The biggest problem in our daily life is the organization and fulfillment of all our obligations, especially when it comes to planning any medical procedure. Therefore, we briefly list the most important information about laser diopter correction that will help you in an easier organization before and after the intervention.

Laser diopter correction is the safest method of diopter removal in people aged 18 to about 40 years who have a stable diopter for a minimum of one year and who are the candidates for this intervention. Are you a candidate determined on a detailed examination for laser diopter correction and examined every detail of your eye? This examination is one of the most detailed examinations in ophthalmology.

Laser diopter correction examination

The examination takes about two hours, sometimes longer

Due to the detail of the examination itself, it can take two hours or even longer, depending on how quickly your pupils dilate (the same is done with drops, it is completely painless and serves as a detailed examination of the back segment of the eye and hidden diopter).

The examination is quite long and due to the current pandemic, we always recommend that the escort come to pick you up at the end of the examination. Your vision will be blurred for some time after the examination so it is not advisable to drive. We will contact your escort on your behalf when the examination is complete.

Rest from contact lenses

Before the examination, if you wear soft contact lenses, you need to rest from them for a minimum of 3 days before the examination, if they are semi-hard or hard then a minimum of 7 days before the examination. In the meantime, you can wear glasses.

Tip: If you cannot wear glasses, we would recommend that you schedule your examination on Monday, and during the weekend rest your eyes from contact lenses.
