As Specialists in ophthalmology we deal with diseases and malfunctions of the eye and the peripheral organs.
Among the peripheral organs including the eyelids and facial skin and the eye socket.
We are working closely with otolaryngologists, dermatologists and neurologists.
With ophthalmologic findings, we support the internal medicine at the diagnosis.
The cataract (cataract) is a clouding of the eye lens. The cause of cataract is often unknown.
A common symptom is the slow and painless loss of vision. Patients tell of blurry, as seen through a mist.
Many Patienen are increasingly sensitive to light. The cataract can often develop as a „senile cataract“ in a few month.
With more than 650,000 operation cataract operations are the most frequently performed surgical procedures in Germany.
In the vast majority of cases, cataract surgery is performed under local anesthesia. After cataract surgery, the operated eye is covered with a bandage.
With no complications the bandage may already be removed for a short time on the following day.
After cataract surgery patients often report that they perceive colors more intense and everything appears clearly brighter in total than before surgery.
Plastic and cosmetic eyelid surgery
Indeed, the eyes take up most of the performance of our counterparts.
With drooping eyelids or eye bags we are perceived differently.
The plastic and cosmetic eyelid surgery needs experience and intuition to obtain an aesthetical, natural feeling.
In the so-called blepharoplasty eyelid skin and the underlying histoid layers are tightened and excess histoid is removed.
With plastic and cosmetic eyelid surgery you win back your healthy personality.
Glaucoma (Glaucoma) describes a number of eye diseases of different causes.
Glaucoma results in the loss of nerve fibers. In extreme cases, glaucoma leads to blindness of the eye.
Typical signs of glaucoma is a visual defect in which the field is concentrated outside. There are also visual disturbances possible in view of the center.
If untreated, glaucoma can lead to blindness.
A mismatch between intraocular pressure and blood flow to the optic nerve may contribute to the development of glaucoma.
The combination of low blood pressure and high intraocular pressure is particularly unfavorable to the disease process.
In the retina surgery and vitreous surgery all eye disorders concerning the retina and the vitreous body are treated. The retina surgery and vitreous surgery are considered summarized as retinal operations are usually carried out by the vitreous.
In particular, retinal detachment, arterial and venous occlusions, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinal changes in diabetes and retinopathy of prematurity are typical eye diseases that are treated with the Vitreoretinal Surgery.
Especially in children an ophthalmological screening is important. 60 percent of poor eyesight in children are detected too late.
More than 90 percent of the senses that your child needs for its normal development, reach the brain through the eye.
If visual disturbances will not be detected in the early childhood, valuable time is lost for an undisturbed development of the senses.
With a timely treatment a lifelong visual impairment can be prevented.
With age-appropriate vision tests and painless examinations visual performance can be checked and a refractive errors can be detected.
With checkups the ophthalmologist gives clarity and certainty.
Sehschule for children
In laser surgery, we use YAG laser and argon laser.
A cataract surgery can cause a haze.
With the YAG laser we open up the clouded lens skin. The procedure is painless.
One form of glaucoma can lead to a sudden increase in intraocular pressure.
With the YAG laser, we are developing a small hole in the iris. Eyes water can circulate again and the pressure declines.
Diabetic retinal disease, retinal thrombosis and edema can be treated with the argon laser.
The laser focus has a diameter of 0.1 to 0.5 mm and improves the oxygen supply to the retina.
Macular disease or macular degeneration are diseases of the eye retina.
The most common form is age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Rarely are congenital or childhood macular generations.
Smoking and high blood pressure are risk factors of AMD.
Potential Effects of AMD:
- Decrease in visual acuity
- Decrease the contrast feeling
- Loss of color vision
- Decrease in the ability to adapt to changing light conditions
- Increase in glare sensitivity
- central visual field defects
