Clinic overview “Ophthalmology Center "Novy Zir"”
The first private ophthalmological center is opened in Kiev, headed by Georgi Yakovlevich Parkhomenko. Painstaking work on the establishment of private domestic ophthalmosurgery began.
Ukrainian patients were offered what previously famous foreign medical centers could offer: high quality service and the latest eye disease treatment methods. State of the art equipment is being purchased.
Dr Parkhomenko has his constant helpers - surgeons, nurses, administrators, managers and engineers - working alongside him. Due to their proficiency and united work, in the same year, the ophthalmological school of Georgij Parkhomenko was acknowledged at the clinical training on laser correction in the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and at the Vienna Congress of the European Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
Painstaking scientific and practical work based on the first laser eye corrections is being started. Thanks to modern diagnostic facilities, quality and comprehensive diagnostic examinations of vision became available.
A real breakthrough this year was the introduction of outpatient cataract treatment by phacoemulsification. The surgery now takes no more than 10-15 minutes and does not require hospitalization. With the introduction of phacoemulsification, the long lines have been forgotten. The procedure has become quick and painful. The recovery period has been shortened considerably. People start seeing already in the operating room and go home immediately after the surgery. Some of them are even driving their own automobile.
Successful cataract treatment inspired the team to begin outpatient glaucoma surgery with non-penetrating sclerectomy. In September 2000, at the congress of the European Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons in Brussels, the world community commended the achievements of the young Ukrainian private ophthalmosurgery. Since then, the clinic has been continuously exchanging experience with American, French and Italian colleagues.
We are introducing a new method of myopia and hyperopia correction - implantation of phakic intraocular Artisan lenses. Now the specialists of the clinic can improve eyesight of patients with contraindications for laser correction, for example, with thin cornea or high degrees of refractive error (more than 8.0 diopters).
The Medical Center receives a Certificate of Advanced Course in Phakic Intraocular Lens Implantation Artisan (Groningen, The Netherlands). Leading doctors take part in Russian Symposium on Refractive Surgery (Moscow). This year we are introducing a new method of anesthesia during surgeries - drop anesthesia (without injections).
This year the medical center started offering children's ophthalmology.
And in the clinic itself the implantation of monoblock IOLs, the latest development of the artificial lens, is started.
Two new specialties were opened at the medical center: reconstructive and vitreoretinal surgery. But the main event is the opening of a branch in the city of Khmelnitsky. Now the citizens of this city can get ophthalmological care of metropolitan level at home.
From May 22 to 24, 2003, the International Ophthalmological Symposium was held in Kiev in President Hotel Kievsky, organized by American company Alcon. The Live Cataract Surgery is part of the symposium. About two hundred participants from different countries of the world observed the course of the most complex operations. Dr. Parkhomenko shows his skills "live". Everything going on in the operating room was broadcasted on a big screen in the conference hall of the President Hotel.
In December of the same year, Georgy Yakovlevich repeated the same master class in the Eye Microsurgery Center for Moscow and regional ophthalmologists. During the year, he participated in the congress of the European Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (Munich), became a member of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and a member of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
The New Zir Medical Center opened in October 2004.
Great experience and wide opportunities allowed to introduce new services: "Super Lasik", "Garant Feiko", "Optimal" system. Thanks to them it is possible to restore not only high acuity of vision, but also its optimum quality: clearness, brightness, contrast.
Staying in the "Novy Zir" Eye Center is extraordinarily comfortable. Diagnostic and treatment system sharpened during the long years of practice becomes even more perfect. In the same year the Khmelnitsky Center joins Gheorghe Yakovlevich's medical center that also starts working under the brand "Novy Zir".
It also starts operating under the brand "Novy Zir". Investments are made for improvement of technologies and material and technical basis, the continuous training of medical personnel is provided. The specialists of "Novy Zir" center are permanently updating their knowledge at international conferences and congresses. This makes it possible to develop and implement a number of important projects and programs: creation of a training center for ophthalmologists and cooperation with famous medical centers.
Thanks to the Super LASIK method of laser correction we managed to restore visual acuity above 100%. Now vision of 120-150% after laser correction is common practice. Implantation of Artisan phakic lenses is also used in everyday clinical practice. This method is used when there are contraindications to laser correction as an alternative to it or in cases of very high degrees of visual impairment.
The real event of the year was the introduction of multifocal surgery. Thanks to ReSTORE lens implantation it became possible to correct age-related hyperopia. Since this year our doctors constantly consult in the regional centers of Ukraine. Our management is implementing a specially designed social program for pensioners.
That same year doctors of our medical center received a patent for the joint development with the Russian Academy of Sciences of a video computerized treatment of strabismus. This system makes it possible to achieve the correct position of the eyes, to restore binocular vision in 70% of cases without surgical intervention.
Implementing the latest achievements of the world ophthalmology in the practice, in June 2006 "Novy Zir" Medical Centers started to use a new development of Alcon Company - AcrySof IQ Natural intraocular lens. Implantation of these lenses provides a fundamentally new quality of vision in different lighting conditions. Their special manufacturing technology allows seeing clear and sharp images even at night time, eliminating glare and flare in bright light.

Our specialists were also able to achieve significant results in laser eye correction. A patient suffering from -6D myopia (20% of vision) got visual acuity of up to 150%! Cases of visual acuity increase up to 100% are becoming a matter of routine in the everyday ophthalmosurgical practice of the doctors of the "Novy Zir" medical center.
