Step by step

Contacting us

By visiting our website and retrieving information about laser vision-correction, you have made the first, most important step towards living without glasses.
Our home page provides you with a great deal of useful information, but for an accurate assessment of your suitability, you will also need a complete medical check-up and consultation. After you have contacted us, our advisers will arrange an appointment with you for your check-up and register you for the examination.

Preparation for the check-up

For a successful examination and consultation we ask that you prepare for the check-up as described below and bring the necessary documents with you:

  • Do not wear soft contact lenses 4 days or hard contact lenses 4 weeks before the check-up.
  • The check-up includes pupil dilation, therefore your vision may become more blurred for a temporary period of time. In this case, driving is not recommended, so you should be accompanied by someone who can drive you to our institute and back home following the examination.
  • Do not use make-up or any perfumes or cosmetics on the day of the check-up, and be sure to carefully remove any make-up.
  • Do wear comfortable clothes and shoes for the examination.
  • Do visit our home page or read our brochures we will give you to receive information about laser vision-correction and the prices of the examinations and treatments.
  • Do draw up a list of all the questions that you would like to put to our doctors and advisers.
  • Do please bring the following documents and things with you: identity card, address card, social insurance card, earlier ophthalmic results, other medical documents, and glasses and/or contact lenses that you are currently using (along with their related data).

On the day of the check-up

You should arrive maximum 5 to 10 minutes before your arranged appointment. You will spend about two hours in our institute, which includes the taking of your required data, a detailed examination, a consultation with our doctors and advisers and the preparation of all required documentation.

During this phase you should give our adviser-colleagues all of the requested documents (as mentioned above) and inform our assistants and the doctor examining you about any existing medical conditions or earlier health problems you have had, and also any medicines you regularly take.

In addition to the well-known traditional instruments used in this field, this specialised examination is performed with equipment exclusively available in our institute, through which we establish your suitability for the procedures and check the general state of health of your eyes.
Our specialist performs the following examination to establish whether you are suitable for laser intervention:

  • Testing visual acuity
  • Mapping the cornea
  • Wavefront analysis – aberrometry
  • Examining the diameter of the pupil
  • Measuring the thickness of the cornea
  • Measuring pressure in the eyes
  • Examining the cornea
  • Examination of the fundus

Based on the results, your ophthalmologist may prescribe additional specific tests. The instruments, machines, and equipment required are available in our institute.

The specialist examining you will discuss the obtained results with you and inform you about what sort of treatment techniques and treatment programs can be used in your case and also about which of them are expected to give you the best results. Do not hesitate to ask any questions during the consultation and inquire about any important details concerning the check-up and treatment.

You can apply for the laser vision-correction treatment right after the check-up, during the consultation with the adviser. The medical information that is documented following the examination contains all of the important information about the arranged intervention.

On the day of the laser vision-correction treatment

You should arrive to our institute for the treatment appointment just early enough to prepare for the intervention. You will spend about four hours in our institute, which includes checking the required data, the pre-treatment check inspection carried out by a specialist, the preparation for the intervention, the laser treatment (performed in the operating room), a short rest after the treatment, the check inspection performed by a specialist before discharge, the preparation of the necessary documentation and a counselling session before discharge from the clinic.

For a safe and successful treatment, we also need your cooperation. Therefore, we ask you to prepare for the intervention as follows:

  • If you have soft contact lenses, please remove them 4 days before the intervention.
  • If you wear hard or semi-hard contact lenses, please, do not use them 4 weeks before the arranged appointment for the treatment.
  • Do not use make-up, perfumes or cosmetics on the day of the intervention. Do remove your make-up carefully the day before.
  • Do not drink alcohol and avoid being hungover.
  • Do not take any sedatives and avoid the use of any other preparations affecting the nervous system.
  • Do have a light breakfast.
  • If you take medicines regularly, take them at the usual time and bring your medicines with you on the day of the treatment.
  • Do have someone accompany you and drive you home after the treatment.
  • You must not drive for 24 hours following the treatment.

Before the treatment, you will be screened by a specialist for possible lesions which may have developed since your first examination which could impede our specialists from successfully performing the intervention, your visual acuity will be double checked, as will the accuracy of the planned treatment. During preparation, we relieve intrinsic tension with a mild drug, then, following the disinfection of the area around the eye, we administer anaesthetic eye drops. Before entering the operating room you will receive a protective garment, shoe-protectors and a cap to cover your hair. Although laser treatment only lasts for a half to a minute and a half per eye, you will most probably feel it to be longer — don’t be surprised if your companion accompanying you asks “Is it done already?” when you step into the waiting room. Following the treatment, you will have 30-40 minutes in our resting-room to give you a chance for a short rest. Before discharging you, we will check the state of your eye(s) after the intervention once again. Our advisers will give you detailed information about what you should do and about the necessary follow-up examinations. You can then go home with your companion and your medical final report.

Aftercare

Follow-up examinations are for our treated patients’ safety. Therefore, we ask everybody to follow instructions and suggestions they are given and come back for the prescribed follow-up examinations. When you do this, our doctors can track your smooth recovery, check your vision continually and can immediately recognize situations which make a change in the treatment after the intervention necessary in order to achieve the best possible result for you.
The first follow-up examination takes place 24 hours following treatment. This means that you must come to our institute on the day after an intervention.
