Lens operations at a glance

Whether you are short-sighted or long-sighted, whether you have an astigmatism or need reading glasses: Our modern lens procedures at the Cabinet de Chirurgie Réfractive in Luxembourg make it possible for almost any patient to enjoy life without glasses or contact lenses. It is even possible to correct very large defects in vision, as there is no restriction related to the removal of tissue.
