We perform ophthalmic examinations and give opinions on the interventions for laser diopter correction, presbyopia, implantation of intraocular lenses and other, without the obligation to make the intervention in our clinic.

Basic ophthalmic examination

This examination consists of anterior segment of the eye (control of diopters, allergies, irritations, dry eyes, foreign bodies in the eye) and is recommended for people with already known eye diseases, like a regular checkup.

If the patient wants only preventive vision and eye examination and has no symptoms or previously diagnosed eye conditions,  the patient can schedule this examination.

Subspecialist examination

The subspecialty examination is a more detailed examination and consists of anterior segment examination, diopter determination (new diopter, diopter change, discovering hidden diopter) and examination of the posterior segment of the eye (fundus and optic nerve).

This examination is recommended for people who have not had an eye examination before, as well as for people who have not had an examination for a long time, and have obvious changes in vision.

This examination can also be done at the request of the patient.

Follow up examination

Upon recommendation of the ophthalmologist, a check up may be proposed to monitor the eye condition.

Depending on the need, the follow up can be:

  • Brief basic inspection of the front segment of the vision;
  • Vision and eye examination with posterior segment examination (usually after certain eye interventions);
  • Follow up after examination or intervention for laser diopter correction;
  • Follow up examination after cataract examination or cataract surgery;
  • Follow up after examination or surgery with the installation of multifocal lenses;
  • Follow up with additional diagnostic tests, etc.

The follow up is usually performed after a small intervention or surgery.

Also, it serves to monitor the development and stability of the patient’s eye condition as a preparation before a certain eye condition.

Examination for laser diopter correction

Laser diopter correction is the most popular diopter correction method used in the world for more than 30 years and more than 40 million interventions have been performed worldwide.

It is one of the most modern interventions today for laser remodeling of the cornea (anterior transparent surface of the eye) to remove or reduce diopter / cylinder.

The laser diopter correction examination is a kind of systematic examination of the eye because it analyzes every part of the eye and is also a guarantee for the success of the intervention. This examination can be done by patients who want only a detailed examination of the condition of the eye and vision without going through laser diopter correction.

The examination lasts from an hour to an hour and a half and consists of:

  • Completing a questionnaire about the patient’s 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 it is used to detect certain abnormalities of the eye for which no symptoms have appeared yet);
  • Dilation of the pupils with drops for checking the fundus and objective diopters;
  • Consulting the team about anything that might be of interest to the patient.

Preparations for the examination are started by a nurse. The examination continues with the ophthalmologist and the optometrist.

Prior to the examination, it is very important for the patient to rest from wearing contact lenses for a period of time in order to “rest” the cornea of ​​the eye from the lenses. To manifest the real cylinder, i.e. the shape of the cornea without the pressure from the lens.

If the patient wears soft contact lenses, it is necessary to rest for a minimum of three days. If the patient wears semi-hard or hard contact lenses then they need to rest from them for a minimum of 7 to 14 days before the examination. In the meantime they can wear glasses.

Examination for keratokonus

Keratoconus is an eye condition in which the cornea gets thinner and gradually bulges outward into a cone shape. This may result in a need for corneal transplantation due to eruption of the cornea.

Initial symptoms for this conditions are rapid diopter and cylinder growth (month by month) or change in cylinder axis. Those who wear contact lenses become hypersensitive to the lenses, and later on do not achieve good vision regardless of the type of aid (glasses or lenses).

This examination is performed to check the condition of the vision, which consists of: refraction, determination of visual acuity, measurement of intraocular pressure, i.e. a complete examination of the anterior segment of the eye.

An analysis is then performed with Pentacam – computerized corneal topography. This diagnostic is used to digitally display the relief of the cornea with mathematical models that show if there are any abnormalities.

The point of this examination is to determine the state of the cornea, the stage of the disease, the overall condition of the eye and whether the patient is for cross-linking method or needs to be regularly followed for progression.

Examination for multifocal lenses

With the advancement of technology, an ideal solution for vision correction has been developed, which is the implantation of multifocal intraocular lenses.

