Undergo a laser surgery, forget your removable lens or glasses
Laser eye surgery is a type of refractive surgery which corrects the refractive power of the lens (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism). Eye correction is based on remodelling the cornea (transparent front part of the eye) with the use of an excimer laser. More than 50 million people throughout the world have had an operation to get rid of their contact lenses and glasses. The first excimer laser operation performed in Croatia was done in 1998 by Dr. Nikica Gabrić in Svjetlost Clinic, Zagreb.
Besides laser correctional surgery, vision can be regulated with lens implants
Just because you don’t qualify for laser surgery (severe refraction, inadequate corneal thickness etc.) it doesn’t necessarily mean you still have to deal with tedious eyeglasses and contact lenses. Laser surgery isn’t the only solution – your prescription can be solved with lens implants, which could be the solution for you.
ICL, Verisyse and Veriflex lens implantation are considered excellent choices for patients who have a stable prescription, from: -2.00 D to -23.5 D (myopia), +1.00 D to +12.00 D (hyperopia), and patients who have a thin cornea, all of which conditions are not eligible for LASIK surgery. These lenses are very reliable when it comes to correcting severe myopia or hyperopia. The lenses can be replaced in the event that new and better technology comes.
