FAQ Myopia Control

Yes, a detailed ophthalmological examination is necessary. Among other things, the length of the eyeball is measured using state-of-the-art ray-tracing technology.

No, the costs of myopia control are currently not covered by the health insurance in Switzerland.

You can always make an appointment with us either by phone (044 741 81 81) or by e-mail (info@elza-institute.com) or via our contact form. In a first step, we will perform a detailed ophthalmological diagnosis.
At the beginning of the treatment, the controls are more frequent. Once the treatment has been initiated, checks are carried out every three months.

No. If your child receives contact lenses and does not know them yet, they may initially experience an uncomfortable feeling while wearing them, but we use the latest technology so that most patients adapt very quickly.

For many decades, in ophthalmology, we believed that myopia can not be slowed down. But modern ophthalmology has learned a lot in the field of myopia control over the past 10 years. A number of large-scale studies have proven in recent years that this form of myopia control is effective.

Yes. It used to be thought that children should only wear contact lenses when they were teenagers. However, a number of studies have shown that contact lenses are safe for younger children, as long as the hygienic handling of the lenses is practiced. It also depends very much on how you, as a parent, judge your children. Also in terms of contact lens materials and designs, these have improved significantly in recent years.

My left eye had to be operated on because of a cataract. As I had an Artiflex lens implanted a few years ago, it had to... be removed first before a modern lens could be implanted to correct the cataract. Prof. Hafezi treated me in an very competent and friendly manner. I am very happy with the result.read more

At the moment, 3 months have passed since the moment I made laser vision correction in this clinic. and I can say that... I am happy that I chose this particular clinic and Prof. F. Hafezi. The entire staff of the clinic is very friendly, treats patients with sympathy and patience if they are nervous before surgery (my big gratitude to Aida Alili for all support and patience). The doctor Hafezi and other doctors of the clinic are very professional and ready to explain to you as many times as you need. I can only recommend!read more
