Your glasses-free life - take the test now
Free of charge and without any commitments, you can find out whether your eyes can be lasered by simply entering your diopter values from your prescription.

How to read your prescription
An eye that is considered to have normal eyesight has a total refractive power of approx. 63 diopters maximum. A diopter is the unit of measurement for the refractive index. 43 diopters are measured on the cornea and about 10-20 diopters on the lens. (However, for optical reasons, the two cannot simply be added.) A visual disorder (ametropia) is measured as a deviation in diopters from these ideal values.
Nearsightedness or farsightedness is indicated in your eyeglass prescription (in German, your Brillenpass) as Sph for sphere, astigmatism as Cly standing for cylinders, and presbyopia as add standing for addition. In order to be able to see clearly, these values must be counter corrected. This is usually done through glasses or contact lenses but can also be achieved permanently with laser eye surgery.
In order to provide you with best advice in a personal and free consultation, we need your spherical values which can be found in your eyeglass prescription. However, we also measure your eyes again before the consultation.
F means distance glasses; N stands for near / reading glasses and G for varifocals
Indicates the diopter value of the lens. Nearsightedness: minus, Farsightedness: plus
Describes the mathematical value of astigmatism.
The number of degrees indicates the direction in which the astigmatism is present.
If you are presbyopic, this value describes the strength of your lenses.
PD: Pupil Distance
These values indicate the distance from the center of your pupils to the middle of the bridge of the nose.
