Four simple steps

At betterview, laser eye treatment or lens treatment takes place in four simple steps:

Four simple steps image
1

Preliminary examination

Open Icon

During a 30-minute, free, no-obligation preliminary examination, we determine your eye’s suitability for treatment. Among other things, we measure the visual aids you already use and check your cornea's thickness and visual acuity.

2

Main examination

Open Icon

Further tests are required for the best possible performance and maximum treatment safety. During your free, no-obligation main examination, which takes 45 to 60 minutes, we carry out all the necessary tests and determine possible treatment methods.

3

Treatment

Open Icon

Perfect vision in a few minutes. The actual laser treatment takes less than a minute per eye and is pain-free. For laser correction, we use either our excimer laser or our femtosecond laser. We decide which laser device to use during the main examination. Afterwards, you can relax in our lounge in a feel-good atmosphere until you feel ready to go home. It's worth allowing a little extra time for your treatment appointment.

4

Follow-up

Open Icon

Depending on your treatment method, the follow-up takes place either directly the next day or after five days. By using a special technique and a slit lamp, we examine the eye's front and back sections to ensure that your treatment has had the desired success and that the eye is healing optimally.

Long-sightedness

Need to know icon

  • Femto LASIK up to +4.00 dioptres
  • TransPRK up to +3.00 dioptres
  • Refractive lens exchange up to +15.00 dioptres

Corneal Curvature

Need to know icon

In the case of corneal curvature, also astigmatism, a permanent correction can be achieved with these treatment methods:

  • Femto LASIK and TransPRK up to 6.00 dioptres
  • Refractive lens exchange up to 5.00 dioptres
  • Lens implantation up to 6.00 dioptres

Presbyopia

Need to know icon

Presbyopia is not a refractive error of the eye but a symptom of ageing. The eye's lens gradually loses its elasticity. As a result, it becomes more difficult to see close-up and requires more effort. Presbyopia can be treated with a refractive lens exchange. With a multifocal artificial lens, you will have clear vision at all distances again after treatment.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

These are the most important, frequently asked questions and answers about your laser eye treatment or lens treatment at betterview. If you need further information or have any questions, please get in touch with us.

What is the probability of success for my laser eye correction?

Exceptionally high. In approximately 95% of treatments, there is no residual refractive error. However, if this is the case, we can usually correct it with a second treatment. The probability of a residual correction increases slightly with the level of refractive error.

Will laser eye treatment last a lifetime?

Yes. After laser eye treatment, you can normally dispense with distance glasses for the rest of your life. Deterioration is very rare and affects people who already had a very high dioptre value before the treatment.

What ages are suitable for a laser eye treatment?

Generally, about 98% of all 18 to 45-year-olds are suitable for laser eye treatment. There may also be a possibility of laser vision correction for people over the age of 45. However, starting at the age of 45, a refractive lens exchange is preferable and available at betterview. We clarify and discuss in detail which treatment method is most suitable for you in our free, no-obligation examinations.

How does a refractive lens exchange work?

A refractive lens exchange involves replacing your natural lens with an artificial lens. The procedure corrects severe ametropia as well as presbyopia, and prevents cataracts.

betterview also offers lens treatments. Which methods are offered exactly?

In addition to lens implantation, betterview also offers refractive lens exchange. Both treatments are alternatives to laser eye treatment. They can also be used to treat people whose eyes may not be suitable for laser eye treatment, for example, due to severe ametropia, advanced age, or a cornea that is too thin.

How does lens treatment work?

Lens treatment at betterview, like laser eye treatment, takes place in four steps: a free and no-obligation preliminary examination, a detailed main examination, the treatment and the subsequent follow-ups.
