Department of Ophthalmology

Our patient care covers the entire range of ophthalmology, microsurgery and comprehensive treatment of ophthalmic emergencies. We offer up-to-date examination techniques and therapeutic procedures.

New diagnostic equipment allows an accurate assessment of complicated eye diseases. In the operation room, we are using minimally invasive surgical techniques which lead to a faster recovery after surgery.

At our department we have qualified consultants in all fields of ophthalmological diseases:

  • Retina and vitreous disorders
  • Glaucoma
  • Lacrimal diseases
  • Pediatric ophthalmology / Strabismus / Neuroopthalmology
  • Cornea
  • Refractive surgery
  • Oculoplastics
  • Intraocular tumors
  • Cataract surgery
  • LowVision / contact lenses

The research areas of our department include the investigation of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), new opthalmological imaging methods, new intraocular pressure measurement methods, as well as new surgical procedures in the field of retina and glaucoma.

Our main focus is optimal eye care of our patients in this highly developed academic institution.
