Eye surgery

In Sol Eyes clinic we utilize the reliable methods of eye laser surgery as PRK and LASIK together with the experience gained from tens of thousands of surgeries in order to treat your eyes in the most beneficial way.

Myopia (nearsightedness) and mild hyperopia (farsightedness) can be treated effectively with refractive surgery. The refractive errors to be corrected are measured by an eye specialist, and at the same appointment the specialist will perform the necessary cornea measurements.

The errors that can be corrected are -0.50 – -12.0 in myopia, 0.5D-5.0D in astigmatism and 0 – +3.0D in hyperopia. The errors greater than those are usually corrected by lens surgery. This can be clarified in an appointment.


Types of surgeries


Cataract surgery

Cataract surgery is the single most frequently performed procedure in the world. Cataracts will develop for all of us sooner or later, therefore almost everyone undergoes cataract surgery at some point in their life.

Over the years, the eye’s natural lens gradually becomes clouded. The unclear lens is called a cataract. Cataracts lead to symptoms such as decreased vision, increased need of light, difficulty when reading or focusing on objects that are far away, and difficulty functioning in poor illumination or in the dark. In other words, cataracts will affect most aspects of your life.

During the procedure, the clouded natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens, improving the vision and removing the symptoms that tamper with everyday life. Patients often adapt to the progressively worsening cataract and only after the surgery do they realize how gloomy their surroundings have appeared for several years.


Presbyopia correcting surgery

The loss of the eye’s ability to shift focus from far to near vision is called presbyopia, which today can be corrected with a multifocal intraocular lens implant. This surgery is the fastest growing treatment for refractive errors.

Presbyopia is caused by reduced elasticity of the aging lens, called loss of accommodation, leading to poor near vision. The first symptoms are slow focusing, a need for stronger light and a habit of holding text further away in order to be able to read.

During the surgery, the non-accommodating natural lens is replaced with a clear acrylic lens. The lens is multifocal, enabling clear sight at different distances. Also, the unwanted property of progressive glasses (i.e. having to tilt your head to change focus between near and far) is not present with intraocular implants.

Presbyopia correction surgery will also correct refractive errors, such as shortsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The results are permanent and the artificial lens will not need to be replaced or updated. Lens exchange surgery uses the same technology as cataract surgery, where the blurred lens is replaced with an artificial lens.
