ZIHLMANN, Karina Franco. The look that can see further: psychoanalytic work about the loss of vision in the context of general hospital. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.1, pp. 105-114. ISSN 2359-0769.

The aim of this article was to transmit the experience of a psychological service (Lacanian psychoanalytic approach) in a general hospital of high complexity of São Paulo city- Brazil - with patients with eye problems. We also used a narrative construction to illustrate specific clinical issues. Psychoanalyst's work in hospital settings presents distincts characteristics of the traditional visual rehabilitation work. It also requires clinical, epistemological and Ethical posture to address properly situations in which we observe the emergence of great distress for both the patient and multidisciplinary health team. It was observed a link between the construction of psychological service work (establishment of transference in the health team) with the health team posture, especially when they are able to understand patient's with gradual or abrupt vision loss need for psychological care, referring appropriate multidisciplinary approach. Accordingly this patient care model can embrace the complexity to ensure individual's appropriated treatment, beyond biomedical field.

Palavras-chave : health psychology; lacanian psychoanalysis; ophthalmology; interdisciplinarity; loss of vision.
