The Professor Zagórski’s Eye Surgery Centres have been working since 1998. The first one was established in Nałęczów, and then the facilities in Rzeszów and Kraków were opened.
All Centres provide comfortable highly specialized diagnostic tests, medical consultations, outpatient and surgical treatment within the framework of one-day surgery. The facilities are equipped with modern operating suites and excellent equipment with which procedures are conducted at the highest world level.
The Professor Zagórski’s Eye Surgery Centres specialize in the treatment of cataract, glaucoma, retinal disease and dry eye. They also offer a full range of treatment of inflammation of the cornea and the surface of the eye, uveitis, strabismus, and eyelid surgery. They routinely use modern methods of surgical treatment, including:
- phacoemulsification of cataract using the latest types of multifocal lenses,
- vitrectomy - advanced operations of the retina and the vitreous body,
- antiglaucoma operations using implants and anti-metabolites,
- intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF preparations (Avastin, Eyle, Lucentis),
