Modern ophthalmology (eye medicine) is a high-tech specialism that requires continual further training and investment on the part of doctors.
Regular check-ups with an ophthalmologist help diagnose and treat diseases at an early stage that can otherwise cause serious complications, including blindness.
Our eye clinic in Zurich offers a wide range of comprehensive diagnosis and treatment options.
This is surgery that corrects sight problems such as myopia, astigmatism, hypermetropia and presbyopia.
Following a careful pre-operative evaluation, we decide what kind of procedure is most appropriate: on the cornea (excimer laser) or on the lens (such as cataract operations, which insert a special intraocular lens).
Corneal topography is a non-invasive examination that is carried out as part of a pre-operative assessment for refractive surgery using an excimer laser.
It can help identify keratoconus early on and enables it to be treated on an outpatient basis using cross-linking surgery.
Eye surgery is carried out on an outpatient basis and covers the following conditions:
sight problems, keratoconus, cataracts, glaucoma, maculopathy and retinal problems.
Various types of laser treatment can correct sight problems and treat acute glaucoma, ocular hypertension and even retinal holes.
