Laser refractive surgery
At the Klinik am Casinoplatz all scientifically approved types of modern refractive surgery are executed most abundant in advanced technology.

In the joy of refractive surgery patients wish to live your life without glasses or contact lenses. Our experience, combined with the most advanced technology may help you accomplish that goal by correcting your refractive error.

Following refractive errors may be corrected using Laser surgery.

Myopia approximately -8.0 diopters
Hyperopia up tp +5.0 diopters
Astigmatism approximately -5.0 diopters
Higher refractive errors might be corrected through implantation of special lenses inside the eye.


Refractive errors
Emmetropia: An eye is termed emmetrope or normal sighted whether it can make a sharp image from distant objects. All other conditions which change from an emmetropia are so called refractive errors.

The most important refractive errors are Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia.

Myopia: Nearsightedness or Myopia is a refractive error when it's possible to start to see the nearby objects more clear as opposed to distant objects. In most cases it is because a person's eye is way too long or because the refractive power of a person's eye is simply too strong. It appears often inside the duration of puberty and progresses till the chronilogical age of about 25 and remains during the entire whole life.

Hyperopia: In the case of hyperopia or farsightedness a persons vision is just too short or perhaps the refractive power of the eye is way too weak. In the young age and with regards to the degree of hyperopia it's possible to still see clear inside distance and nearby providing the accommodation or capacity to focus still exists. As we age we lose our ability to focus first the nearby objects and later on the distant.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism causes blurring of images in any respect distances. It exists usually from the time of birth and may be related to myopia or hyperopia. The higher the irregularity from the cornea the larger is the distortion from the image.

Presbyopia: Presbyopia can be a normal part with the aging process which enable it to affect everybody from the age of 40. As we age the natural lens inside eye loses its flexibility and becomes more dens so the nearby objects cannot be observed clearly. People usually compensate this by holding reading materials out-of-the-way. Patients often complain that their arms usually are not of sufficient length anymore. At this stage, most sufferers require reading glasses. In general presbyopia can be corrected with multifocal lens implantation or monovision. Monovision signifies that the dominant eye is corrected for the distant vision and also the non dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In order to concur that the person tolerates monovision, this condition may be simulated with disposable lenses.
