The day surgery unit of the Department of Ophthalmology is a provider of a wide range of specialized ophthalmological services for paediatric and adult patients within the area of the wellbeing services county of Southwest Finland.

Most of our surgery focuses on operations on the retina, cornea, tear ducts and eye lids. Other common procedures are cataract surgery and surgery to correct for squinting (strabismus surgery) and high eye pressure (glaucoma surgery).

Day surgery is surgical treatment that has been planned in advance. The patient is registered in the hospital and discharged on the same day. Depending on the type of intervention and the referral, the patient may either need a visit for preparatory examinations or arrive directly from home for the procedure.
