BUCHAREST, October 29, 2010
WEST EYE HOSPITAL, the first private ophthalmology hospital in Romania opens in Bucharest on October 29, 2010. Here, in WEST EYE HOSPITAL the first INTRALASE + STAR S4 IR in Romania can be found, a device that uses the most advanced LASER EXCIMER- iLASIK technology, the latest laser procedures technology approved by NASA and FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration).
iLASIK technique is one of the safest and most precise medical procedures used in the world, more than ten million cases recording outstanding results and 98% of cases getting a perfect sight. iLASIK is recommended in solving cases that were operated with excimer laser and not optimally resolved. Studies performed on the US Army soldiers treated with this new technology have demonstrated that an extremely high percentage (approximately 95%) of them reached to 100% or more sight ability after surgery, without the need of glasses. According to Dr. Ioan Stefaniu, Doctor of Medical Sciences, ophthalmologist primary care physician, “iLASIK is a procedure that reshapes refractive imperfections of the eye by corneal ablation with refractive index change, representing the quintessential technological advances of the last decade, being an elective procedural combination, a truly personalized method, unique in its components: Wave Scan Wave Front System, INTRALASE FS Laser, Excimer VISX STAR S4 IR Laser and Advanced Custom Vue process.” The intervention takes place in the cornea (anterior, transparent layer of the eye) using a laser beam very precisely metered and directed.
