The Gemini Eye Clinic will take you on a tour around the clinic in a video spot, and will thus show you step by step what a surgery day is like.
The Gemini Eye Clinic is the largest network of eye care clinics in the Czech Republic, and with the total number of 30,000 surgeries a year the clinic ranks to the largest facility in Europe. On a daily basis, we help people who have decided to stop being limited in their everyday activities by wearing glasses or contact lenses.
Eye examination and what you can expect.
Upon the arrival at the clinic, you will be welcomed by nurses who will take your personal information. It is advisable to have your ID and a health insurance company card on you, should you be insured with any of the Czech health insurance companies. What follows is the eye examination with device measurement during which the state-of-the-art technology is used to assess the exact data of your eyesight. At the same time, the nurse will provide you with the printed information on laser eye surgery for you to read. A thorough examination is then performed by an optometrist and an ophthalmologist who will diagnose the eyesight error and will recommend the most suitable method of the visual error correction (most often with LASIK with a femtosecond laser, or a ReLEx SMILE method). Before the surgery itself, you will be given eye numbing drops which will locally anesthetise your eyes, so you do not have to worry of any pain.
You will only spend a few minutes in the laser room, during which an ophthalmology expert and an operating room nurse will take care of you. At the Gemini Eye Clinic we exclusively use German and Swiss top laser platforms for diopter removal and astigmatism treatment. The lasers ensure a safe procedure and a stable result of the surgery. The clinic thus promises its clients a lifetime guarantee on the surgery result.
Before you leave the clinic, the nurses will provide you a date of the follow-up appointment, you will receive the medical report, postoperative instructions, and sunglasses for the protection of your eyes.
During your entire stay at the clinic, you will be able to choose from various non-alcoholic beverages which will be served for free.
Laser eye surgery is an outpatient procedure. You leave the clinic after a 2-3 hour stay being accompanied by someone who will drive you home. Your new life without glasses and lenses begins the day after the surgery.
