Zeiss Mel 90 Excimer Laser

LASER refractive surgery is a treatment method that was developed with the idea of correcting diopters. The surgery can be performed on both eyes in the same session.

Benefits of the Zeiss MEL 90 Excimer Laser

  • The FLEXIQUENCE function gives us the possibility to choose between 250 and 500 Hz, which means a reduced duration of the surgery. The 500 Hz frequency can produce an ablation speed of 1.3 seconds for 1 diopter. Shorter treatments are more comfortable for the patient and create less anxiety
  • fast eye tracker with short response time
  • Triple-A profile, MEL 90’s advanced ablation algorithm combines the available profiles found in previous lasers

Laser Technologies

PRK: This is the lowest-risk of all laser vision correction surgeries. This is backed up by studies on patients operated on over the years in Europe and the US, and is a technology first patented and used in 1987, more than 30 years ago. Surgeons have thus had a long experience with it, and time has allowed clear tracking of its effects.

LASIK is the second, recently developed technology, and FemtoLASIK is the even more advanced version, which involves performing LASIK surgery with 2 lasers. A corneal flap is cut with the femto-laser and the diopters are corrected with the Excimer laser. At the end, the created flap is put back in place.

SMILE is part of the third generation, the latest in the world of ophthalmology. SMILE surgery is the only one that offers patients the highest degree of comfort – it is painless, the discomfort is absolutely minimal and recovery is within a few days. Within 72 hours, patients can resume their daily activities. The results are spectacular even 30 minutes after surgery.

Important note regarding patient consultations and surgery appointments

A patient who cancels a consultation or surgery appointment once, at least one day prior to the scheduled appointment, has the right to a second appointment under the same conditions.
If the patient cancels the second consultation and/or surgery appointment, a new appointment can be made only if the patient accepts to pay for both the consultation and the surgery in advance. This can be done either by payment order or in cash at the clinic reception.
A patient who does not show up for their consultation or surgery, who does not cancel the appointment in due time, or does not answer the clinic’s calls, may request a second appointment only if they pay for the consultation/surgery in advance. 
Patients requesting an appointment for retinal surgeries or laser Prk/Femtolasik/Smile Pro must pay 30% of the cost of the surgery in advance. The appointment will be scheduled only after receiving the advance payment. If the patient is unable to attend the scheduled consultation or surgery, and cancels the intervention at least 48 hours beforehand, they will be refunded in full. If the patient does not show up and does not cancel or contact the clinic at least 48 hours in advance, the advance paid is considered to be lost as damages and will no longer be refunded.
