Ophthalmological examination

Even if you do not have any particular vision problems, it is recommended that you have an eye examination every 2 to 3 years to assess your visual acuity and general health.

Treatment of dry eye

Dry eye is a particularly common ophthalmological condition that causes significant discomfort and sometimes leads to corneal complications or chronic eye irritation.

Management of glaucoma

A chronic eye disease, glaucoma affects 1 to 2% of the population over the age of 40 and about 10% over the age of 70. It is also the second leading cause of blindness in Europe, after AMD.

Eye prosthesis

The aim of this ocular prosthesis is to restore a natural appearance to the eye and to give the patient a harmonious look and face.

Treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

AMD is the most common cause of severe vision decline in the Western world, but there are various ways to slow the progression of the disease.

Why consult an ophthalmologist?

Ophthalmologists are specialists in diseases and disorders that can affect the eyes and the quality of vision.

It is important to have your child's eyesight checked regularly from an early age; check-ups should be carried out from the age of 6 months.

It is also advisable to consult an ophthalmologist as soon as possible in the event of irregular blinking, irritated eyes, headaches, visual defects or strong sensitivity to light.

In addition, some diseases affect the integrity and function of the eye. These include, for example:

  • diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • certain rheumatic diseases
  • certain infectious diseases
  • or neurological diseases.

Therefore, if you suffer from any of these diseases, it is important to have regular check-ups with your ophthalmologist.

What does an ophthalmological consultation in Turó Park Medical Clinic consist of?

During your first visit, your ophthalmologist will need to gain an understanding of your medical history, so the doctor will conduct a short interview to find out about your personal and family background.

Then, they will conduct a clinical examination. This may include a fundus examination, a thorough check of the ocular media, an intraocular pressure test or vision tests. If necessary, he may also prescribe additional examinations or perform surgical procedures such as eyelid surgery or cataract surgery, among others.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about ophthalmology

Orthoptist, Optometrist or Ophthalmologist?

Orthoptists will often work collaboratively with Ophthalmologists to investigate and manage diseases of the eyes, with Orthoptists specialising in non-surgical treatment. While Ophthalmologists, as medical doctors, are able to perform complex surgery prescribe a wider range of medicines.

When to schedule a first visit to the ophthalmologist?

It is best to make a first visit before the age of 4, a visit every 2 years or so and to consult at the age of 10, as this is the age when eyesight matures. This will allow you to avoid taking risks and to anticipate vision problems that can occur at an early age as well as at an advanced age.

What to eat for good eyesight?

Rich in Omega 3, fatty fish such as tuna, salmon, herring or sardines (steamed or grilled) help to maintain the membranes of nerve cells, including those of the retina, and thus prevent the appearance of age-related eye diseases.
