    We use the most appropriate surgical technique for each case

    At Vithas Eurocanarias Instituto Oftalmológico we offer the most advanced surgical techniques to correct refractive defects, and we also use the most appropriate surgical techniques for each patient, customizing the treatment. 

    Currently, the laser is the first choice to correct eye refractive defects. However, when there is high myopia or the criteria for applying the laser is not met, alternatives such as the ICL lens implants are available, respecting all the structures of the eye and being minimally invasive to correct myopia, far-sightedness and/or astigmatism. 

    The previous study by the ophthalmologist, using advanced diagnostic equipment, will allow deciding the right technique for your eyes. 

    • The LASIK technique, the most traditional 
    • Femtolasik technology Femtosecond laser technology (100% laser) 
    • ICL lenses (implantable contact lens) 

    What is laser refractive surgery? 

    It is the group of surgical techniques that eliminate or minimize ocular refractive defects: myopia, far-sightedness or astigmatism. Normally the image penetrates the eye through the cornea and the lens until it is projected into the retina through a process called refraction. Then, from the retina, that image is transmitted to the brain thanks to the optic nerve. Therefore, when we have a refractive defect, the image is projected abnormally; we perceive the altered image and, as a consequence, we see it blurred. 

    Laser refractive surgery is the first choice to correct these types of eye defects for many reasons: 

    • Convenience to develop daily activity, whether at home, at work or performing sports activities. 
    • Aesthetics 
    • Hygiene (in the case of contact lenses, very strict hygiene must be maintained to avoid possible infections and / or discomfort). 
    • Economy both glasses and contact lenses need to be constantly renewed. 

    Vithas Eurocanarias Instituto Oftalmológico is an Ophthalmologic Ambulatory Major Surgery Centre equipped with cutting-edge technology for the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and vision defects, with three exclusive operating rooms for eye surgery. We also have a large medical team specialized in solving refractive problems with more than 20 years of experience.
