New method for treatment of eye errors – sc. selective crosslinking (CXL)


On Wednesday 23rd April 2014, dr. Stodůlka performed the first and brand new procedure for correction of eye errors with a sc. selective crosslinking method.

During the procedure with this method the cornea becomes reshaped as well as strengthened with a new device called KXL II system (Avedro, USA). The method is unique in its capability to reshape as well as strengthen the cornea in only one step. The method is suitable for corrections of lower eye errors, but its main benefit demonstrates mainly in more complicated eye error corrections such as in structural deformation of the cornea called keratoconus.

The world first presbyopic lens of a new type implanted at GEMINI Zlín


The lens of the new generation and of revolutionary design was implanted for the first time in the world at GEMINI Eye Clinic in Zlín.

The new phakic diffractive lens is a solution for presbyopia and helps the patients from their reading glasses. Presbyopia occurs in almost all people over 40 years of age. "In the past years, presbyopia was treated by an exchange of the human lens for an artificial intraocular lens. For the first time it is possible to implant a so called posterior chamber phakic lens with diffractive optics. This allows to leave the human lens in the eye. The procedure offers a solution for treating the patient`s  poor distance as well as poor reading distance vision," described Pavel Stodůlka, the head surgeon at GEMINI Eye Clinic.

Dr. Stodůlka introduces a new solid state laser in the Czech Republic


The new Katana LaserSoft laser system is intended for use in ophthalmic refractive surgery so that people do not need to wear glasses or contact lenses. The new technology of the laser, whose wave length differs from all currently used ophthalmic lasers, increases the precision of the laser. "We are speaking about a so called solid state laser and thus its reliability is higher than in other currently used gas lasers and the operating costs should be lower," explains dr. Stodůlka.
