1. General Treatment Information
a) Expected results, benefits
What are the advantages of Laser Vision Correction?
After laser eye surgery most Patients do not longer need corrective eyewear. The procedure corrects vision almost immediately and is associated with very little pain. Usually, no stitches are required, and recovery is quick.
b) About the procedure
The procedure is used to correct common vision problems (such as astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness, presbyopia) and to reduce Patient’s dependence on contact lenses/eyeglasses. Laser eye surgery is a form of refractive surgery and uses a beam of ultraviolet light to reshape Patients cornea. Adjusting the curve of cornea allows light to be focused just on the retina at the back. The most popular methods are called LASIK and are chosen by 95% of Patients. The operator uses either a mechanical device called a microkeratome or femtosecond laser to create a very thin corneal flap, about 0.1 mm. Surgeon lifts corneal flap back on a hinge and reshapes with the laser the bed of the cornea. Depending on Patients need it can flatten the cornea to correct short-sightedness, make it steeper for long-sightedness or improves symmetry to help in astigmatism. The surgeon uses a computer to adjust the excimer laser exactly for your particular prescription. When the operator puts the corneal flap back, it stays in this new shape. Each procedure takes about five minutes; it is performed on each eye separately.
c) Treatment Schedule
Before undergoing the laser eye surgery, you need to use a detailed consultation with your Doctor. He will perform a qualification examination and complementary examinations if needed (Likely tests include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, and pupil dilation as well as other eye conditions). The moistness of your eyes needs to be evaluated to reduce dry eyes effect after the surgery. You will also need to undergo analysis to prepare a map of your cornea.
Right after the surgery, you will need to rest; you may feel a temporary discomfort like burning or itching in your eye. During the first hour after surgery, you should expect blurry visions or haziness. Clarity should improve next morning.
First control will be done after 24 hours of the treatment.
d) Potential side effects
What are the disadvantages and risks of Laser Vision Correction?
Although laser eye surgery in the right hands, technology and aftercare is extremely safe, as a Patient you need to be conscious that changes made to the cornea can not be reversed after having the laser eye surgery, only an additional correction can be done. In very rare cases (1:10000) the surgery can permanently affect vision. Same patients can experience discomfort right after surgery (to 48 hours).
e) Full Recovery Time
Your eyes will start healing quickly after surgery; you will experience some blurry visions during the first days or sometimes weeks. Most Patients can come back to daily routines such as working the day after the surgery. In most cases, vision becomes stable and clear at six-month control visit.
2. Patient’s preparation
Before the consultation, you should be out of contact lenses, from 1 week when it comes to all soft contact lenses or extended wear soft lenses, up to 12 weeks with true hard lenses from polymethyl methacrylate. You should provide your general health history to your eye doctor including any medications you are taking to determine if you are a good candidate for laser vision correction. The day before surgery you should stop using cremes, perfumes, makeup, lotions. You should not do any sports up to three days following surgery. To prevent infections you should wait two weeks before using any cosmetics around an eye. You should avoid swimming for up to 2 months and avoid strenuous exercises and contact sports such as martial arts. You can fly after 2-3 days after the procedure, but please prepare artificial tears.
Essential tests include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, and pupil dilation will be performed in the clinic.
4. Qualification for the procedure
There are many factors having the impact on the outcome of the surgery that is why not everybody could undergo laser eye treatment. Doctor will probably ask you about:
Medical conditions – it is important to know if have an autoimmune disease, a chronic illness or other major illness that may slow or detain healing?
Eye conditions – you need to tell the doctor if you had any problems with your eyes if you need to wear glasses.
Medications – do you take steroids medicaments or other drugs that might prevent healing?
High or Low refractive error – do you use eyewear/lenses every day or just from time to time? Is your prescription extremely high?
Stable refraction – is your prescription stable or have changed during last year?
Corneal thickness – do you have thin corneas?
Pupil size – are your pupils really large in dark conditions?
Tear production – do you have a dry eye problem?
Age – How old are you? You can only undergo this procedure if you are over 21.
Pregnancy – Are you pregnant?

