The Department of Ophthalmology at the Klinikum Oberberg in Gummersbach specializes in cataract surgery, which is performed by means of phacoemulsification (special ultrasound technique) and with the use of the minimum size technology. Cataract surgery is provided on both outpatient and inpatient basis. Foldable intraocular lens implants enable the smallest surgical incisions and the best optical rehabilitation. 

Refractive surgery aims to eliminate severe visual defects. Due to the implants (intraocular contact lenses, intraocular lenses fixed in the iris), which are often combined with the most advanced laser technology (LASIK, Excimerlaser) it is possible to correct the most severe visual defects. The Department of Ophthalmology at the Klinikum Oberberg in Gummersbach provides about 1,000 operations a year. 

Digital flourescein angiography enables an accurate diagnosis before the treatment, especially in case of diabetic alternations in the cornea and circulatory disorders (macular degeneration, thrombosis and embolism).
