The treatment of hyperopia, or farsightedness, with ReLEx Smile method was in the Czech Republic first carried out in October 2017. Pavel Stodůlka was the eye surgeon. The surgery was unique also globally – the Gemini Eye Clinic thus became the fifth eye care facility to use the technique. Since then, tens and tens of patients have come to the clinic to be operated on with the use of ReLEx Smile at the Gemini Eye Clinic. Dr. Stodůlka also lectures on his experience with this pain-free technique. The last time he presented on ReLEx Smile procedures was in Athens.
Chief eye surgeon Stodůlka introduced his experience with the ReLEx Smile method of hyperopia treatment to eye surgeons at the ESCRS (European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery) Conference in Athens. It was he who became the first surgeon to enable patients at a Czech ophthalmological clinic to get rid of their spectacles with the use of the method as mentioned above.
