Your vision requires a complex interaction of optics, muscular coordination and nerve processing. If there are deficits in these areas, vision becomes exhausting and burning, overstrained eyes up to double images, fatigue and headaches are the result. In the majority of cases, an attempt is made to alleviate these complaints only by means of an optimal correction of the optics. eyeness goes much further than that. We will conduct a comprehensive anamnesis and analysis of your visual abilities and the systems of the body that affects the eye.

This will include the following investigations:

  • Detailed analysis of your workplace, your activities and the associated visual requirements
  • Determination of corrected as well as uncorrected visual acuity
  • Objective and subjective eyeglass lens determination
  • eye function tests
  • Test of pupil reflexes
  • Control of contrast vision
  • Control of colour vision
  • Analysis of eye coordination and eye mobility
  • Investigation of three-dimensional vision
  • Examination of the anterior segment of the eye using digital microscopy
  • Topography of the cornea front and back surface
  • Measurement of corneal thickness
  • Measurement of the intraocular pressure under consideration of the corneal thickness
  • Analysis of the central retina by laser photography and tomography
  • Octopus perimetry – visual field measurement and analysis

Prophylactic examinations concerning cataract (cataract), glaucoma (glaucoma), malpositioning of the eyes or eyelids are an important investment in the health of your eyes. If this data does not correspond to the norm, we will of course refer you to your ophthalmologist by providing you with a detailed report.

Childoptometry

Children are very precious to us as parents. Children not only need special examination methods, but also careful and age-appropriate care. In close cooperation with the parents, your ophthalmologist and the visual school (orthoptics), we take care of your children from the age of 6 weeks onwards on their path to vision. Problem-solving solutions include glasses, visual training, but also contact lenses. Contrary to popular belief, even small children and babies are excellent contact lens wearers. The informal, non-binding introductory consultation is of central importance. Call us for this conversation in a quiet environment.

myopia management

The number of people with short-sightedness (myopia) has increased massively throughout the last few years. The growth in the length of the eyes poses an increased health risk in the longterm. The following chart illustrates the increasing risk of higher myopia:

An actual cause of myopia is not yet known. However, there are certain factors involved in myopia development. Test now the risk of developing a high myopia on myopiacare.org

For many years, extensive studies have been conducted in the field of myopia control. With early countermeasures it is possible to slow down the negative development significantly. The following chart shows a compilation of myopia control procedures and their effectiveness from more than 30 scientific papers:

Innovative multifocal contact lenses (not to be confused with contact lenses for presbyopia) slow down the increase of myopia up to 45%. The CooperVision mysight special lenses are soft contact lenses worn during the day that are replaced daily by a fresh pair. They correct myopia, but not astigmatism.

Orthokeratology (night lenses) is currently the most effective way to control myopia. These lenses are worn only during sleep and change the cell layers of the eye overnight so that people with ametropia can see sharply during the day – without lenses or glasses. Myopia up to 8.0dpt and astigmatism up to 4.0dpt can be corrected. In addition to the positive effect on myopia, night lenses are ideal for all those who feel restricted during the day with lenses or glasses. Further advantages are:

  • Bathing and sports without restrictionsm
  • Minimal risk of loss
  • no dry eyes
  • no dust under the lenses
  • no problems with hay fever

Night lenses have been successfully fitted in the USA and Australia for over 40 years. Thanks to over three decades of experience, long-term damage to the eye can be ruled out. We ourselves have been successfully practicing this procedure since 2003, making us one of the pioneers in Europe.

No matter which procedure is used, we work closely with your ophthalmologist and have the eye length measured regularly.

  • Swimming, Sport without restrictions
  • minimal risk of loss
  • no dry eyes
  • no foreign body underneath the contacts
  • no hay fever related problems

Eyeglass lens determination

The foundation for good and comfortable vision is the optimized optics for your needs. With great dedication, we carry out precise lens determinations for all age groups and all visual needs. You will receive your individual prescription from us, which you can hand over to your optician for your next pair of glasses. We guarantee that!

Refractive Surgery

Surgical vision corrections, i.e. laser surgery (e.g. LASIK or other methods) as well as implant surgery are now part of everyday life in a comprehensive vision consultation. For that purpose, we train ourselves several times a year at various clinics and specialist conferences. As part of an individual preliminary examination, we will inform you objectively, neutrally and comprehensively about the possibilities and limitations of these procedures. On request, we will refer you to one of the leading eye surgery clinics in Switzerland. The close cooperation with your ophthalmologist and surgeon is of great benefit and guarantees the greatest possible success. We deliberately offer this service independently and can therefore advise you impartially.
