Clínica Baviera arrived in Malaga in 2001 (C/Cerrojo s/n) to meet the needs of the people of Malaga and improve their visual quality. From the beginning, the company focused all its efforts on offering the best quality and the most innovative treatments. After 20 years of work and effort, Clínica Baviera Málaga has established itself as a benchmark in the city and the province, so much so that it has recently opened a center in Fuengirola (Pº Jesús Santos Rein, 4).

The Clinic centers in Baviera Málaga have a human team of 32 people, among which their medical team stands out, made up of 8 ophthalmologists who in these years have treated more than 40,000 patients. The clinics have different specialized units to respond to the most frequent visual problems; Refractive Surgery Unit, Presbyopia and Cataract Unit, Cornea Unit, Retina Unit and Ocular Plastic Surgery Unit.

Such as visual health campaigns to raise awareness of visual pathologies, collecting glasses for developing countries or free visual check-ups for people from vulnerable groups.

Most frequent visual problems in Andalusia

According to the latest Vision Study in Spain carried out by Clínica Baviera, around 78% of Andalusians over 18 years of age suffer from some visual defect, a figure very similar to the national average which is 80%.


The study indicates that presbyopia or eyestrain is the most common visual problem among Andalusians with 42.2% affected. Presbyopia is directly related to age and usually begins to appear from the age of 40; in fact, 60.4% of Andalusians interviewed over 40 years of age suffer from it.

Myopia is in second place in the classification of the most common visual disorders with 37.5% of Andalusians affected. Above all, it is recorded in young people between 18 and 24 years old and those who suffer from it have an average of two diopters.

In third place is astigmatism, developed by 35.5% of the Andalusians participating in the study and whose prevalence is most common in people between 18 and 24 years old. In this case, the average diopter is one.


At the same time, there are other vision problems such as farsightedness, cataracts or retinal diseases that, although they have a lower development rate among the population, are also quite common.

This study has also analyzed the eye health habits of the population, which shows that more than 38.7% of Andalusians do not check their eyesight with the recommended frequency (at least once every two years), while a 61.3% if they check their vision regularly.
