Am I suitable?

The term ametropia includes the entire spectrum of eyes and vision problems.

The most common ametropia is: short sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. We are introducing you the various visual defects with the individual corrections methods.

LASIK or PRK/LASEK will be suitable for all 3 forms of ametropia, depending on the structure of the eye and your personal lifestyle.

Near-sightedness (Myopia)

With near-sightedness you'll experience blurred vision in the distance. The diopter is in the minus range. Normally CARE Vision performs an eye laser surgery for short sight up to -8

Various eye laser techniques can be used with near-sightedness. Which treatment is suitable for you will be determined during the consultation together with our experts. You´ll have the immediate opportunity to have all your questions answered. Furthermore you´ll receive information about visual defects and their corrections.

How to recognize near-sightedness?

Do you have trouble seeing far away without an optical aid? Probably you are nearsighted. As a nearsighted patient you could qualify for both laser correction (LASIK and PRK/LASEK).

The eye laser check will inform you about the best possible method and the expected costs.

Far-sightedness (Hyperopia)

With far-sightedness, you´ll experience blurred vision in both short and long distance. The diopter is in the plus range. Normally CARE Vision performs an eye laser surgery for long sight up to plus 4 diopter.

How to recognize far-sightedness?

Do you experience blurred vision as soon as you see objects at a close range or reading text up close? Probably you are longsighted. In this case it’s about an axial interruption error of the eye. The eyeball is in comparison to its optical refractive power too short or the refractive power is too low.

With far-sightedness, you could qualify for the LASIK method, but could possibly also qualify for the PRK/LASEK method. Depending on: the structure of the eye, and your personal lifestyle.


Contrary to a near – or far-sightedness, astigmatism does not develop by a defective ration of eye length and refractive power of the lens system. But rather that the cornea surface is deformed. It is more elliptical and not hemispherical as is the case with the normal sighted eye. Incident light rays are not bundled into points onto the retina. Instead they occur as a wrapped line or also as bars. And this creates a disorted picture. Astigmatism it’s usually a combination with Myopia or Hyperopia.

CARE Vision normally performs an eye laser surgery by astigmatism up to:  - 6 diopter.

How to recognize Astigmatism?

Patients with astigmatism, often suffer from blurry vision. Astigmatism is often in combination with Myopia or Hyperopia. An eye laser surgery can be the solution. (Treatment method: depending on the structure of the eye). Our experts will give you detailed explanations on your options.
