Last month I underwent surgery to correct myopia (-5.50), and a slight astigmatism, by PRK laser technology.

The operation lasted about 20 minutes for both eyes and it was totally painless.

I immediately realized t... Continua a leggere la testimonianzahat I have recovered my eyesight, although, during the first days after surgery, it appeared a little blurry.

As for the post-operative recovery, I can say that, apart from the first days when I felt some slight discomfort, I had no problems and I almost immediately resumed my daily activities.

One of the things that amazed me most was to ensure, through following follow-ups (the day after surgery), the full and immediate recovery of eyesight.

I suggest this treatment to anyone with my same problem, considering the results I obtained and the almost absence of post-operative symptoms.

I had big problems due to cataract and high myopia (-20) with astigmatism (-2.0) in both eyes. So, a year ago, I underwent the crystalline lens replacement surgery with intraocular lens implantation.

I often did not r... Continua a leggere la testimonianzaecognize, at short distance, the faces of people I met and even contact lenses could not improve my vision (I wore them all day but they gave me a considerable discomfort to the eyes).

Now I see very well without glasses. I need them only to read closely, bust just for small letters. I see 10/10 from distance and I easily drive at night.

Sure, before surgery, I had so much anxiety, but with a slight sedation I was able to collaborate, by staring at the light the Doctor suggested me to look during surgery. I was assisted well in all phases of the operation. After about ten minutes I got back to my feet and I immediately see well from the operated eye without glasses.

I underwent surgery in the right eye at first and, two days later, in the left eye. Before the complete recover, I observed a short period of rest, I carefully followed the treatment with eye drops and I wore a protective shell at night.

For me a new life has started: I do not have to wear those heavy glasses or annoying contact lenses, which need a careful maintenance. Sure it is not easy to stay awake and collaborate during surgery, but the sureness of being operated by experienced hands helps very much.

I had 5 diopters of astigmatism in one eye and 3 diopters in the other eye when I decided to get FemtoLASIK (Over a year ago).

During the operation, the difficult part was to stare at a white light. Surgery was succes... Continua a leggere la testimonianzasful and my vision has significantly improved the day after. Finally freedom from glasses!

I had a sensation of sand in the eye the day of surgery but from the next day no more discomfort: I was impressed!

I recommend this surgery to those who want to get rid of glasses like me.

I underwent Cataract surgery with Multifocal IOL around two months ago. I was hoping to regain the clear vision that I had lost years ago. In addition to cataract I had astigmatism, hypermetropia and presbyopia.

I was... Continua a leggere la testimonianza welcomed with very warm and professional manners (this is very important considering the little fear everyone has before surgery),  Dr. Badala explained in details what was going to happen during the operation . During surgery, you have to look where the doctor tells and keep still. It is a little effort but it is more than worth it!

After surgery the happiness of seeing everything well, far and near without glasses!

I underwent surgery in my second eye the following day and I recommend  doing so, seeing well with both eyes is excellent !  …and Dr. Badalà is a very professional and human doctor!

It was a happy experience of my life, even if, through some difficulties! Excellent assistance during surgery and only minimal discomfort.

Getting rid of glasses worn for a lifetime is freedom…. is a new life!

It... Continua a leggere la testimonianza is very important, for a radiologist like me, after a short adaptation I see much better pictures at my computer workstation. I move a lot better in the workspaces, finally seeing well. Even after a "mountain" of work, when I get home my eyes are no more red and tired as they used to be before the operation.

Seeing well the stars and the moon is amazing! :-)

Soluzione: PRK
I 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 ... Continua a leggere la testimonianzaa 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.

I underwent surgery for high myopia and astigmatism in both eyes on September, 19 and 20,  2013 and my quality of life has immediately improved.

Surgery began with a simple local anesthesia (eye drops). During surger... Continua a leggere la testimonianzay, I didn’t feel any discomfort or pain and the procedure took about ten minutes. After surgery, I immediately started to see better and I went out from the operating room without any bandage.

The only inconvenience I mentioned, during the first days after surgery, was a slight and bearable burning and light sensitivity which disappeared in the following days.

After surgery I immediately went back to my everyday life, finally without the need for contact lenses or glasses.

I recommend this surgery with Dr. Federico Badalà and his professional, kind and passionate staff.

At the one month post laser visit I could see 20\20, what a joy!

Laser treatment was perfectly successful, fast and... Continua a leggere la testimonianza painless. It was carried out in a surgical center with high standard equipment.

Dr. Badalà and his team had been very warm and welcoming, before and after the surgery. As fast as two days after surgery I went back to my everyday life with the only inconvenience of placing many eye drops many times a day for a few weeks.

Surgery was over two years ago and since then I’m enjoying great vision and freedom from glasses.
Thanks to Doctor Badalà for his competence and professionalism.

From fear to joy! I was diagnosed with cataract, but my greatest wish was to correct also my high myopia and fear had always stuck me.

After a careful research I set up a visit with Dr. Badala and I immediately unders... Continua a leggere la testimonianzatood that I was on the right way. With just one surgery, the doctor freed me from cataracts, myopia (more than 20 diopters) and astigmatism(about 3 diopters).

Surgery took place in the operating room, I had the shirts, the electrodes for monitoring and, given that I chose local anesthesia to do not see or hear anything, they give me a shot near the eye.

Only six hours after surgery, removing the bandage, I had already noticed an improvement in eyesight. Just to be safer, I slept with a protective shell. The next day I did the check-up and, seeing that it was successful, I set up the other eye surgery 10 days later.

Just one month from both surgeries I had the great joy of being able to see 10/10 for the first time in my life. My life has completely changed and I am very satisfied with the result.
