About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department provides the highest possible care and offers the full range of services in the branch of modern ophthalmology. For an optimal patient care, together with the first aid and emergency center, numerous operating rooms with modern devices (starting with the microscope to the high quality lasers) are offered.

Stationary division offers 32 beds available. The private interdisciplinary division receives private patients by appointment. The team of doctors, health care professionals and maintenance personnel work round-the-clock to ensure that patients could count on them at any time.

In 2014, with the consent of 105 donors, altogether 208 eye corneas have been obtained. 131 of them were transplanted in the Department of Phthalmology at the Hospital in Cologne-Mehrheim and 34 of them were transferred to other Departments.

The Department offers its patients the diagnosis and treatment opportunities in all the fields of the modern ophthalmology:

  • Cataract surgery (opacity of lens cataract)
  • Diagnosis and glaucoma surgery (green star)
  • Vitreoretinal surgery (surgery on the retina)
  • Refractive surgery (vision laser correction by Lasik method, PRK photorefractive keratectomy, intraocular lens)
  • Intravitreal injections (macula disease)
  • Keratoplasty and prostheses (cornea transplantation)
  • Eye burns treatment
  • Laser treatment of retina diseases
  • Laser treatment of secondary cataract (posterior capsule opacity)
  • Intraocular tumor surgery (e.g., choroidal melanoma)
  • Operations on eyelids (in case of tumor, eyelid deformation, plastic correction)
  • Eye socket surgery
  • Orthoptic center & heterotropy surgery
