Refractive Surgery

It is intended for those who cannot live a normal life without the use of glasses or contact lenses. Cannot be considered a cosmetic surgery, but rather a possibility of improving the quality of life and, even more importantly, of improving the quality of vision, since spectacle lens, especially the graduated ones, cause optical aberrations.

Refractive surgery aims to provide people who are dependent on the use of optical correction (glasses or contact lens) the possibility of having a normal life without the use of these prostheses. The surgery helps to reduce the existing ametropia (myopia, astigmatism or hyperopia), so that the patient can become independent of the use of correction with glasses or contact lens.

AOS DOENTES DO IMO

Em conjunto com todos os Portugueses, estamos comprometidos em vencer o surto de coronavírus (COVID-19), sendo a prevenção e a segurança, a nossa parte nesta missão.

Por isso, e seguindo as determinações dos peritos e das entidades governamentais, vamos reduzir ao mínimo a circulação de doentes nas instalações do IMO.

O seguimento dos nossos doentes com patologia urgente será garantido, mas para bem de todos, teremos de o fazer de forma diferente.

Assim, a partir de 16/03/2020, apenas atenderemos casos urgentes e sempre com atendimento médico telefónico prévio.
