Introduction of IPD (International Patients Department) Services

In Noor Eye Hospital experienced subspecialists of ophthalmology perform different kinds of eye examinations and treat patients. This ophthalmology center offers a full range of services from pretreatment diagnostic and basic eye examinations, imaging and optometric examinations to advanced eye surgeries such as corneal transplantation.

The prospect of Noor Ophthalmology Complex is to make it possible for all patients to benefit from its unique and efficient ophthalmic services, as close as possible to where they live, to avoid frequent long commutes.The establishment of Noor Eye Hospital on Esfandiar Street in 2007 was the continuation of the project that began in 1993 and was expanded in 2000 by the development of Excimer Clinic, located on Babak Bahrami Street. Noor Eye Hospital is the first private subspecialty eye hospital in Iran. It has facilities like referral system, subspecialty consultation services, knowledgeable and highly experienced team of ophthalmologists, modern diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, and in a beautiful and peaceful environment offers a full range of ophthalmology services to patients.
