Medicover opens Eye Surgery Clinic

Top quality laser correction of vision defects

Medicover opens Eye Surgery Clinic


Refraction defects affecting visual acuity constitute approx. 42% of eyesight problems, which makes them the most common ophthalmological problem in patients of all ages in our population. There are several ways to correct them. As much as 80% of patients resort to wearing glasses, and less than one in ten people uses contact lenses. Laser correction of vision defects is also gaining popularity as it offers permanent and immediate effects. And with the progress of medicine, this procedure has become painless and safe while significantly improving the quality of vision and thus patients' comfort of life. Responding to our patients' needs, Medicover Hospital and Libermedic Warsaw Ophthalmology Centre established Eye Surgery Clinic. The clinic is supervised professionally by Professor Iwona Grabska-Liberek MD, President of the Polish Society of Ophthalmology, a long-term consultant of the Mazovian Province in the field of ophthalmology, who specializes in ocular microsurgery.

In February 2018, Medicover Eye Surgery Clinic launches in Warsaw's district of Wilanów. It is already the eighth specialist clinic of Warsaw's Medicover Hospital. The combination of experience and cutting edge medical technologies guarantees precision and effectiveness of treatment.

What distinguishes Medicover in the field of vision defects correction is our equipment. As the only facility in Central and Eastern Europe, we have the latest excimer laser: Amaris 1050 RS 7D. This device is not only the fastest, which allows to significantly shorten the time of surgery, even with complex eye defects, but also guarantees the highest standard of precision and safety.

Currently, we talk more and more often about the myopia epidemic, especially among adolescents, but also young adults, i.e. people who work the most. Working at the computer, constantly checking the phone or laptop – everything is at hand, which results in developing a "lazy" eye, which cannot adapt quickly to distance changes – when we look far, we are unable to focus3. The laser correction of the defect enables quick improvement in visual acuity. It is a safe and effective method. Thanks to laser vision correction, patients regain visual acuity without having to use glasses or contact lenses.
Apart from the core treatment of refraction defects, Medicover Hospital will also help patients suffering from more complicated eyesight diseases. One of the procedures offered by the newly opened Clinic is the therapy of keratoconus. Thanks to Medicover Hospital's close cooperation with Professor Iwona Grabska-Liberek, MD, patients will be in the hands of a team of specialists with the longest and widest experience in treating keratoconus in Poland, as well as the longest history of clinical observations. The same applies to the correction of the so-called high eyesight defects by implanting phakic lenses.

Thanks to the cooperation of the clinic with distinguished ophthalmology specialists and access to state-of-the-art global technologies, we guarantee full safety, maximum precision of treatments and short convalescence periods, while offering patients a chance to recover quickly and get their good vision back.

Arkadiusz Krakowiecki, Medical Director at the Medicover Hospital

In the newly opened Ophthalmology Clinic, patients will have access to other eye surgery procedures to correct eyesight defects and improve the quality of vision, such as refractive lens replacement or cataract surgery. Thanks to state-of-the-art solutions and individualized selection of intraocular lens, the surgical removal of cataracts will be an opportunity for patients to enjoy perfect vision throughout their lives, without the need to use any prescription glasses.

The experience of our team of doctors and access to the latest operating equipment, like vision correction lasers, ultramodern cataract surgery devices, phakic lenses, post cataract removal implants, corneal cone therapies, enable us to offer our patients the best care and solutions in solving their vision problems. Today, we expect the ophthalmic surgeries to be safe and to give the patient a completely new quality of life. I get the greatest satisfaction from seeing a patient with bad vision regain full visual acuity after the treatment, from the fact that they often don't need to use glasses or contact lenses any more.

Professor Iwona Grabska-Liberek, MD

Accidents at work. The first 10 minutes are crucial.


By the end of September 2017, more than 56,100 persons were injured as a consequence of accidents at work. According to the data of the Central Statistical Office, the most accident-prone sectors included industrial processing, trade, transport, storage, and construction. Due to their inability to work, employees collectively spent more than 1.8 million days on sick leaves – this is more than 33 days per one injured person. In many situations, the consequences of the accident could have been much less serious if appropriate aid was provided immediately. Human health and lives frequently depend on whether employees (or witnesses of an accident) are able to react properly and provide first aid.
More than half of Poles are treated at private dental offices


The Polish dental market, following the example of the European market, is in the process of consolidation. Small offices are increasingly joining large networks. This is taking place to meet the expectations of patients who value quality services, convenience, trust in doctors, and modern office equipment. In Poland, this market has been dominated by private entities that can afford expensive investments (as public spending on dentistry makes up only 2.5 percent of the entire National Health Fund budget). Over half of Polish patients are treated by private entities.

More and more small and medium companies are investing in medical care for employees


According to the latest Eurostat data, Poland is in the top five countries of the European Union with the lowest unemployment rate. Although on one hand these statistics are a cause for joy, they also pose a big challenge for many employers, who are having a harder time finding good employees these days. In order to be competitive on the market, you have to offer attractive non-financial benefits. At the top of the candidates' list of expectations is private medical care – as many as 14 percent of them declare it important. And although it is already a standard in corporations, it is still a big challenge for small and micro-enterprises, in which only 6 percent of employees are covered by private medical care. Why is it worth investing in it?

Coraz więcej małych i średnich firm inwestuje w opiekę medyczną dla pracowników

Jak pokazują ostatnie dane Eurostat, Polska znajduje się w pierwszej piątce krajów Unii Europejskiej o najniższej stopie bezrobocia. Statystyki te z jednej strony cieszą, z drugiej stanowią duże wyzwanie dla wielu pracodawców, którym dziś coraz trudniej o dobrego pracownika. Aby być konkurencyjnym na rynku, trzeba oferować atrakcyjne benefity pozapłacowe. Na szczycie listy oczekiwań kandydatów o pracę plasuje się prywatna opieka medyczna – ważna dla 14 proc.[1] z nich. I choć jest ona już standardem w korporacjach, wciąż stanowi duże wyzwanie dla małych i mikroprzedsiębiorstw, w których tylko 6 proc. pracowników objętych jest prywatną opieką medyczną[2]. Dlaczego warto w nią zainwestować?
