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 wish to live your life without glasses or contacts. Our experience, combined with advanced technology may help you achieve this 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 approximately -5.0 diopters
Higher refractive errors could be corrected through implantation of special contacts inside the eye.


Refractive errors
Emmetropia: An eye is named emmetrope or normal sighted whether or not this can make a sharp image from distant objects. All other conditions which vary from an emmetropia are really called refractive errors.

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

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia is a refractive error when it's possible to start to see the nearby objects more clear than the distant objects. In most cases for the reason that a person's eye is just too long or as the refractive power of a persons vision is simply too strong. It appears often in the time of puberty and progresses till the age of about 25 and remains through the entire very existence.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness a persons vision is just too short or even the refractive power of a person's eye is simply too weak. In the young age and according to the level of hyperopia one can possibly still see clear within the distance and nearby providing the accommodation or even the capability to focus still exists. As we age we lose our capability to focus first the nearby objects and later on the distant.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism causes blurring of images in any way distances. It exists usually from the period of birth and might be related to myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity of the cornea the bigger is the distortion in the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia can be a normal part in the aging process and may affect everybody in the ages of 40. As we age the natural lens in the eye loses its flexibility and gets to be more dens so the nearby objects still can't be viewed clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials out-of-the-way. Patients often complain that their arms are not of sufficient length anymore. At this stage, most people require reading glasses. In general presbyopia could be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision signifies that the dominant eye is corrected for that distant vision along with the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to make sure the individual tolerates monovision, this condition could be simulated with contact lenses.
