10 reasons why we’re the most sought-after eye clinic in Central Europe

1. We have the largest team of specialists in Central Europe.

Our clinics employ 40 physicians and more than 200 nurses, optometrists and technicians. For this reason, we can offer you comprehensive knowledge and services in the area of ophthalmology, and thus you can be certain that, when it comes to your eyes, you can always rely on Lexum.

Our team is composed of experienced professionals. Get to know them.

A good result is guaranteed only at a facility with the comprehensive approach of a highly erudite staff, including precise indications.
MUDr. Věra Kalandrová

2. You won’t see such a thorough initial examination anywhere else

We do our work well from the beginning – because without a proper start the next step can’t follow. That’s why we’re so particular about a thorough initial examination, including perfect 3-D diagnostics (Pentacam) able to capture the slightest imperfection in your eye.

We devote immense care to every moment so that we can find the best option for your eyes together. It all begins with the initial examination – we’re the only ones who do an intensive, three-hour initial examination. Just like in Western Europe. Thanks to this, we can also take into consideration your needs, predilections or professional workload. Your vision deserves it.
MUDr. František Benda

3. Our experience can be seen.

For more than 20 years now, we’ve been helping you see better. During this time, we’ve performed more than 180,000 successful treatment procedures.

Those whom we have helped to see better are not just famous personalities, artists and top athletes. Most of them are people who simply decided to solve their vision problems without making compromises.

When selecting a clinic, I’d definitely follow the recommendations of patients. Select a facility that has extensive and long-term experience with the area in question. Top facilities invest in educating their employees, and use the most advanced methods and materials that current science can offer.
doc. MUDr. Zuzana Hlinomazová, Ph.D.

4. With us, you’ll be treated using only state-of-the-art medical instruments.

As part of the Carl Zeiss Partnership programme, we participate in developing the new technologies of a leading global optics manufacturer. We regularly invest tens of millions of crowns in lasers, ultrasound instruments, aberrometers, phacoemulsification instruments and optical computer tomographs.

Even though we have state-of-the-art equipment, we’re convinced that the most important thing is always the physician who performs the procedure.

A breakthrough in refractive surgery is the use of the so-called femtosecond laser, which enables us to operate with more than 99% accuracy.
MUDr. Urania Tavandzi

5. We have unique knowledge and experience.

The experience of our team of experts is based on a long tradition of the best university eye clinics in Bohemia and Moravia, the celebrated Hôtel-Dieu clinic in Paris, and one of the most renowned American clinics in Massachusetts – the Eye and Ear Infirmary at Harvard University in Boston. We were the first in the Czech Republic to perform laser vision correction. We keep up with and participate in the development of new methods and technologies. Our physicians are engaged in long-term collaboration with the 1st Medical Faculty at Charles University and regularly operate at prominent clinics abroad.

Technology is important, but the main thing is the surgeon’s experience. A procedure is only as good as the physician who performs it.
MUDr. Alena Holubová

6. Each of our clients has a different view of the world.

We know that every eye is unique, and that each of our clients has different requirements. Are you a professional driver? Are you an athlete, do you swim or work with a computer? Every lifestyle requires a slightly different solution.

For this reason, we devote as much time to every client as is necessary to perfectly understand not only his or her ocular defect, but also his or her lifestyle and needs.

It doesn’t matter whether you have half a dioptre or 20 dioptres. Today, by selecting an optimal method and treatment strategy tailored to each patient’s unique needs, we can correct almost any defect.
MUDr. Silvie Zapletalová

7. You’ll see better in 15 minutes.

Thanks to thorough preparation, a detailed understanding of your eyes, state-of-the-art instruments and the rigorous work of our physicians, we know how to perform laser correction of ocular defects and cataract surgery painlessly, safely and in just 15 minutes.

Most people laser vision correction and cataract surgery are long and painful procedures. To the contrary, you won’t feel pain either during or after the procedure. It’s done on an outpatient basis and with unexpected speed.

Today, laser surgery can be performed with extreme precision and safety. It’s among the safest procedures in medicine, and the likelihood of a problem is less than if you wear contact lenses.
Prof. MUDr. Martin Filipec, CSc.

8. The most important thing for us is a perfect result and your satisfaction.

If you’re looking for the lowest price on the market, we’ll tell you right up front that you won’t find it here. If we took the route of the lowest price, we’d have to make compromises in the treatment. The most important thing for us is your satisfaction with the result.

We offer a wide range of options at various price levels. But we’ll never recommend something that we’re not convinced is the best for you. For the prices we charge, we offer you a European level of treatment without compromises. The quality of treatment at Lexum European Eye Clinic is demonstrated by an ECOS international study as well as by tens of thousands of satisfied clients who have recommended our clinic to their loved ones.

You’ll find approximate prices listed alongside the description for each service.

The patient’s satisfaction reflects not only successful treatment, professional care and the physician’s demeanour toward the patient, but also – from a human perspective – an understanding of “your pain”. From this point of view, the patient’s satisfaction is the real appraisal of every physician’s work.
MUDr. Eliška Birndtová

9. People trust us – which you don’t see every day.

A full 7 out of 10 of you come to us on the recommendation of one of our former patients. This is the greatest commitment to ensure your satisfaction as well. We’re proud of the fact that among our clients are more than 1,200 physicians and their loved ones whom we’ve helped to see better.

Recently, we took a survey of our former patients whom we treated in the early 1990s, and found that 98% of them were still completely satisfied with the result even after such a long time.
MUDr. František Maršák

10. We’re the only clinic in the Czech Republic and Central Europe that can offer you comprehensive ophthalmological care

Our advantage is that we have the largest team of specialists who, due to their knowledge and experience, are able to treat all kinds of vision problems.

Thanks to this, you can be certain we won’t miss even the minutest detail, and that in every phase of the treatment you can rely on top experts with state-of-the-art medical equipment at their fingertips.

The training and professional qualifications of our specialists and of our team as a whole rank our clinic among the top in the world. This is demonstrated by the studies in which we participate.
MUDr. Ivan Fišer, Ph.D.

A look into the history of our clinic

Lexum European Eye Clinic was established in 1993 and today is one of the largest clinics in the world. Twenty years ago, we were the first in the Czech Republic to perform laser vision correction. Since then, we’ve earned the trust of our clients through more than 180,000 successful procedures. An ECOS international quality study has ranked us among the best clinics in Europe.

We’re looking ahead

If you want to be the best, you have to think continually about how to do your work even better. That’s why we’re involved in developing new materials, medical instruments and treatments.

The heart sees more than the eyes

Since our founding, we’ve been conducting humanitarian expeditions to places where most of the time there’s no medical care at all. Professor Filipec was the first white physician to visit the Venezuelan Indians to research and treat River Blindness. He taught corneal transplantation in war-ravaged Afghanistan, and has been to Africa’s poorest countries such as Burkina Faso, Rwanda and Ethiopia, where, as part of the international project Light for the World, he participated in a mission to expand treatment for cataracts – the leading cause of blindness in these countries. Read about our missions in the Lexum magazine.
