About Prof. Dr Anselm Jünemann, F.E.B.O.

Prof. Dr Anselm Jünemann is a specialist for the posterior eye segment and has been working at the Viselle Eye Center Erlangen since 2019.

The Viselle Eye Center is the contact for patients in all areas of ophthalmology and stands for outpatient innovative high-performance medicine. The experienced surgeon Prof. Jünemann treats diseases of the posterior segment of the eye with modern, minimally invasive techniques.

Viselle Eye Center Erlangen

The Viselle Eye Center stands for outpatient innovative high-performance medicine in the Erlangen-Nuremberg metropolitan region and is a competent contact for patients in all areas of ophthalmology. The headquarters, Nägelsbachstraße in Erlangen, is home to the outpatient surgery center with the latest laser technology and state-of-the-art surgical techniques. During regular and special consultation hours, recognized specialists examine and treat patients with the most modern examination techniques and equipment.

One of the Leading Glaucoma Specialists in Germany

Glaucoma is used to describe diseases that lead to optic nerve damage and, therefore, often to blindness. One of the leading causes of optic nerve damage is chronically elevated intraocular pressure, often combined with other conditions such as altered blood flow to the retina or the optic nerve.

Glaucoma therapy is one of Prof. Jünemann's main focusses of treatment. For many years he was active in glaucoma research. In 2000, Prof. Jünemann habilitated on the early diagnosis of chronic glaucoma. At the University Eye Hospital Erlangen, he has led numerous scientific projects in glaucoma research since 2006. From 2014 to 2018, he was head physician at the Department and Polyclinic of Ophthalmology at the University Medical Center Rostock. Since 2019, he has been back in Erlangen as a glaucoma specialist at the Viselle Eye Center.

There are various conservative and surgical treatment options for glaucoma treatment. Prof. Jünemann uses various modern methods to lower intraocular pressure. Laser surgical procedures include laser trabeculoplasty with the argon laser to improve aqueous humor outflow and transscleral cyclophotocoagulation with the diode laser to reduce aqueous humor production.

A newer method of pressure reduction is endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation with a diode laser. In addition, other traditional and new surgical procedures of glaucoma surgery are carried out, among others, non-penetrating glaucoma surgery (deep sclerectomy, trabeculotomy, 360° canaloplasty) and filtering glaucoma surgery (trabeculectomy).

Modern Laser Surgery for Diseases of the Posterior Eye Segment

In recent years, many new laser surgical and microsurgical procedures have been developed for the treatment of retinal and vitreous diseases. While most diseases were inoperable and not curable in the past, today many diseases of the posterior eye segment can be successfully treated. Prof. Jünemann and his colleagues at the Viselle Eye Center use the following procedures:

  1. Laser surgical procedures
  2. Surgical procedures that do not open the eyeball
  3. The modern procedures of retinal vitrectomy (pars plana - vitrectomy).
  4. Entry of drugs into the vitreous cavity (IVOM)

This offers the experienced ophthalmologist in Erlangen many possibilities to treat diseases of the posterior eye segment such as AMD, diabetic macular edema, and other macular and retinal diseases.

Eye Surgery for Cataract with Premium Artificial Lenses

In addition to his expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the posterior eye segment, Porf. Jünemann also has many years of experience in the field of cataract surgery and refractive surgery. At the Viselle Eye Center Erlangen, the focus is on implanting innovative artificial lenses with extended functions, so-called premium artificial lenses, for better vision after cataract.

Corneal Surgery

Corneal surgery is another focus of Prof. Jünemann. At the Eye Practice Clinic, he carries out various methods of corneal transplantation, ablation of superficial corneal scars, removal of pronounced astigmatism, and pterygium surgery.
