State of the Art

When doctors take their responsibilities seriously, they communicate openly and in detail with those who come to them for help. They create clarity by showing understanding of their patients' problems and insight into their concerns. The forthcoming treatment is approached in a spirit of partnership.

It is because we engage in dialogue within the profession on the nature of illnesses, the various ways they can be treated and the risks involved, that conditions are created for a comprehensive diagnosis and consistent quality control. Developments in media and communication have opened up new ways of making contacts and for the fruitful exchange of knowledge and information.
Out-patient surgery

Nowadays, most eye operations worldwide are carried out for out-patients. It is a common fallacy that an eye operation will necessarily impose major restrictions on the patient's lifestyle. On the contrary, modern operation methods make the rehabilitation period extremely short. Your lifestyle need not suffer significantly as a result.

Eye-drop anaesthesia

This form of anaesthetic, administered solely with eye-drops, eliminates pain and prepares the eye for the operation at the same time. General anaesthetics or injections are superfluous. Eye-drop anaesthesia are above all used for cataract operations but also for other short operations.

The eye-drop anaesthesia avoids all the risks and possible complications of an injection and is extremely reliable. Its particular advantage is that it makes an eye-patch unnecessary and you are able to see immediately after the operation.

No stitch surgery

In an eye operation, a surgical opening has to be made through the outer surface of the eye. Nowadays these openings are effected according to a valve principle and thus close of their own accord without stitches. Stitch-less operation techniques have a number of advantages as far as the visual functions are concerned and furthermore work in favour of very quick rehabilitation.

Multifocal lenses

A multifocal lens is an artificial lens with two focal points. Such lenses can be implanted to replace the natural lens, and make it possible to see well over short and long distances, thus rendering eyeglasses and contact lenses unnecessary.

Multifocal lenses were developed for the cataract operation and they are currently becoming more important as tools for counteracting eyesight deficiencies such as short-sightedness, long-sightedness and presbyopia.

Refractive surgery

All eye operations carried out to correct deficient vision come under the general heading "refractive surgery". The deficiencies concerned are short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.

Correction is achieved with artificial lenses, which are either implanted into the eye additionally or entirely replace the natural lens. A further example of refractive surgery is provided by operations which change the geometry of the cornea and use techniques involving incisions or laser treatment (LASIK, LASEK).
