3 TOP Vision Correction Methods
Ophthalmology is currently one of the fastest changing industries. New methods are constantly increasing, technology is improving. But how to know the methods offered.
ReLEx Smile diopter removal is the best you can use in the world of ophthalmology. Relex Smile is the latest and most perfect operating technique developed by scientists at Carl Zeiss. He’s fast, painless, maximally friendly and safe.
In this technique, the femtosecond Visumax 500 laser changes the curvature of the cornea by forming a microscopic lens in the cornea that is pulled out of the cornea through a 2mm microscopic section. The laser work itself takes only 25 seconds. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, the whole process is painless, associated with a minimum of complications, and vision is focused the next day. The method is suitable for myopia and myopic astigmatism (minus dioptres). This breakthrough method has also been used in Oftum ophthalmology clinics in Kosice, Prague and Astana (Kazakhstan) since 2015. Thanks to the precision and ease of use, surgeons cannot praise the work with the VisuMax laser system.
Wavefront Optimized Femtolasik 6D is recommended for patients with farsightedness (plus distant dioptres) and farsighted astigmatism.
Thanks to the combination of the top femtosecond laser VISUMAX 500kHz and and excimer laser EX500 6D it is possible to achieve accurate, safe and comfortable correction of the dioptric defect of the eye. After the surgery, the healing process is accelerated by special eye drops, while the patient should avoid contact sports. Vision stabilizes from a few hours to about 2 months after surgery.
The best known method of removing diopters among the public is the oldest first generation operation called surface operation (PRK, LASEK, No Touch PRK) using an excimer laser (Allegretto 200Hz, Allegretto 400Hz, EX500, MEL 80, MEL 90, Schwind, Nidek) .
This method was used commercially in 1989. Its essence is to change the curvature of the cornea of the human eye; This results in a correction of the dioptric defect and ultimately a change in the dioptric force of the entire optical system of the eye (change in refraction).
Its use is currently being abandoned due to more modern and less invasive methods.
Thanks to technical progress and a huge effort to provide its clients with the best services, OFTUM is ranked among the best eye clinics in the Czech Republic. With more than 5,000 treatments using the ReLEx Smile method, the surgeon MUDr. Juhás ranks among the TOP 5 specialists in Europe.
