We offer several types of laser vision correction at Eira: SMILE, Lasik, Femto-Lasik and PRK.
SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) represents the absolute latest technology in the field of refractive surgery. Thanks to this new technology, it is possible to correct refractory errors without making a flap in the cornea as in the past. The markedly smaller wound in the cornea minimises any dry eye problems following the surgery. The SMILE procedure is performed using the VisuMax femtosecond laser, manufactured by Carl Zeiss Meditec AG.
The laser treatment in a Femto-Lasik procedure is based on cornea treatment with the help of laser pulses that have a width of approx. 0.54 mm. This makes the operation more accurate than in the past. We also have an eye-tracker that controls the movements of the eye and ensures that the laser beams hit the correct spot.
The Lasik technique is based on laser treatment under the surface layer. The benefit of this is that the recovery is fast and your visual acuity can be almost normal only one hour after the surgery. It takes a little longer before you achieve the final visual acuity.
