About the department

The department of ophthalmology and neuro-ophthalmology at Fedorov Vision Restoration Clinic Berlin deals with diagnosing and treating vision loss due to damage to the optic nerve and various forms of retinal dystrophy. The medical team is exceptional in the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa. The department is known worldwide thanks to Fedorov's rehabilitation therapy, which combines the knowledge of ophthalmology and neurology, and gives fantastic results with numerous visual dysfunctions at different stages. With this innovative method of treatment, in many cases, it is possible to improve vision using electrical stimulation significantly. Vision is restored by non-invasive electrical stimulation of retinal cells and optic nerve fibres. For the patient, the procedure takes several hours and is entirely painless. After therapy, patients are offered brain training and increased overall activity of the visual system to consolidate the result.

The department's ophthalmologists specialise in treating pathologies such as optic neuritis, traumatic injuries and ischemia of the optic nerve, and visual impairment after a tumour. In addition, the department presents all types of modern diagnostics of the visual system, including optical coherence tomography and electrophysiological tests. The department specialists help visually impaired people better perceive the world and return to fulfilling lives. The treatment is adapted to the patient's individual needs, so the best result is always achieved.