The advantage of these intraocular lenses is that they are lifelong and specially designed for the eye for each patient. Multifocal lenses are implanted for diopter correction and/or cataract surgery.

The examination for multifocal lenses consists of:

  • Refraction;
  • Determining visual acuity;
  • Measurement of intraocular pressure;
  • Examination of the fundus – retina;
  • Echo;
  • Biometrics;
  • IOL master.

The examination is performed by a team of an ophthalmologist, optometrist and nurse. The team is trained to make: an appropriate detailed examination of the eye, appropriate measurements of the intraocular lens and all diagnostic tests needed to detect the presence of a hidden eye disease, which could affect the quality of vision in the future.

Accurate measurement and calculation of diopters of intraocular lenses is very important for acute postoperative vision, which is why we use the most modern computer device “IOL Master”.

Examination for cataract

Cataract is a clouding of the natural lens that can only be treated with surgery. Although cataracts can be the cause of vision loss, it can be removed with a one-day procedure.

The preoperative examination for cataracts contains the following examinations required for the operation:

  • Refraction;
  • Determining visual acuity;
  • Measurement of intraocular pressure;
  • Bottom view;
  • Echo;
  • Biometrics;
  • IOL master.

Preparation for the examination begins with the nurse. The examination continues with the ophthalmologist, and if necessary with an optometrist.

The advantage of our clinic is that the examination and the operation can be done on the same day. No special preparations are required by the patient before the examination.

Examination for glaucoma

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. Elevated intraocular pressure is considered a major risk factor for developing glaucoma. Some values may indicate symptoms of intraocular pressure. Untreated glaucoma can lead to complete damage to the optic nerve resulting in blindness.

In our clinic there is an opportunity to perform a complete diagnosis of glaucoma in one day. The review consists of:

  • Measurement of intraocular pressure;
  • Measurement of the thickness of the cornea – in order to specify the height of the intraocular pressure;
  • Measuring the daily curve at different times of the day;
  • Field of view analysis;
  • Ocular nerve analysis with OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography).
All diagnostic tests are painless and are performed in collaboration with the patient.

Examination for strabismus

Strabismus is a disorder of the position or movement of the eyes where both eyes do not have a common direction of vision. In healthy eyes, both eyes stand upright looking at the same point and the movements are the same. In some cases strabismus occurs because the mobility of one eye in a certain direction is limited.

The examination is painless, detailed and with one examination a complete finding of the condition of the eye can be obtained.

It lasts up to 2 hours and includes an examination of:

  • the anterior segment of the eye,
  • binocular vision tests,
  • determining the visual acuity of each eye individually,
  • computer diopter recording, pupil dilation necessary to determine the total refractive error,
  • correction with corrective glasses and
  • detailed examination of the fundus.

After the examination, the patient receives the report and the results of the diagnostic tests.

Examination for presbyopia

People with age-related diopters (presbyopia) usually have a subspecialty examination.

If necessary, additional diagnostics such as OCT are performed.

If the patient is interested in multifocal lenses that allow vision at all distances (near, far and middle), an examination for multifocal lenses is performed.

The examination is performed by a team of ophthalmologist, optometrist and nurse. The team is trained to make: an appropriate detailed examination of the eye, appropriate measurements of the intraocular lens and all diagnostic tests needed to detect the presence of a hidden eye disease, which could affect the quality of vision in the future.

Examination for person with diabetes

Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness and poor eyesight in the working age population worldwide. Diabetes can cause eye damage as a result of long-term elevated blood sugar levels.

With this examination the ophthalmologist examines the condition of the anterior segment and posterior segment of the eye (fundus and optic nerve), which includes the so-called OCT or optical coherence tomography, the most important diagnostic for this condition. This test scans the structure of the macula and the optic nerve to see if there are any defects in that structure, which are invisible when examined with a magnifying glass, as well as the condition of the blood vessels in the posterior segment of the eye.

All diagnostic tests are painless and are performed in collaboration with the patient.
