Our field of action


Conditions treated and cured in this ward


We perform surgical and parasurgical procedures:

  • Eyelids and adnexa diseases, strabismus
  • Cataract surgery (also with positioning of toric intraocular lenses for major astigmatism or multifocal lenses for simultaneous treatment of presbyopia)
  • Glaucoma surgery
  • Vitroretinal surgery (Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, complicated retinal detachment, epiretinal membrane surgery, diabetic retinopathy, etc.)
  • Corneal surgery (Penetrating and lamellar keratoplasty, endokeratoplasty, reduction of major astigmatism)
  • Eye surface and corneal limbus surgery (autologous and homologous conjunctival grafts, amniotic membrane grafts)
  • Corneal and intraocular refractive surgery (positioning of refractive lenses -IOL premium)
  • Argon laser treatments for retinal diseases (diabetic retinopathy, retinal rupture, vein occlusion, etc.)
  • Yag laser treatment (secondary cataract, glaucoma)

Strong point of our ophtalmology unit


  • The unit is equipped with an excimer laser to treat refractive errors, such as hypermetropia, astigmatism and miopy. It can also treat pathological cornea to restore transparency and sight. Over the years we developed a procedure permitting personalized treatment of cornea (custom ablation). Our unit was first in Italy to operate with the methodology of cross-linking, involving the use of vitamin B2 and low pressure ultraviolet rays for progressive keratoconus and corneal ectasia.
  • Minimally invasive surgery for retinal diseases (retinal detachment, macular hole, epiretinal membrane,etc.)
