The TACIR Ophthalmology Clinic (Advanced Techniques in Implant-Refractive Surgery) is located in the Teknon Medical Center in Barcelona. We are a reference center in ophthalmology for our quality standards and for the use of the most advanced technologies. Our priority is to offer a personal treatment to each and every one of our patients.
There are basically two surgical techniques: laser correction (Lasik) or correction using ICL type collagen lenses.
Presbyopia appears when a muscle that allows the lens to change its shape and size stops working.
Eye health is very important because it is one of the senses that connects us to our environment and fills it with meaning.
Check here all the tests that are performed in our center. The latest technology for accurate diagnoses.
Eye fundus, graduation control, diabetics, macular degeneration, etc. Accurate follow-up is our priority.
Both myopia and farsightedness, and also astigmatism, are part of what are known as refractive errors. In a very simplified way, these defects cause that the images do not focus exactly on the retina, but that the approach is done well in front or behind it. The consequence is a blurred vision.
Presbyopia is the loss of accommodation-of being able to focus-of the crystalline lens.The eye focuses the images with the help of two lenses: the cornea and the crystalline lens. The cornea is a fixed lens that can not vary its shape or size.
It is called cataracts to the loss of transparency of the crystalline lens. Over the years, and especially after 45-50 years, the crystalline lens becomes more and more opaque naturally - while it hardens - and the entry of light is less and less
We call glaucoma to the disease that causes an increase in intraocular pressure, this pressure directly affects the structures of the optic nerve, which is the responsible for transmitting what we see to our brain. The consequence is a progressive loss of vision
The retina is a structure that is located in the back of the eye. It is right where the images of what we see are reflected. It is full of nerve cells that transform the light stimuli into nerve signals that are sent, through the optic nerve, to our brain who interpret them.
A problem in the tear ducts can produce either an obstruction that prevents the secretion of tears in a normal way or quite the opposite, an excess of secretion that causes continuous tearing of the eye. If you notice any of these symptoms, consult a specialist.
