Sjónlag Eye Center

Sjónlag is a leader in the field of refractive surgery in Iceland. Established in 2001, thousands of procedures have been successfully performed by skilled surgeons educated at the finest ophthalmology institutions in Scandinavia.

Our primary values include caring for our patients, quality of our education, service and competence, showing empathy and respect for every individual and to aim towards technical excellence in our work.

We offer refractive eye surgery, as well as other ophthalmological procedures. The most common refractive surgery offered is Femto-LASIK, which has become the most common surgical procedure in the world. In addition, we do phakic IOL’s using the ICL lens.  We do cataract surgery and Refractive Lens Excange (RLE) with monofocal, multifocal and accommodative IOL’s. 


Sjónlag offers the opportunity to become less dependent on the visual aid of glasses and contact lenses; as well as visiting the beautiful country of Iceland. In September 2012, Iceland was chosen the best European country in the Guardian Readers' Travel Awards.

To determine elgibility for refractive surgery, our traveling patients may want to have an examination performed in their home country. We emphasize, however, that this will only tell whether the patients are a likely candidate for surgery or not; we will always perform a thorough eye examination at Sjónlag Eye Center in order to confirm your elgibility for surgery.      

We are proud to offer the best in Icelandic medicine to patients choosing to have their surgery performed in the country, and doing so gives the opportunity to enjoy the various attractions that Iceland has to offer.


We are open weekdays from 8:30 to 16:00.
