Even as a kid, Paul Janke had to contend with a visual impairment of -6 dpt. "I was practically blind, couldn't see anything without my glasses. And my eyesight was getting worse and worse." In front of the camera, he always wore contact lenses, but this became cumbersome over time. "I took the idea of an operation very seriously. After all, the eyes are our most important sensory organ. But the technology is now so established that there's nothing to be afraid of."

EuroEyes is the largest clinic group in Germany for eye lasers, LASIK and lens surgery. For over 25 years, EuroEyes surgeons have performed more than 500,000 eye treatments. These highly-experienced, top physicians always used the most innovative methods for the individually-tailored treatment of their patients. Thus, EuroEyes can correct vision defects such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia in its clinics.

"I have been flirting with having a procedure for a long time. So I thought I would visit the EuroEyes clinic in Hamburg and have a preliminary examination. And ten days later I already had an appointment for the ReLEx smile treatment."

The  ReLEx smile procedure is the safest and most innovative form of eye laser procedure available today. With ReLEx smile, the eyes can be lasered without requiring a "flap". The eye is protected, the cornea remains stable and flap complications are ruled out. This minimally invasive treatment is the first choice for the correction of myopia, astigmatism and dry eyes.

"It was just a small cut, I didn't feel anything and everything healed perfectly. The next day I already had 100% vision. That's crazy - the procedure only takes 32 seconds per eye and then you can see properly again."

Two months later, Paul came for a final check at EuroEyes: "I am super happy. I can finally see really sharply - without contact lenses and glasses. From now on I only exist without glasses. Simply perfect. I have gained an incredible quality of life. I'm so happy that I decided to have the procedure at EuroEyes."
