Outstanding Care for Cataracts

Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most commonly performed surgeries in the world. New laser technologies have advanced the procedure even further, making it safer and more effective and making outcomes more predictable. Laser technology improves precision levels during several key steps of cataract surgery.

CODET Vision Institute surgeons are among the most highly qualified globally, using the most advanced lasers to perform cataract refractive surgery and deliver optimum results. All laser cataract surgeries at CODET are customized to meet the patient’s unique visual needs, resulting in optimal visual outcomes.

Leading the World in All-Laser-LASIK


LASIK has become the most popular refractive eye surgery technique in the world and, in 1995, we improved upon it with the introduction of All-Laser-LASIK, a blade-free alternative. In fact, All-Laser-LASIK was invented by Dr. Arturo Chayet, our Medical Director, and is now the worldwide gold standard in laser vision correction. CODET has more than 35 years of experience with this technology and Dr. Chayet has performed the most IntraLASIK procedures in the world.
