Marta García Fernández – Intrastomal rings + ICL phakic lens
I have known the Instituto de Oftalmología Avanzada for ten years now and I owe them the fact of being able to continue with my studies and I can vouch they quality, both from a professional and human perspective.
I started to loose vision in a relatively short period of time and with my prescription glasses I couldn't see clear images. I went to the Instituto de Oftalmología Avanzada and I was diagnosed a keratoconus in both eyes.
There, I was told that with my problem the vision I would have with glasses would be – and was being- poor and that for the time being the best solution was to year contact lenses, although it could be that after a while me eye wouldn't tolerate them any more.
This happened six years later. My left eye stopped tolerating the contact lens and I had to undergo an operation that consisted in placing intracorneal rings. The operation conducted by Dr. Poyales was a success. When the cornea was stabilised two years later, he placed the intraocular lens. I used to see 30% with me lift eye and now I can see 95%. For the time being, I can still year the contact lens in my right eye and my vision is of almost 95%.
In addition to these problems, throughout these years I had a slight retina detachment that they manage to detect in time, as well as a vitreous detachment early for my age.
As I already mentioned, the fact of being able to continue studying and achieve doctoral studies has been thanks to the technical and professional skills of the team working at Instituto de Oftalmología Avanzada. That is why, from here, I would like to thank their task, their interest in me as a person and their always kind and humane treatment.
