Lately, I believe that you often come across this term and many of you already have a certain opinion about the laser dioptre correction itself. Diopter correction is not only an aesthetic intervention, it restores functionality in everyday life without dependence on eye aids. Surely each of you has at least once in your life found yourself in a situation where your glasses broke, or you went on vacation/skiing without taking your contact lenses, and you know how big a problem that is. You can enjoy the journey to the fullest.

If you doubt whether it is the right solution for you, here is what you need to know:

Laser diopter correction is safe

Laser correction of diopters has been applied in the world for more than 30 years, here at Sistina Ophthalmology for 10 years and more than 10,000 interventions, and in the world, more than 50 million people have done this intervention.

A revolutionary method, with the help of which the diopter is quickly, painlessly and safely removed, patients do not need eye aids (glasses and lenses) after the intervention itself.

The laser is software-controlled using a computer that has a motion-tracking system that allows the ultraviolet rays to be directed to the exact spot (the wrong diopter or another part of the eye cannot be sharpened). While the lid holder disables blinking during the intervention itself.

The dioptre is corrected in its entirety regardless of whether it is “-“, “+” or astigmatism.

Return to daily activities in 3-5 days

The fact that it is performed under drop anesthesia and lasts only a few minutes, the feeling of discomfort is short, and the procedure itself is completely painless.

Immediately after the intervention, you go home, without staying overnight in our hospital.

In the first 24 hours, there may be increased tearing, scratching, and blurred vision as if looking through water. The day after the intervention, 98% of patients reach their maximum vision.

Already after the fifth day of the intervention, a large number of patients return to their daily work duties, but of course, they must adhere to the instructions given to them.

Schedule an appointment for laser diopter correction

It is a detailed examination that takes about 2 hours and examines every segment of your eye. Subjective and objective diopters are checked, as well as corneal topography (i.e. pentacam analysis), a 3D view of your cornea. To see its symmetry, curvature, and thickness. At the end of the examination, the doctor gives a conclusion about the condition of your eyes and tells you if you are a candidate for laser diopter correction and which method is suitable for you.

During the examination, you can freely discuss with your doctor all the questions and uncertainties you have.

Why choose laser vision surgery?

  • In less than 30 minutes you permanently solve the problem of diopter and wearing glasses and contact lenses
  • You can enjoy sports activities
  • Driving at night will no longer be a nightmare
  • In 3-5 days you return to your daily duties
  • For a life without limits

Until next,
