Hear about the former national Bjørn Kristensen's experience

Former national Bjørn Kristensen became free of glasses after treatment at The Eye Centre.


Contact lenses bothered the training

Rasmus is one of the country's absolute best triathletes with several victories in major international competitions. His big dream is that the discipline will be on the Olympic program, and that he will represent Denmark at the world's largest sporting event. He had always used contact lenses in training and in competitions, but the lenses had started to bother him quite a lot.
Recommends the SMILE-treatment

The SMILE-treatment was largely without discomfort and already after two days I slowly resumed training. The process at The Eye Centre was really professional and can only be recommended”.

Former national football player Bjørn Kristensen

The former nationalteam player and foreign professional footballer with a past in AGF, Newcastle and Portsmouth, among others, Bjørn Kristensen is incredibly happy to finally be able to throw away his glasses and contact lenses. He was convinced to have surgery because he knew a lot of people who had already had the surgery.

“Of course I was nervous before the treatment, but it was all done professionally and calmly, and I felt pretty much nothing along the way. Everyday life is just easier when there is no need for glasses, even if I still reach for them in the morning.”

Radio host and speaker Mads Vangsø had to row across the Atlantic, as part of the 5000 km rowing race Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge back in December 2018.

"For many years I had wanted to get rid of my "bucket stone glasses", but no eye surgeon dared to embark on the somewhat complicated project. In connection with the rowing race across the Atlantic, spectacle independence is absolutely crucial, and after thorough research, I found out that Sven is one of Europe's most experienced laser surgeons. Now here, two months after the operation, I am very relieved that the sight is in place before the big rowing adventure, and can warmly recommend The Eye Centre and Sven Asp”.

"I showed up at The Eye Centre in Charlottenlund for the first time in the summer of 2015, where I had a thorough examination of my eyes and my vision - I had both building defects and I was farsighted. My vision was very poor without glasses, and lenses were - after many futile attempts - not an option. Since I am an elite swimmer, my poor eyesight was really a disadvantage - both for training and for competitions.

I was able to take a break from my training around Christmas 2015 - and therefore Sven Asp performed a laser surgery on December 23rd. I thought it would be a very "colorless" Christmas - but already the next day I saw quite clearly - and after 4 weeks I was in the water again and started training.

I can see everything now! Sharp and clear! I have not had any complications at all in connection with the operation and am so happy about my new vision, which far exceeds my expectations. Thanks!"

"I did very thorough research before my eye laser treatment, and here I found out that SMILE is a minimal intervention, and the way one should laser treat vision defects today. At the same time, I became aware that eye surgeon Sven Asp holds the European record for the number of SMILE treatments performed, and that The Eye Center could thus present convincing statistics. All important factors that made me without hesitation choose to cross the bridge over Øresund and be treated in Copenhagen.

Although I was very nervous before the treatment, the procedure was largely comfortable and I felt completely safe along the way. Today I see really well, and the best thing about my new “SMILE” eyes is that I see clearly when I open my eyes in the morning, and that I can stand on in-liners without having to think about glasses and lenses."

Read articles about Øjenlægernes Center's SMILE technique

Terry, 58, had for many years considered having laser surgery on his large visual defect of approx. -9 D, but had given up the LASIK method due to the LASIK “patch”. He read a couple of our articles on the SMILE technique and at the same time found out that The Eye Centre has some of the world's leading SMILE researchers affiliated who possess the absolute greatest SMILE experience.
He then flew to Denmark to get SMILE-treatment.

After email correspondence, he flew from Colorado to Denmark solely to get a SMILE-treatment with us, and part of the process could be experienced in the evening news on DR1. After returning to Colorado, he manages everyday life without glasses, and he wrote the following letter to us.

"Dear Dr. Asp

This letter is a sincere expression of thankfulness for the performance of your work. I am grateful that my eyesight has been restored without the need of visual aids such as glasses or contacts. Thank you for the personal care and attention that you gave to me. I was able to be comfortable and relaxed before, during and after the surgical procedure.

Your staff is well trained, knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly. You and they exhibited common courtesy and professionalism. I was certainly a benefactor of your combined skills, abilities and capacities.

May you have continued and prosperous success in your field of expertise.

Thank you very much."

Prefered the SMILE technique over the LASIK “patch”

Eye surgeon Martin, 37 years old and from Aarhus, had for several years considered having his vision defect laser-treated due to increasing discomfort with lens use, but had hesitated as he was not excited about having a LASIK "patch" made. When he had seen the results for a long time (and very close) after the SMILE-treatments at the Department of Ophthalmology at Aarhus University Hospital, he had no doubt that it was the SMILE technique that should be used and that it was the eye surgeon Sven Asp who should carry out the treatment.

“As a professional eye surgeon, I am completely dependent on good eyesight, and that was also why I researched ALL options before deciding who should treat me and with which technique. The SMILE-treatment was largely without discomfort, and was extremely professional. At the last check I saw 120% uncorrected with each eye and my vision is really good. Throughout the period, I have been able to perform my cataract surgeries without any problems, and I can, based on my own experience without hesitation, warmly recommend The Eye Centre. They delivered a very nice SMILE-result by virtue of their great professionalism, friendliness and friendly appearance. They know something that only a few can offer at the highest level, and at the same time it is just reassuring to be treated by Denmark's most active, full-time professional laser surgeon and SMILE European Champion”

The nervousness was put to shame

"I have wanted to get rid of my contact lenses for many years, as daily use of contact lenses gave me certain inconveniences, such as dry and irritated eyes, but I have been too nervous to have a laser operation.
However, I eventually decided that I would contact an eye surgeon I could share my concerns regarding surgery with.

I therefore researched the market and chose to contact The Eye Centre as they had the best reviews.
They were incredibly good at listening to me and explaining to me what an operation would entail. I can only say that my concerns were put to shame.

The staff was so competent and professional. I felt safe and informed throughout the process.

The following days my eyes were a little dry and my eye-vision was a bit blurred, nothing of major importance and I was able to resume my normal everyday life already the day after the operation. A week later my eye-vision was absolutely perfect.

This operation has meant that I get up in the morning and have a perfect eye-vision, which is completely unreal to me and has surpassed my wildest imagination.
The only thing I regret now is that I did not contact them many years ago. It could have saved me an incredible amount of money and inconvenience."
