Laser eye corrections
Today`s state-of-the-art lasers allow gentle removal of eye disorders such as myopia or hypermetropia, as well as astigmatism. At our clinic we also treat presbyopia (the need of reading glasses which often appears after the age of 40) with laser.
Cataract is a common eye disorder in older age. The clouding of the lens prevents from creating the clear image on the retina. The only possible treatment for cataract is surgery with an artificial intraocular lens. In the Czech Republic there are more than 70 000 cataract surgeries carried out annually. Thanks to Dr. Stodulka, GEMINI Eye Clinic is known for microincision cataract surgeries and for first laser cataract surgeries in Europe with the VICTUS femtosecond platform.
Treatment of retina and vitreous
Vitreoretinal center of GEMINI Eye Clinic provides diagnostics and treatment of retinal and vitreous disorders. The head ophthalmologist of the center is Dr. Pavel Cejka. Dr. Jaroslav Polisenky is another member of the vitreoretinal team. All the examinations as well as the surgeries are done on an outpatient basis. The surgeries may be scheduled to weekdays as well as to the weekends and bank holidays.
Are you experiencing problems with seeing when reading? If yes, you might be suffering from presbyopia (the need of reading glasses).
When we reach our 40s or 50s, changes to our vision begin to make our every day activities such as reading the newspapers, menus, text messaging more difficult. It is a natural part of the process of aging. As we grow older, the natural lens loses its flexibility and ability to accomodate which helps us to focus on objects close up. This change of vision is called presbyopia.
More on presbyopia treatment
Keratoconus (from Greek kerato, i.e. cornea) is the eye disorder in which the usual shape of cornea is unlike the usual round shape rather conical. The conical bulge deforms the vision. The progress of the disorder depends on the patient`s age and also the duration of it. The sooner the beginning of the disorder is, the faster the progress. Keratconus usually affects both eyes, typically asymetrically.
