Behandlung: Klarlinsen-Exktraktion (clear lens extraction, CLE)
I`ve been burdened with glasses and/or contact lenses since I was ten years old. Fifty years later, implantation surgery gave me back my sight. I no longer fumble for glasses to read expiry dates in the supermarket, or worry about losing a contact lens while doing sports- what a sense of freedom!
Eye surgery is a very important decision; needless to say, I was nervous and had some appreshension. The idea of being awake during surgery made me uneasy, but Dr. Bänninger talked me trough the entire procedure (in English). I didn`t feel or see anything, just focused on his voice. Looking back, I can honestly say that it was a breeze to go through. The administrative tasks were handled with friendly professionalism, and the recovery went according to the guidelines they provided.
They say that before you die your life passes before your eyes, well, I`m not waiting for that moment, because I want to see perfectly while I`m alive. I thank Dr. Bänninger and his fine staff for making my journey to restored vision very easy and amenable.
