MADE-TO-MEASURE EXCELLENCE FOR EACH PATIENT
The procedures for the correction of eyesight disorders are divided into two categories: those performed on the corneal surface by means of therapies that use light sources for each phase of the treatment, femtosecond, exciplex and ultraviolet; and those involving the insertion or replacement of an intraocular lens.
ALL-ROUND CARE FOR EVERY EYESIGHT PROBLEM
Clinical ophthalmology, namely that branch of ophthalmology specifically aimed at the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, provides ophthalmic surgery support in SERI Lugano. The aim here is to resolve all the eyesight disorders a patient might have, with the same degree of depth and specialization. Thus the patient can also turn to the Switzerland Eye Research Institute for vision problems that do not result from disorders of visual acuity (e.g., myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism or presbyopia), but rather arise from disorders that result in reduced visual capacity: this is the case of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
This branch, known as retinal medicine, is closely aligned with the field of pediatric ophthalmology for the early screening of vision disorders and eye diseases in children and the monitoring of the development of their vision system.
