The procedures are performed by leading specialists in eye microsurgery who have done thousands of successful operations. Most problems with vision are treatable, and the Eye Surgery Center can resolve your specific issue quickly and professionally!

When an operation is necessary

The human eye is a complex optical device. Its primary task is to transmit accurate images to the optic nerve, which transmits the signal to the brain. But like any other optical system, the human eye can also at times function incorrectly. Inflammation, growth anomalies, dystrophic changes, tumors, physiological changes, bad habits, endocrine disorders, injuries to eye structures, the huge stream of information that our eyes have to process every day – all of these can lead to deteriorated vision and even blindness.

While many pathologies are treatable using conservative approaches, other eye disorders such as cataracts or dacryocystitis can only be corrected through surgery. The Eye Surgery Center at GMS performs complicated microsurgery interventions, restoring vision even in cases that at first seem untreatable.
