Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is a field of work which requires specialist knowledge and equipment. This area includes both the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, and surgery on the eye.

In our clinic, examinations of the front of the eye are carried out routinely. Opthalmoscopy allows us to assess of the interior of the eye. Measurement of intraocular pressure (tonometry) enables early detection of a dangerous increase in intraocular pressure (glaucoma).

In addition, we carry out all major operations in the fields of orbital surgery and corneal surgery such as correction of rolled eyelids (entropion , ectropion) , removal of abnormally growing eyelashes (distichia , ectopic cilia ) , surgery on the nictating membrane  (“third eyelid”) and treatment of corneal injury.
