GEMINI in Zlin is wll-known for laser cataract and refractive surgeries with the VICTUS femtosecond laser platform not only among the patients but also among the ophthalmologists from all around the world who come to observe the surgeries. Lately, the clinic in Zlin has been visited by eye specialists from Great Britain, Russia, USA, India, Tunisia, Belgium, Italy, France, Spain, Norway, Iran, etc. Last year, personal ophthalmologist of the King of Bahrain Dr. Moemen Al-Reefy unexpectedly decided to undergo this laser surgery of lens during his few-day visit and observation of the clinic.
The latest visitors came from Brazil and they were dr. Joao Pessoa Sousa with his wife, also an ophthalmologist – actually the head surgeon of the clinic they both work. They admired not only the setup of the clinic and its state-of-the-art equipment. They also were astonished by the precision of the VICTUS femtosecond laser in both cataract and refractive surgeries performed by Dr. Stodůlka. Dr. Sousa is an ex-president of the SOPE ohpthalmological society, an assistan professor of ophthalmology at Unidade Acadêmica das Ciências da Vida da Universidade Federal de Campina Grande and Universidade Federal da Paraíba, Brazil.
Dr. Stodůlka lectured on laser catataract surgeries using the VICTUS femtosecond laser platform in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at one of the most prestigious eye care hospitals in Saudi Arabia. At the beginning of this year an ophthalmological publication was published with the title Femtolaser Cataract Surgery with dr. Stodůlka`s article.
The VICTUS femtosecond laser platform is the first platform for laser corrections of diopters as well as laser surgeries of the lens. GEMINI Eye Clinic participated in its development process. GEMINI was the first facility in Central Europe to use VICTUS for cataract surgeries and at present there are two VICTUS lasers installed at GEMINI in Zlin, which makes the clinic the only facility in the Czech Republic to possess the VICTUS laser platform.
