Refractive Surgery

Lasik surgery

It consists of the modification of the shape of the cornea to change its power or total graduation of the eye. To do this, the epithelium (thin and superficial layer) must be carefully separated from the cornea, either mechanically or with the extremely precise FEMTOSECOND LASER, and then apply the excimer laser that models the cornea to correct the desired diopters. Finally, the area treated with the epithelium is covered, previously separated, without the need for suture, to restore the standard eye surface. Currently, the excimer laser allows personalized treatments to increase the accuracy of the correction and the quality of vision in special situations such as night vision, while respecting more efficiently the thickness of the cornea. Laser surgery is performed with topical anesthesia (anesthetic drops) in a few minutes and tends to restore vision in a few hours, so that the patient can often perform most of his usual activities the day after the operation without the necessity to use optical correction.

Premium Lens Surgery

Premium lenses represent a new generation of intraocular implants with revolutionary designs. In general they allow patients to be independent of the glasses for most of their daily activities. They are advanced intraocular lenses that try to correct most refractive defects (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia). They include different models, ranging from intraocular contact lenses (ICL) for young people with myopia or hyperopia; those of high definition (HD) that give them a better visual quality; multifocal and accommodative intraocular lenses for presbyopia; finally the toric versions of each of them to correct associated astigmatism.

ICL Lens Surgery

When defining refractive surgery, the most important factors to consider are the magnitude of these defects, the characteristics of the eye to be treated and the age of the patient. In young patients with moderate to severe defects and with a thin cornea, the most appropriate technique is one that uses phakic lenses (no need to remove the lens) such as the ICL. This intraocular lens was designed for the correction of myopia or hyperopia in young patients, and allows them to retain the ability to see closely without correction since it does not replace the natural lens. Our experience with this Premium lens dates back to 1993, when Dr. Roberto Zaldivar became one of the main surgeons involved in the development not only of the ICL lens but of its implantation technique. Thanks to this scientific merit, Dr. Roberto Zaldivar constantly receives international recognition.

Cataract Surgery with Phacoemulsification and IOL Implant

It consists of the extraction of the opacified lens and its replacement by an artificial one (intraocular implant) that is placed in the same place of the lens allowing the person, in most cases, to recover the lost vision. The operation is usually performed under local anesthesia and is ambulatory; that is, the patient returns home the same day of the intervention.

Cornea

Retina

Glaucoma

Dry Eye

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

The treatment only lasts a few minutes. It is not invasive, it is ambulatory, it does not hurt and does not require anesthesia. The patient is comfortably seated in a treatment chair. The specialist puts eye protection glasses and gel in the region of the cheekbones to be treated. A sequence of flashes is performed on the skin of one cheekbone and then the other. Manual expression of the Meibomian glands is performed.

iLUX

The treatment only lasts a few minutes. It is not invasive, it is ambulatory and it does not hurt. "The patient" is comfortably seated in a treatment chair. The specialist puts a drop of topical anesthesia on each eye. Heat and local compression is applied to the eyelids of each eye to be treated. The mechanical expression of the Meibomian glands is performed.
