A successful procedure begins with a complete patient consultation. It does take more than 1 hour to its completion. To measure the refractive error in your eyes and determine the best available treatment specifically for you, the doctor will examine and perform tests on your eyes such as:
- Refraction: to check the power of your eyes.
- Corneal topography: to map out the surface of your eyes.
- Corneal pachymetry: to know the thickness of the cornea.
- Intraocular pressure measuring.
- Anterior Pole examination: to rule out problems on the cornea, the lens or the anterior chamber.
- Posterior Pole examination: your eyes will be dilated by eyedrops to check the bottom of your eye (i.e. retina, macula and optic nerve).
- Biometry: to measure the length of the eye for calculating the power of the lens.
- Additional tests may be required depending on findings at consultation: macular OCT, Visual Field Test..
Remember to speak with us about your personal situation and considerations.
There is a wide range of correction possible:
- Short-sight up to -11 dioptres.
- Long-sight up to +5.00 dioptres.
- Astigmatism up to 7 dioptres.
- Presbyopia (need for reading glasses) can be corrected using Monovision system.
Treating both eyes with LASIK surgery takes around 8 minutes.
LASIK involves creation of a very thin flap of the cornea. Ultrathin LASIK (SBK or sub-Bowman keratomileusis) uses a precise automatic machine to create the flap with controlled precision and accuracy. This flap is folded back to expose the bed of the cornea, before the laser removes a precise, pre-set amount of corneal tissue. The flap is replaced, and is almost instantly held in place by the natural processes of the eye. In most cases, the flap will have effectively healed within a few hours.
Healing times for LASIK surgery are short: patients typically return to work and leisure activities within two or three days of their laser eye surgery. The improvement in vision is virtually instantaneous. And it is routine to treat both eyes with LASIK on the same day because it is a very safe procedure.
Some eye drops are prescribed and several check ups with doctors are usually scheduled during three months after surgery.
Sometimes, a surface ablation or PRK/LASEK is chosen instead of LASIK: for example, very thin corneas, antecedents of corneal ulcers or dry eyes… This is a simpler procedure (just laser removal of epithelium and laser ablation for dioptres elimination) but it takes more time to recover (several days). Usually, a contact lens for relieve pain is set at the end of the treatment and it is leaved there for a few days until healing.
Refractive lens surgery or RLE (refractive lens exchange) is a surgical procedure to replace the natural lens of the eye with an artificial one.
It is usually recommended when a patient is not regarded as a good candidate for laser eye surgery. Laser techniques are unsuitable for different reasons, such as being over 40-45 years old, having a cornea that is too thin, having eyes with great refractive error or cataracts.
The doctor will assess your suitability for different treatments in the initial consultation with you. After undergoing surgery your sight will greatly improved and you should have good unaided normal vision.
The procedure involves a short operation of around ten to fifteen minutes, usually carried out under topical (eyedrops) anaesthetic, which ensures the operation is painless.
Previously your eye is treated with eyedrops to dilate your pupil. During the operation, you will see some light and movement but you will not be able to see the surgery while it is happening, and you will not have to worry about keeping your eye wide open because a small clamp will hold your eyelids.
The natural lens (with or without a cataract) will be removed and replaced with a new lens. This will be done by using ultrasonic hand piece (phacoemulsification) to break the lens into pieces and then removing it through a small opening in your eye. The cut is so small that it does not even need stitches. Your new lens is then implanted into the same place that the natural lens occupied and is held by the original lens bag.
Once the operation is complete your eye will normally not be patched and you can rest for a while before your departure. Your normal daily life can be resumed immediately although you should avoid strenuous exercise and swimming for a couple of weeks. Your vision will improve over the first 24 – 48 hours.
The operation is designed to ensure you have good unaided distance vision and, if a premium multifocal lens is implanted, good close vision as well.

Phakic lenses: Visian ICL
The Visian ICL, also known as the Implantable Collamer® Lens, is a type of refractive procedure to help correct visual problems and is an attractive alternative to LASIK and other refractive procedures.
Visian ICL is the FDA (USA Food and Drug Administration) and European Community (CE) approved new generation in vision correction. This procedure creates options for a much wider range of prescriptions that can free you from glasses and contacts.
The Visian ICL is designed for the correction of moderate to high near-sight (-3.0 to –22.0 diopters, astigmatism and long-sight. It is indicated for young patients (under 45-50). In order to be sure that we use a Visian ICL with the most adequate power for your eye, your vision should be stable for at least a year before undergoing eye surgery.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis which means that the patient has surgery and leaves the same day. The procedure itself usually takes 8 minutes or less. The patient will need someone to drive them home on surgery day. A light, topical anesthetic is administered. There is very little discomfort during or after surgery. Some eye drops or medication may be prescribed and a visit with the doctor is usually scheduled the day after surgery. Your normal daily life can be resumed the day after although you should avoid strong exercise and swimming for two weeks
