For these examinations to be successful, it is essential not to wear contact lenses for a period of one week prior to consultation, and not to wear makeup for the two days before.

These examinations enable us to propose the best type of surgery for each particular case (or sometimes no surgical solution if the results are not satisfactory).

The choice of the surgical technique depends on a number of different factors defined through examinations carried out during a check-up using the latest means of investigation.

A consultation and a precise preoperative assessment are performed with a complete, meticulous ophthalmologic examination using the latest methods of investigation to assess the condition of the cornea:

  • thickness (non-contact pachymetry)

  • shape (Orbscan 2 topography)

  • quality (specular microscopy)

  • any eyesight aberrations it may cause (Zywave aberrometer)

  • measurement of the pupil diameter

  • photograph of the iris allowing the eye recognition by the laser

  • OCT (optical coherence tomography) of prior segment and retina if necessary

For intraocular surgery:

  • Measurement of the eye’s length and curve to ascertain the implant power needed to correct vision (IOL master biometry).


Following these examinations, your ophthalmologist will be able to provide you with useful details that will help you in making your decision.

No matter what technology is used, you will receive personalised surgery based on highly precise preoperative measurements
