About the department

The department of ophthalmology at Academic Hospital Bundeswehr Berlin is designed as an outpatient clinic for the whole spectrum of eye disorders. For the necessary examinations, modern equipment is used, such as a high-resolution, rotating special camera for measuring the cornea. Through consultations, the patients are advised on the surgical options for correcting vision defects with laser or lens implantation. The physicians attach particular importance to a critical risk assessment of the individually possible treatment alternatives. The short distances between departments and cooperation with other specialists ensure high quality, holistic approach and comprehensive medical care. University-level medicine, designed for the military, is available for everyone in the department. 

The team covers a wide range of ophthalmology, except for some types of eye surgery. The focus is on the field of diagnostics and military medical assessments. Refractive and glaucoma consultations, as well as in-depth interdisciplinary diagnostics, are provided.
