The Paco Simó Ophthalmological Veterinary Institute collaborates with Böthmen Pharma

The Ophthalmological Veterinary Institute of Barcelona (IVO), directed by Paco Simó, is an international center of reference entirely dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ocular afflictions in companion animals.

Paco Simó has collaborated in the supervision of the product formulas offered in the ophthalmological line developed by Böthmen Pharma under the brand name Dr.Vet.

Since 1990, his work has been focused on the microsurgery of the anterior segment of the eye, as the first veterinarian in Catalonia to perform a cataract surgery by phacoemulsification and also the first to insert an intraocular lens in a dog.

Currently, the IVO is the only center in Spain that has the technology and experience required to perform retinal detachment surgeries in cats and dogs.
