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.
Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty or an eye lift, is a surgery performed to remove bagginess and puffiness from lower eyelids, and droopiness from upper eyelids. It is commonly performed as a cosmetic procedure, but may also be necessary for patients who have obstructed vision due to drooping upper lids. The doctor will usually make a small incision in the upper eyelid or beneath the lower eyelid, in order to remove excess skin and/or fat from the area.
Patients may need a follow up appointment to check progress or get stitches removed.
The 3 most popular procedures performed at CODET Vision Institute are LASIK laser eye surgery, cataract surgery, and PRK laser eye surgery.
Other procedures performed include, eyelid surgery, pterygium surgery, IOL implantation, vitrectomy, corneal crosslinking, cornea transplant, wet macular degeneration (AMD) treatment, and glaucoma treatment.

Hace aproximadamente 4 anos me habian operado mi ojo derecho en una Clinica de Tijuana, desde que sali de la operacion mi vision no estaba bien, seguia teniendo algo de problema con mi vision, y entonces cuando fui a revision de la operacion me dijo el Dr que necesitaba anteojos para poder mejor, y asi lo hice me prescribio unos anteojos los cuales los compre en su clinica, al pasar el tiempo empeze a tener nuevamente problemas con mi vision.
Fue entonces que investigue en el internet y Dios puso en mi busqueda al Dr. Chayet, investigue su carrera y me quede maravillada de la gran eminencia, en conocimiento y en su enorme valor espiritual, ya que el adonado a la humanidad descubrimientos en cuanto el Laser (El Dr. CHAYET ES EL PIONERO EN LA TECNICA DE OPERAR LOS OJOS CON RAYOS LASER)
Y bien me puse en contacto con la Clinica y todo su personal es muy amable, eficiente y atentos, se siente uno ttanquilo confiado ya que en la consulta que tuve con el Dr Chayet el me dio toda la informacion respecto a mi caso y me dijo que es lo que yo podia esperar de resultado de la operacion me hablo con sinceridad y me dijo te pusieron un lente patito, no es de buena calidad y ni es el que necesitabas, voy a tratar de quitarlo y ponerte un lente multifocal, sino veo que no es posible llevarlo a cabo por el tiempo que tienes con ese lente , entonces no te cobro lo de la operacioN.
Llego el dia de la operacion, y para mi fue un milagro lo que hizo el Dr Chayet desde que sali de la operacion vi como nunca habia podido hacerlo desde hace muchos anos, me devolvio algo muy importante como es la vision de mi ojo derecho, y no hubo necesidad de prescribirme lentes, por lo tanto quede fascinada.
Y en cuanto fui a la primera revision, les pregunte cuanto tiempo tenia que esperar para que me interviniera mi ojo izquierdo que ya tambien presentaba problemas en mi vision, me dijeron qne cuanto Ud se sienta lista, y mi respuesta fue por favor programen mi cita para la operacion, al mes me opero el Dr Chayet mi ojo izquierdo, y cuando fui a revision me dijo necesitamos hacer una limpieza con rayo Laser y le pregunte cuanto va a ser por esa limpieza y me dijo nada, ya esta cubierto con lo que pagastes.
Recomiendo ampliamente al Dr CHAYET y a todo su equipo,.
En este momento, que estoy escribiendo este comentario, me comento mi amiga Ruby que su Mami tiene carnosidad en un ojo, inmediatamente saque mi cel y llame para preguntar que costo tiene esa intervencion asi como que dia puede tener su cita, y con gusto lo voy a seguir recomendando a todas las personas que necesiten una operacion en sus ojos. Dios bendiga al Dr Chayet.
I had LASIK surgery a few days ago and it was an amazing experience with CODET. It is a top notch institution, very professional, and with great customer service. I was in and out within 1.5 hours of arriving. Highly recommended!!
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%
