At Oftum we offer all three generations of laser eye surgery. Each has its advantages and our focus is to always employ the most suitable procedure for every patient. This process starts when you fill out our initial consultation form.
Once you’re with us, you’ll undergo a comprehensive eye examination. During this exam, we will double check if you’re suitable for surgery and also capture the data needed to calculate how the laser will modify the curvature of your cornea. Each “ablation profile”is unique and tailored not only to your prescription but also to your highly detailed corneal scan. This level of correction is simply not possible with previous generations of laser surgery, nor is it possible with glasses or contact lenses!
Since 2009, we’ve been conducting exclusively ALL LASER procedures. This bladelessapproach hugely reduces the risk of complications, and speeds up the healing of your cornea. We also use Wavefront technologyon ALL our procedures to optimise the treatment plan for your particular cornea and refractive error.
There are 3 generations of refractive laser surgery:
Surface ablations PRK, LASEK, Epi-LASIK
To correct your vision tissue is removed by the excimer laserfrom the surface of your cornea. The epithelium – the superficial sensitive layer of cornea - has to be removed and this causes some discomfort after surgery. The healing process is longer - complete visual recovery is within a few weeks and full healing of the cornea takes up to six months. Please note we at OFTUM conduct our PRK with the highly advanced all laser no-touch 6D method.
LASIK Surgeries with Flap - FemtoLASIK, iLASIK, Z-LASIK, “whatever” LASIK
The Femtosecond Laser creates an 8-10mm wide flap in the top 0.1mm of your cornea and the Excimer Laser then operates beneath this to correct your vision. The flap is then replaced. This procedure preserves the sensitive surface layer of your cornea, and there is no pain after surgery. Visual recovery is extremely fast, and complete healing only takes a couple of weeks. Evidence of the flap will remain on the cornea forever, but this has no impact on your vision and is common to all LASIK procedures. Please note that many clinics still use the microkeratome knifeto create the flap, whereas here at OFTUM we have been ALL-LASER and bladelesssince 2009.
The latest and most advanced 3rd generation of laser eye surgery is minimally invasive, flapless and painless. This technology from the German high tech company Carl Zeiss combines all the positives of the previous generations and eliminates all of the negatives. The entire procedure is carried out with no disturbance to the sensitive surface layers of your eye by creating a tiny corrective lens within your cornea. Our surgeon then removes this tiny lens - the lenticule - through a small laser-made 2mm incision. It truly is a minimally invasive keyhole surgery for the eye and it is our flagship procedure. It aligns exactly with our philosophy of maximum patient safety and comfort whilst achieving perfect outcomes.

I would like to thank everyone at Oftum in Prague. On the 15th December I had my vision corrected from minus 8 diopters, through the RelEx SMILE surgery. All staff were friendly, attentive, caring and explained everything to me from my consultation, through to leaving after the post-operative check-up (everything had gone well of course). The premises is clean, cosy and certainly well-catered; some lovely coffee and biscuits for sure! I am so pleased with the results and for everything Oftum have done for my vision. Merry Christmas everyone and have a wonderful 2018! Best wishes, Katy and Mike, United Kingdom
I'd like to thank the team of the Oftum clinic in Prague and personally Dr. Tomas Juhas for his professional work. I had a special case (too thick cornea), so I got also a second correction. Every time I received great service and good relation, also dr.Tomas made a second correction by the method that I asked for. Thanks also for very tasty green tea with ginger and homemade cheesecake. I highly recommend Oftum clinic for vision correction.
My son (14) has just had Femto LASIK on both eyes, every part of his journey has been amazing! From our contact in the U.K. Warrick - he's wonderful, so helpfull and always available with help and support to the ladies at the clinic here in Prague and of course Dr Tomas Juhas who performed my sons surgery. First class service from start to finish, no problems with language barrier as all staff spoke perfect English, Tomas was very professional and kept my son very calm, explaining everything in great detail! My son had very poor sight and waking up today not needing his glasses was very emotional and exciting! I'd recommend this clinic to all, it's changed my sons life and we got a mini break in a beautiful city! Thank you so much Oftum!
My husband and I decided for Christmas present do eye lazer surgery. My husband found this clinic through facebook and we decided to do it here. We had an amazing experience, the staff is incredible, heblpful and super attentive. Our doctor answer all our questions and made us feel very confortable with the procedure. We went the day of the surgery got examined and then came back the same day for the actual procedure. It was all very fast and comfortable. We got out and went to our hotel and rest for the whole day. Next day we took it easy came back for a check up and our vision has been perfect since the surgery! The staff answers all questions right away when needed. We are recommending to all our friends and family!!
I had a RELEX surgery of both eyes in the Oftum Clinic about 2.5 weeks ago. It was a great experience thanks to Bjoern and the Oftum Crew!
The physician and staff are very friendly and aware of the process. It took less than 5 minutes under the German Zeiss Laser. Duration of the actual treatment is just 30 seconds each eye and doesn't hurt.
I was able to see right after it and found the relax chair on my own. 15 minutes later I left the clinic with an almost perfect sight. After another 3 hours rest in the Panorama Hotel which is right next to the clinic I was able to explore Prague with my girlfriend in the afternoon. Since that day my eyesight is perfect and I'm still impressed how easy and good value it was. No dry eyes, just a little sensible to bright light for about a week after.
Very good care. I would do it there immediately.
It was the best decision of my life. The organization, service and eye-surgery @ OFTUM is brillant. I had absolutelly no problems or pain and after a couiple hours after the surgery, I was able to see clearly withou my classes. For everyone who would like to get rid of his glasses it is the best clinic. Many thanks again to Dr. Tomas Juhas and the whole team in Prag !!!
