In this article, we’re diving into the fascinating story of two groundbreaking creations that originated in Tijuana. The Caesar Salad, globally renowned for its delicious taste, and the ophthalmological procedure, All-Laser-LASIK, which has revolutionized the way we see the world, share more than just their birthplace: the daring spirit and ingenuity of Tijuana’s talent.
The Caesar Salad, a classic dish that has conquered taste buds worldwide, was created in Tijuana in 1924 by the Italian chef César Cardini at the Caesars Restaurant. The original recipe combined simple yet flavorful ingredients, resulting in a delicious masterpiece. Today, this salad stands as an icon of gastronomy that we all enjoy.
Not far from the place where the Caesar Salad was born, in 1995, Dr. Arturo Chayet, founder and visionary ophthalmologist of CODET Vision Institute, was shaping an equally impressive innovation in the field of ophthalmology: All-Laser-LASIK. This innovation changed the paradigm of ophthalmology by introducing a revolutionary technique to correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism without the need for a scalpel, becoming the safest and most precise surgery for vision correction. Today, All-Laser-LASIK is recognized as the global standard in laser vision correction surgery.
The connection between these two Tijuana achievements lies in the art of blending essential elements precisely. Just as the Caesar Salad requires the perfect harmony of its ingredients to create its characteristic flavor, All-Laser-LASIK involves the perfect synchronization of cutting-edge technology and expert medical skills to achieve outstanding visual results.
In a gesture of celebration, CODET Vision Institute pays tribute to these magnificent creations by offering a special discount of $200 USD per eye on most surgeries throughout the month of September.
