The specialized care that we offer our patients is known for its superior quality and effectiveness.

We are active four days a week, performing approximately 2,000 procedures per year. Our unit includes six members. In addition to our dedicated team of specialized nurses, we also have a respiratory therapist assigned to intraoperative patient monitoring. 

We primarily perform cataract surgeries, including implants of soft (flexible) aspheric, toric or multifocal lenses. A few surgeons also provide ultra-specialized services related to glaucoma and the anterior segment of the eye (trabeculectomy and pterygium ablation, for example).

Please note that a medical referral is mandatory.
