Laser diopter correction is a short and painless intervention that lasts only 5 minutes for each eye, a little longer than the duration of your favorite 🎶song🎶.
Make a change for yourself this January. It’s time to give yourself the clear vision you have long wanted.
Candidates for this intervention are:
- Persons from 18 to 40 years old;
- Persons with diopters of +4 to -10 and cylinders (astigmatism)*;
- Persons with stable diopters for at least one year;
- Persons that do not have other eye conditions that are a contraindication for laser diopter correction.**
*In certain cases, a higher diopter can be corrected than the stated one, if according to the other criteria that are checked at the examination, the most appropriate method for correcting the diopter in the patient is the laser diopter correction.
** Other eye conditions in which laser diopter correction is not recommended: keratoconus, cataract, age-related diopter (presbyopia), bleeding in the eye.
How to get laser diopter correction?
1. Examination for laser diopter correction
It is necessary to make an examination for laser diopter correction that lasts about two hours, because of all the tests that are done to determine exactly whether you are a candidate for this intervention or another method of diopter correction is more suitable for you.
The examination consists of:
- Completing a questionnaire about your general health;
- Mandatory reading of general information about laser intervention;
- Checking diopters, visual acuity and intraocular pressure;
- Pentacam imaging (3D analysis of the eye is performed and is used to detect certain eye abnormalities for which no symptoms have yet appeared);
- Dilation of pupils with eye drops and objective diopters.
- Talking to the team regarding anything that might be of interest.
Before the examination, it is very important to take a break from wearing contact lenses for a while to “rest” the cornea of the eye from the lens. To manifest the real cylinder or the shape of the cornea without the pressure from the lens.
If you wear soft contact lenses you need to rest from them for a minimum of 3 days before the examination or a minimum of 7 days before the examination if the contact lenses are semi-hard or hard. In the meantime, glasses can be worn.

2. Day of the intervention with laser diopter correction
Preoperative preparation takes about 20 minutes.
During this period, the condition of the patient’s vision and the eye is re-checked. The ophthalmologist explains again the steps of the intervention. After confirming that everything is in order and the patient still wants to do the laser diopter correction, anesthetic drops are taken and the patient enters the operating room.
The intervention itself lasts only 5 minutes for each eye.
It is completely painless – local anesthesia is applied in the form of drops and the patient does not feel pain. The patient is awake and talks to the ophthalmologist and follows their directions. A brace is placed on the eye – this procedure is painless, but may be a little uncomfortable. It serves to keep the eyelids. The patient has a feeling of blinking, although they do not do so because of the brace. A flap is then created at the cornea of the eye where the diopter is lasered and removed. Once the diopter is removed, the flap returns to its normal position.
This procedure is completely painless. With today’s lasers, a diopter is removed in less than 2 seconds. The patient’s eye-tracking system during the operation (tracker) enables precise delivery of the laser beams to a precise place, regardless of the micro-movements of the patient’s eye while the laser is operating.

3. After the intervention you go home only with sunglasses
The period of adaptation or postoperative care for laser diopter correction is from 3 to 7 days.
The next day is the first mandatory examination and the next examination is after a few days based on the assessment of your ophthalmologist. These examinations are used to monitor the stabilization (adaptation) of your vision and the healing of the corneal flap.
Normal reactions immediately after the intervention are slightly blurred vision, tingling, sand and itching. These symptoms disappear in a short period of time, and the drops that you put on help to moisturize the eye and reduce the mentioned symptoms.
Restrictions after the intervention are temporary and do not last long and are always in line with the recommendation of the ophthalmologist. The patient’s profession and lifestyle are very important. Sports activities are usually allowed after the second week and make-up after the third.
Medical staff is available 24/7 for any consultation required after the intervention. Take advantage of the holiday offer and give yourself a clear vision!
