Laser refractive surgery
At the Klinik am Casinoplatz all scientifically approved ways of modern refractive surgery are carried out most abundant in advanced technology.

In the field of refractive surgery patients would like to live your life without glasses or contacts. Our experience, combined with the most advanced technology can assist you accomplish this goal by correcting your refractive error.

Following refractive errors might be corrected using Laser surgery.

Myopia up to -8.0 diopters
Hyperopia up tp +5.0 diopters
Astigmatism up to -5.0 diopters
Higher refractive errors might be corrected through implantation of special lenses within the eye.


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

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

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia is really a refractive error when you are able see the nearby objects more clear than the distant objects. In most cases simply because a person's eye is too long or because the refractive power of a person's eye is too strong. It appears often in the time of puberty and progresses till the chronilogical age of about 25 and remains throughout the very existence.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness a person's eye is just too short or perhaps the refractive power of the attention is simply too weak. In the young age and with regards to the level of hyperopia you can still see clear within the distance and nearby providing the accommodation or 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 whatsoever distances. It exists usually through the duration of birth and can be linked to myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity of the cornea the higher is the distortion with the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia is often a normal part in the aging process and will affect everybody through the ages of 40. As we age the natural lens inside eye loses its flexibility and grows more dens so the nearby objects can't be seen clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials even further. Patients often complain that their arms are not of sufficient length anymore. At this stage, most sufferers require reading glasses. In general presbyopia may be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision ensures that the dominant eye is corrected to the distant vision along with the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to state that the individual tolerates monovision, this issue could be simulated with lenses.
