Surgical vision correction from 1600€ per eyeIn Astana

Phakic intraocular lenses (PIOLs) are placed in the posterior chamber of the eye without removing the patient’s own lens.

According to WHO statistics, a quarter of the world’s population suffer from various dysfunctions of the visual system. And if a few decades ago most ophthalmic diseases sounded like a sentence to life-long wearing of glasses or contact lenses, and surgery as an alternative method of solving the problem was carried out only in a few clinics in the world due to the unavailability of methods for solving these problems and/or the high risk of various complications. Fortunately, medicine does not stand still. Today, surgical correction can be performed in many specialized specialized clinics.

However, its success is determined by the quality of the material and technical base and the level of training of doctors. And if you have landed on this page, congratulations. After all, you have found a team of experts who are ready to do everything to restore your lost vision. For many years of active work in the market of ophthalmological services in Kazakhstan, the network of specialized ophthalmological clinics ASTANA VISION has earned the trust of tens of thousands of people, having carried out many thousands of successful operations that allowed them to get rid of cataracts, retinal diseases, and other eye diseases once and for all.

About the procedure

Surgical intervention is assigned:

  • To eliminate refractive errors: farsightedness, myopia, astigmatism when it is impossible to perform laser techniques.

The presence of a team of certified specialists and advanced equipment allows us to perform almost all surgical operations, and the most modern material and technical base of the clinic allows us to get rid of almost all refractive errors with high safety and minimal discomfort for the patient.

With a high degree of myopia, astigmatism, a thin or irregular cornea, as well as other cases that do not allow for laser correction, in order to restore the ability to see the world with the desired clarity, the patient may be prescribed phakic intraocular lens implantation (PIOL) – a surgical operation that allows you to get rid of points at:

  • Myopia (up to -23.00 diopters);
  • Astigmatism (up to 6.00 diopters).

Posterior chamber phakic intraocular lenses

PIOL is a flexible lens implanted through a micro-access in the cornea with a length of 2.2 mm. With its implantation, the anatomy of the eye remains the same. In addition, the patient retains his own lens, which still performs its accommodative functions for the correct focusing of the eye at various distances.
In fact, implantation can be compared to correction with soft contact lenses with one difference: SCL is put on the cornea, while PIOL is placed inside the eye in front of the lens. It should be noted that the operation is reversible: the implant can be removed without disturbing the anatomy of the eyeball.

In our clinics, we use the most advanced posterior chamber phakic IOL Visian ICL (STAAR Surg, USA). They are implanted between the iris and the lens, the supporting (haptic) elements are located in the ciliary groove, which ensures reliable fixation of the PIOL.

If necessary, this method can be supplemented with laser correction – this is called “Biooptics”, which provides an extension of the clinical range of application and an increase in the accuracy of the surgical procedure.

This technology is safe and effective for patients of all ages. FIOL is an excellent choice for those who do not want to wear glasses or contact lenses, as well as for those who cannot perform laser vision correction.
