All doctors are engaged in research work and regularly publish scientific articles in specialized journals.
In Geneva, there is the Hirslanden Clinique des Grangettes, which is part of a large chain of private Hirslanden clinics. The Department of Ophthalmic Surgery performs laser vision correction, corneal transplantation, removal of tumors and foreign bodies, and treatment of other pathologies.

TREATMENT AND COST
Cataract treatment in Switzerland is carried out using a YAG laser. The operation is performed on an outpatient basis, painless. During the procedure, intraocular pressure stabilizes. After removal of the cataract, the lens is replaced with the implantation of a multifocal lens. In contrast to the use of monofocal lenses, there is no need for glasses and contact lenses, as the patient sees well at different distances. The implant is placed through an incision less than 2.5 mm long, which is self-tight without suture.
Treatment of glaucoma in Switzerland begins with the use of drugs that reduce the pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma surgery is performed using low-traumatic laser technologies that are more effective than traditional surgical interventions.
Laser vision correction in Switzerland is performed by highly qualified surgeons, world experts in the field of ophthalmic surgery. At the same time, the structure of the cornea is preserved, the result is stable and long-term. There are also no wounds, so recovery takes 1-2 days.
Correction of strabismus is carried out with the help of specialized glasses and lenses, however, in some cases, the defect is corrected surgically. Surgical intervention lasts an average of no more than an hour, the patient returns to his usual way of life within a week. The operation is performed on the surface of the eye, which minimizes the risk of infection.
For the treatment of diseases of the retina and vitreous body, Swiss ophthalmologists perform vitrectomy. Surgeons use microsurgical instruments, due to which the rehabilitation period is significantly reduced, the risk of injury and bleeding is reduced.
