 Dr. Piovarči is the first slovak ophthalmic surgeon performing the following procedures:     

  • first laser surgeries of refractive errors using a femtosecond laser              
  • first laser surgeries of cataract using the femtosecond laser LenSx®         
  • multiple implantations of the phakic lenses ICL and Cachet, broad usage of multifocal lenses                                                                                                                                                     

Dr. Piovarči has undergone an eye surgery with the surgical procedure femtoLASIK, performed with a femtosecond laser in 2010 at our Eye Clinic NeoVízia. The surgical procedure was performed by Dr. Josef Hycl. „The fact that I have undergone an eye surgery with the surgical procedure femtoLASIK, is a great help to me. My patients are asking me about details that I could never answer just as a surgeon. Thanks to femtoLASIK,, I can also provide them with my point of view as a patient, describe everything they will feel during the procedure and calm them down if they are experiencing some fear,“ explains Dr. Piovarči.
