Exterior, CODET Vision Institute

Established in 1986, CODET's array of clinical, patients services, educational programs, and research and development of new technologies has established its reputation as one of the top ophthalmology hospitals in Latin America. A staff of more than 60 physicians, surgeons, optometrists, anesthesiologists and support staff treat some 30,000 patients annually, including more than 3,000 eye surgeries.

CODET's staff is committed to excellence in all facets of vision care, with well-trained specialists using the most advanced techniques and state-of-the-art instrumentation. In addition to providing high-quality, clinical care for patients, CODET's top doctors have to date provided training to more than 80 ophthalmic physicians and surgeons from all over the world. CODET's surgeons actively participate in the investigation, development, and publication of ophthalmic innovations.

Toward exacting the most successful clinical outcomes, CODET deploys sophisticated diagnostic and surgical equipment, including two excimer lasers, an all-in-one femtosecond laser, two eye exam lanes, three topography units, two optical coherence tomography units (OCT), four cataract surgery systems and two vitroretinal surgery systems.
