Laser surgery:ULTRALASIK

ULTRALASIK optimizes all available technologies used in the process of a laser surgery. It is the combination of a cut by a state-of-the-art laser and a personalized laser treatment.

ULTRALASIK surgery is a solution for correcting myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism.

What is Laser Vision Correction with ULTRALASIK?

PHAKIClens

Ultra LASIK eye surgery is not indicated for some patients with significant vision problems (for nearsightedness greater than -10.00D and farsightedness greater than +6.00D). In such cases, a phakic lens could be implanted.
The phakic lens, which has been used in Europe since 1990 and in Canada since 2000, has proven to be both safe and effective. Most patients receiving this surgery experience an improvement in vision quality.
Seeing as this surgery does not directly involve the crystalline lens, near vision is not affected and there is no increased risk of retinal detachment. Laser enhancements and correction of astigmatism are included.

PRK

PRK surgery is a laser treatment on the corneal surface, and it can be an alternative if LASIK surgery is contraindicated.

Choosing your procedure

ULTRALASIK surgery is the most common laser treatment, and the recovery period is the shortest. A flap is lifted up on the surface of the eye and the laser reshapes the underlying layer of the cornea.
