The eye is a complex and highly developed organ composed of various sensitive structures enabling us to see. Good vision depends on healthy eyes. Did you know that we actually see with our brain while the eyes “merely” transmit relevant information from which the brain creates the pictures we perceive?
Given the sensitivity and diversity of the eye’s tissues, they are easily subject to a variety of disorders and diseases. Only ophthalmologists – skilled through continuous training – possess the expertise and diagnostic technology to identify also in early stages such alterations.
In order to achieve best possible results, for example, in refractive surgery a prior detailed examination is necessary to prevent and detect disorders and also to choose the optimal procedure for each patient individually.
Most common illnesses include cataract, dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and alterations caused by diabetes.
