A minimal intervention on the cornea

Copenhagen Eye Centre (Øjenlægernes Center) is the private clinic in Europe that has the most experience with and performs most of the thoroughly tested and groundbreaking SMILE treatment (ReLEx SMILE), which is performed with the most advanced, stationary laser (ZEISS VisuMax 500 kHz). SMILE (SMall Incision Lenticular Extraction) is “state of the art” in laser treatment of myopia and construction defects and has many advantages over older, known methods such as LASIK, FS-LASIK, EpiLASIK, PRK (by someone called “no touch technique”) and LASEK. SMILE is a minimal intervention on the cornea, which optimizes corneal stability after treatment. This is a significant advantage over the older methods LASIK/FS-LASIK, where the longer “lap opening” and subsequent reduced corneal stability have meant that the method must not be used to treat pilots, military personnel and elite athletes. The LASIK “lap opening” is the single most important reason why some professionals have so far been skeptical of laser treatments.
Eye surgeon Martin Severinsen gets a SMILE eye surgery
“I am super happy with my SMILE treatment, and manage my busy everyday life as an eye surgeon without the use of contact lenses and glasses. I am very satisfied, and at the same time I have no doubt that it is significantly healthier for the eyes that I don’t use lenses anymore.”

Most experienced surgeons

The most advanced lens surgery

We have extensive experience with all lens surgical techniques and use only the latest and greatest of these. We use the so-called “minimally invasive technique”, which takes place via a few mm long cut and does not, as in the “old days”, require any kind of sewing. The choice of lens type for the individual patient depends on the need for correction and is revealed during our thorough pre-examination and during the conversation with the lens surgeon.

The clinic have one of the most experienced Danish surgeons. Eye surgeon, Sven Asp who is the Centers’ leading laser surgeon and has, among other things. performed more than 12,000 treatments, where more than 10,000 of them are SMILE treatments (Europe record) and performs a further more than 30 treatments per week. Lens surgery is led by Professor, Thomas K. Olsen, who has performed more than 15,000 lens surgeries and in professional circles, is recognized as one of Europe’s most competent refractive lens surgeons, who for more than twenty years has been responsible for the most advanced lens surgery at Aarhus University Hospital.
