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 underwent PRK for correction of myopia about a week ago. Surgery was fast and painless.

Immediately after surgery my vision significantly improved, I felt a little burning and some light sensitivity. The first coupl... Continua a leggere la testimonianzae of days the light bothered me and I felt some burning from the fourth day I was able to stay in sunlight with sunglasses and my vision was quite clear.

One week after the operation I went back to all my regular everyday  activities, obviously paying some attention (avoiding too long PC exposure  and make up).

I see very well, although I am still one week post-op. Three-Four days of discomfort and burning are worth the effort of getting rid of glasses.

I certainly recommend PRK. I thank Dr. Badalà and his staff for being very professional and always available!

The attitude that you have when you approach surgery is very important. I was very scared, fearful and my nervous tension was about to stop me on the day of surgery. Despite all of that, all the staff, receptionists, nur... Continua a leggere la testimonianzases, the anesthesiologist, the surgeon (Dr. Badalà)  have done a great job reassuring me and making me feel like a member of a big family.

With great patience and kindness, though my tiring intractability during surgery, the entire team has completed successfully the implantation of phakic intraocular lenses, which was absolutely painless.

I thank all those who have contributed to the great final result. Now I see 20/20 without glasses from both eyes. If you could go back, I would do the surgery again but smiling this time!

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!

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! :-)

High myopia (17 diopters in both eyes) with cataract represented for me a considerable handicap: blepharitis and dry eye do not allow the use of contact lenses and with glasses I could barely see at intermediate distance... Continua a leggere la testimonianza.

All the ophthalmologists I went to suggested to postpone cataract surgery, considering the precarious conditions of the retina.

I trusted Dr. Badalà (I read good things on the Internet about his innovative surgeries) who, after all the necessary tests, reassured me about the feasibility of the operation.

On 22 and 23 January, 2015 in Milan, in a welcoming atmosphere with state of the art equipment, Dr. Badala' performed cataract surgery in both eyes, with implantation of monofocal aspheric IOL, under topical anesthesia.

I am pleased with an excellent result in both eyes, thanks to Dr. Badalà expertise!

I arrived at his clinic  with some tension, but I noticed an excellent organization and the great professionalism of all the staff, from the reception to the medical and nursing staff.

Dr. Badalà welcomed me with great cordiality, he explained the stages of the operation, giving me peace of mind and security.

The surgery lasted about ten minutes and took place under local anesthesia, so I could follow all its phases, without feeling any pain. After a couple of hours I went back to the hotel, seeing well with the operated eye.

After a week I underwent cataract surgery in the other eye, and I could go back to my home town with 10/10 distance vision, totally eliminating the myopia that I had since I was a boy.

I was very surprised to have been able to see clearly immediately after surgery and did not have trouble or need any bandage.

I suggest this surgery because it easily solves cataract and myopia problems and, at the same time, I could appreciate the remarkable competence, professionalism and humanity of the doctor and his staff.

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.

I am very satisfied with the Laser results and my new vision!

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.
