Advanced Technology and Impeccable Facilities

CODET Vision Institute is a beautifully designed, impeccably maintained 25,000-square-foot facility filled with advanced technology — some of which was invented by our doctors (for example, All-Laser-LASIK in 1995 by Dr. Arturo Chayet). 

Our leading clinical research department gives us constant early access to new and emerging technology; this also allows us to offer exclusive ophthalmologic solutions not yet available in the United States due to the FDA’s long regulatory approval process.

Bill Mulkins, from Brooklyn, New York, traveled to CODET in Tijuana, Mexico to get Cataract Surgery. The procedure changed his life!
