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.

Marcin Łukasiewicz, Director of the Medicover Hospital

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

Experts: Adults should also be vaccinated against pertussis


Epidemiologists stress that in recent years we have been observing the return of infectious diseases, which for years have been considered to be under control or eradicated. One of them is pertussis, and its incidence has also been on the rise in Poland. This is confirmed by the data of the National Institute of Hygiene – in 2016, there were as many as 6,856 cases of the disease, while in 2017 there were slightly fewer – 3,034 [1]. Most vulnerable to the disease are young people between the ages of 10 and 14, adults and the elderly. According to experts, the most effective preventive measure continue to be vaccinations – mandatory for children, but also those recommended for adults who should take a booster dose every 10 years.

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?
