ICR Ophthalmological Centre

Institut Català de Retina (ICR) is an ophthalmological centre of national and international reference, founded more than 30 years ago by Dr. Ramon Martí i Bonet. Its main objectives are the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and control of diseases of the eyes, the visual system and the ocular adnexa.

The more than 350 professionals of the group, including 90 ophthalmologists, have managed to turn it into a pioneer organization of recognized prestige in the field of health and, especially, within the field of ophthalmology. One of the priorities of our center, in addition, is to offer a humane and personalized treatment, that is why our healthcare team is also trained to attend patients in English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Arabic, German or Russian.

ICR stands out not only for having highly qualified professionals but also for having the latest technological advances, both for diagnostic tests, as well as for lasers and surgical and therapeutic procedures. Our passion for the care of vision makes us incorporate any novelty that may benefit the patient, provided that this is based on scientific evidence.

ICR HEADQUARTERSE. Ganduxer 117, 08022 Barcelona

The Emergency Department has 5 simultaneous consultations aimed exclusively at attending ophthalmological emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In them we have up to 5 ophthalmologists in addition to surgeons available on call.

Located on the ground floor of the ICR headquarters, this department allows us to guarantee complete assistance to patients with visual problems, since we have all the necessary equipment for proper urgent care.

Since its creation, the ICR Emergency Department has enjoyed the trust of our patients, as well as ophthalmologists from all over Catalonia, who have referred their patients here. In addition, we have established agreements with health insurers and with important mutual accidents at work. In this way, medical and surgical care is also offered to those affected by accidents or occupational diseases of the eye.


At ICR we always work with last generation lasers. That is why we have incorporated into our centre the latest developments in laser platforms.

The integrated platform WAVELIGHT® Refractive Suite is one of the fastest refractive platforms in the world and has both the WAVELIGHT® EX500 excimer laser and the WAVELIGHT® FS200 femtosecond laser.

The platform features WaveNet™, an integrated computer network, which allows easy transfer of patient data through diagnostic devices. The combination of the best excimer and femtosecond technology with this pioneering software provides faster treatments and better results.

In addition, we have the most advanced microscopes in the world. These microscopes allow us to implant intraocular and Premium lenses (trifocal and toric [astigmatism]) with the highest precision.

Teaching and research

Investigación ICR

We must not forget either the field of research, which is the basis of clinical assistance and the foundation of scientific rigor. In this sense, ICR is one of the few centres accredited by the prestigious European Vision Institut (EVI) to carry out international clinical research studies. Thus, ICR’s research capacity guarantees, promotes and facilitates the investigation of the highest quality and rigor in the field of ophthalmology.

On the other hand, medicine is a science that is constantly changing and evolving, so continuing education is essential. Teaching is a key element with a long tradition in ICR. Proof of this is the extensive calendar of clinical sessions in which our doctors and optometrists participate, as well as the weekly monographic meetings of each department.

In addition, we have consolidated our medical and surgical ophthalmology masters, the training of resident doctors and the teaching of future doctors at the Faculty of Medicine of the International University of Catalonia.
