Our specialists offer extensive expertise in ophthalmology and patients can make an appointment for a routine annual check-up or a specialised consultation for a wide range of medical conditions, including:
An orthoptist performs technical examinations but also provides rehabilitation care for children and adults.
The demands on our intermediate vision have never been greater due to our constant use of computers. Our vision was once corrected for reading (30 cm) and long distances, however intermediate vision now needs correcting in more and more cases. Eye muscles also need to be trained and strengthened for intermediate distances (looking at a computer screen)..
An orthoptist uses a series of specific exercises to make eye muscles more flexible, so that they can adjust more easily to the different distances used.
Warning signs include headaches, pain behind the eyebrows and even vertigo.
Rehabilitation is covered by health insurance providers in Switzerland.
