Why choose Copenhagen Eye Centre?
Refractive laser and lens surgery performed to eliminate or minimise the use of glasses or contact lenses has become increasingly popular and frequent. When the big decision about surgery has been taken, the next important issue is choice of treatment technique and surgeon.
WHY CHOOSE COPENHAGEN EYE CENTRE?
You should choose us, if you aim for minimal eye surgery performed by the most competent, experienced and active European surgeons in a safe and personal environment. We guarantee the highest professional standards and use the proven, pioneering and game-changing ReLEx smile technique performed with ZEISS VisuMax as well as the most advanced lens surgery. We do not compromise with professional treatment indications to obtain a short-term financial gain, and the treatments, that we offer at the Centre, are the same that we would recommend to our closest relatives.
RELEX SMILE – MINIMAL LASER SURGERY ON THE CORNEA
In 2011 Copenhagen Eye Centre was the first private clinic in Northern Europe to use the proven, pioneering and game-changing ReLEx smile laser technique carried out with the most advanced, stationary laser (Carl Zeiss VisuMax 500 kHz). ReLEx smile (SMall Incision Lenticular Extraction) is state of the art in laser treatment of myopia and astigmatism and has many advantages over older methods as LASIK, FS-LASIK, EpiLASIK and LASEK (PRK and by some named “no cut technique”). Smile is a “flap-less” minimal corneal surgical procedure, optimizing corneal stability after treatment. This is a significant advance over LASIK, where the long “flap-opening” and subsequent reduced corneal stability, have discouraged pilots, military personnel, athletes and others from using the method. The LASIK “flap-opening” is the single most important reason why some professional ophthalmologists are sceptical about refractive laser treatments, and the disadvantage is eliminated with smile.
MOST ADVANCED LENS SURGERY
We have extensive experience of all surgical lens techniques, using only the latest and best of these. We use minimally invasive lens surgery that requires an incision only a few mm long without stitches. Choice of lens type for the individual patient depends on the correction needed and is determined during our thorough pre-examination, and interview with/examination by the lens surgeon.
MOST EXPERIENCED SURGEONS
We have the most experienced laser and lens surgeons. Eye Surgeon Sven Asp, MD, DMSci is the leading laser surgeon at the Centre and has performed more than 12.000 treatments, of which more than 7.00 have been smile treatments (a european record). Dr Asp holds a permanent position as laser surgeon at the Department of Ophthalmology at Aarhus University Hospital (Northern Europe´s leading center in eye laser surgery), and performs more than 30 additional smile treatments every week. Our lens Surgery is headed by Professor Thomas K. Olsen, MD, DMSCi, who has performed more than 12.000 lens operations and is recognised in professional circles as one of Europe’s most competent refractive lens surgeons. For more than twenty years, Professor Olsen has been responsible for the most advanced lens surgery at Aarhus University Hospital.
We guarantee a course of treatment, where you are in close contact with the surgeon or our experienced optometrists from the pre-examination to the last control. From start to finish you will receive accurate information about risks and benefits of treatment, and we take the time to discover your expectations and to answer all your questions.
