Eligible patients

  • patients between 21 and 55 years of age who are not eligible for laser vision correction
  • this procedure is applied in cases of high myopia and hyperopia
  • visual acuity not lower than 0.5
  • patients dissatisfied with their vision through glasses or contact lenses
  • patients in good health condition

The patient eligibility test determines whether it is possible to perform the procedure on the patient, as well as the expected effect and risk level. The test takes approximately 2 hours, during which, the pupils are dilated which will cause temporary deterioration of vision acuity. The week prior to the scheduled eligibility test, we advise patients that they must not wear soft contact lenses.
