Dr. Elvira Llevat is responsible of this Unit. In the field of glaucoma, we have created the first Unit of Ocular Hemodynamics in Spain to improve the diagnosis and especially focused on the prevention of this disease. We have equipped this Unit with modern technology to reveal glaucomatous changes related to other systemic diseases such as diabetes, abnormal blood pressure or ischemic neuropathy that can cause irreversible vision loss.
In the diagnostic section, we count on the new analysis systems of nerve fibers by polarimetry (GDx) and the CT scan analysis of ganglion cells in the macula, which establish the early detection of glaucomatous process.
For the treatment of glaucoma, we have the technology for non-perforating interventions that have proven highly effective and allowing a much faster recovery. This technology is based upon an Erbium-YAG laser to further optimize the results. We are pioneers in this therapy and have published about it internationally.
