Outstanding eye surgery at Örebro University Hospital

The Department of Ophthalmology at Örebro University Hospital is characterized by outstanding, highly specialized eye care that above all is focused on retinal and corneal diseases. Patients are referred from the entire country and even from other countries.

New surgical methods for the retina

With increasing age, problems with eye diseases also increase. At the Department of Ophthalmology at Örebro University Hospital, advanced research and care can help patients from the entire country who risk losing their vision due to diseases or damage to the retina or macula.

A new treatment can replace corneal transplantation

The Department of Ophthalmology is running several research projects in order to study collagen cross linking (CXL). This treatment was developed to halt disease progression in keratoconus, a disease in which the cornea gradually becomes cone shaped.

Excellent results after corneal surgery

Diseases and damage to the cornea can cause many problems. Not only does vision decrease, but chafing and local problems in the eye can occur. The Department of Ophthalmology has a well-developed program for corneal surgery.

Fantastic progress in treatment of age-related degenerations of the macula

Age-related changes in the macula (macular degeneration) has until now been the most common cause of permanent vision loss in older patients in Sweden and the rest of the Western world.

During the last few years there have been fantastic advances in the treatment of the more unusual form of wet macula degeneration, says Dr Ingrid Johansson, consultant at the Department of Ophthalmology at Örebro University Hospital.
