Which patients shall undergo the laser eye surgery?

The laser eye surgery is suitable when a patient wants to remove eye defects such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism. It is mainly suitable for younger patients between 18 and 45 years of age. However, it is also necessary to remember that the suitability of the surgery is individual and can only be recommended to someone on the basis of a complex pre-operative examination. The doctor will recommend the most appropriate laser eye surgery type according to the results.


ReLEx SMILE laser surgery

The Eye Centre Prague offers its clients the most modern laser vision correction, the so-called ReLEx SMILE. 
This is the gentlest type of a laser eye surgery. The entire procedure is performed using a femtosecond laser, which, based on precise calculations, separates a thin layer of the tissue directly inside the cornea without disturbing its strength and stability (the cornea remains intact). The removal of diopters consists of adjusting the curvature of the cornea so that the light rays are projected precisely onto the retina and a sharp image of the object being viewed is projected. 
The ReLEx SMILE method is the MOST MODERN, MOST CAREFUL and MOST ACCURATE method of vision correction.  
The surgery is painless, the recovery is quick and the healing time is short.

Pre-operative examination

If you are considering a laser removal of dioptres, it is always necessary to undergo a complex examination. Only on the basis of this examination, a doctor can assess your eye defect and recommend a suitable laser eye surgery method. 

The initial pre-operative examination is very in-depth and takes 2 to 3 hours. It consists of finding out your anamnesis, an examination performed by a doctor as well as by special diagnostic apparatus. You will also undergo a cycloplegy during the examination for which eye drops which disable accommodation or sharpening for near objects are put into your eye which facilitates discovering a potential hidden eye defect. At the end of the examination, you have a consultation with a doctor who recommends a suitable laser eye surgery method and explains you everything in detail. Don’t be afraid to ask anything!


Laser eye surgery

Laser surgeries are performed on outpatient’s basis, it means you leave the clinic the same day the surgery takes place. 

You spend approximately two hours at the clinic on the day of the surgery. During the preparation to the surgery, a nurse puts anaesthetic eye drops to your eyes which ensure the procedure is painless. You spend approximately 15 minutes in the operating room with the total period of laser activity to be approximately 30 seconds. The eyes are not covered after the procedure.


Post-operative examination

It is necessary to come for an examination to our Eye Centre Prague one day after the surgery.

In the first couple of days after the surgery, you will put antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drops into the eye that underwent the surgery. You will put moisturising eye drops to your eyes for the next couple of weeks. Most patients are able to start work as usual between the second and the fifth day after the surgery.
