Eye surgery has known an enormous evolution during the past few years and is one of the most technological areas within the field of medicine. The introduction of new equipment such as the Visumax femtosecond laser has made it possible for most patients to work and drive again only 48 hours after the eye surgery. On the other hand, the increased complexity of the equipment requires a much higher degree of expertise from the surgeon.
The new generation of measurement equipment is capable of mapping the exact shape of the eye with extremely high precision.
These measurements are important for the planning of the surgery. You will notice that all examinations at Medifocus are being executed meticulously.
Typical for an extramural centre like Medifocus is the efficient way of healthcare provision in combination with a high degree of flexibility. After an intensive eye examination, your eye treatments are adapted to your personal needs and desires. Indeed, not 2 patients are alike. Everyone has his own profession, hobbies and lifestyle. The customisation of the eye treatments to these factors is one of the most important keys to success.
