We are the combination of four hospitals: the General Hospital, the Children’s Hospital, the Women’s Hospital and the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital. We are part of the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus: a world-leading health park where healthcare plays a crucial role.
Below we will list the departments and units that form part of Vall d’Hebron Hospital and the main diseases that we treat. We will also make recommendations based on advice backed up by scientific evidence that has been shown to be effective in guaranteeing well-being and quality of life.
We will guide you from your first visit to the centre, allowing you to find all the departments and make the most of our facilities. Whatever the reason for your visit, we will explain how to get about the hospital.
This Section treats conditions affecting the optic nerve and Strabismus, a loss of ocular alignment.
This Section treats conditions affecting the optic nerve, whether secondary to intracranial hypertension, inflammatory/demyelinating, ischemic, infiltration-related (such as sarcoidosis), compressive, autoimmune, due to nutritional/toxic deficits, paraneoplastic or genetic, those affecting the visual field due to involvement of the visual pathway, whether cranial tumours, stroke, traffic accidents, infections (meningitis, encephalitis…) and those affecting pupil shape, size or reactivity.
In short, all those systemic or neurological entities that can cause visual dysfunction.
It is a multidisciplinary sub-specialty in which we collaborate with other hospital services, such as Internal Medicine, Neurosurgery or Neurology. We work particularly closely with the Neurology department of the Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia (Cemcat).
Strabismus is a loss of ocular alignment.
In our Department, we offer treatment by means of glasses, with or without prism, botulinum toxin or surgery of the extraocular muscles.
We treat strabismus in patients who have presented it since childhood (whether they have been treated previously or not), as well as in patients who present it in an acute way due to paralysis, restrictions (severe myopia, thyroid pathology, orbital trauma, tumours), age-related strabismus (sagging eye) and sensory strabismus (secondary to visual deficit).
The main reason for treatment is diplopia (double vision), improving eye mobility or compensatory torticollis and also for aesthetic reasons.
