LASIK – Eine der populärsten Methode der refraktiven Chirurgie (Augenoperationen mit Lasern)The term “Refractive surgery” are all behalndlung types of eye operations a summary of the total refractive power of the eye change. The most common Form of refractive treatments are performed with the help of lasers.

The LASIK procedure (Laser in-situ Keratomileusis) is currently one of the most popular methods of the various eye operations. The aim of this Laser SURGERY is to be able to in the future glasses or contact lens for the correction of the refractive power on a permanent replace.

The Lasik method is mainly for the correction of myopia (up to max. -10 diopters), hyperopia (up to max. +4 diopters) and astigmatism, a special refractive property of the eye, known as astigmatism skin or hyperopia (up to max. 5 diopters). Depending on the approved country and inserted Laser the values may differ in the brackets by a few diopters. Before the LASIK under it, however, requires a detailed preliminary investigation and interviews with experienced doctors.
