Laser operations




Myopia appears in adolescence, more rarely in childhood, and progresses into adulthood. It affects around 25% of the population.


This visual defect is characterized by blurred distance vision and sharp near vision. The myopic eye is too long and the image is formed behind the retina.


  • Symptoms: blurred far and near vision, visual fatigue and/or headaches

Myopia correction


The laser


Laser surgery for myopia is a common procedure that involves reducing the curvature of the cornea to allow the image to re-form on the retina (point of sharpness).


The procedure is painless and lasts just a few minutes. Both eyes are usually operated on at the same time.


All laser operations take place at the Azur Vision Ophthalmological Center.



  • Quick, painless operation
  • Depending on the technique chosen, visual recovery within 24 hours
