Schwind Laser Technology at Optimax
Since 1992, Optimax has insisted on introducing new laser technology in order to provide the best possible results.
We were the first UK clinic to introduce bladeless IntraLase® technology, and our quest for perfection continues with our investment in the Schwind® Laser System.
This award-winning German company has been developing eye surgery technology for more than 50 years, and works in conjunction with eye surgeons to refine techniques and set new standards in vision correction.
Schwind Amaris laser technology offers a ground-breaking 2 speed procedure, reducing intensity towards the end of the treatment to improve control and precision. It also features an advanced new eye tracking system.
New Procedures - Exclusive to Optimax
The introduction of Schwind technology means not only exceptional results, but allows Optimax to offer exclusive new procedures. See below to discover how Schwind technology at Optimax can help even more people to achieve freedom from glasses and lenses.
TESA (TransEpithelial Surface Ablation)
This is a revolutionary new procedure which can help those considering LASEK treatment, who may be at risk from impact to the eye in active sports or occupations. TESA can help those working in professions with strict eyesight regulations (eg, Police, Fire Brigade) and can be recommended in cases of thin corneas or dry eyes.
PresbyMAX: A new treatment for Presbyopia
While some treatments for presbyopia involve a compromise between near and distance vision, PresbyMAX aims to provide both near and distance vision in both eyes.
PresbyMAX works on a similar principle to multifocal lenses, by reshaping the eye’s surface into precise focal points. This provides good vision at all distances, whether the object is near, far, or in between. The technique can also treat visual defects during the procedure.
After treatment, patients could read a newspaper within a few hours – without the aid of glasses
