What is Myopia?

Refractive error

The human eye receives optical stimuli and transmits them to the brain. Like a camera, it has an optical system and a photosensitive layer. The optical system of the eye consists of the cornea and the eye lens, with the cornea responsible for two thirds and the lens for one third of the refractive power.
If the eye is “too long,” it is called myopia, and if it is “too short,” that error is called hyperopia. In European countries, 15-20% of the population is short-sighted and about 5% are far-sighted.

Myopia

If the light rays striking the eye mistakenly focus in front of the retina, this eye is called short-sighted. Usually this is due to an eye which is physically “too long”. Objects in the distance are perceived only vaguely because the image that creates the optics is not on, but in front of the retina. Nearby objects are displayed on the retina and thus sharply.

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
