Advantages of laser vision correction

Among the advantages of this method of vision correction, first of all, is safety and effectiveness – additionally, the procedure is short-lasting, performed in the so-called outpatient and is totally painless. On the other hand, the effects are noticeable a few days after the treatment and are lasting, restoring comfort of life for the patient.

Modern laser equipment

At the Ophthalmology Clinic, we perform laser vision correction procedures with the use of the excimer Schwind Amaris 500E. It is one of the most modern equipment of this type in the world. It produces a double beam of rays with the smallest possible diameter (0.5mm), which enables a non contact, extremely precise and accurate correction in a short time. The laser is equipped with an energy stabilization system and an eyeball tracking system in five plans. Thanks to this, undesirable side effects are eliminated.

Laser vision correction surgery is a safe and effective way to get rid of the defect and glasses. It allows you to regain visual comfort quickly.
