Laser correction – optimisation of the cornea’s power of refraction

Determining which of the different methods of correction will be successful for you requires individual analysis and discussion.

In corneal procedures, the cornea’s power of refraction can be modified using the excimer laser (Femto-LASIK, LASIK, LASEK/PRK). The Femto-LASIK is more frequently used today. The following provides detailed information on these surgical procedures (Femto-LASIK, classic LASIK).

Methods and applications for corneal procedures

  Near-sightedness Far-sightedness Astigmatism Wavefront/ aberrometry
Femto-LASIK/LASIK up to -8 dpt up to +3 dpt up to 4 dpt possible
LASEK/PRK up to -6 dpt up to +1 dpt up to 3 dpt possible
