LASIK & Refractive Surgery

What are the refractive error?

Refractive error is a problem with focusing light accurately onto the retina due to the shape of the eye. The most common types of refractive error are nearsightedness, far-sightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Nearsighted individuals typically have problems seeing well at a distance and are forced to wear glasses or contact lenses. The nearsighted eye is usually longer than a normal eye. When light passes through the eye it is focused in front of the retina.

Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Farsighted individuals typically develop problems reading up close before the age of 40. The farsighted eye is usually slightly shorter than a normal eye. The light of distant objects focuses behind the retina unless the natural lens can compensate.


Asymmetric steepening of the cornea or natural lens causes light to be focused unevenly. To individuals with uncorrected astigmatism, images may look blurry or shadowed.


Presbyopia is a condition that typically becomes noticeable for most people around age 45. With age, the lens loses its ability to focus adequately. Affected individuals usually find that holding reading material further away makes the image clearer. Ultimately, aids such as reading glasses are typically needed.

Vision Correction Options

All-laser LASIK

All-laser LASIK differs from traditional LASIK in that no blades are used. Instead, a special laser called a femtosecond laser is used to create the flap. You’re less likely to have complications with all-laser LASIK, and your vision is likely to recover within one day.

Surface treatment (PRK)

In PRK, the thin outer layer of the cornea (epithelium) is removed and discarded prior to reshaping the underlying corneal tissue with an excimer laser. The epithelium repairs itself (grows back) within a few days.

PresbyLASIK (PresbyMAX)

PresbyMAX is a minimally invasive method for the treatment of presbyopia using the cutting-edge technology of the SCHWIND AMARIS eye laser systems. The entire treatment takes only a few minutes, the ablation itself only a few seconds. Rapid laser pulses are used to model the cornea highly precise and create a perfectly smooth surface.

Multifocal / Trifocal intraocular Lenses

This implant gives patients a better chance to enjoy clear vision at all distances with maintained contrast sensitivity and lower visual disturbance. This lens enables patients to switch naturally between all distances. This lens is used in cases of presbyopia, cataract, myopia and hyperopia

Phakic lenses (STAAR VISIAN ICL)

Phakic implantable contact lenses (ICLs), are implantable contact lenses that are surgically inserted into the eye where they provide excellent quality of vision with predictable and stable results. ICL is able to correct high degrees of nearsightedness up to -20 and may be performed in patients who are not candidates for LASIK.

Our Technologies


This is an innovative eye laser surgery method that works without touching the eye. It combines the benefits of touch-free TransPRK surface treatment with innovative SmartPulse technology. The result is clear vision. The healing process is faster and vision improves notably faster than with conventional surface treatments.


The advanced type of LASIK eye surgery in the country is known as the Z Lasik treatment. Operated by FEMTO LDV (Ziemer of Switzerland), enables to lessen inflammation, limit the damage and significant improvement in vision right after surgery. First ever technology in the Kingdom Of Bahrain.

TransPRK (No-Touch“ Surface Treatment)

With the SCHWIND AMARIS laser systems it is possible to carry out no-touch, all-laser surface ablations. The epithelium, which is the regenerative surface of the eye, is ablated by the laser system in a single-step treatment that avoids the eye coming into contact with any instrument..
