About

The Breyer, Kaymak & Klabe Eye Surgery in Düsseldorf specializes in minimally invasive and painless therapies for eye diseases (keyhole surgery). Each of the three practising and internationally recognized and awarded eye surgeons concentrates on specific sub-areas of eye surgery, thus ensuring that patients receive an incision that is on an above-average international standard in the doctor's respective speciality.

To provide increasingly gentle and painless treatments, the ophthalmologists are scientifically active and manage various research projects, e.g. in cooperation with the Eye Clinic of Heidelberg University Hospital (IVCRC.net). The specialists have already accomplished pioneering work in numerous areas and received several honours as well.

In addition to the professional qualifications, the ophthalmologists also pay great attention to their patients' well-being. An upscale practice ambience, well-organized work procedures and friendly staff guarantee a welcome and pleasant atmosphere. Special emphasis is placed on comprehensive doctor-patient communication.
