It has been said that "the eyes are the window
to one's soul".
The opposite can also be said that, your eyes are your window
to the magnificent world around you.
Our mission at the Olympia Eye and Laser Centre is to enable
you to see your world as clearly and as comfortable as possible,
and through this, add value to your quality of
life. Through accurate diagnostics, state of the art technology
and dedicated, specialist treatment, we are able to offer
optimal solutions to your visual requirements and impairments.
We offer a full eye service which includes diagnostics, treatments,
management, advice, optical solutions, surgeries, including advanced laser treatments.
These services are provided by a combination of Eye Specialists (Ophthalmologists), Optometrists,
Professional Nurses and other ancillary staff.
have fully equipped onsite operating theatres, which provide for both
surgical and laser treatments of all commonly occuring eye or ocular
Apart from the usual range of Ophthalmic services, we offer certain unique services in Namibia including:
Refractive/Vision Correction procedures:
Excimer Laser vision correction with our Schwind 1050RS Excimer laser which can be combined with our Z8 Ziemer Femtolaser -
The excimer related procedures we can do include:
TransPRK with SmartSurfACE/ Z-Lasik / Z-Lasik-Z / Lasek / Epi-Lasik / PRK
Phakic Lens Implants,
are a second option for vision correction, where laser is not
indicated. We have long term experience
with the commonly used implants such as the Visian ICL and Ophtec Artisan/ Artiflex implants for both spherical and toric (astigmatic) corrections. These implants can cover virtually any refractive error.
A combination of Excimer and Phakic implants [Bioptics] may sometimes be required.
ICRS -Intracorneal Ring Segment implants- for diseased cornea such as Keratoconus, where we use Mediphacos-Kerarings - These rings can be precisely placed within the cornea with the aid of the Ziemer Femtolaser.
The Femtolaser is also used in corneal transplant procedures [Keratoplasty].
We offer a comprehensive management of Keratoconus, which includes a combination of options such as Corneal Crosslinking alone, or in combination with specialised contact lenses, e.g. scleral lenses,
and/or excimer "regularisation" and/or phakic implants, and in severe
cases corneal transplants [keratoplasty] [either full thickness or
Trifocal/Multifocal and Toric intraocular lens implants [IOL's].
We have extensive experience in cataract - phacoemulsification -
procedures, with optically advanced monofocal implants and we frequently use multifocal/trifocal implants.
Our current implant of choice is the Zeiss At Lisa or Zeiss AT Lisa Toric-Trifocal.
We also offer monovision options to reduce dependence on spectacles
after surgery, where a multifocal or trifocal implant may not be
indicated or desired.
Our surgery suite is equipped with the latest Zeiss microscopes and the Zeiss Callisto computer assisted cataract surgery unit.
We use a combination of the most advanced implant strength calculation
formulae [e.g. Barrett, Olsen, Haigis, Holladay2] together with our and Lenstar
and IOLMaster700 Optical biometers to aim for the most precise measurements and calculations for the
optimal IOL power to be implanted into your eye[s].
Glaucoma - laser options - SLT + Micropulse [MLT]
Apart from the routine treatment and management of glaucoma we offer laser options such as SLT [Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty] and MLT [Micropulse Laser Trabeculoplasty]
The same Diode laser can be used for treating uncontrolled glaucoma
treated via conventional medications [eye drops] and surgeries via a cylodiode laser.
Retina Laser Applications
Also apart from the usual retinal laser treatments with Argon type laser or intravitreal injections, we can offer a micropulse option which
may be preferable in certain conditions such as diabetic macular
oedema. The latter offers a solution with minimal collateral tissue
