Eye Center Cologne
It is probably safe to say that the eye is one of the most important sensory organs of the human body. If a person's sight is impaired by disease, it will have a significant effect on their quality of life. Preserving your vision is the mission of the experienced specialists at the Eye Center Cologne (ECC).
Ophthalmology is a discipline with major sub-specialisations, and accordingly there is a large number of specialist clinics in Germany. The Eye Center Cologne has a long tradition of diversity and excellence in the individual disciplines. Thus, for instance, the ECC holds leading positions, both nationally and internationally, in the treatment of glaucoma and in the field of corneal transplant surgery.
The University's Eye clinic is one of the largest in Germany and conducts pioneering translational research. The Eye Center Cologne is the only eye clinic in Germany with a dedicated research group from the German Research Foundation (DFG). Our areas of specialization include research on new treatment methods of, for example, dry eyes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, transplant rejection, and eye tumors.
