A reliable and honest doctor would highly recommend

5 50 Laser Eye Surgeon Consultation

Didn’t do the treatment as my eyes are not suitable after a thorough examination. A reliable and honest doctor would highly recommend.

Dear Cynthia. Many Thanks for your kind review despite having found out that surgery would not be an option in your case. We understand your disappointment and are thus even more grateful for your kind review. Many thanks and best wishes.

It has been many years since my eyesight has been so good

5 50 Eye Specialist Consultation • Paid: 43588 Kč

I'd like to thank the wonderful team for the professional job
administered during my treatment at your clinic last week. It has been many years since my eyesight has been so good. On our subsequent journey through Bohemia I was able to read the traffic road signs without the use of glasses which put me in a good mentally positive mood. I
thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the weekend in general.

Now that we are home I am able to read the daily newspaper and drive at
night all without the need for glasses. Previously at night, I could see
four headlights in parallel and not two for an oncoming car which of course prevented me from nighttime driving. Words cannot express my appreciation.

Dear Ronal and James. We are thrilled to hear your positive words. Thank you! It has been an absolute pleasure having you and looking after you at the Refractive Centre Prague. Best wishes, the RCP team

Everything is so bright, we have to wear sunglasses

5 50 LASIK

My husband and I both decided to have the Refractive Lens Exchange operation in Prague, because the cost of the same operation in UK would have been impossible for us to afford. I struggled with close up reading, and hubby with distance vision. I chose the Refractive Center Prague because they had good reviews and were very responsive when I sent emails asking questions.

You have to have had a medical check-up stating you are ok to undergo local anaesthetic - we had this done at their partner clinic Next Clinic in Prague because we discovered that our GP was not prepared to do it. When you go to the Next Clinic remember to bring your passport with you, the entrance to the clinic is next to the one that says Next (go figure, maybe that’s why it’s called Next). They did blood and urine tests, an EKG and a cardiologist checks you over. The results are emailed directly to the Refractive Center the next day.

The Refractive Center in Prague is easy to find, a number of trams stop about a block away.
The receptionist didn't speak English but she was laughing and friendly, we were given new masks to wear (everywhere in Prague requires you to wear a mask due to Covid19).

The surgeon Petr came over and said hello, and then various tests ensued. There was the usual peering into lenses while a puff of air is blown into eye, then we each went through to Petr where he explained exactly what would happen regarding the surgery. He conducted more sight tests and asked us about activities, hobbies, the amount of time we spend driving, computer work etc. Then we sat while pupil dilation drops were applied. After about half an hour we went back to Petr’s office where we had to look at an intense bright light, and then sat with eyes closed to recover.

Once Petr has checked all the results and is happy, he gives the go ahead for the operation to take place, which in our case was later that afternoon. He showed us the lenses, in large clear plastic circles with rings around them. That will sit in a dome shape in eye. I think!

All these checks take some time – in our case the entire morning, but it was good to know they were being so thorough.

The hospital where the operation takes place is on the other side of the city, but it’s simple to get there by tram or uber.

When we arrived at the hospital a ray of sunshine in the form of smiling bubbly Jana (Mrs Surgeon) came to fetch us to go upstairs to the preparation room. With much laughter she tells us to relax in the room, it is all ours to use with an en suite in case we need it. She takes our blood pressure and offers us each a calming tablet in case we are nervous. We remove all jewellery and clothes and put on paper scrubs with a lovely hair net hat!

We sat in our lovely blue paper scrubs whilst Jana applied eye drops several times over the next half hour.
Then she took me to surgery, the nurses helped me climb up on the bed and lie down. Petr comes over and gives me a round rubber ring to hold, I tell him I would prefer a doughnut. He and the nurses laugh. The next 5 minutes are spent chatting about favourite foods, then he starts the surgery.
I felt nothing, could just see shapes and at one point tiny bright light speckles on a black background. Then it is all over, not even 10 minutes I don't think. Jana appears again and walks me back to the room where I get dressed and then she leads hubby away for his turn.

The operation was so quick and painless, and we received really excellent treatment. Jana tells me Petr is very experienced, over 20000 operations - so we were in good hands.

We had to wear an eye patch back to the apartment and put eye drops in every hour and wear a new eye patch for sleep to prevent us rubbing our eyes.

