INSTITUTE FOR INNOVATION IN VISION SCIENCE
The Switzerland Eye Research Institute was founded in Lugano in 2013 by Dr. Roberto Pinelli, a researcher and surgeon of many years’ experience, who is world-renowned for having developed new surgical techniques for the correction of visual impairments, and for the invention of ophthalmic formulations patented and marketed by multinational companies in the ophthalmic sector.
SERI Lugano, in Canton Ticino, is a referral centre of excellence for research and surgical innovation in ophthalmology, offering solutions through the use of photons, to all visual defects and to presbyopia. The scientifically-recognized procedures are completely non-invasive, always bilateral and completely pain-free both during and after the procedure. Dr. Pinelli harnesses the healing power of modulated light to treat retinal degenerative diseases with the Lugano Protocol, which combines photobiomodulation (PBM) with nutraceuticals. He has developed Femtolasik Lux®, a non-surgical procedure requiring absolutely no scalpels or knives for the resolution of visual impairments and presbyopia, and Transepithelial Osmotic Cross-linking with ParaCel®, a non-invasive treatment for keratoconus using ultraviolet light.
