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

In the field of refractive surgery patients wish to live an existence without glasses or disposable lenses. Our experience, combined with advanced technology can help you accomplish this goal by correcting your refractive error.

Following refractive errors may be corrected using Laser surgery.

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


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

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

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia is often a refractive error when you are able understand the nearby objects more clear compared to distant objects. In most cases this is due to a person's eye is too long or for the reason that refractive power of the attention is simply too strong. It appears often in the period of puberty and progresses till the ages of about 25 and remains throughout the expereince of living.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness the eye is too short or the refractive power of a person's eye is way too weak. In the young age and according to the a higher level hyperopia one can possibly still see clear in the distance and nearby providing the accommodation or even the power 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 way distances. It exists usually in the duration of birth and can be connected with myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity in the cornea the bigger is the distortion in the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia is a normal part from the process of aging and may affect everybody from the age of 40. As we age the natural lens inside eye loses its flexibility and grows more dens in order that the nearby objects still can't remain visible clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials further away. Patients often complain that their arms usually are not good enough anymore. At this stage, most patients require reading glasses. In general presbyopia might be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision implies that the dominant eye is corrected to the distant vision and also the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to concur that the individual tolerates monovision, this condition can be simulated with disposable lenses.