The next day we were out and about, as usual, my eye felt a bit uncomfortable like I had something in it. But not enough to bother me. I noticed a colour difference between my old eye and my new eye, green looked blue-ish, and white was really bright. I also found everything a bit blurry with my new eye. But, the big thing for me was I could suddenly read menus, read my phone, all without glasses! That was on the next day. Not totally clear, but I could read. Letters appeared to have a blurred outline around them, like a large 3D shadow.

2 days later we returned for a check-up. More looking at hot air balloons, puffs of air and bright lights. All good - we can ask Petr any questions later that afternoon when we go for the second operation.

The second surgery went as smoothly as the first, again it was really quick and painless. We didn't have any questions, although Jana gave us contact numbers and a card with a barcode on it which when scanned will show exactly what lens we have in our eyes.

After 2 weeks I can read and hubby can drive without glasses, although our near vision is still a bit blurry. I also see halos around bright lights, this should diminish in time. I was wondering when the blurry outline on close-up letters would go away, so I emailed Barbora at the clinic and she assured me it is quite normal as the brain has to adjust to the new lens. It should normalise in 4 to 6 weeks.

Everything is so bright, we have to wear sunglasses!

We're both really pleased we had this done, the difference is incredible. I was very impressed by the treatment and communication from all the staff at Refractive Center Prague, they are very professional and approachable. They are still in touch with me via email, and I feel comfortable knowing they are easily accessible to answer my questions.

I thoroughly recommend the Refractive Center in Prague, they are highly skilled and you are in safe hands.

Dear Julie and Gerhard. We are so pleased that your experience with our clinic has been a good one. So much so that you are willing to provide such a detailed and accurate account of your experience. This, without a doubt, will be extremely helpful to our future patients. We thank you for choosing us and for providing your feedback. Glad we could have been of service. Best of luck!

I now can see as if I had my glasses on which is a perfect result for me

5 50 Eye Specialist Consultation

I had laser eye surgery, my prescription was -6 in both eyes which meant that I was severely short-sighted. I reviewed this clinic and got in touch to ask some initial questions which they answered promptly and clearly. I then booked a date and flew to Prague to have my surgery done.

On the day of the surgery, everything went as discussed. All the staff were pleasant, spoke English and the building is modern and well maintained. The surgery went well, it took about 10 minutes for both eyes and I now can see as if I had my glasses on which is a perfect result for me. I would recommend this clinic.

My experience was very good from the reception staff to the surgeon. Everything was explained clearly; the risks, the benefits and I was armed with sufficient information to make an informed decision which ultimately resulted in a successful treatment with me now having excellent vision.

Dear Deverall. Many thanks. We appreciate your positive feedback thoroughly and are delighted to hear that everything was up to your expectations. Should you or ones close to you ever need assistance in our field of practice, do not hesitate to get back in touch!

I had laser eye surgery and the results are great, I can see now as if I had my glasses on

Laser Eye Surgeon Consultation

The treatment I had was for both eyes I was -6.50 in both eyes and was very shortsighted. I had laser eye surgery and the results are great, I can see now as if I had my glasses on.

Everything was explained clearly as due to my sight being so bad and my age it was unclear how much of an improvement there would be. However, I still went ahead as I knew there would be an improvement this was all explained very clearly.

As explained during the surgery it is painless as your eyes are anaesthetised, after there was some discomfort but not pain. However, that went after 3 to 4 hours and now everything fine. Just taking eye drops, eyes in the morning take a few minutes to adjust but it's still early days as I am only two weeks after surgery. I would highly recommend.

The people at the clinic are very professional and it is a modern clean building. Everything was explained clearly so I knew what my options were. Polite and friendly.

My experience from the first day was excellent

5 50 Cataract Surgery

I had two treatments. The first to replace the lenses, as one of them, started showing cataract changes. Also, I had severe astigmatism in both eyes, with severe vision problems. As well as a problem for near vision.

All my vision problems confined to the lens was corrected by having a new multifocal lens implanted. While astigmatism which is an uneven cornea was corrected by special laser treatment. Everything went well.

My experience from the first day was excellent. The arrangements and help to visit Prague were very friendly. Excellent care from Dr. Pter Novac the ophthalmic surgeon as everything was done professionally, care before the operation, during and after. As I am myself a medical doctor, I do strongly recommend any eye condition. I found to be the best value for money.

