What kind of operations do we perform?
Dr Kai Noor from Silmalaser was the first surgeon to perform laser eye surgery in Estonia in 1999. Since then, Silmalaser has treated thousands of eyes. Over the years, we have continuously improved the technology used during operations and today we offer the three most common types of laser surgery in the world.
LASIK is the most widely practiced vision correcting operation all over the world with more than 50 million successful procedures performed by today. In Silmalaser eye clinic LASIK correction ensuring stable operation results has been used for 10 years. We usually recommend our patients to perform laser procedure on both eyes at the same time (i.e. on the same day) in order to achieve the desired result quickly and conveniently, and without having to interrupt everyday activities and professional tasksEven more information
This procedure is also known as Bladeless LASIK. This is a refractive surgery procedure that has been introduced since 2000, during which the corneal flap is formed with a laser, or without a blade. Femtosecond LASIK, which is widespread today, is globally replacing other methods (PRK, LASIK, epi-LASIK) above all because of its higher accuracy and speed in creating the corneal flap. This results in less trauma to the eye, a more rapid recovery and more accurate vision correction.Even more information
Femto Lasik Balance is a technological improvement of the widely known Femto Lasik (or Femto Lasik Lite) procedure, which, during corneal smoothing, allows the laser to follow the distribution of the individual corneal shape and thickness in different regions of the cornea. According to the properties of the patient’s cornea, the thickness of the corneal flap is reduced. The corneal flap is formed during the first phase of the operation with the help of a laser without a knife, and then the surface under the flap is smoothed, taking into account topological characteristics. Exact corneal mapping occurs immediately before the operation, it includes the creation of a topological map and also the real light reaching the fundus of the eye is measured with the aberrometer. On the basis of investigations, the surgeon draws up an individual ablation profile. As a result, the surgeons can reduce irregular astigmatism and correct the post-operative vision more exactly.Even more information
