Eye laser (LASIK, SMILE, PRK) is a frequently used procedure with many advantages to get rid of your glasses. However, there are also certain limitations that vary from patient to patient. Individual advantages and disadvantages of each technique (LASIK / SMILE / PRK) are weighed against each other prior to the eye laser treatment and the optimal procedure is found together with you.
Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery at IROC eye clinic in Zurich, but also in ophthalmology in general. Our ophthalmologists use high-tech procedures such as femtosecondlaser, phacoemulsification, toric and multifocal lenses to further increase the safety of cataract surgery and to further improve the outcome of the cataract surgery and to optimize the visual results for our patients.
Keratoconus is a slowly progressive disease of the cornea. As the only provider in Switzerland, the IROC eye clinic ophthalmologists perform customized crosslinking, currently the most modern, and most efficient treatment technique of keratoconus. In case of very far-progressed keratoconus, IROC is a reference center for corneal transplantations, performing most corneal transplantations in the Canton of Zurich.
Our macular therapy is based on the great advances in the diagnosis and treatment of macular diseases such as the age-related macular degeneration using Lucentis- and Eylea-injections. The most individually possible care of affected eyes is the ultimate goal of our ophthalmologists at IROC eye clinic.
If you have observed a change in your eyelids (e.g. drooping eyelids), our ophthalmologists at IROC in Zurich will inform and advise you about the different possibilities of a correction.
Glaucoma is the second most frequent cause of blindness among adults in the developed world. Blindness due to glaucoma is avoidable and our ophthalmologists in Zurich would be glad to help to find the optimal therapy for your glaucoma together with you.
