Why Laser vision correction?

Eye conditions such as nearsightedness (Myopia) and astigmatism, so called refractive errors, are very common. For many people, not having to wear glasses or contact lenses makes many activities and even daily living much easier

How does CLEAR work?

CLEAR is a minimally invasive, flapless and gentle procedure that redefines vision correction. The procedure is performed by a single laser: the Ziemer FEMTO Z8.

    The procedure

  • The femtosecond laser cuts a small disc-shaped piece of tissue (Lenticule) within the cornea. The surgeon then extracts the Lenticule through a small incision


  • The upper layers of the cornea remain unaffected during the CLEAR procedure, therefore dry eye might be experienced less often


    Lenticule creation

  • A small disc-shaped piece of corneal tissue (Lenticule) and a small incision are created within the cornea.
  • Lenticule extraction

  • The Lenticule is removed through the incision with minimal stress to the cornea.
  • Corrected vision

  • The removal of the Lenticule changes the shape of the cornea, correcting the refractive.

Frequently asked questions

CLEAR is designed to correct nearsightedness with or without astigmatism. Each person has a unique eye anatomy and only a careful evaluation by your eye care specialist can determine if you are a good candidate for CLEAR.

The procedure takes about 15 minutes, the laser correction itself only 35 to 40 seconds

Every healing process is individual. In most cases, visual acuity is very good one or two days after the operation, and stabilizes within one week. Normally, you will be able to drive, work and participate in sports within a few days

Corneal Lenticule extraction (CLEAR) is considered as the next generation of lenticule applications. The correction is done by a single laser: the Ziemer FEMTO Z8 laser. Made in Switzerland.

What are the CLEAR Benefits?

  • Minimally invasive CLEAR is a minimally invasive and gentle procedure which uses low laser energy to correct vision. This allows potentially for more corneal stability after surgery.
  • More patient comfort Unlike other laser eye surgeries, CLEAR is a single laser procedure. Itʼs fast and provides more comfort and convenience to you during your surgery
  • Flapless procedure CLEAR is a flapless, gentle procedure. The upper layers of the cornea are minimally disturbed. Nerves are less affected, which can reduce the incidence of dry eyes.
  • Next generation lenticule application Corneal Lenticule extraction (CLEAR) is considered as the next generation of lenticule applications. The correction is done by a single laser: the Ziemer
