Krakow Zooptica Ophthalmology Center is a modern medical facility on the map of Krakow specializing in the treatment of cataracts and refractive surgery (laser correction of vision defects).
It was established in 2001 and since then has been helping patients to restore normal vision, to treat eye diseases - glaucoma, cataracts, retinal diseases and improved visual comfort through minor ophthalmic surgeries. Treatment is supported here by very well-developed ophthalmic diagnostics, thanks to which it is possible to precisely determine the problems or illnesses with which patients come.
One of these eye diseases is the existing cataract, which is associated with the aging process of the body (mainly after the age of 60) and secondary (caused by some systemic diseases or as a result of injuries). In both cases, it is treated here by surgery without a lens implant or with a lens implant whose parameters are appropriately matched to the eyes and expectations of a given patient. The latter procedures include the phacoemulsification with an aspherical lens implant, phacoemulsification with an aspherical lens implant with a blue light filter, and a phacoemulsification method with a toric lens implant. In addition, during such operations physicians also use pseudomodular and pseudomodular toric lenses. In addition, in the case of the aphakic eye one can here undergo secondary lens implant surgery and in the secondary cataract, capillary surgery, performed with the YAG laser.
Another treatment in this center is retinal disease and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Such dry AMD is treated here with the Scharioth lens implantation, so that patients will be able to read without the use of glasses after the procedure. Most often, such implantation is performed after cataract surgery, but sometimes also simultaneously with phacoemulsification. His second form - or AMD exudative - can be cured in Zooptice only by means of intravitreal injections of Eylea or Lucentis, which can effectively stop the development of the disease.
For people of all ages who suffer from vision defects, i.e. myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism, laser vision correction treatments are offered at Zooptice. They are made with a modern excimer laser and take into account different methods depending on the effects the patient wants to achieve and his predisposition. Thus, one can undergo the correction of eyesight using the LASIK and EPI LASIK methods and the LASEK method or the PRK method. Such a treatment permanently eliminates individual eye defects and their combinations. Another way to improve vision is here the implantation of phakic lenses, the implantation of which permanently corrects the visual defect, so it is enough to carry it out once in a lifetime.
Complementing the treatments and operations for the treatment of diseases and sight defects are here minor peri-ocular surgery. This is, among others excision of eyelid lesions, i.e. removal of the cervical region of the eye, removal of chalazion or tufts of yellow, and removal of foreign body from the eye. In addition, treatments are also carried out on the tear ducts in the case of problems with them, for example, the procedure of tearing the lacrimal channels or the procedure of closing the tear point with a plug.
The high level of services in the field of diagnostics, procedures and operations in Zooptica is suitably qualified and experienced staff, which consists of ophthalmology specialists holding the titles of doctors of medical sciences, which they obtained after defending doctoral dissertations in the field of vision correction and cataract surgery. Dr n. Med. Krzysztof Ochalik for the work Fri. "Correction of high myopia with anterior phakic lenses", while dr n. Med. Katarzyna Buczak-Gasińska for the dissertation on "Assessment of the effects of cataract surgery with intraocular implantation of an artificial toric lens". Their extensive experience gained in prestigious ophthalmic institutions, i. Ophthalmology Clinic in Katowice, translates here to precision, professionalism and professionalism in ophthalmic surgeries. Their high level of services is also evidenced by their affiliation to medical societies, such as the Polish Society of Ophthalmology and the European Society for Cataract Surgery and Refractive Surgery. The medical team also includes specialists in anaesthesiology and intensive care, thanks to which the operations are safe and comfortable.
Modern equipment of the facility in the devices of the best European and world brands guarantees the patient a proper diagnosis and a successful surgery. Among these medical devices, it is worth mentioning those used during the treatment treatment, namely: the modern Allegretto Wave excimer laser (used in the laser treatment of vision defects), ultrasound device (for cataract phacoemulsification procedures) and the YAG laser (for capsule-treating secondary cataractomy). The diagnosis uses, among others ultrasound device (for ultrasound examination of the eyeball), impaired pachymeter (for measuring the corneal thickness), gonioscope (for examination of the angle of perception, eg glaucoma), OCT apparatus (for the diagnosis of the optic disc) as well as a computer for the examination of visual defects, tonometer (for intraocular pressure) or biometric (for measuring the length of the eyeball).
