Step by step

From the first moment to the follow-up assessments

Prior to laser vision correction, the first important step is a thorough eligibility assessment in combination with a consultation with your specialist.

Register for assessment online within one minute, and our professional consultants will contact you on the phone to make an appointment for assessment.

For a successful assessment you should follow a few instructions.

  • Do not wear any soft contact lenses for 4 days, or hard contact lenses for 4 weeks prior to assessment.
  • During the assessment your pupils will be dilated making your vision blurred for a while. Driving is not recommended during this period; therefore, you should have an accompanying person to take you to us and back home after the assessment.
  • Do not use any make-up, perfume, cosmetics, and wear convenient clothing and shoes on the assessment day.
  • Inform yourself on our website about laser solutions and exact price of examinations and treatments.
  • Prepare questions which you wish to discuss with our consulting assistants and your specialist.

Take the following documents with you the agreed appointment: personal identification card, residence card, social security card, former ophthalmological reports, other medical documents, actual glasses, contact lenses, and their data.

Please arrive on the agreed time on the assessment day. You can expect a stay of about two hours, including recording required data, detailed assessment, consultation with medical professionals and consulting assistants, and preparing the necessary documents.

It is important that you will give the prepared documents to our consulting assistants and inform your assessing physician exactly about your actual diseases, previous health problems and regularly taken medicines.

In addition to establishing eligibility for surgery, the general condition of the eyes will also be assessed during the specialist examination. Your specialist will perform the following tests to determine eligibility for laser vision correction:

  • Visual acuity assessment
  • Corneal topography
  • Wavefront analysis – aberrometry
  • Pupil diameter measurement
  • Corneal thickness measurement
  • Eye pressure measurement
  • Assessment of the cornea
  • Fundus assessment

Based on the results, the assessing physician may prescribe further special tests. Required tools, machines and equipment are also available.

Following assessment, your physician will inform you about possible surgical procedures, the recommended treatment programme, expected results of the surgery, and possible risks.

You can make an appointment for the laser vision correction with the assistance of our consulting assistants directly after the assessment.

Please arrive on the agreed time on the treatment day. You can expect a stay of about four hours, including checking required data, specialist examination before treatment, preparation of the treatment, laser surgery in the operating theatre, short recovery after therapy, specialist assessment before discharge home, preparation of required documentation, and counselling before discharge home.

For a successful eye surgery you should follow a few important instructions.

  • Do not wear any soft contact lenses for 4 days, or semi-rigid or rigid contact lenses for 4 weeks prior to the agreed time of the surgery.
  • Do not use any make-up, perfume, cosmetics, and wear convenient clothing and shoes on the treatment day.
  • Do not consume any alcohol, do not take any sedatives or other product affecting the nervous system, and avoid hangover.
  • Regularly administered medicines may be taken as usual, and take your medicines for the day also with you.
  • Have a light breakfast on the treatment day.
  • Have an accompanying person to take you to us and back home after surgery.
    You must not drive for 24 hours after surgery.

A repeated specialist assessment will be performed prior to treatment to look for possible changes which have evolved since the eligibility assessment and may contraindicate the treatment, and your visual acuity and the accuracy of the planned treatment will be checked again.

Preoperative agitation may be relieved with mild medication, then after disinfecting the surroundings of the eye, anaesthesia will be performed with eye drops. You will receive protective clothing, overshoes and a cap covering your hair prior to going into the operating theatre.

Although laser treatment takes only 30 to 90 seconds, you will most probably perceive this time as longer. You will spend 30 to 40 minutes in the recovery room after treatment, providing an opportunity for a short nap. The postoperative condition of your eye will be checked once again before discharge. Our consultants will inform you in detail about what to do after therapy and the required follow-up examinations. After receiving the discharge letter you can depart for home with your companion.

It is important to attend follow-ups to enable our physicians to follow the undisturbed healing of your eyes and continuously check your vision quality in order to achieve the best result. For all interventions, the first follow-up assessment is due within 24 hours. Therefore, you have to visit us again on the next day after surgery.

For superficial therapies, after the 24-hour follow-up, you should attend for follow-up at day 3, and subsequently after 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months, 6 months and 12 months.

For flap creation therapies, after the 24-hour follow-up, you should attend for follow-up after 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months.

For an undisturbed recovery you should follow a few important instructions.

  • Administered the prescribed eye drops as instructed by our physicians. Thereby, you can prevent inflammation or any other adverse reactions.
  • Administer artificial tears as instructed by the physician, even if you do not have dry eyes.
  • Protect your eyes with sunglasses with UV filter against strong daylight in the first weeks. Further instructions for wearing sunglasses will be defined by your physicians depending on the type of eye surgery.
  • Do not use any make up for at least one week, and do not go to swimming pool, steam bath or sauna for four weeks after surgery.
  • Do not drive and do not perform any demanding physical work and exhaustive sports activity until your ophthalmologist allows it for you.
  • Avoid dusty, smoke-filled, dirty environments, and do not smoke.
  • Ask your physician when you can continue your work.
  • Always attend the required follow-ups, even if you feel complaint-free.
  • In case of complaints, return for consultation immediately.
