The most important thing in patient work for me is that we are able to maintain good vision and prevent blindness and vision loss in people. We had a real breakthrough in treating the macula in eye care about ten years ago. Now we can treat this delicate, sharp-sighted area in a very different way than we anticipated to the possible.
I became interested in ophthalmology already at the beginning of my studies. This is a very diverse and intriguing specialty. We treat patients from all phases of life. Here, as in miniature, all others specialities are combined. My work is very rewarding! A large proportion of ophthalmic patients are elderly, and with these new treatments, we get a better quality of life: at best, keeping their eyesight may, for example, allow them to live at home for longer instead of moving to a facility.
