The specialists provide the following procedures as well as the necessary examinations prior to surgery.


Cataract surgery

Cataract surgery

The aim of this treatment is to replace the patient’s lens, which has become opaque due to the cataract, with an artificial, customised lens. To do this, the surgeon makes an incision in the cornea and uses ultrasound to extract the lens affected by the cataract.

Cataract surgery is a pain-free procedure, generally performed under local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Retinal surgery

Retinal surgery

Retinal surgery does not necessarily require the patient to be sedated. Local anaesthesia around the eye is generally administered, along with the administering of medication to relax the patient during the procedure.

During this type of operation, the surgeon has to insert trocars into the eyeball, which allows them to insert forceps and the other instruments required for the surgery.

Glaucoma surgery

Glaucoma surgery

Glaucoma surgery generally comes into consideration when eye drops or laser treatments prove insufficient to treat the patient. The main objective of glaucoma surgery is to reduce intraocular pressure so that the glaucoma cannot progress any further.

This type of procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia.

Refractive surgery

Refractive surgery

During refractive surgery, the surgeon aims to correct problems with the patient’s vision by changing the curvature of their cornea. The procedure is performed using a laser, which emits rays capable of sculpting the cornea. Myopia, astigmatism and hypermetropia are conditions that can be corrected with this type of treatment.

Refractive surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthesia.

Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a form of plastic and cosmetic surgery aiming to correct the appearance of the epidermis around the eye. This procedure aims to tone up the eye area while treating, in particular, dark circles under the eye and the natural sagging of the tissue around the eyes.


Fluorescein angiography of the retina

A fluorescein angiography of the retina is an additional non-invasive diagnostic examination used if the ophthalmologist suspects abnormalities at the back of the eye. In this case, the vascularisation of the retina is assessed, enabling the potential damage to be localised precisely.

This is a pain-free examination requiring the dilation of the eye.

OCT or optical coherence tomography

OCT or optical coherence tomography is a new, next-generation, non-invasive technique that allows retinal conditions to be studied. Like an ultrasound, this technique uses infrared laser beams to analyse the frontal, sagittal and three-dimensional sections of the retina and cornea.


A topography is a diagnostic examination that allows the cornea to be analysed. The examination involves viewing high-contrast images. The ophthalmologist can study the reflection of the cornea and its curvature to determine any abnormalities.

The examination takes a few seconds so that the software can capture data and project it onto the screen.

This examination is required before performing refractive surgery. 


Biometry enables the ophthalmologist to measure several parameters of the eye, including its length, so that the implant required for lens replacement can be studied.

This preoperative examination in preparation for cataract surgery only takes a few minutes. 

Ocular ultrasound

An ocular ultrasound involves examining the eye socket to allow the ophthalmologist to analyse the segment of the eye. The examination is performed using probes that project ultrasound to obtain echos.

The examination takes around fifteen minutes and is performed with the patient lying on their back. 


Pachymetry is defined as the measurement of the thickness of the cornea. This examination is performed without direct contact with the eye and only takes a few seconds. This examination is an alternative to topography, OCT and ultrasound.

It should be performed for patients presenting with glaucoma or eye strain but also before refractive surgery.
