The Barraquer Eye Centre is a private eye clinic in Spain, founded in 1941. The centre is devoted to research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of ocular diseases, offering assistance to patients from all over the world. Professor Joaqun Barraquer, surgeon and manager, structured his team of 30 ophthalmologists in different specialities, covering all of the ophthalmology fields.
The specialist ophthalmologist team in Barcelona treats the following conditions, and offers the following types of eye surgery:
Lasik: The Refractive Surgery department of Clinica Barraquer offers the latest technology for the best results and minimises risk. The department has recently incorporated laser intralase for lifting the corneal flap.
Cataract: A new model of bifocal or multifocal intraocular lenses is big news in outpatient surgery, enabling patients to return home within hours of being treated.
Glaucoma: The latest diagnostic equipment allows detailed tracking of patients, before starting with drug treatments, laser or conventional surgery.
Macular Degeneration associated with age: Lucentis intraocular injections have once again revolutionized the treatment and prognosis of patients with Macular Degeneration associated with age.
The Centre has a permanent ophthalmologic emergency service that works 24 hours a day, and has an on-call team of ophthalmologists and nurses. To support the Ophthalmology team, the Centre has physicians who are specialised in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology, Diabetology, ENT, Dentistry, Biology and Clinical Analysis.
