Wet macular degeneration is a chronic eye disease that causes vision loss in the center of the field of vision. Treatment aims to correct this before permanent damage to the patient's vision occurs.
Cataracts are cloudy patches in the lens of the eye that are common as a result of aging. Cataract removal surgery is recommended for patients who experience impairment to vision and are sensitive to light as a result of the cataract. The surgery involves the removal of the natural lens and it is most commonly replaced with a synthetic lens.
Patients can usually fly soon after cataract surgery, but should take precautions to avoid dryness in the eye.
Retina detachment occurs when the retina becomes separated from its surrounding tissue. When this occurs, it is important that it is repaired, as the retina cannot function correctly in this condition, and leaving it untreated can result in the permanent loss of vision.
The length of stay depends on the treatment, however any treatment involving gas bubbles in the eye will prevent patients from being suitable for flying until the bubble has gone.

Codet and the staff are great. They take care of you from the beginning to the end and even after for the follow ups. This is a great company to get a consultation and surgery.
Best customer service from reception up to your surgery. Every last detail will be remembered. Surgery went perfectly. Painless. Doctor works with assistants and take care of you the entire time. Worth every penny.
Just had lazer surgery and I couldn’t be happier! CODET center is amazing, the doctors and staff are super efficient, nice and professional. I’ve already recommended family and friends to go there.
For those of you traveling to CODET from afar...We stayed at Hotel Lucerna which is only 5 minutes away. Super convenient, nice, good food, good service.
Amazing and warm staff. Best price. Doesn't get more professional than Dr. Chayet. I live in San Diego and it was worth the trip 100%
Great and amicable service with a clean environment and very informative lobby. I was able to learn more about my eye problems then with a regular eye doctor. Going to get my surgery here soon and very exciting for the fast progress!
