Clinica Visualiza Ophthalmological Center offers advanced treatment options and leading edge technology, with experienced specialists needed for precision surgical eye care.
The clinic offers a variety of services such as:
LASIK refractive surgery:
LASIK is a surgical procedure that uses a excimer laser to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism.
WaveFront Optimized LASIK surgery:
Utilizes some of the latest technology to improve surgical corrective eye procedures. This type of procedure uses Wave front technology to customize a person’s LASIK correction procedure. The advantage of this technology is that a patient is able to have their cornea mapped down to the smallest detail. The surgeon can then achieve a finer level of correction when the cornea is reshaped. The results of Wave front LASIK are reportedly an increased quality of vision, reduction in night vision difficulties, and a reduction in halos and glare. The procedure used to correct the cornea is the same as the original LASIK surgery.
Intralase Femtosecond laser (bladeless surgery)
Intralase is a corrective eye surgery that uses a laser, instead of a blade, to create a flap in the cornea. This is the only ‘bladeless’ corrective eye surgery technique available at this time. The IntraLase laser works by creating a tiny layer of bubbles just below the surface of the cornea; this layer of bubbles allows the surgeon to gently lift the flap back without using a blade, and then the cornea is reshaped. The flap is folded back down after the surgery is performed and left to heal. The bladeless IntraLase procedure reduces possible complications that can occur from cutting into the cornea.
Retina and vitreous surgery:
Surgery to correct diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular hole, epimacular membrane and degenerative disease, as well as retinal tears or detachments.
Surgical treatment of disease or injury to the front of the eye. Treatments include small incision cataract surgery, corneal transplants and refractive surgery, asferic lens, toric lens, ReSTOR multifocal lens.
An ARTISAN lens is an implantable lens that is implanted in the eye for high myopes and hyperopes by an eye surgeon. The lens will stay there permanently and therefore you will be able to see clearly all the time; your glasses or contacts will not bother or limit you any longer. It seems as though you have no "refraction problem" any more. The lens needs no maintenance and can stay in your eye for the rest of your life.
The lens is available for nearsightedness (-1 to -23,5 diopter) and farsightedness (+1 to +12 diopter); cylinders (astigmatism) can also be corrected with the ARTISAN® lens.
(intrastromal corneal rings and corneal hardening crosslinking)
Keratoconus , is a degenerative disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea cause it to thin and change to a more conical shape than its normal gradual curve. In the mildest form of keratoconus, eyeglasses or soft contact lenses may help. But as the disease progresses and the cornea thins and becomes increasingly more irregular in shape, glasses or soft contacts no longer provide adequate vision correction
Glaucoma: Surgical management of glaucoma and other disorders that may cause optic nerve damage by increasing pressure within the eye
Surgical removal of the pterygium may be considered in severe cases when it interferes with vision or if you wear contact lenses or if you are having to blink a lot and the pterygium is causing a serious problem. It can also be removed if it is very uncomfortable or inflamed. You may want to get it removed for cosmetic reasons particularly if it becomes large and thick.
- Presbyopia surgery (lasik monovision or multifocal intraocular lens)
Corneal transplants A cornea transplant can restore vision, reduce pain and improve the appearance of a damaged or diseased cornea. A cornea transplant, also called keratoplasty, is typically performed as an outpatient procedure.
