Quisisana is the reference point for surgical ophthalmology in Ferrara.
Surgical ophthalmology is a branch of medicine focused on pathologies of the visual apparatus. The reference is to the eye and all its annexes. They range from the correction of visual defects to the treatment of related visual pathologies. It is one of the oldest disciplines of medicine, at the center of a constant process of evolution in terms of prevention, diagnosis and therapy.
At the Quisisana accredited private hospital it is possible to have access to a surgical clinic for various specialties, including surgical ophthalmology.
A complete eye examination involves different stages:
It is possible to book an eye visit in Ferrara online, using the appropriate form available on the website quisisanaafe.com. All you need to do is indicate your sensitive data, your doctor and a preference for the ophthalmologists present at the facility.
The progressive clouding of the lens is known as a cataract. The lens is nothing more than a transparent net placed behind the pupil which oxidizes over time. This makes it impossible for light to penetrate and, as a result, the quality of vision drops dramatically.
Prolonged observation of the patient is necessary, before being able to intervene, waiting for the occurrence of salient problems. The only possible solution is the surgical one. This consists in aspirating the opaque lens, making a micro incision. Everything is replaced with a prosthesis, tailor-made for each individual patient.
It is now possible to perform cataract surgery with a femtosecond laser. This entails great advantages in terms of safety and repetitiveness of the intervention, less trauma to the eyes and no need for a scalpel.
Quisisana stands as an excellent point of reference for those suffering from maculopathy and diabetic retinopathy in Ferrara. Inside the nursing home it is possible to undergo macular degeneration therapy with the Yellow Pascal Laser.
The traditional laser heats the macula, causing a scar that can cause a lowering of vision: it is therefore used only for lesions to the peripheral macula, precisely to avoid this risk. The micropulsed laser, based on the division of laser energy into numerous peaks separated by pauses, does not burn anything. Much less invasive, its results are visible after 12-36 months.
The surgical ophthalmology services within Quisisana, for a fee and not affiliated with the National Health System, are offered within an excellent facility, characterized by a high degree of selectivity in the choice of its specialists.
