In its structure as a Department of Ophthalmology, the University Eye Hospital together with the Institute for Ophthhalmic Research researches eye diseases and develops new therapeutic methods. For the Department of Ophthalmology, 15 research groups and two sections are investigating different aspects of ophthalmology. Planning and conducting preclinical and clinical research are as much a part of the expertise of the clinic as the implementation of innovative developments of new therapeutic procedures.
