"It's nice to just wake up in the morning and be able to see something right away, go to sports without needing contact lenses, and just be more flexible in everyday life."
Katrin R. (ReLEx smile)
How did you come to the decision to have treatment? What bothered you most about glasses and contact lenses?
I had been nearsighted for a long time and was no longer satisfied with glasses and contact lenses. Especially during sports the contact lenses bothered me and because of an additional corneal curvature I also had problems finding the right contact lenses. Therefore, after much deliberation, I decided to undergo laser treatment.
How did you come across EuroEyes and what ultimately convinced you about EuroEyes?
I came across EuroEyes through family and friends. Some had already had laser treatment themselves and were very satisfied.
How did you feel about the surgery, were you nervous?
Before the surgery, I was a little nervous because I knew that theoretically there can be complications, even if they are rare. The team at EuroEyes was very friendly and explained every step to me, which made me feel well taken care of. In the end, the surgery went very quickly, I had no pain, but only a slightly uncomfortable feeling, which was not bad.
Were your expectations fulfilled?
My expectations were definitely met. I could see very well just a few days after the surgery and 2 weeks later I was back at work. Working at the screen was a bit tiring for me at the end of the day, but after about 3 weeks I had no more problems.
What has already changed for you? What are you looking forward to in your glasses-free life?
It’s nice to just wake up in the morning and be able to see something right away, go to sports without needing contact lenses, and just be more flexible in everyday life. Above all, not having to switch between glasses and sunglasses is a great enrichment for me.

ReLEx smile – The particularly gentle procedure for correcting refractive errors – without flap
This gentlest form of eye laser surgery is a further development of Femto-LASIK and enables a particularly safe and gentle correction of defective vision.
The decisive advantage: With ReLEx smile, we can laser your eyes without a “flap” and no longer have to open the cornea extensively – as would be necessary with conventional LASIK.
This procedure is gentle on the eye, the cornea remains stable and flap complications are completely eliminated. This minimally invasive treatment is our first choice for the correction of myopia, astigmatism and dry eyes.
Corrects myopia up to -10 diopters
Corrects astigmatism up to 5 diopters