5 50 Eye Specialist Consultation

I highly recommend them.

I have always been heavily dependent upon glasses since as far back as I can remember.
I had my surgery in March. Dr. Petr Novák is a wonderful surgeon. I was a very scared patient, but I needn’t have worried. All the staff are excellent.

I inquired with RCP and a trustworthy gentleman named Björn who helped arrange everything and made me feel very relaxed. I would thoroughly recommend Doctor Petr Novák, because his skill and professionalism inspired me with the confidence to proceed with the operation which has changed my life for the better.

Thank you so much.

It was absolute value for money and I even got a discount

5 50 LASIK

I had a LASIK procedure done at this clinic. I chose them because I was travelling at the time and I wanted to do the surgery at a clinic near me. I’m very happy with the procedure - it’s completely changed my life and I have a lot more freedom now.

The doctors were friendly and the general staff were fantastic. I had my first follow-up a day after my surgery and the second one three days later. I’m completely recovered now. It was absolute value for money and I even got a discount in September when I went for the appointment. I would recommend them to anyone who’s thinking of having this eye treatment done. The staff speak English at this clinic and they’re very hospitable.

Hello Hasan! Thank you very much! We are so happy to helped someone changing his life a little into the better! So enjoy it and let us know how everything is working! Take care and hopefully see you again someday!

I think it was very wise and no need to rush if you want 100% satisfaction results

5 50 Laser Eye Surgeon Consultation

I came to this clinic to have my Lasik eye correction surgery (short-sightseeing). Unfortunately, I couldn't have it because Doc. Novak very kindly explained to me that my eye condition not quite suitable for this kind of surgery. I have a very dry eye syndrome. And it was not a good time for me. So it was risky to have it now. I was advised to continue to use artificial tear drops (Blink) and come back in 3-4 months. I think it was very wise and no need to rush if you want 100% satisfaction results. Hopefully, in few months I will have this surgery.

Nice, clean, modern design clinic. The staff is very friendly and speak English, German, French and of course Czech languages. The location is also very convenient and easy to get it.

Treated by: Mr Petr Novák, M.D.

Dear Lolla ! Thank you very much for your kind words. We´ve been very sad sending you home without the surgery has been done, but we are sure see you in a couple of months again here in Prague and then doing the treatment for sure. You see, safety for patients comes first, then the money. We hope that you enjoyed your time here in Prague and we promise, that you will get the same service like last time , so hopefully see you soon !

No pain and perfect eyesight

5 50 LASIK • Paid: 33000 Kč

I received the Lasik eye surgery. I have been looking all around Europe for good prices and a reputable clinic. I inquired with RCP and a gentleman named Bjorn followed up with me. The prices were the best I have seen. I was worried initially about going to a place that I have never seen before, but when I arrived, the facility was great and I instantly felt relieved. The clinic itself was very nice, very clean, with a great atmosphere. Everyone spoke English perfectly.

I have been waiting for 20 years for Lasik and I couldn't be more happy with my results. I live in Rome and came all the way to Prague for this procedure. Bjorn helped arrange everything, was extremely helpful, even offered help with accommodations. The assistance was very friendly and the doctor was amazing. He walked me through every step during the procedure so that I knew exactly what was going on, made me feel very comfortable. I felt absolutely no pain during the procedure and the discomfort after was minimal. I woke up the next morning with no pain and perfect eyesight. I highly recommend them!

Hi Dylan, thank you very much for the nice review. We really appreciate it, because it will help others for making the decission to "fix" their eyes. A big thank you from the whole RCP Team !

Laser Eye Surgery

from 1500 Kč

Specialised eye examination prior to laser eye surgery (2 hours)

The examination includes complete anamnesis as well as eye sight anamnesis, establishing the exact dioptre error (manifest refraction), detailed examination of the frontal segment of the eye, measuring of the intraocular pressure as well as the Schirmer test. Examination of the rear of the eye follows. To carry out a thorough examination of the rear of the eye it is essential to dilate the pupils through administering of special eye drops. As a result, we can also examine the periphery of the retina (this is important especially in patients with myopia) and measure the values of the so-called cycloplegic refraction (as these values may differ from the values obtained when the eye is not dilated). This process minimises the risk of miscalculation.

A part of the initial examination is also a check-up using the PENTACAM and iDESIGN devices. These provide readings essential for the surgeon to determine the suitability of the patient for laser eye surgery.

