Our ophthalmological group practice, consisting of six experienced specialists and a top team of trained staff, offers modern ophthalmology in a pleasant atmosphere and a location which is easy to reach by car and public transport.
We treat a large number of patients, children as well as adults of all ages, using state-of-the-art diagnosis and therapy procedures.
Of the approximately 2,000 operations we perform annually, over 80% are carried out on an out-patient basis in our OP department on the premises – thanks to our modern equipment and technologies, while the remainder are performed in our in-patient clinic in the “Johann Kentmann GmbH” District Hospital in Torgau.
Our activities focus on the individual. Based on state-of-the-art equipment technologies, a wealth of experience as well as “time for the patient”, we endeavour to be effective for the sake of our patients’ health – both in case of illness and preventative examinations and consultations.
For over 65 years, we have fostered a close intertwining of out- and in-patient care:
