Other Vision Correction Procedures
At FreeVis, we offer our patients a broad spectrum of vision correction surgery.
Phakic Lens Implants
A phakic lens is an additional synthetic lens that is implanted into the eye to correct the existing refractive error.
Laser Refractive Lens Surgery with a Femtosecond Laser
A lens exchange is used in cases of severe refractive errors. The eye's own natural lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens.
A multifocal lens can provide relief for presbyopia at well as for nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Correction of Astigmatism
Femto-LASIK (individual LASIK)
LASIK corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness with an accompanying astigmatism of up to 5 dpt.
Toric lenses correct nearsightedness or farsightedness with an accompanying astigmatism. They can be used for lens implants and lens exchanges.
Astigmatic keratotomy is only used to reduce severe astigmatism of approximately 5 dpt or higher.
Collagen Cross-Linking using Riboflavin and UVA exposure
Collagen Cross-Linking is used to stabilize a weakened cornea due to a keratoconus or keratectasia.
Various procedures can be combined to perfect the result.
The combination of a lens implant/exchange and a subsequent LASIK procedure is most commonly used to eliminate any remaining refractive error, for example an existing astigmatism.
Laser Refractive Lens Surgery with Multifocal Lens Implants
The natural lens is removed and replaced with a multifocal synthetic lens that provides relief for presbyopia as well as for nearsightedness or farsightedness.
With Monovision LASIK, one eye is treated for distance vision and the other eye (usually non-dominant eye) is treated for near vision.
