Leading the way in Ophthalmology

Ocular diseases

  • Cataract

    Thanks to the latest innovations in intraocular lenses, we can regain the vision lost due to cataracts and reduce the dependency on glasses at the same time.

  • Retinal detachment

    In most cases, the vision can be recovered after a surgery for retinal detachment: But if it is not treated, the patient’s vision could be irrevocably lost.

  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma entails a loss of the vision field, usually asymptomatic until later stages of the disease. If it is not treated properly, it can induce blindness.

  • Dry eye syndrome or keratoconjunctivitis sicca

    Dryness, inconvenience, stinging or a feeling of sand in the eye could be symptoms of dry eye syndrome and require personalized treatment.

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

    AMD it is a pathology that affects the central vision. It progresses as the patient’s age increases and can lead to blindness if not treated early.

  • Presbyopia

    Difficulty to focus in short distances usually begins to appear at 40-45 years old and can be corrected through refractive surgery.
