The Palais Gallien Ophthalmology centre was founded in 1989. This ophthalmology practice in Bordeaux is a multidisciplinary centre treating all ophthalmological pathologies: cataract, glaucoma, refractive surgery as well as eyelid and orbital surgery.
Within the ophthalmology centre, a Retina core branch was set up in 1991. It undertakes examination and treatment of retinal, macular and vitreous pathologies. Since January 1st 2014 all our surgery is performed at the Nouvelle Clinique Bel-Air. We have five ophthalmologist doctors specialising in posterior segment pathologies of the eye, ensuring continuous reception and care of our patients. Thanks to a highly qualified staff and an efficient technology platform, the Rétine Gallien Practice ensures the care of numerous patients coming from all corners of South-Western France.
