Ophthalmic Surgery

Ophthalmic surgery is the branch of surgery that operates on the ocular system. In recent years, it has seen significant expansion thanks to the adoption of laser technology, which reduces both procedure times and patient recovery times. Ophthalmic surgery can address conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, or retinal detachment, as well as dysfunctions like myopia and presbyopia.

Today, ophthalmic surgeries boast a high success rate, both for cataract and glaucoma procedures, as well as for the correction of visual defects. Ophthalmic surgeries are preceded by an ophthalmic examination and tests to prevent any possible complications and achieve the best possible outcome. During these visits, the ophthalmologist assesses whether surgery is necessary and its extent.

The outpatient clinic and the operating room dedicated to ophthalmic surgery are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments, including a cutting-edge optical coherence tomography (OCT) device and YAG and Argon lasers capable of performing targeted investigations to precisely assess the patient’s visual conditions and consequently their clinical status.

Ophthalmic surgery is performed in a specially equipped operating room where procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia or other techniques as determined by the anesthetist. The duration of the procedure varies depending on its nature, but technology has significantly shortened operation times. After most procedures, patients experience rapid recovery and can quickly return to their normal activities.

There are multiple types of ophthalmic surgeries that can be performed:

  • Probing and irrigation of lacrimal ducts
  • Chalazion and eyelid neoplasm
  • Ectropion
  • Entropion
  • Pterygium
  • Xanthelasma
  • Bilateral xanthelasma
  • Blepharochalasis
  • Complete blepharoplasty
  • Upper or lower blepharoplasty
  • Eyelid ptosis
  • Cataract surgery
  • Intravitreal injections
