The History of the EuroEyes Clinical Group
From Laser Eye Center to an International Clinical Group
From Laser Eye Center to an International Clinical Group
With more than 25 years of experience the EuroEyes Clinical Group is an association of licensed eye clinics specialized in the correction of refractive disorders (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia). With Laser Eye Centers all across Germany, in Denmark (Copenhagen, Aalborg, Aarhus, Esbjerg, Herning), and in China (Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzen), EuroEyes is among the largest independent clinical groups for laser eye surgery in Germany.
Since 1993, the EuroEyes laser eye surgeons have carried out more than 500,000 LASIK surgeries, and more than 100.000 intraocular surgeries, such as implantations of intraocular lenses and refractive lens exchanges (treatment of presbyopia/cataract surgeries). Thus, they are among the most surgically experienced eye surgeons in Germany in the field of laser eye surgeries and intraocular surgeries.
But the qualifications of non-physician staff Euro Eyes is also a big deal – they are regularly trained and tested in the fields of medicine and service. The EuroEyes Academy has existed in the EuroEyes Clinical Group since December 2007. In this EuroEyes Academy new staff learn about the basics of refractive surgery as well as the quality management system of the clinics. External service providers deliver specialized knowledge of the innovative technology that is used.
This expert knowledge will in any regard stand our patients in good stead, because our top priority is the patient and his/hers safety, customized treatment and satisfaction. Therefore, we place great value on an all inclusive service from the patient’s first visit at the clinic to the final check up. Thanks to our highly specialized clinics and advanced technology, we can offer our patients a unique solution, tailored exactly to his or her eyes. It is our goal not only to correct the refractive error, but to provide an overall improvement in the quality of vision.
With the Laser Eye Center in Hamburg, Dr. med. Jørn S. Jørgensen founded one of the first LASIK clinics in Germany in 1993. The American eye surgeon Dr. Albert Neuman from Neuman-Eye-Institute (Florida, USA) had a great role in this regard. In the following years the EuroEyes Laser Eye Center in Hamburg hosted several national and international conferences on the subject of refractive surgery / laser eye surgery.

Shortsighted and farsighted people with astigmatism can now benefit from the innovations in the eye surgery: the implantation of the new so-called toric trifocal lenses will make it possible for those affected to obtain natural vision – and not only the possibility to see well in the near and far distances, but also in the intermediate distances.
At the symposium, about 170 eye surgeons and specialists in the field of ophthalmology from all over China accepted the invitations of the clinic group with headquarters in Hamburg. The Company organized a several-day trip conference in cooperation with the Shanghai optometry doctors and Refractive Surgeons Community and with the Shanghai Ophthalmologist Society of Laser Medicine & Surgery. The aim of the symposium was to provide a platform for scientific exchanges between the German and Chinese doctors. Germany delegated, among others, the internationally renowned eye-specialists and experts such as Prof. Dr. Thomas Neuhann, founder and medical director of EuroEyes laser eye center Munich GmbH, Prof. Dr. Michael Knorz, director of FreeVis LASIK Zentrum at the University Hospital of Mannheim, and professor Dr. Ralf-Christian Lerche, deputy medical director of EuroEyes laser eye surgery clinic group. China was represented by the renowned eye-specialists and experts such as Prof. Chu Renyuan from EENT Hospital affiliated to the Fudan University, and Prof. Li Ying from Beijing Union Medical College Hospital, who delivered lectures at the symposium. The presentations were focused on the treatment of myopia and presbyopia. The thematic selection was oriented towards the needs of Chinese patients: About 80 percent of the Chinese citizens suffer from shortsightedness. “Due to the usually very high level of shortsightedness, people in China often suffer from presbyopia or cataracts at a younger age in comparison, for example, with people in Germany”, Dr. Jørgensen explains.
With a large ceremony, EuroEyes, the first German clinic group, opened its location in China on April 11, 2013. Dr. Jørn Slot Jørgensen, the founder of EuroEyes laser eye surgery clinic group, will be the medical director of the new Laser eye surgery center that occupies an area of 650 square meters on the fifth floor of the J-Life Center in the Jin Mao Tower, the fifth tallest skyscraper in China. 15 eye-specialists are employed at the new location, and about half of them are Germans.
Besides laser eye techniques such as Femtosecond and aberrometer guided LASIK (eeLASIK), gentle corrections of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, intraocular lens implants, anterior chamber lenses, and refractive lens exchange are offered. A cooperation with the Eye Clinic Universitätsallee in Bremen and clinical leader PD Dr. Klaus Lucke, patients with complicated eye conditions are offered supplemental treatment. EuroEyes and the Eye Clinic Universitätsallee collaborate and thereby share competencies and synergies, and aim at improving patients’ vision.
This clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art apparatus and lasers. Furthermore the clinic offers the most modern diagnostics. Thanks to the available techniques and the experience of our surgeons, we can offer all aspects of refractive surgeries.
Here ophthalmologists and refractive coordinators offer prospective customer the opportunity to obtain about the various surgical procedures. In this examination center, equipped with advanced diagnostic devices, the employees carry out suitability checks, consultations and preliminary investigations.
The eye clinic, located on Königsallee (KÖ 62, next to Kö-Galerie, above Jil Sander), is specialized in laser eye treatments and Femtosecond laser (Femto-LASIK). Furthermore, the entire spectrum of refractive surgery is offered here as well, such as lens implants and presbyopia treatment.
