Ophthalmology and Ophthalmology Surgery

MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS, TESTS, TREATMENTS AND SURGERY

Clinical activities relevant to the Ophthalmology and Ophthalmology Surgery performed at Auxologico are fully covering all the needs related to the health and regular functioning of the human eye.

In all the locations of Auxologico, ophthalmological examinations and ophthalmic diagnostic tests can be carried out by leveraging modern and highly accurate medical instruments.

There are several specialist centers for the treatment of specific pathologies: from the Glaucoma Center to the Eye Pediatric Ophthalmology Center, from the Neuro-Ophthalmology and Ocular Electrophysiology to the hypovision.

The surgical activity involving all eye pathologies (cataract, retina, glaucoma, cornea) is carried out at Auxologico Capitanio Hospital.

In addition to the preparation and expertise of the medical staff as well as the cutting-edge instrumentation, the ophthalmologists of Auxologico pay the utmost attention to the patient dedicating the right time to the care of patients.

The focus on symptoms and visual problems, accurate eye examinations and the necessary thorough eye tests, the consultation with colleagues of the team as for the most complex cases and important decisions, the scrupolous and accurate attitude of the medical staff in the operating theatre are all key factors. All this requires the necessary time and effort that ophthalmologists of Auxologico always ensure to patients.

        RESEARCH TOPICS

        • Evaluation of vascular, structural and functional retina and choroid aspects in vascular and degenerative pathologies of the Central Nervous System by SD-OCT, electrophysiological tests and non-conventional vascular imaging methods; identification of reproducible biomarkers able to favour early diagnosis and differential diagnosis of these pathologies.
