The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science provides medical and surgical treatment of eye diseases. The department members’ interests include cataract surgery with lense implantation, transplantation including corneal diseases plus refractive surgery, vitreo-retinal surgery, and medical diseases of the retina including special treatment of diabetic retinopathy and age-related retinal degenerations, eye plastic surgery, strabismus surgery, and neuro-opthalmology.
Refractive surgery is based on special imaging of the cornea obtained by the computer. The surgery is employed to correct irregularities in the cornea. In selected cases, we also use surgery to correct refractive errors, eliminating the need for glasses.
