Excimer laser is now safe and reliable alternative to the spectacle and contact lens correction of refractive errors of the eye. The essence of excimer laser surgery is a change of curvature of the cornea of the human eye by ablation of particular amount of tissue at a particular place on the front surface of cornea. In myopia the central cornea is flattened, aggravated in farsightedness and adjusted only in a particular axis in astigmatism cases. This is how correction of refractive error and change of dioptric power of the optical system of the whole eye (change of refraction) as a final result is achieved.

We provide the correction of all known refractive errors –short-sight (myopia), long-sight (hypermetropia) and astigmatism with the help of the latest excimer laser system -Allegretto Wave EYE-Q 400Hz manufactured by Wavelight. The Allegretto is considered to be the fastest and safest of all the eye correction lasers available on the world market today. The excimer eye surgery offers a reliable and safe alternative to the correction of refractive errors. It is painless and is performed at the clinic on an Outpatient Surgery basis. Since 2009, no touch surgery has been gold standard at OFTUM centers. Painless surgery technique which provides patient and surgeon comfort during surgery, excellent result and faster vision recovery. Our team of specialists chooses the safest way how to correct refractive error. It is part of our job and philosophy. As a bonus, every patient gets high quality sunglasses with UV filter.
Our technology is built on three pillars: Safety, Accuracy, Speed and results of FDA certification.
