Department of ophthalmology

The department of ophthalmology at Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch was founded in 1951. The founder, Professor Georg Gunther, developed the first device in the GDR for objective visual acuity determination and was a founding member of the European Ophthalmic Pathology Society (EOPS). Throughout the time of the existence of the department, it established its reputation as a research facility. The focus is on findings on new methods in diagnostics and therapy and their application for the benefit of patients. The structure of the department includes eleven modern rooms and 21 beds, with around 2,000 patients with all kinds of eye diseases treated every year. In 2017, two high-precision femtosecond lasers were introduced. Surgery on cataracts and corrections for astigmatism are available thanks to this technology.

Conservative and surgical interventions provided help to treat poor eyesight, tumours, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and many other eye diseases. The department covers the full spectrum of ophthalmological medical care.
