Early detection and diagnostics
Changes in the optic nerve or retina, as in glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration, are severe eye diseases that often become noticeable at a late stage.
Poor eyesight in children is also difficult to detect, as our youngest patients can’t clearly vocalize their complaints or limitations.
Don’t wait for noticeable limitations! In most cases, the eye is then already severely damaged. If chronic eye diseases are diagnosed early, progression can be slowed down or even stopped. If squinting ( amblyopia ) in children is discovered before the age of 6, with the correct treatment, the chances of a complete recovery are very high.
At our clinic in Bocholt, we have a broad portfolio of preventive medical check-ups available for all age groups. Please, ask our doctors or nurses which check-up is best for you!
Thanks to ongoing improvement in diagnostic technology, we can combine the traditional, proven and tested ophthalmological testing with high-technology measurements and AI-based analyses.

In general, the earlier an eye disease is diagnosed, the better the chances of a cure. This is why we recommend regular checks performed by specialist ophthalmologist.
