Which patients are eligible for laser treatment depends on different factors and can vary slightly between different eye clinics. The maximum number of diopters up to which an OP can be performed is not uniformly defined. In addition to the diopters also plays a role, how long the refractive error is already stable. Here is that the eyesight should not have changed within the last 2 years. In addition, the patient must be of age on the day of the procedure. With regard to age, however, it is recommended to wait until the eye is finished growing, which may be the case up to the age of 25.

Anyone who is short or long sighted or has astigmatism is plagued with a worse or "blurred" view. These types of ametropia can be compensated with glasses or contact lenses as far as possible. But caused by the glasses or contact lens further aberrations. These are deviations from the ideal optical image within the eye. With each additional lens attached in an optical system, such aberrations are produced. However, these mistakes are known to very few patients.

However, glasses or contact lenses can not correct these errors because they can only be achieved with multi-lens optics. This is not possible with glasses or contact lenses. Optics with multiple lenses we find only in photo lenses or the like. When eye laser, the cornea of ​​the eye is processed. In this way, the visual and imaging errors are corrected. So here are no additional lenses as glasses or contact lenses necessary. Using the laser, the ophthalmologist is thus able to give the eye a visual quality that would not be possible with other vision aids. Thus, not only is blur-induced visual impairment remedied by eye-laser, it also improves aspects involving color vision and contrast perception.

The terms eye lasers and LASIK are often used as syndromes. In fact, LASIK is only one of three generations in the development of laser vision. Each innovation was about reducing the risks and side effects of an eye-laser method. Due to the higher safety and freedom from pain, we recommend our patients to have their eyes lasered with the latest ReLEx SMILE procedure wherever possible. Only if this is not possible, would other laser methods in the shortlist.

At the laser eye centers in Germany the specialists know that eyes are the most important sensory organ. For them health of patients has the major priority. So that’s why they are using the latest laser equipment and the most precise, computer-controlled lasers.

Corrective eye surgery techniques

SPOT SCANNING LASER

At German laser eye centers the most common way to treat vision disorders is to use the excimer laser. Ophthalmologists often use the technique of the flying spot. The beam of the excimer laser scans the eye surface that should be treated and via many small impulses it reshapes the cornea. This spearing treatment has less complication because of minimal electric impulses.

EYE TRACKINGM

Excimer laser vision correction is equipped with a control system, which is highly precise and sets the laser beam onto the area that should be treated. This corrective laser surgery enables to eliminate the involuntary eye movement of the patient. The procedure is very precise and can be used to treat patients with “dancing eyes” (nystagmus).

TOPOGRAPHIC LASER TREATMENT

Topographic excimer laser system is used in accordance to individual characteristics of each eye. The laser scans the cornea and sends the beam in the needed direction. That’s why it removes only certain parts of the cornea, so the surrounded tissue can stay without damages. Topographic laser treatment is commonly used for postoperative correction (e.g. scars or irregular astigmatism).

LASIK PROCEDURE

LASIK surgery is one of the most effective and common vision surgical procedures used in eye centers Germany and all over world for more than 25 years. The surgeon performs LASIK with special automatically controlled and very small and precise knife called microkeratome. This surgical technique creates a small flap in the cornea. During the surgery the flap is folded back by the surgeon and he ablates a tiny piece of tissue from the cornea. This method enables the surgeon to improve patients’ ability to see. Afterwards the surgeon brings the flap back to its place, which makes natural healing process possible.

Advantages of LASIK:

  • quick rehabilitation (1 day)
  • painless postoperative period
  • repeated surgery possible
  • long-term treatment results
  • predictive results
  • low infection risks

Disadvantages of LASIK:

  • possible flap complications
  • complex surgery technique (mistakes during the surgery are possible)
  • one month after the surgery no strenuous activity allowed

FEMTO-LASIK PROCEDURE

Most eye centers in Germany offer such surgical procedures like femtosecond LASIK or “Bladeless” LASIK. These treatments are innovative in the modern medicine and guarantee efficient treatment results. Nowadays femtosecond LASIK is used in 90 percent of patients to correct vision diseases. This laser surgery procedure is also more smoothie than the common LASIK method.