We always carry out the initial eye examination prior to laser eye surgery on a different day than the actual surgery. This is the only way to ensure optimal post-surgery results.

from 23000 Kč

iDESIGN iLASIK

iDESIGN iLASIK is the safest and most precise laser eye surgery method used for the removal of short-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. It uses technology certified by NASA, meaning that it complies with the strictest safety criteria.

iDESIGN iLASIK uses advanced and tested technology throughout the procedure and as such ensures a 100% tailor-made procedure. It is this individualisation in particular, that differentiates this method.

During the initial examination, part of which is the iDESIGN device, we immediately, in a single instant, acquire complex results of the five basic parameters of the eye. This data is as unique as a finger print. Based on these results, we are in a position to propose a tailor-made and transferring this plan into the memory of the VISX STAR S4 I laser. The laser then carries out the required changes to the curvature of the cornea with absolute precision.

The surgery is carried out under local anaesthesia applied through eye drops. Throughout the surgery, the patient is fully conscious, however registers no pain. The entire procedure lasts only a few minutes. The recuperation is very quick and the return to improved vision functions is fast.

Who is this method meant for?

Especially patients suffering from one of the following:

  • short-sightedness (low, medium and high)
  • far-sightedness (up to +4,0 dioptres)
  • astigmatism (maxim up to +/−4,5 dioptres)
  • higher degree of irregular astigmatism
  • in cases where the required post-surgery vision exceeds 100%

from 33000 Kč

Intrastromal corneal ring segments implantation (Femtolaser)

ICRS may be used in the treatment of short-sightedness (from −1.00 to −3.00 dioptres) in patients with keratoconus and with

ecstasy after refractive laser procedures

. Indication for the ICRS implantation is transparency of the central part of the cornea and intolerance to wearing contact lenses. The first step is the plan of the procedure. A 

thorough analysis

of the patient’s data acquired in the initial

examination at the corneal advisory centre

is carried out. An

optimal type of ICRS

is determined (shape, curvature and thickness of the segment, how many degrees of the circular segment, one or two segments) so that optimal post-surgery results may be achieved.

from 20000 Kč

FemtoLASIK (LASIK with IntraLase)

The FemtoLASIK method is a superb modern technology of removal dioptres using two latest lasers: femtosecond laser iFS and excimer laser VISX STAR S4 IR, both from Johnson & Johnson, an American company.

The ultra-fast femtosecond laser is used (using the principle of photo-disruption) to create a thin lamella on the cornea. The Laser beam is focused into one single point where energy is concentrated, and the tissue of the cornea immediately turns to gas (it literally evaporates). The lamella created in this way is more perfect and smoother then when an oscillating blade is used. The lamella in the cornea is then lifted to the side and using the effect of the excimer laser, the cornea is re-shaped into the required shape and curvature as a result of which the dioptre error is corrected. Once done, the lamella of the cornea is returned to its original position and the surgery is completed.

We recommend this method specifically to patients with the following:

  • short-sightedness (lower, medium as well as higher)
  • far-sightedness (from +4,0 dioptres on)
  • relatively symmetrical astigmatism (up to +/−4,5 dioptres max.)
  • uncomplicated refractive error without significant asymmetry

from 12000 Kč

PRK - Photorefractive Keratectomy

The PRK method is the oldest refractive laser techniques of all but, in some cases, it is still the best option available. In essence, this is correcting the curvature of the cornea, once the epithelium has been mechanically removed. Once the surface of the cornea has been desensitised using anaesthetic eye drops, and the epithelium has been removed (using a surgical instrument or a little brush) the laser procedure is carried out within the surface layers of the stroma.

Because the epithelium forms a sort of natural shield, without which the eye becomes extremely vulnerable or even painful, the cornea must be covered using a contact lens after the procedure. The covering layer of the epithelium is regenerated relatively fast, over the course of the following few days, but even so the healing process is often accompanied by pain and un-sharp vision. The unpleasant feelings associated with the surgery usually cease within the next 3 to 4 days. The definite healing over of the cornea and complete vision stabilisation is largely individual but usually this happens within the next few weeks or months. Optimal vision may be expected within one month or a little longer. This is why (unlike procedures of the LASIK type) we always carry out the surgery of one eye first and the surgery of the other eye is recommended to be completed within the next one to six months after the first one.

