FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find the most important questions and answers about betterview. If your question is not answered here, please feel free to contact us directly.

Can I have my eyes lasered?

Generally, about 98% of all 18- to 45-year-olds are suitable for laser eye treatment. Laser treatment is possible for corneal curvature, short-sightedness and hyperopia long-sightedness up to certain diopter values. For those over the age of 45, refractive lens exchange is usually the better choice. The best way to find out whether you are suitable for one of these methods, and if so, which one, is to visit our shop in Zurich for a free preliminary examination.

How does laser treatment at betterview Zurich work?

In a no obligation and free preliminary examination in our shop in Zurich, we first determine whether you are suitable for laser eye treatment: our medical specialists check your cornea and your visual aids, among other things. During the subsequent consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions that may be on your mind. The second appointment is for the general examination, which is also free of charge and no obligation for you. Our optometrists carry out all of the examinations required for safe and successful treatment. The actual laser treatment on the day of treatment takes less than 15 minutes: your eyes are anaesthetised with eye drops and then corrected with the laser. Depending on the method, the follow-up takes place the following day or five days later.

Will the treatment last a lifetime?

As a rule, those treated can dispense with visual aids such as contact lenses or glasses in the long term after laser correction. With very high diopter values, vision can deteriorate again—but this is very rare. In most cases, laser treatment can be repeated. However, laser eye treatment does not prevent presbyopia, which occurs around the age of 45. This is a natural sign of ageing that can be compensated for using reading glasses or varifocals or, alternatively, permanently corrected by a refractive lens exchange.

How long does it take until I reach 6/6 vision?

The healing process differs depending on the laser method. With Femto LASIK, the vision of most clients improved significantly the very next day. However, it can take several weeks to months until the visual acuity is stable and the actual final result is reached.

What happens during treatment with LASIK?

Femto LASIK is one of the most frequently used laser eye treatments in the world. It is completely painless and takes only a few minutes per eye: at the beginning, your eyes are anaesthetised with eye drops. With the so-called femtosecond laser, a circular lid, the so-called "flap", is then created in the uppermost corneal layer and folded to the side. The corneal layer underneath, now exposed, can then be corrected with the excimer laser. Finally, the flap is brought back into its original position. The flap acts like the body's own wound dressing, which is why the healing process is quick and painless. Most clients can enjoy significantly improved visual acuity the very next day.

Can I go blind from laser eye treatment?

No, in more than 25 years, there has not been a single case in which a person has gone blind directly due to laser vision correction. The laser works exclusively on the cornea—the optic nerve, for example, remains completely untouched during the treatment. In addition, our state-of-the-art eye lasers are equipped with a so-called eye tracker, which automatically switches off the laser at the slightest eye movement. Eye conditions such as infection can occur after laser treatment. Eye diseases occur very rarely and can be treated.
