About the department

The department of ophthalmology at MEOCLINIC Berlin provides a high level of medical services for patients with eye diseases. Local ophthalmologists use modern medical devices for visual acuities, such as a unique auto refractometer. With another ultra-modern OCT diagnostic technology, tissue can be displayed in two and three dimensions in the micrometre range. The department is led by an internationally known expert in eye surgery, especially retinal surgery, who was awarded numerous times for high achievements in work. The department was recognized with the TOP-focus award. The department combines the whole eye therapeutic range with surgical options. The team will be happy to advise prospective patients.

The department is primarily focused on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the cornea, both chambers of the eye, the vitreous body, the retina, the optic nerve, the orbit, the tear ducts, and the eyelids. The frequent reasons for a visit to the ophthalmologist also include ametropia, which is caused by a change in the eye's refractive power (refraction) (short- and long-sightedness, presbyopia astigmatism).
