Night Blindness Treatment in Cuba

Treatment for night blindness has been developed for over 20 years at the Centro Internacional de Retinosis Pigmentaria "Camilo Cienfuegos" in Havana.

Night blindness is a vision disorder that affects 1 in every 10,000 people. Night blindness, also known as retinitis pigmentosa, is the problem of seeing clearly at night or in dim light, and it can have many causes. Considering that it is more effective in stabilizing the disease, surgical intervention is very important for the treatment of night blindness.

For the treatment of night blindness (chicken black) in Cuba, the patient's vision rate report is first sent to Cuba. After examining the patient's medical document for night blindness, the experts at the Cuban Ministry of Health evaluate whether it can be treated in Cuba or not. If the approval is obtained as a result of the evaluation made by the experts and the patient accepts the treatment of night blindness (chicken black), he can go to Cuba.
