This specialty encompasses diseases affecting the Vitreous and Retina. The most common diseases are: macular holes, detachments of the Retina, Diabetic Retinopathy, Macular Edema, Inflammation and Infections that can prevent light from reaching properly to the retina. For the surgical procedure we used microincision instrumentation and the latest laser technology. The most common surgeries are: Simple Vitrectomy, Cerclage, vitrectomy with gas, Vitrectomy With Silicone Oil, endophotocoagulation, intravitreal injections



Used for people with Myopia, hyperopia, Astigmatism and presbyopia.

We have Laser Eximer equipment that allows us to utilize all the Queratomileusis's current technologies for Photoablation (LASIK, PRK, LASEK), 5 Microqueratomos's Units for traditional surgery and Femtosecond to realize Flap (Court of the previous caps of the Cornea), Rings Laser Intracorneal and keratoplasty.



Used for persons with pathologies that affect the Crystalline one, the most frequent of them the Cataract (Opaqueness of the Crystalline one). The most common reasons are Senile Cataract, Congenital Cataract, Traumatic Cataract, Crystalline Sub-luxados. In this Surgery we use equipments of Microincision, Ultrasound and replace the Crystalline one with Intra-ocular Lenses of the highest quality.



This specialization of Ophthalmology refers to all diseases that have to do with: Conjunctiva, Eyelids, Tear Duct, Orbit and Eyeball.


Among the most frequently performed surgeries in this field include:

  • Pterygium (growth of the conjunctiva which tends to invade the Cornea

  • Blepharoplasty (excess skin on the eyelids)

  • Ptosis (eyelid drop)

  • Ectropion (eversion of the eyelid)

  • Entropion (inversion Eyelid)

  • Chalazion (Inflammation of a meibomian gland or eyelid)

  • Benign and Malignant Tumor.

  • Enucleation (Removal Eyeball by tumors, trauma or inflammations)

  • Evisceration (Removing the Eyeball Contents)

  • In the last two cases is the reconstruction of the eye so that the patient can use an Ocular Prosthesis aesthetic that is also made in the clinic.



This specialty of Ophthalmology treated pathologies is associated with increased intraocular pressure, which is not adequately controlled with medication, to prevent optic nerve damage or compromise the visual field. For these pathologies incisional surgeries are practiced such as the trabeculectomy (without and with application of Mitomycin C), trabeculectomies, Implant of drainage valve type Ahmed; and the not incisional realized with Laser Diode and Yag Laser.



This speciality of the Ophthalmology treats the deviations or loss of the parallelism of the eyes. The Strabologist Physician will determine in agreement to the pathology the more suitable surgical method of correction. It is realized using microscope to obtain a better visualization and therefore major precision what is translated in a minor surgical trauma and better post operative results. The most used technologies are retroinsertion, resection and isolating the muscle.
