  • Cataract surgery including implant of Intraocular lenses -IOLs (multifocal, trifocal, toric lenses etc.) to correct long, intermediate and short distance, eliminating the need to wear glasses in nearly all cases.
  • Ocular surface surgery (pterigium with autograft, conjunctival tumors etc.)
  • Glaucoma surgery (trabeculectomy, non perforating deep sclerectomy, glaucoma implants etc.)
  • Retina surgery (intravitreal injections)

Ophthalmology Department We recommend all patients get their eyes examined by an ophthalmologist at least once a year. Some diseases like glaucoma don’t show any symptoms until they have reached an advanced stage, but an early diagnosis and treatment can prevent permanent optic nerve damage.

With time, nearly everyone develops cataracts or clouding of the natural lens called the crystalline. This not only reduces visual acuity, but can also cause discomfort to light, difficulty driving at night etc. Cataract surgery has advanced significantly in the last few years, allowing us to offer this quick and safe surgery to practically anyone interested in not only seeing better but also being spectacle independent by implanting intraocular multifocal lenses. At Helicopteros Sanitarios, we have the latest equipment to offer a high success in your cataract surgery.
