Our ophthalmology department is equipped with 22 systematized beds, three of them are first-class rooms, each of them with 2 beds, private bathroom and TV. In our house handies are strictly forbidden, but every bed has the possibility for a telephone connection.
The main topics of the ophthalmology department are the treatment of patients with cataract, glaucoma, corneal and retinal illnesses, macula degenerations and treatments of squints, furtheron the medical care of eye-injuries.
The surgicals of cataracts and glaucomas are done by ultrasound- and lasertechnics - the brandnew methods of minimal-invasive surgery. Also at our disposal are special high-qualified lasers (yag and argon) for retinal illnesses (for example in case of diabetes mellitus).
We work with an ophthalmoscopic camera (Zeiss) and we have the possibility to make fluorescence angiographies and ultrasound examinations.
The field of the blepharosurgery and the treatment of infections are another parts of our activity.
About one third of all the surgeries we do (about 1.800 per year) are cataract operations (at the moment more than 1500 per year) and we know that this kind of treatment will get an increasing importance in the future - that´s because of the increasing life expectancy.
