Modern laser eye treatments at a glance

Laser eye surgery – the dream of life without glasses! With modern methods of eye surgery, this can be available to everyone. Patients with defective vision have been receiving treatment for nearly 30 years.

The eye surgeons at the Cabinet de Chirurgie Réfractive have dedicated themselves to their specialist area of laser eye treatments for many years and over this time have built up personal experience of more than 20,000 refractive surgical procedures.

The history of refractive eye surgery starts as early as 1983 with the development of Excimer lasers. In 1986 the first laser eye treatment using the PRK method (photorefractive keratectomy) takes place. LASIK, which has become established since the start of the 1990s, represents a further development of this original method.

Femto-LASIK operations have been available in Germany since 2004. Today it is just as much part of the range of standard procedures at the Cabinet de Chirurgie Réfractive as the modern SMILE, the next generation of laser eye techniques.

SMILE method: the next generation of laser eye surgery

High precision. Minimally invasive. Safe.

The SMILE method (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) is the third generation laser eye procedure: minimally invasive, particularly pain-free and safe. The corneal tissue is only affected minimally and at the same time the Zeiss Femtosecond VisuMax® Laser makes a precise correction possible.
 

SMILE method: the advantages at a glance

  • Minimally invasive – the procedure barely affects the stability of the cornea or the tear duct
  • Pain-free, gentle and safe
  • Comfortable and quick
  • No flap
  • Heals quickly
  • may be used with dry eyes / a thin corneah
  • Sport, driving and working can be resumed the following day

Femto-LASIK: laser treatment with a flap

A tried and tested laser eye technique – precise and safe

Femto-LASIK is a further development of the LASIK method. LASIK generally means a laser eye treatment, which works with a corneal flap. With the aid of a high-precision Femtosecond laser, Femto-LASIK stands for a safe and pain-free technique.
 

Femto-LASIK: the method for nearly all types of defective vision

  • More safety and greater precision with the Femtosecond laser
  • Incision complications are minimized in comparison with the traditional LASIK
  • A quick and pain-free procedure
  • Suitable for short-sightedness and long-sightedness, as well as astigmatism

LASEK / PRK: laser eye treatment with no incision

if LASIK is not possible

PRK is the first generation of laser eye treatments. It has been used in practice since 1988 and was further refined over the first few years into the LASEK procedure. This method is suitable for treating those types of defective vision, where for various reasons a LASIK or SMILE procedure would not be appropriate.
 

LASEK: suitable for patients with

  • a thin cornea
  • specific eye conditions or a family history of these
  • scarring of the cornea
  • sports with direct physical contact

Laser eye treatments in comparison

 
The Cabinet de Chirurgie Réfractive offers you as a patient various surgical procedures using lasers, which – depending on the results of the preliminary examination and the condition of the eye – could be used as part of a laser eye operation. The SMILE method is used in over 80% of cases. It is the laser eye method for the next generation, as it works without a flap, unlike the classic LASIK or even Femto-LASIK. The best treatment method for you individually can only be determined following a comprehensive preliminary examination and a personal consultation with one of our eye experts. The best thing would be to give us a ring and arrange an appointment.