I was originally quite apprehensive about travelling to Katowice, Poland for varicose vein surgery but having Maja from EuroTreatMed help me along the way made my experience run smoothly. When I originally contacted Euro Treat Med 2 months prior to my surgery I received plenty of information regarding my procedure and was happy to book with the surgeon. I booked to stay in a hotel called Park Diament only across the road from the hospital where my procedure would take place (patients were given a discount on their stay as well). I flew out two days prior to my procedure and was picked up from the airport by Maja, even though I was 5 hours late due to missing my connecting flight. The following day I had an examination with the surgeon where we discussed appropriate methods for the procedure and was then scheduled in to have treatment in the morning. The day of the procedure went smoothly as Maja was there to check me in and stayed until all of my pre op checks had been completed. After the procedure I was then allowed to leave the hospital at around 3pm the same day and was told to rest in my hotel. I would definitely not hesitate to go abroad for surgery again as the facilities were just as good if not better than the UK and I could not recommend Euro Treat Med and Maja enough.
I had the prostate artery embolization procedure carried out on Wednesday 7th August at the Euromedic facility in Katowice. I arrived on Sunday 4th but it would be just as convenient to arrive on the Monday with the consultation taking place at around 4 pm on the Monday. I was met at the airport by the EuroTreatMed driver and transported to my hotel. The hotel that EuroTreatMed recommend is the Park Hotel Diament which is a 5 minute walk from the Euromedic facility. I would definitely recommend the hotel (excellent WiFi), it’s a very nice hotel excellent breakfast and has most of the facilities you could ask for. It is also just a 20 minute walk into the centre of Katowice and that is for a 74 year old. The Eurotreatmed representative picked me up at the hotel each day and took me to the clinic where I was processed for the consultation, MRI scans etc. Ms Swinder the Eurotreatmed representative could not have been more helpful and spoke excellent English explaining the program each day and ensuring a smooth and trouble free program each day. Following my consultation on the Monday with the doctor who was going to carry out the procedure who incidentally spoke excellent English the real work began on the Tuesday when I had the MRI scans etc. Then it was back to the hotel to wait for the procedure which was carried out on Wednesday. Wednesday morning taken to the clinic by Ms Swinder at 7 am and prepared for the procedure which took place at around 10 am and was completed by 1 pm when I was taken back to my hospital room. The actual procedure during which you remain conscious throughout was absolutely pain free and apart from the 3 hour duration it was less hassle than having your teeth cleaned. Following the operation, you have a bandage wrapped around your groin along with some hard-conical object which bears down on the entry point to make sure that it sealed up. For the next 20 hours you lie in bed keeping your movement to a minimum. This was probably the worst part, no food and no water although you are on a drip to make sure you do not dehydrate. The next morning at around 9 am another doctor comes in along with several other people, the bandage is removed and the entry point inspected and it was decided that everything looked okay and that I could be discharged that morning. I was back in my hotel by midday on the Thursday. You are also given a very basic breakfast which I was grateful for having not eaten for almost 24 hours. On Saturday the Eurotreatmed driver arrived at my hotel and delivered me back to the airport. On Sunday I arrived back home and I was able to get the urologist at my local hospital to remove the urinary catheter which I had been using since the end of February. It has now been a month since my procedure and I am very pleased with the results. My urinary flow rate is excellent far better than it has been for many years. I cannot speak too highly of the Eurotreatmed representative Ms Swinder who was always available and always in contact via WhatsApp and since arriving back home has continued to ask about my progress. Ms Swinder was also the contact before arriving in Katowice and was very helpful regarding the whole procedure from start to finish. My advice is that if you are having problems regarding urinary flow and are considering a procedure the PAE procedure is probably the least invasive and produces excellent results. I would definitely recommend Eurotreatmed I am not only pleased with the results but also the whole procedure from start to finish it could not have been handled any better.
Recently travelled over to Katowice with my partner for him to get a MRI. The service received from Maja and Bartek was amazing going out of there way to make sure everything went smoothly even as far as booking us meals and transfers. Thank you so much for your help
