Frequently asked questions

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

Exceptionally high. In about 95% of the treatments, there are no residual vision defects. But if this is the case, they can usually be corrected with a second surgery.

Can vision be corrected with a laser more than once?

Yes, if your cornea is thick enough

Does laser vision correction last a lifetime?

Yes. Usually, after your laser eye surgery, you won't need glasses for distance for the rest of your life. Deterioration is very rare, and if it happens, it affects patients who already had a very high diopter value before the surgery.

Are there any scientific studies and findings on laser eye surgery?

Laser eye surgeries have been successfully performed since the 1990s. During this time, over 35 million corrections have taken place worldwide. Based on this large number, the following can be summarized from various studies: *About 90% of patients with nearsightedness of up to -6 diopters can manage without visual aids after laser eye surgery.

  • At 0.5%, the risk of complications is similarly low to that of contact lens wearers.

For which age group is laser eye treatment an option?

Basically, about 98% of 18- to 45-year-olds are eligible for laser eye treatment. In some circumstances, laser correction is also possible for people over 45 years of age. As a rule, however, the replacement of the lenses is preferable from this age. We offer this as well. Which treatment method is actually suitable for you will be clarified and discussed in detail in our free and non-binding examinations.
