Cornea, refractive surgery and cataracts

The Cornea, Refractive Surgery and Cataract Unit diagnoses and treats disorders related to the eye's cornea, surface and conjunctiva. We carry out refractive surgery using an excimer laser, implants of "contact" lenses or PIOLs, torus-shaped lenses and other types to correct age-related short-sightedness, as well as cataract surgery using latest generation technology.

To guarantee excellent sight and sharp long-distance vision after surgery, the Institut de la Màcula chooses the most suitable lens to implant in the eye in order to maximise the refractive index accuracy and precision in each particular case.
