Equipment and technology
The clinic has the best ophthalmologic surgery room in the city
Where we exclusively perform eye surgery to ensure asepsis of the facilities.
Modern rooms with specially coated Swedish manufacturing, which prevents the adherence of the bacteria to their walls or floors thus improving sterility and minimizing the risk of infections.
The creation of the Peñaranda Ophthalmic Clinic dates back to the year 1964
When Dr. Carlos Luís Peñaranda P. began his work as an ophthalmologist in the city of Cúcuta. Dr. Peñaranda was the third disciple of Dr. José Ignacio Barraquer in Colombia and he developed a brilliant professional work that lasted for 22 years during which he laid the foundations for the creation of an institution dedicated exclusively to the care of the eyes.
As for cataract surgery, we performed ultrasound surgery since 2000
With extensive experience in this technique. This year we updated the ultrasound equipment by purchasing an Infiniti model from the Alcon house. Its main feature is that it has a lateral movement of the ultrasonic tip (Ozil ®) which makes it much more efficient and safe. With this we have taken a step further in the pursuit of excellence for the benefit of our patients.
For the past 3 years we have the Excímer German laser brand Schwind
It is our intention to remain up to date with the ophthalmological advances to offer our patients the best quality of care in Ophthalmology and to remain as the best institution for the eye care of the North of Santander, proudly cucuteña.
