The department has consolidated its position as a national and international reference in its specialty thanks to the extensive experience of our team of professionals.

We cover all ocular processes, both in the diagnosis and treatment of adults and children patients. We offer innovative pharmacological and surgical treatments, with the best diagnostic means, focused on the safety and entire satisfaction of our patients.
