Patient's problem: Astigmatism, Myopia

Solution: PRK

Micro Chirurgia Oculare

I recommend it to everybody!! I had slight myopia and astigmatism and I couldn't live with glasses , since I started using them at 27 (I'm 30 now). Reading the patient reviews and Dr. Badalà's CV, I didn't hesitate to call and make an appointment. In the facility in Milan, where the visit and intervention took place, I was welcomed with the utmost professionalism and friendliness.

After the preliminary visit, Dr. Badalà immediately put me at ease, explaining the various types of surgery I could undergo, advising me which was the most suitable for me and my needs.

I carried out the visit on 07/07/2016 and underwent the operation on the first available date, 07/14/2016.

The surgery itself lasted very little, between preparation time and surgery it must have been 5-10 minutes. As soon as the surgery was over I could already read the wall clock in the operating room. After 5 days I returned to remove the protective contact lenses that had been applied to me at the end of the operation, and I resumed my routine as normal. Obviously after the operation there is a few weeks of post-operative care with a few drops of eye drops.

Following the Doctor's instructions I did not have any pain or headaches , neither during the surgery nor in the following days. On 09/16/2016 I returned for the check-up and the result of the eye test was 12/10 , more than satisfied!!

There is an urban legend that says that those who undergo this type of operation must wear bandages over their eyes and operate one eye at a time, which is not true, because I operated on both eyes and left without any bandages but with a pair of sunglasses that the Doctor gave me.
