Safe and efficient laser eye treatment is available in Stavanger, Norway, just 10 minutes from Stavanger International Airport. There are several direct flights every day from Heathrow, Gatwick, Aberdeen and Manchester.
More than half of the population are in need of glasses or contact lenses to see well. After the age of 50 almost all will come to need at least reading glasses and a large number will need varifocal glasses. However, with today`s cutting edge technology it is possible to treat most optical errors that are presently treated and corrected with glasses or contact lenses with various forms of Femto Second LASIK. Thus: Myopia (near-sightedness) up to -15 D given normal corneal thickness; Hyperopia (far-sightedness) up to +6 D and Astigmatism up to -6 D can all be treated accurately. You can get normal eyesight and no longer need glasses or contact lenses ever again, even for close up reading at all ages.
Dr Petter Montagu-Pettersen, a Norwegian Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, has specialised in the treatment of difficult cases for the last ten years. He has developed a range of protocols through the use of avant-garde technology to treat high refractive errors as well as the more common errors. In the last three years, he has developed a new protocol for treating the age-related need for reading glasses and varifocals that so often happens to us all around the age of 50. In the last decade, it has been common to treat this condition with artificial multifocal lens implants (multifocal IOL). This is an invasive procedure and involves serious risks. With the new treatment we have chosen to call Presbyond Laser Blended Treatment (Carl Zeiss Jena TM) excellent vision at all distances is easily achievable without the risks involved with invasive artificial lens implants. The procedure uses the same methodology and hardware as Femto Second LASIK and sets the optical focal points up in a way that safeguards excellent vision at all distances for the rest of your life.
