In theory, most people undergo at least one ophthalmologic exam in their life to check their visual acuity whether in childhood, to search for some refractive error, such as myopia or astigmatism, or in the 40-45 age range, due to complaints of tired sight (presbyopia).

However, this specialist's work goes far beyond it and includes clinical or surgical management of several eye diseases, some of which are very important because they are among the main causes of blindness, such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinopathies. By examining the back of the eye during the ophthalmologic consultation, it is also possible to detect signs of systemic diseases.

DaVita Serviços Médicos' Units have ophthalmologists qualified to manage any such diseases.
