About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Ophthalmology at the University Hospital Marburg under the direction of Univ-Prof. Dr. med. Walter Sekundo has the very latest diagnostic and treatment methods for diseases of the eye, eye muscles, lacrimal passages and eyelids. Thanks to close cooperation with the children's hospital, Departments of Neurology, Neuroradiology, Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, here you can find all diagnostic and therapeutic methods available in modern medicine. 

The Department under the direction of Univ-Prof. Dr. med. Walter Sekundo has an excellent reputation in the treatment of glaucoma. The Department has at its command the most advanced diagnostic methods: in addition to visual acuity testing, the specialists regularly make a visual field test to check functioning of the optic nerve, (biomicroscopic) test of the optic nerve disk, as well as  measurement of the intraocular pressure (using applanation or dynamic tonometry). It is also possible to measure the optic nerve disk with a three-dimensional laser (HRT).

To provide each patient with a comprehensive treatment program, special attention is paid to co-morbidities from various disciplines (e.g. internal medicine / neurology). If for any reason drug treatment is impossible or ineffective, the Department regularly uses different advanced surgical procedures for glaucoma. The Department annually performs about 500 surgeries for glaucoma (or glaucoma-related disorders), including highly complex glaucoma surgery (e.g. drainage implants, stents). 

The diagnosis and treatment of tumors of the eye and eye appendages make up another focus of the Department at the University Hospital Marburg. A histologically controlled tumor resection is performed in the private Pathology Laboratory.
