Czech president underwent a surgery at Gemini Eye Clinic in Zlin


At the beginning of February 2012, the President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus underwent an eye surgery at Dr. Pavel Stodulka`s Gemini Eye Clinic in Zlin. The President underwent a cataract surgery of both eyes. As one of the first patients in the Czech Republic and in Europe, the President Vaclav Klaus was operated on with the latest method – with a VICTUS femtosecond laser platform which enables the cataract surgery to be performed in a more precise and gentler way.


After the successful surgery, Vaclav Klaus departed for Prague.

Now, the President does not need his glasses anymore and sees clearly at all distances as well as at the reading distance.


New Crystal Line femtosecond laser



Since Wednesday, 7th December 2011, Gemini Eye Clinic uses a new Ziemer Crystal Line LDV femtosecond laser. Crystal Line is the fastest and most gentle laser for laser eye surgeries available. Thanks to its precise laser technology, thus the highest possible quality of the vision is obtained. The vision improvement is achieved immediately after the surgery, very often during the first few hours after the surgery.




Keratoconus treatment with CXL method now within 3 minutes


On Thursday September 8, Dr. Stodůlka performed corneal cross-linking with the Avedro KXL system. Thanks to this system, which is the first KXL system in the Czech Republic and one of the ten in Central Europe, the cross-linking time was reduced from original 30 minutes to 3 minutes only. The patient`s exposure is thus shorter and the procedure is thus more comfortable for them. The keratoconus treatment using new Avedro KXL system represents fast and painless solution for patients with keratoconus.


Unique surgery at Gemini Eye Clinic


Gemini Eye Clinic in Zlin witnessed a unique surgery performed by its head surgeon Dr. Pavel Stodulka. Dr. Stodulka performed a 27G vitrectomy – a surgery during which some or all vitreous humor is removed and which is carried out on an outpatient basis, is sutureless and does not require the patient to be under general anaesthesia. The size of the incision is less than 0,4mm and the surgery thus ensures more postoperative comfort and faster healing to the patients.
