Capsulotomy is a surgical procedure that must be performed after cataract surgery, depending on the characteristics of the eye, the implanted lens and especially the patient's age.
The treatment consists of the "cleaning" or removal of the posterior lens capsule by Yag Laser.
We have Lasers for the treatment of eye diseases, including Green Diode Laser Supra from Quantel Medical, for the treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy.
Laser Yag Alcon 9000, for lens cleaning, after cataract surgery and for narrow-angle glaucoma surgery, among others.
In our specialized center we perform all kinds of laser procedures, among which are:
• Yag Laser Capsulotomy
• Yag Laser Iridotomy
• Retinal Pancreatic Coagulation
• Macular Photo Stimulation Micropulse Laser Diode
• Lasik and Prk surgery
Procedures we perform
Yag Laser Capsulotomy
Yag Laser Iridotomy
Iridotomy consists of the realization of a small hole in the periphery of the iris that allows to communicate the zone posterior to the previous zone, and thus, to balance the pressures between them.
Before performing the procedure, the size of the pupil with a medication is reduced. The laser is then applied by a lens directly onto the iris and a hole is formed through which the lens can be seen. The procedure is very safe.
Retinal Panphoto coagulation
It is a treatment to decrease the severity of diabetic retinopathy, vascular occlusions and neovascular glaucoma’s.
It consists of the use of a high precision laser with which your ophthalmologist closes (cauterizes) the abnormal blood vessels / extras present in the retina avoiding the excess of bleeding that can damage the same. This is an outpatient procedure.
It is worth mentioning that it is not a refractive process, but its purpose is to control abnormal blood vessels and avoid retinal detachment.
Refractive surgery is a set of procedures that modify the anatomy of the eye, especially the cornea, definitively eliminating the refractive defects of myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism so that the use of glasses or contact lenses is not necessary.
