The Ophthalmology Department at IASO Thessalias specializes in providing diagnostic and treatment services for ophthalmologic conditions to patients of all ages.
We have set up a dedicated operating room intended only for eye surgery, in order to eliminate the risk of cross-infection, equipped with the latest surgical apparatus including surgical microscopes, ultrasound apparatus, phacoemulsification devices, that make surgery faster and more reliable.
Specifically, for the treatment of cataract:
Cataract is treated using the advanced and safe method of phacoemulsification. State-of-the-art microscopes and high accuracy ultrasound apparatus are used for eye surgery. Phacoemulsification has replaced the old-fashion notion that the cataract had to be mature in order to undergo cataract operation. The patient can return home or even resume their daily activities in a matter of hours.
A refurbished short-term ward is also available to patients if they need to remain at the Clinic for a few more hours.
