Presbyopia laser surgery can be performed in convention with the most important insurance companies, supplementary funds and health funds.
Some insurance companies consider a direct payment for health services, with no obligations for its patients; some others consider an indirect assistance.
In this case, the patient gets a refund after providing the invoices for the services.
We have conventions available with the following insurance companies:
Presbyopia laser surgery cannot be performed via National Heath Service (SSN) or ASL (Local Health Service). Astigmatism laser surgery had been previously performed via ASL, but today, because of new policies for spending reduction, this is no longer possible. Some public hospital still offer this service simply by paying a Ticket.
Anyway, it is best to verify if the laser is up to date, because it is often used a laser coming from the first decade of 2000’s, when this surgery was still performed via SSN.
Antonio Parrino, MilanVotazione: EccellenteI underwent PRK for hypermetropia, astigmatism and presbyopia in January 2014.
About ten years ago I underwent PRK to correct myopia. Over the years my sight has gotten worse, then I met Dr. Badala, who proposed me ... Keep on reading this reviewa customized PRK.
6 months after surgery the result is very good: I got back my eyesight without glasses.
The only advice I can give to those who approach this surgery for the first time is to keep the eye still during laser treatment. During the operation you do not feel any pain. Two/three days after day I felt a little but bearable discomfort.
It is very important to carefully follow the doctor's instructions such as: the use of eye drops and sunglasses, rest, do not touch the eye and avoid injuries...for the first few days it takes a little patience, but in the following weeks the result is appreciated day after day.
