This laser surgery. They are effective, not traumatic, provide a stable result.
Question №3. As such interventions take place?
Unlike normal operations, laserintervention carried out quickly, the whole process, including a full examination takes half a day. The operation takes several minutes, and laser treatment - a few seconds.
Question №4. What features direct operations?
Laser cataract removal - a methodeffective as in the mature and in the immature cataract. This compares favorably with the intervention of the ultrasound surgery (phacoemulsification), which can only be applied in cases of immature cataract. At the same time, patients often come to the ophthalmologist is already a mature cataract, which is accompanied by a significant decrease in vision.
Question №5. That is, should choose the center, which operates with a laser?
It's not just that. There is one more subtlety associated with models of lasers themselves. There are special laser with a wavelength that is quenched in the eye. This considerably facilitates the patient after surgery.

Question №7. What are the possibilities for laser treatment of glaucoma?
Glaucoma surgery is also doneoutpatient. The eye is very small incision - less than one and a half millimeters. Inside the eye is introduced thinnest optical fiber through which the laser beam is carried out and which is carrying out a therapeutic effect. This technique is practically excluded complications. The duration of the operation - 2-5 seconds, along with preparatory procedures intervention takes three minutes. According to the data we possess, the results of applying this method is very stable, the intraocular pressure even from the first operated by this method keeps normal.

My answer to you this way: constantly come to us for treatment from abroad. From Italy, Germany, not to mention the former "our" republics. And the ride is not only our former compatriots. Just the same quality of operations here, but the price is much lower. We maintain a high scientific level and the high level of its equipment - which in our business is very important.
