How does the Eye work?
Each eye is unique, with its own optical and architectural properties. The quality of vision is largely determined by the size and shape of our eyes.
With normal vision, the dimensions of the different structures of the eye are in harmony, especially the curvature of the cornea with the axial length of the eye. The image perceived by the eye is then projected exactly onto the retina (focus) and is clearly perceived by the brain.
If these structures are inconsistent, the image is not correctly perceived, which results in "Refractive error" such as Myopia, Hypermetry or Astigmatism.
The eye is too long, the image forms in front of the retina
= Poor distance vision.
The eye is too short, the image forms behind the retina
= Poor near vision (and far after 40 years)
The cornea is irregular (rugby ball)
= Blurry and distorted image
Why Choose Us
- Femto Lasik, which combines Femtosecond and Excimer laser is the reference technique for myopia under 10 diopters, except for too thin corneas.
- For very strong Myopia and strong Astigmatism, or in the event of a contraindication for excimer laser, intraocular implantation by refracting implants is the possible alternative.
