Department specialized in the correction of refractive problems such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, cataracts and presbyopia. The department offers tailored solutions for each patient, achieving this goal with the best technology in intraocular lens surgery or double laser.
It is a refractive problem that manifests itself because the image is formed in front of the retina, either because the cornea, the lens or both are very powerful, or because the eye is longer than standard. The patient with this refractive problem sees distant objects blurred.
It is an defect of the visual approach, this occurs in some cases because the eye is shorter than the emmetropic eye (standard) and therefore the images of distant objects are focused behind the retina. The patient with this refractive problem sees nearby objects blurred.
It is a refractive problem that occurs when the cornea (the outer and transparent layer of the eye) does not have the same curvature in all its areas. In other words, its toricity or symmetry is affected. When astigmatism occurs, the light comes from the objects, and when it enters the eye, focuses on more than one point of the retina. This causes a blurred and distorted vision.
Over the years or occasionally due to some disease, the crystalline that is a lens located behind the pupil, whose function is to sharply focus on the objects, begins to lose transparency and consequently the visual quality is affected.
People who are accustomed to having a good vision usually realize around the age of 40 who begin to have difficulty reading or focusing on nearby objects. This pathology is Presbyopia, badly called "tired eyesight" since it is not due to fatigue but to a loss of elasticity of the inner lens of the eye, the Crystalline.
