THE BEST TECHNOLOGY AND EXPERIENCED OPHTHALMOLOGISTS
Thanks to the new SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) technology, it is possible to correct refractive errors without making a traditional flap in the eye. Instead, a disk, i.e. a “lenticule”, is made in the cornea by transmitting laser impulses in two layers. The lenticule is removed through a small incision and the cornea’s outer layer thus remains more intact, when compared with the traditional flap surgery. The risk of dry eyes following the procedure is significantly lower with the SMILE method. Studies show that the results of a SMILE procedure are excellent in terms of both correction of the refractive error and the recovery.
The first SMILE procedures in Finland are being performed by our experienced ophthalmologist Harri Koskela. The SMILE procedure is especially recommended for patients who have an increased risk of eye accidents as a result of their recreational interests.
We assess whether the SMILE method is the best option for you in conjunction with the comprehensive pre-examination.
COMPREHENSIVE pre-examination WITH THE HOSPITAL OPTICIAN
The laser vision correction process begins with a thorough initial
evaluation during which our hospital optician charts your eyes’ health
status and measures the astigmatism, intraocular pressure, your eyes and
makes a corneal map of your eyes. The optical tomography of the retina
(OCT) is performed when necessary.
