Range of medical services

The most common operation is the removal of a clouded lens (cataract) through phacoemulsification and the implantation of a lens into the posterior eye chamber. During this surgery, which can also be carried out as an outpatient treatment, we use state-of-the-art foldable intraocular lens implants (IOL), for example yellow blue blocker lenses and aberration correcting intraocular lenses. Using foldable IOL the size of the ‘cataract incision’ is reduced by half compared with that using non-foldable IOL.

Furthermore operations for glaucoma, retinal detachment, strabismus, as well as eyelid operations and others are performed. Our conservative range of services in the inpatient section includes the complete modern therapeutic range. We have a medical solid-state laser to treat retinal diseases, a YAG laser which is used, for example, to remove a secondary cataract, a laser for photodynamic therapy (for treatment of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD)) and an endolaser in the operating theatre.

In our examination rooms on the 1st floor and basement level we carry out, among others, electrophysiological, angiographic, orthoptic and ultrasonic examinations.

Our medical care services can be organised into the following core areas:

Surgical services

  • Cataract surgery (Small Incision Technique) with implantation of mainly foldable posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOL)
  • Combined cataract-glaucoma surgery with implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL)
  • Cataract surgery with implantation of foldable multifocal posterior chamber lenses (MIOL) which enables the patient to be almost independent of glasses.
  • Secondary implantation of a posterior chamber lens (IOL)
  • Exchange of posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOL)
  • Glaucoma surgery including deep sclerectomy and trabeculectomy according to HARMS
  • Discision of secondary cataract (surgical) and discision of secondary cataract (YAG laser)
  • Anterior chamber puncture and irrigation
  • Corneal transplantations
  • Strabismus surgery
  • Lacrimal duct surgery, lacrimal duct surgery in children
  • Lacrimal duct probing
  • Operative repair of retinal detachment
  • Vitreous body surgery
  • Injections into the vitreous body (e.g. triamcinolone)
  • Treatment of perforated injuries of the bulb (first treatment, revision)
  • Removal of intraocular foreign bodies
