Near-sightedness

Near-sightedness is one of the most common diseases of the modern world. Unfortunately, near-sightedness is quite widespread. It occurs in both children and adults. According to the World Health Organization, 800 million people on our planet suffer from myopia.

REMEMBER! A timely consultation with an ophthalmologist will help you to prevent severe complications of myopia and save your vision!

The problem of near-sightedness can be successfully solved by refractive surgery. It was founded by S.N. Fyodorov. Surgery techniques, tools and special microsurgery instruments are constantly developed and improved. Software-based precise calculations can predict surgery outcomes on a case by case basis. All this allow nearsighted people to see the world with their own eyes.

To determine the degree of near-sightedness and choose the most suitable treatment, ophthalmologists from the Eye Microsurgery CSTC will carry out all required examinations using modern diagnostic equipment.

TREATMENT

To correct near-sightedness specialist of the Eye Microsurgery CSTC successfully use the most modern surgical technologies. The objective of such surgeries is to improve the refraction of a near-sighted eye.

The most effective, safe and popular method of the near-sightedness correction for 1.0 to 12 diopter myopia is personalized or standard FemtoLASIK. Specialists of the laser refraction department of the Eye Microsurgery CSTC perform this surgery using the most modern femtosecond laser.

Surgery FemtoLASIK Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes: 5-7 days (preoperative examination 1-2 days, surgery on two eyes on the 2nd or 3rd day, postoperative follow up: 1-2 days, postoperative follow up: 3-4 days)
Surgery Personalized surgeries Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes: 5-7 days (preoperative examination 1-2 days, surgery on two eyes on the 2nd or 3rd day, postoperative follow up: 1-2 days, postoperative follow up: 3-4 days)

When FemtoLASIK is not indicated, patients with myopia can have photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).

Photorefractive keratectomy Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes: 7-10 days (preoperative examination 1-2 days, surgery on two eyes on the 2nd or 3rd day, postoperative follow up: 3-4 days)

The surgery is based on precise computer calculations for each patient. Their main advantages are painless and the highest accuracy of exposure.

Currently, to correct near-sightedness of above 16.0 diopters, patients over 18 year old can have cutting surgeries, e.g., placement of a miniature lens (IOL) in front of the patient’s eye lens). It neutralizes the excess refraction of a near-sighted eye.

Implantation of a negative IOL Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes: 10-12 days (preoperative examination 1-2 days, surgery on one eye on the 3rd or 4th day, postoperative follow up: 2 days, surgery of the other eye on the 6-8th day, postoperative follow up: 2-4 days)

Patients over 18 years old with severe near-sightedness and myopic anisometropia, initial lens sclerosis with high visual acuity, severe bilateral myopia can have surgeries for removing a transparent lens or substituting it with an IOL.

Removal of a transparent lensor its substitution with an IOL Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes in severe cases of myopia: 7-8 days (preoperative examination 1-2 days, on the 3rd day – preventive peripheral laser coagulation of the retina (when indicated), on the 4-5th day – surgery, postoperative follow-up – 2-3 days)

Each surgery has its own indications and contraindications. Your doctor will choose the optimal surgery for your eyes taking into account all examination results.

All of the above surgery techniques are applied for stabilized near-sightedness, but patients aged 18 to 50 years with myopia of 1.5 to 6 diopters can have scleroplasty surgeries to stop the pathologic growth of myopia.

Scleroplasty surgeries Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes: 4-5 days (preoperative examination – 1-2 days, surgery on two eyes – on the 2nd or 3rd day, postoperative follow up – 1-2 days)

Laser retinal coagulation is performed to prevent any possible complications of myopia.

High qualification of specialists of the laser surgery department of the Eye Microsurgery CSTC and the use of modern technologies allow achieving brilliant results in the treatment of any patients suffering from this ailment.
