¿Cómo se tratan las cataratas?

Las cataratas pueden extraerse sólo con cirugía. El cristalino natural nublado del ojo se reemplazará por un cristalino artificial transparente. Este cristalino se denomina lente intraocular.

¿Qué es el queratocono?

El queratocono es una confición que sucede cuando la córnea se adelgaza y sobresale como un cono. El cambio de forma de la córnea hace que los rayos de luz se desenfoquen. Como resultado, la visión es borrosa y distorsionada, lo que dificulta las tareas diarias como leer y conducir.

¿En qué te beneficia la cirugía LASIK?

La cirugía LASIK se utiliza para tratar la miopía, la hipermetropía y el astigmatismo. El 90% que se someten al LASIK tienen como resultado una visión entre 20/20 y 20/40, sin anteojos ni lentes de contacto. Las personas pueden realizar la mayoría de sus actividades diarias normales sin lentes correctivos.


How do I know if I’m a good candidate for Lasik surgery?

Most people in their 20s, 30s or early 40s, with healthy eyes, adequate cornea thickness and that haven´t had any significant changes in their lens prescription during the past year, can be considered good candidates for this procedure.

We pay very close attention to all of these details, that is why due to our ethics, professionalism, experience and honesty in the candidate selection process, we have achieved more than 99% of success rate in the Lasik surgeries performed.

I want LASIK surgery, but what if I wear contact lenses?

If you wear contact lenses, it is a good idea to stop wearing them before your baseline evaluation and switch to wearing your glasses full-time (1 weeks for soft lenses, 2 weeks if you wear hard ones). Contact lenses change the shape of your cornea for up to several weeks after you have stopped using them depending on the type of contact lenses you wear. Not leaving your contact lenses out long enough for your cornea to assume its natural shape before surgery can have negative consequences, such as inaccurate measurements and a poor surgical plan, resulting in poor vision after surgery.

Is there a risk for LASIK surgery if I’m pregnant?

Since hormones change significantly during pregnancy and breast feeding (these fluctuations alter the corneal shape), it is recommended to wait at least 6 months after these stages to have the evaluation and surgery performed.

What it´s the post LASIK surgical care

We recommend that from now on, you use sunglasses and lubricant eye drops. Also, you will have to avoid the following activities after the surgery:

  • No squeezing or rubbing your eyes (1 week)
  • Avoid getting water in your eyes while taking a shower (1 week)
  • No swimming (1 month)
  • Avoid closed areas with smoke (1 week)
  • No eye makeup: mascara, eye shadow, eye liner, etc (1 week)

  • cataract surgery

    Cataracts can only be removed with surgery, during which an Intraocular Lens is placed. Currently there are a wide variety of Intraocular Lenses.

  • Lasik surgery

    LASIK is the most commonly performed laser eye surgery to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.

  • keratoconus

    We seek to stop the progression of Keratoconus (Crosslinking) and rehabilitate you in the simplest way possible (Contact Lens and Corneal Rings)