The infrared beam of the ultrashort pulse laser removes the outer layer of the cornea. There is no mechanical tools needed and the patient doesn’t have any scars after the surgery. This procedure is very simple, because the surgeon doesn’t have to make an incision. Infrared femtosecond laser sends ultra short light impulses into the cornea with a predetermined depth. Due to the laser energy little carbon dioxide and water bubbles occur. Many sent impulses perforate the tissue (make a hole). This enables to reshape the cornea surface and clear the vision.

After the corrective surgery with excimer laser the flap is put back. Already after few hours the healing process begins and the bubbles disappear.

Femto-LASEK procedure is very popular because it is more comfortable for patients.

The huge advantage of the Femto-LASEK method is the very precise and accurate surgical process. It enables ophthalmologists to treat patient with severe nearsightedness and thin cornea. This procedure will be the most comfortable and effective for you!

LASEK PROCEDURE

LASEK surgery is often used in German eye centers. A special alcohol solution loosens the outer layer of the cornea (epithelial tissue) that is lifted. After laser reshaping the epithelial tissue is moved back and covered with a protecting lens.

Another form of LASEK corrective surgery is Epi-LASEK. During Epi-LASEK a special tool “dries out” the epithelial tissue that separates it from the eye without loosen it.

Advantages of LASEK procedure:

  • simple corrective eye surgery techique
  • can be used in patients with a very thin cornea
  • acceptable method to correct nearsightedness up to -6 dipoter, farsightedness up to +3 diopter and astigmatism up to -4 diopter
  • strenuous activity allowed few days after the surgery

Disadvantages of LASEK procedure:

  • postoperative possible aches
  • longer rehabilitation (up to 10 days)
  • light blurred vision
  • repeated surgery is needed for a postoperative correction

TRANSEPITHELIAL PRK (TRANS-PRK)

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is the “oldest” and original laser vision correction technology. After the development of painless LASIK procedure Trans-PRK has lost its popularity because no one wanted to suffer from post-operative pain.

Later PRK has been developed and refined to transepithelial PRK. The epithelial tissue is now removed not mechanically, but via laser. Afterwards the surgeon reshapes the outer surface of the cornea. A tissue removal is performed directly on the stromal layer. The laser-treated area is covered with a contact lens until the epithelium is healed.

Unlike classical photorefractive keratectomy the wound remaining after transepithelial PRK is much smaller, the surgery is less painful and the rehabilitation is faster.

Advantages of Trans-PRK:

  • simple procedure
  • less complications
  • acceptable prices
  • strenuous activity after only a few days

Disadvantages of Trans-PRK:

  • postoperative pains
  • longer recovery (3 to 5 days)
  • possible blurred vision
  • the procedure is not used to treat farsightedness

What are the advantages of laser eye treatment?

01.05.2019

The treatment with the eye laser Frankfurt heals some cases of myopia, farsightedness and ametropia, of which sufferers would otherwise have to wear either contact lenses or glasses. If the eye lasers can be performed in the present low vision and the health of the patient, the patient needs afterwards neither glasses nor contact lenses.

In order to change the refractive power of the eye and thus to heal an optically refractive error, there are several possible operations that can be performed at eye lasers Frankfurt. In a pre-examination, the doctor must discuss individually with the patient which treatment is most appropriate.

The photorefractive keratectomy, short PRK, is a method offered by eye lasers Frankfurt, which has been used since 1987 and is always refined. The name of the treatment method is made up of the words photo = greek, light or light, refractive = lat., Break down and kerato = greek, concerning the cornea.

It is a very short procedure and in itself painless, but after the eye lasers have stopped, it can cause discomfort such as sensitivity to the senses and the feeling of having a foreign object in the eye. This can last a few days. For four days after treatment, the patient must wear a bandage contact lens for protection. In addition, full vision only sets in after a longer period of time.

Above all, the benefits of PRK are that eye lasers can be performed on people who, for health reasons, such as lack of corneal thickness, can not use other treatments.

The LASEK eye lasers work in a similar way, but with fewer discomfort after the operation, but also have the disadvantage that usually take a few weeks to restore complete vision.

A gentler procedure is the LASIK, in which the corneal layer is not worn away, but only folded up and folded down again after lasering.

Augenlasern Frankfurt works with a special method, the so-called Femto-Lasik. This method uses state-of-the-art equipment to minimize the risk of infection. While in the conventional Lasik method part of the cornea is mechanically separated as a so-called flap by a microkeratome, this is done by the Femto-Lasik laser. This makes Femto-Lasik safest of all the treatments listed here.
