Hospital description

The Instituto Regional de Ophthalmologia is the most important Ophthalmology center in Northern Peru. IRO covers all areas of Ophthalmology including cataracts, strabismus, plastic surgery, neuro ophthalmology, glaucoma and pediatric ophthalmology. The center also receives patients suffering eye complications from AIDS.

The center has around 100 staff including 14 specialists and 12 interns. More than 67,000 patients are attended to each year. Patients with complex cases are referred here from across Northern Peru. As a state run institute most of the patients have very limited resources.

The institute moved to their new 5 floor building in early 2012. They are a partner organisation of Orbis International who have provided them with a great detail of training and equipment in recent years, enabling the institute to offer the high quality services it provides today.
