Using top of the cornea diagnostic equipment to excimer laser and automated microkeratome, shortsight, longsight and astigmatism can be corrected to the highest degree of accuracy.
The department is fully equipped with all the necessary up to date equipment for diagnosis and treatment of corneal transplant surgery all the refractive procedures whether corneal or lenticular are performed namely:
Eximer Laser Procedure (Femto LASIK)
- Photo refractive keratectomy (PRK)
- Photo Therapeutic Keratectomy (PTK)
- Laser in site Keretomileusis (LASIK)
- Phakic IOLs
- Intercorneal ring segments (intacs)
LASIK is now one of the commonest refractive procedures performed to correct all types of errors of refraction namely myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
The procedure is performed in a few minutes under topical anesthesia with almost no pain and the patient can leave the hospital un-patched a few minutes after surgery.
At IEH we gained a huge experience that has been obtained through treatment of over 30,000 eyes as of 1995 with perfect results.