We recommend this procedure to patients with one of the following:

  • short-sightedness and astigmatism (low dioptre error of up to −2,0 dioptres)
  • patients with cornea that is too thin
  • as a re-operation having undergone another procedure previously (with the possibility of an individualised procedure)

from 5000 Kč

PTK - Phototherapeutic Keratectomy

This procedure is usually carried out under topical (surface) anaesthesia. Once the epithelium is removed, the patient actively co-operates by having to follow a fixed point. Only with eccentric or peripheral lesion the surgeon must manually turn the head or the eye of the patient or possibly use a joystick to place the laser beam in the desired spot.

PTK is carried out using an excimer laser (193 nm) and uses the principle of photoablation – the interruption the connection between molecules. A single pulse of the laser removes exactly 0.25 micrometres of corneal tissue. In this way, we have an option to plan ahead the exact desired change of the shape and ensure that the treated surface will be smooth and regular – this will improve the visual result. In case of treatment of the Recurrent Corneal Erosion the aim is to reach a dioptrically neutral result – meaning keeping the original dioptres. In such a case, the depth of the ablation on the entire surface, in the range of 6–9 millimetres, is only some 5–6 µm.

If the cornea is otherwise healthy, it is possible to combine the therapeutic effect PTK also with improved refraction. In such a case we are talking about carrying out PRK as PTK. In this way it is possible to eliminate myopia, possibly also myopia combined with astigmatism.

After the procedure we cover the surface of the cornea with a contact lens so that the pain is minimised. The pain following this type of surgery may be very intensive in the first 2–3 days post-surgery. We keep the contact lens in the eye for the duration of 2–4 weeks. The patient must, at the same time, apply antibiotic eyedrops. Once the contact lens is removed, the regular steps of preventing the formation of erosion apply – application of lubricants.

Eye Care

from 19500 Kč

Cataract Surgery

During cataract surgery, the surgeon firstly removes the cloudy natural lens from the eye and in most cases replaces it with a clear artificial intraocular lens. The surgery is usually ambulatory and does not require hospitalisation. Most modern cataract surgeries are carried out using a high-frequency ultrasound device that divides the cloudy lens into miniscule pieces. These fragments are subsequently gently suctioned out of the eye.

This method, known as 

phacoemulsification (or simply phaco), is performed using much smaller incisions than were used in previous surgical techniques for the elimination of a cataract. These incisions enable faster healing and reduce the risk of complications such as for example the detachment of the retina. 

Once all the bits of the affected lens are removed from within the eye, the surgeon inputs the clear new artificial intraocular lens. The surgeon then secures the lens in the area beyond the iris and pupil – into the exact same spot where your natural lens was originally.

The surgeon then completes the procedure by closing the incisions in the eye (sutures may or may not be used) and a protective bandage is placed over the eye.

Eye Exam
from 1500 Kč

Specialised eye examination prior to intraocular eye surgery (3 hours)

Before undergoing the procedure, it is required to first have a thorough and entirely painless complex eye examination. It includes complete anamnesis of the patient’s eyesight, establishing the exact dioptre error, detailed examination of the frontal segment of the eye, measuring of the intraocular pressure as well as the tear test. It further includes examination of the intraocular lens as well as the rear segment of the eye.

It is essential to administer special eye drops to dilate the pupil prior to this examination. In this way, it is possible to discover any dislocation of the lens, the loosening of the suspensory apparatus, pathology of the pupil casing or any anomaly of the vitreous humour. It further enables us to examine the retina including the periphery of the central visual field and the optic nerve.

Examination using the unique PENTACAM device is part of the initial examination. The AL-SCAN device enables us to carry out a biometric examination of the eye with a subsequent calculation of the dioptre value of the implanted lens. Should it be necessary, we will carry out other specialised examinations such as the examination of the field of vision, strabismus analysis, OCT etc.

Based on these results, the surgeon will establish whether intraocular eye surgery / cataract surgery is suitable. Having done all of the above and having taken into consideration the patient’s expectations and the specialist’s recommendations, it is possible to determine the ideal type of intraocular lens.

from 1000 Kč

Preventive eye examination  (1 hour 30 mins)

Our complex eye examination takes about 90 to 120 minutes. It is entirely painless. It involves establishing complete eye anamnesis, determining exact dioptre error, a thorough examination of the frontal segment of the eye, measuring of the intraocular pressure as well as the Schirmer test.

