Before surgery

Is LASIK suitable for me?

LASIK allows for the correction of refractive errors from up to +4 to -8 dioptres (in some cases up to -10dpt.) and astigmatism up to 5 dioptres. For the final assessment, an examination and consultation are required.

How is LASIK performed?

LASIK is performed as an outpatient procedure and on both eyes in in quick succession. Surgery on both eyes takes only a few minutes, with the actual laser procedure taking just a few seconds. After surgery you can recover in our comfortable recovery room for long as you like, while being looked after by our staff.

How long will I be off work?

You won’t have to take time off, but you should take it easy for the next 1-2 days and don’t do too much work on the computer. You should also wait a few days before going back to your exercise routine. Your vision will already be very good the day after LASIK.

What risks are involved?

Although the refractive surgery procedures used today have a very low overall risk of serious complications, it cannot be completely excluded. The risk of vision being worse after the procedure than before, is very low. For example: Less than 1% of all LASIK patients experience complications. Your doctor will inform you about your individual risk in the consultation.

Are there long-term studies?

The first successful procedure (“keratomileusis”) for the correction of vision defects, was developed 40 years ago. This laid the foundation for the PRK and LASIK procedures used today. The LASIK method has been carried out since 1991, and is today a recognised and established ophthalmological procedure. Both the technique and the devices used are being continuously improved.
