The Lasik laser vision correction procedure can be divided into three stages:

  • Diagnostics and preparation
  • Procedure
  • Restoration


Lasik procedure has no general parameters that are suitable for each patient. It is strictly individual and depends on the patient and his or her specific vision problems.

Prior to the correction, doctors conduct a thorough examination to identify the extent of the disorder. Data obtained as a result of diagnosis is entered into a computer which calculates parameters for laser impact on the inner cornea layers. This allows for maximum accuracy of vision correction.


The whole procedure takes not more than 15 minutes, and direct laser exposure lasts up to 60 seconds. Laser vision correction is considered to be one of the safest and most effective procedures for vision restoration in the world.

  1. The patient is injected pain-relieving drops into the eye (no anesthesia or anesthetic injections are used). After the medicine begins to work, the eyelid is fixed so that the patient cannot blink.
  2. During surgery, the patient is asked to look at the glowing dot in the device to center the position of the eye.
  3. The next step is to use a special device (microkeratome) to create a corneal tissue flap from the surface layers only 130-150 microns thick, then it is folded aside opening deeper cornea layers for the laser beam.
  4. The laser vaporizes part of the cornea, forming its new surface.
  5. The flap is put back in place and fixed by collagen, the cornea's own substance. It is worth noting that laser vision correction does not require suturing. Epithelium restoration along the edge of the flap occurs independently.
  6. And the last stage - the cornea is flushed with a special solution. The patient receives anti-inflammatory drops.


After Lasik laser correction procedure the patient stays in the clinic for 1,5-2 hours under supervision of an ophthalmologist. The first 30 minutes may cause discomfort and burning in the eyes. If all goes well and the patient is ready to go home, he is released from the clinic.

The first few days after surgery. These days are dangerous for the increased risk of inflammatory processes and temporary worsening of vision. You have to be especially careful to follow all the doctor's recommendations: you should not wash your face, close your eyes too tightly, use cosmetics, strain your eyesight, it is advised to wear sunglasses. Also, you must not forget to use prescription medications and undergo regular check-ups.

Two weeks after the operation. The patient begins to return to normal life. It is allowed to increase eye strain - computer work, physical activity, etc. However, restrictions on alcohol intake, the use of mascara and other individual restrictions from the doctor remain in force.

One month later. About this time, the cornea of the eye is fully recovered from surgery. Driving a car and flying to other countries is allowed. But visits to an ophthalmologist, regular observation, and the use of medications remain necessary. Regular examinations allow you to assess the dynamics of recovery of the eye structures, to prevent the development of possible late complications, and to remain confident that your eyes are really healthy.

Lekarz jasno wyjaśnił mi sytuację
Chcę wyrazić moją szczerą wdzięczność lekarzowi za jego kompetencje, profesjonalizm i życzliwość. Lekarz jasno wyjaśnił mi sytuację, operacja (laser) zakończyła się sukcesem, a powrót do zdrowia jest szybki. Komunikacja jest komfortowa, co jest dla mnie bardzo ważne. Dziękuję pozostałym pracownikom kliniki za zrozumienie i troskę o pacjentów. Każdy wyraźnie wypełnia swoje obowiązki, jest przyjazny i energiczny. Wrażenie z całej kliniki jest jak najlepsze (organizacja, wygoda, czystość i porządek).
