Dr. med. Jørn S. Jørgensen

The founder, chairman, executive Director and CEO of the Euro Eyes clinic group, Dr. Jørn Slot Jørgensen is regarded one of the leading authorities in the field of refractive surgery. The Euro Eyes Eye Laser Clinic in Hamburg as well as the entire EuroEyes clinic group, is subject to his medical management and is considered to be an extremely competent point of contact for laser eye and cataract patients.


Dr. Jørn S. Jørgensen is a specialist in ophthalmology, has 30 years of experience as an eye surgeon, and is a trailblazer in Denmark and Germany in the field of refractive and cataract surgery. He is among the pioneers of a new generation who have established a new paradigm in the field of refractive surgery.

The Danish born Dr. Jørgensen completed his studies in medicine at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. Later he moved to Hamburg, where he completed his medical training in 1986 at the University Eye Clinic Eppendorf.

Dr. Jørgensen, who has always been considered a cosmopolitan with great interest in innovations, has gained his experience in several countries, including Norway, St. Gallen in Switzerland, as senior physician in Bremen, Germany, and in Spain, where he worked as chief surgeon the private Eye clinic Navarro in Gijon and Oviedo.

Throughout his work, he was always increasingly interested in the field of refractive surgery. He wanted to know how to correct vision disorders and how to succeed in achieving change for the better – how to offer patients a sustainable alternative to their conventional vision aids. To find answers to these questions, he went to Florida, where he performed  training in refractive surgery at Newman Eye Institute, which at the time was considered one of the leading institutions in this field.

Dr. Jørgensen wanted to bring his acquired expertise to his chosen hometown, Hamburg. Parallel to his new-found passion for refractive surgery he succeeded in 1990 as one of the first eye surgeon to perform outpatient cataract surgery – using a new micro-incision technique (phacoemulsification). Less than a year later, he was one of the first to introduce the “no-stitch cataract surgery”.

In 1993 EuroEyes Hamburg was founded by Dr. Jørgensen – the flagship of the current company – after he, a year prior to this, succeeds in introducing LASIK for the correction of vision disorders in the Hanseatic city.

The innovative mind of its founder, helps the company to rapid growth and allows within a few years EuroEyes to successfully establish itself as Germany’s largest independent clinical group for refractive surgery.

Always one step ahead, Dr. Jørgensen is in 2006 one of the founders of the LASIK TÜV in Germany. The seal of approval is for patients as a guide when selecting a professional LASIK clinic. It certifies the highest possible quality standards according to the strictest criteria.

Today, EuroEyes is considered the leading address in Germany and Denmark for the treatment of refractive disorders, and applies a major pioneering role in the treatment of presbyopia, ICL implantation, Femto-LASIK, and much more.

With his absolute commitment and surgical experience, Dr. Jørgensen is considered the top expert in the overall spectrum of surgical vision correction.

His success has already reached the magic number of 100,000 eye surgeries carried out by hand (80,000 lens implantations and more than 100,000 laser eye surgery treatments).

He is in first-class television, radio and print media such as Stern, Schümanns Hamburger, Focus, Der Welt, Hamburger Abendblatt, the TV channel Hamburg 1 and the NDR broadcast “Visits”, and is present as a speaker in numerous national and international conferences.

In 2011 Dr. Jørgensen was, as the only surgeon for cataract and refractive surgery in Hamburg, recommended from Focus – Focus-Ärzteliste.

In line with his vision, Dr. Jørgensen laid the foundation for a location in China in 2013 with EuroEyes – the first foreign entrant (except for those from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) to the PRC vision correction services market. The official opening of the clinic in the eastern Chinese financial metropolis of Shanghai took place in 2013. Between 2015 and 2021, further EuroEyes laser centers followed in 2x Beijing , Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou and Beijing, Chongquin.

In 2017, Dr. Jørgensen succeeds in the Hattrick and won the three most important titles in refractive eye surgery. He has carried out the most ReLEx SMILE procedures in Germany, the most phakic lens (ICL) surgeries in Europe and the most Zeiss trifocal lens exchange surgeries worldwide for the third year in a row.

On September 5, 2019, Dr. Jørgensen hperformed surgery on his own son, Jannik Jørgensen.  His high myopia was corrected with ICL lenses , at the new major EuroEyes clinic opening in Beijing. “On the occasion of the opening of our EuroEyes clinic in Beijing East, I decided to make the day even more special by enabling my son Jannik to live without glasses. The procedure went extremely well – Jannik and our family are very satisfied with the result ”, says Dr. Jørgensen after the treatment.

A milestone for EuroEyes: On October 15, 2019, Dr. Jørgensen announced the successful listing of EuroEyes shares on the Main Board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (“SEHK”).

With the proceeds from the IPO, EuroEyes is primarily planning the construction of clinics in major Chinese cities, possible acquisitions of clinics in Europe and the intensification of marketing activities.
