Our Allegretto Wavelight Eye-Q Excimer Laser technology, which provides parameters of accuracy and safety in visual recovery, which decreases and even eliminates the dependence on magnifying lenses and contact lenses.
A cataract is an opacity of the lens (crystalline) of the eye, which is normally clear and transparent; it can be compared to a window that "frost" with ice or "fogs" with steam.
Keratoconus is an unusual condition, in which the cornea (the transparent part on the front of the eye) is abnormally thin and protrudes forward.
Glaucoma is an eye disease that is defined as progressive optic neuropathy or optic nerve disease.
It is a condition of deviation from the abnormal alignment of one eye with respect to the other.
The Pterigium, or more known in our medium as Pterygium, refers to an abnormal growth of tissue on the cornea, the anterior surface of the eye, which is normally transparent and without blood vessels, which easily becomes inflamed when exposed to sunlight, the wind or any other irritating agent.
We are pioneers in this type of surgery, we have been performing corneal transplants since 1992, being one of the private ophthalmological centers with the highest number of transplants in Ecuador, with extraordinary results in our patients.
The eye contour is the most fragile and delicate zone on the face. It requires a special attention because the age, fatigue and stress can leave different signs such as dark circles, crow´s feet, eye bags and eyelid swelling.
Intravitreal Injections such as Avastin, Lucentis and Eylea are treatments for eye diseases and age-related macular degeneration. This kind of injections are also used to treat eye diseases related with diabetes and other retinal problems.
Nowadays we have an integral treatment and the newest technology to diagnose dry eye, thanks to the I-Pen that allows to perform an osmolarity test. The Keratograph 5M and the Meibiography help to diagnose dysfunctionality of the meibomian glands and the behavior of the tear film.
This equipment was developed to perform posterior capsulotomy. This kind of treatment is needed sometimes after a cataract surgery. This laser can be used also in patients suffering from glaucoma to perform an iridectomy or trabeculoplasty.

Frequently Asked Questions
The appearance of a tissue (carnaza) in the conjunctiva (white part of the eye) is called pterygium or terigo, in some cases patients confuse this tissue with cataract, which is usually almost imperceptible to the human eye, except in advanced cases .
The pterygium can cause discomfort such as redness of the eye, burning, itching or foreign body sensation and in some advanced cases can affect the patient’s vision. We have the best extraction techniques, reducing the possibilities of future growth.
Keratoconus is one of the pathologies whose diagnosis, thanks to technology, has become increasingly frequent in recent years. This disease, which can cause irreversible damage, must be treated in time.
We have advanced technology to prevent the deformation or conification of the cornea through corneal crosslinking, which provides a vitamin complex in the cornea and with the help of ultraviolet lights, strengthens it.
The placement of intracorneal rings is also an option to improve vision in cases of stable keratoconus.
For more severe situations, the cornea transplant is also presented as an alternative. We are one of the centers accredited by INDOT to carry out this procedure.
Strabismus or ocular deviation is one of the visual problems that it is advisable to treat at an early age (childhood), in order to avoid complications such as visual loss (amblyopia or lazy eye). This is why it is recommended to visit the ophthalmologist within the first years of life to be able to detect problems that may be irreversible in the future.
In adults, the treatment of strabismus is also possible, however it must be diagnosed accurately.
The techniques and technology used in our procedures guarantee optimal and satisfactory results in our patients.
