The Institute for Refractive and Ophthalmic Surgery (IROC) in Zurich is an eye clinic offering the entire spectrum of eye care and is run by a very experienced team of Zurich ophthalmologists. What could say more about our expertise than the fact that the world’s first eye laser surgery in 1986 was performed by our founder and chairman Professor Theo Seiler, MD, PhD. Ongoing scientifical cooperations with leading ophthalmologic companies enable IROC access to the newest technical developments in ophthalmology.

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.