In addition, during the examination we also check the rear of the eye whereby it is necessary to administer special eye drops that dilate the pupil. We perform the examination of the cornea and the entire frontal segment of the eye using PENTACAM.

Examination by a corneal disease  (1 hour 30 mins)

We offer our patients suffering from corneal diseases an examination at our specialised corneal disease examination centre. This examination centre boasts the unique PENTACAM device that enables early diagnosis of keratoconus (the progressive thinning and deviation of the cornea) as well as other ailments affecting the cornea including post-traumatic conditions.

The initial examination at our specialised corneal disease centre takes 1.5 to 2 hours and it is entirely painless. It includes complete anamnesis of the patient’s eyesight, establishing the exact dioptre error, detailed examination of the frontal segment of the eye, measuring of the intraocular pressure as well as the tear test. Examination of the rear segment of the eye follows. To do this, it is essential to dilate the pupils using special eye drops.

The consultant is Dr. Petr Novák, who is involved with this specialised segment of ophthalmology as part of his clinical practice. As such it is possible to follow up onto other specialised examinations as well as operative solutions including the transplantation of the cornea.

Implantation of Phakic lens Visian ICL

This surgical procedure is meant primarily for the correction of a greater degree of short-sightedness and far-sightedness. It is used in cases where a laser surgical procedure would be ineffective or risky. Today, it is also possible, in some cases, to resolve the problem of presbyopia using a phakic multifocal lens.

This is an intraocular surgical procedure that we perform only in case whereby the patient fulfils relatively strict pre-surgery criteria (sufficient density and quality of endothelial cells in the cornea, suitable anatomical requirements, normal intraocular pressure).

During the procedure we place the implant (phakic lens) inside the eye, into the optical axis while at the same time keeping the natural lens (as opposed to the refractive extraction of the lens). Combining the implanted lens together with the natural lens we achieve the required correction of the dioptre error. At the same time, we maintain accommodation (focusing) of the natural human lens in case of myopia and hyper-myopia in younger individuals or we replace accommodation when resolving presbyopia.

Probably the most often used phakic implant is a lens implanted behind the iris, once that copies the frontal surface of the natural lens. This type of lens is known as the intraocular contact (Implantable Contact Lens – ICL) and is the only method used in case of correcting presbyopia.

Today, this procedure is most commonly performed under local anaesthesia once the eye has been desensitised using eyedrops. It is also possible to perform this surgery under complete anaesthesia. The patient is required to rest after the surgery and to apply the prescribed eye drops. The surgery of the other eye is performed 2 days to two weeks after the first eye depending on the type of the implant used and the individual healing ability.

RLE - Refractive Lens Exchange
from 29000 Kč

PRELEX (Presbyopic Lens Exchange)

The term PRELEX is used to describe a surgical method whereby we replace the natural lens with an artificial multifocal or EDOF (Extended Depth of Focus) lens.

The surgery takes place as part as an outpatient clinic and the operated eye is desensitised using eyedrops. At the same time medication dilating the pupil is administered, so that the lens positioned behind the colourful iris, becomes accessible for the surgical procedure. In patients that are very nervous or anxious it is possible to administer a calming pill. The procedure itself takes about 15 minutes. In some clinics, both eyes are operated at the same time. At our clinic, we opt to only operate one eye at a time for several reasons. The other eye is operated within 2 days from the first surgery.

The main surgical incision is done through the cornea. Depending on the type of implant, the incision is most commonly 2 to 2.5 mm wide and because of its self-sealing property there is no need for sutures.

RLE - Refractive Lensectomy

RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange) is a general name for a method, whereby a transparent lens (without any signs of cataract) is replaced by an artificial lens (monofocal or multifocal). This method is used in patients with any of the following: short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia.

The surgery takes place as part as an outpatient clinic and the operated eye is desensitised using eyedrops. At the same time medication dilating the pupil is administered, so that the lens positioned behind the colourful iris, becomes accessible for the surgical procedure. In patients that are very nervous or anxious it is possible to administer a calming pill. The procedure itself takes about 15 minutes. In some clinics, both eyes are operated at the same time. At our clinic, we opt to only operate one eye at a time for several reasons. The other eye is operated within 2 days from the first surgery.
