"La clinique de l'œil Casablanca" was the first ophthalmic clinic in Morocco to perform refractive surgery

Refractive surgery includes interventions intended to correct ametropia (visual defect), using a medical device, such as laser or implant, in order to offer the patient the possibility to see without his glasses or contact lenses.

This intervention is provided by Dr. Chahbi Mohammed and his team of specialized ophthalmologists.
