What you need to know about Ophthalmology in Germany

A branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. Specialists in this field are known as Ophthalmologists and offer a range of care, from vision corrective glasses and contact lenses to eye laser surgery (LASIK), an invasive form of long-term correction of the vision. With diseases of the eye, Ophthalmologists tend to focus on one speciality, including retinal ophthalmology (retina), anterior segment surgery (iris, cornea and lens), neuro ophthalmology (nervous system), ocular oncology (tumours), oculoplastic (surgery of the eye sockets, eyelids and tear ducts) and paediatric ophthalmologists (children).

About Germany

The largest country in Central Europe, this European Union powerhouse is considered to have the best health care system in Europe. Medical Tourists tend to visit Germany for the quality of service rather than the price, with Ophthalmology procedures being a popular choice. Compared to neighboring Poland and Hungary, prices are considerably higher. With only two JCI accredited facilities, Germany relies more on its local accreditation bodies, including the German Institute for Standardisation, the Telemedicine for the Mobile Society (TEMOS) and the Cooperation for Quality and Transparency in Healthcare (KTQ-GmBH). Most doctors and even medical staff are fluent in English. Popular medical tourism destinations outside of the capital, Berlin, include Munich, Hamburg and Frankfurt.
