I would like to use this opportunity to thank Evgeny Gurmizov, a wonderful doctor from Saint Petersburg. Not only is he a top level professional, he is also a sensitive human being with excellent bedside manners. You can trust him with things you treasure the most, with the health of your loved ones. Dr Gurmizov operated my wife for the purpose of cataract extraction, and now her eyesight is as good as it was when she was young. We are so happy!

Many thanks to Dr Kirill Pershin for excellent treatment! I chose him to consult because I heard a lot of good things about professional skills of Russian eye surgeons, especially Dr Pershin, who is one of the world’s most frequently operating surgeons! My cataract extraction was a great success; I regained 100% of my eyesight and experienced no complications during the recovery period! When I traveled to Moscow, I had time not only for treatment but also for enjoying the sights of this beautiful city. I even visited the Bolshoi Theater, because the surgery didn’t prevent me from enjoying my cultural experience!

I chose Dr Vladimir Kashnikov and the Novosibirsk Eye Center for my surgery. Dr Kashnikov is a great professional with almost forty years of hands-on experience. He is a marvelous surgeon and a true master of his craft. I think, if I chose to be operated by a surgeon of a comparable level at home, I would have had to pay much more! Luckily, I have relatives in Novosibirsk and I wanted to visit them for quite a long time, so I had a chance to meet my relatives and to be operated by a wonderful surgeon. I am extremely happy and wish to thank Dr Vladimir Kashnikov!
Why pass computerized diagnostics? Can it discover anything that a doctor from a polyclinic can’t find?
Many eye diseases especially at early stages may develop with no symptoms at all. While the early treatment is most effective in most cases. The modern diagnostics equipment allows to carry out non-contact testing, and the results do not depend on how precisely the patient followed doctor’s instructions. This testing is objective and comprehensive providing complete and true information about size, functioning and structure of the eye bulb for the doctor. The comprehensive computer assisted diagnostics at EXCIMER Clinic includes the following tests: vision acuity evaluation; refraction and intraocular pressure measurements; field of vision examination; ultrasonic testing of eye inner structures (including cases when media is not transparent); corneal shape and refraction power evaluation; retina and optic nerve condition check, and many other parameters. The diagnostic equipment available at EXCIMER Clinic allows doctors to detect refractive abnormalities (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism), eye refractive media disorders (corneal and crystalline lens opacification) , as well as receptor problems occurring in cases of glaucoma, diabetes and retinal dystrophy. The diagnostic testing results in comprehensive information on the visual system condition, allowing doctors to detect early development stages of most eye disorders and take the most effective measures for treatment.
They say that after Laser corrections eyes are more sensible to injuries, strains, infections. Is this true?
Human eye is obviously vulnerable and sensitive, hence the saying “to cherish as an apple of the eye”! But most prejudice about limitations after corrections dates back to the times when radial keratotomy was the procedure that preceded laser correction. And the radial keratotomy was demanding long rehabilitation period: patients had to stay in hospital and physical strain and exercise were out of the question.
Laser correction affects only cornea, and like with most procedures only its mid-layers, preserving integrity of the surface. Moreover only few micrometers thick cornea layers are evaporated by laser, basically preserving the original thickness intact. All other eye parts are not affected. Restrictions after the corrections are few and are imposed for only very limited period of time, patients come back to normal life very soon. By the way laser correction is the only way to restore vision for those who experience maximum loads often: test pilots, rescuers, mountain climbers, stuntmen, boxers, wrestlers, etc. Many celebrity sportsmen had the surgery performed for them.
I am short-sighted, I heard that one cannot give birth unassisted when this disorder is present. Is it not harmful for pregnant to go for eye testing with the use of computer-assisted devices?
Comprehensive diagnostic testing is pretty safe for a pregnant as well for a future baby. Moreover the testing is recommended for those pregnant women who have never had any eye problems whatsoever. It is recommended to go for an eye check twice during pregnancy: between weeks 10 to 15 and 34 to 36. Endocrine profile of pregnant women changes radically causing change of the visual system condition. The greatest hazard for eye-sight during pregnancy and giving birth is not near-sightedness itself, but the retinal condition deterioration (degenerative or dystrophy changes). It often becomes a reason for natural birth contraindication and the necessity to go for a Caesarean. Therefore it is important that the diagnostics cover both the eye optics and the retinal condition.
