Ambulatory Services

In order to reduce hospital stay you may have all necessary diagnostics and a pre-surgery consultation on anesthesia on an outpatient basis a few days before your operation and, then, come to the clinic on the day of your surgery.

Presently, many outpatient eye operations are performed in our clinic. New surgical techniques allow reducing duration of surgery significantly and make it possible for the patient to recover in a few hours and go home the same day.
