates monovision, this problem might be simulated with disposable lenses.
