Emergencies will be attended Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the headquarters of IOM (Ophthalmologic Institute of Majorca). Out of this time, you have at your disposal our 24h ward service, which is located at Clínica Rotger in Palma.
We are the most experienced ophthalmologist centre in the Balearics. Its been over twenty since we’ve been performing refractive surgery in order to correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbytia.
Each patient is unique and so is its diagnosis. We tailor each treatment to the real needs and lifestyle of each patient.
Our technological equipment is second to none in our area; we are committed to a rigorous screening and a human touch after care.
At the IOM we study each case and we fine-tune the best solution for your eyes.
There are two large groups of refractive surgery techniques:
When IOLs are implanted to correct presbyopia with the Eximer Laser the dominant eye is fully corrected for a distance vision and the non-dominant eye is under corrected in order to achieve a good close vision. As a result we will have a fine combined long-short distance vision.
If you are thinking about eye surgery to get rid of your glasses or contacts, here are some of the issues that you should know to tell the difference in between LASIK vs INTRALASIK and SURGICAL PLATFORMS.
The intralasik system provides more security, reliability and accuracy.
Lasik needs two-step, first of all a flap corneal tissue must be created and has to be folded back; the surgeon creates the flap with a hand held mechanical device using a surgical blade. Then laser is done in order to change the radius of curvature of the cornea.
This method has worked finely over many years, Lasik complications are extremely rare, and however the performance with the mechanical device is frequently the source of many reported complications.
The corneal flap is created with the precision of a laser (100 times more accurate than a blade) there is no other technology that can equal it in vision correction surgery. This allows more control during the procedure and permits customization of the corneal flap for every individual patient. This accuracy now allows treating many people who were dismissed candidates due to thin corneas.
Afterwards Femtosecond laser is done to change the radius of curvature of the cornea.
Seen below the difference in outcome:
Nowadays IOM is the only centre in the Balearic Islands with state-of-the-art Intralasik system.
