About the department

The department of ophthalmology at Academic Hospital DRK Berlin-Westend is engaged in treating and correcting various eye diseases. The qualified specialists provide inpatient and outpatient eye surgeries of different anatomic regions of the eye. The department uses microsurgical and minimally invasive operation methods, which enable minimal risk for patients and quick recovery. It is worth mentioning that the head physician of the department is a member of german and international ophthalmology societies, confirming the fact of following the latest guidelines and recommendations. The department is specialised in treating both children and adults.

Surgical treatment of eye diseases with returning and improving vision is the medical focus of the department. Doctors perform gentle surgeries on the retina, vitreous, lens, eyelids and other anatomical structures of the eye. In addition, experienced specialists provide treatment for cataracts, intraocular tumours, and metabolic and degenerative eye diseases.
