The founder 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 and the entire Euro Eyes clinic group functions under his medical direction and leadership.
Dr. Jørn S. Jørgensen is a specialist in ophthalmology, has 25 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 ophthalmology.
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 chief and head physician in Bremen, Germany, and in Spain, where he worked in the private 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 completed extensive 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 the first eye surgeon to perform outpatient cataract surgery – using a new micro-incision technique (phacoemulsification). Less than a year later, he introduces the “no-stitch cataract surgery”. He always pursues the objective of making the treatments to patients as gentle and nice as possible. With a view to maintaining the patients’ health and quality of life it is even possible altogether to waive the usual hospital stay of 5 days.
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 will lay the foundation for a location in China in November 2011 with EuroEyes – the first German hospital group ever to do so. The official opening of the clinic in the eastern Chinese financial metropolis of Shanghai will take place at the end of 2012. Between 2015 and 2017, further EuroEyes laser centers will follow in Beijing, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
In 2017, Dr. Jørgensen succeeds in the hattrick and wins the three most important titles in refractive eye surgery. He has performed the most ReLEx smile eye laser corrections in Germany, implanted the most ICL lenses in Europe and implanted the most trifocal lenses worldwide for the third year in a row.

Your recommended treatment:
ReLEx smile technology is a gentle form of laser vision correction that allows you to correct myopia. Therefore, corneal curvature is easily treatable with this method. During the procedure ReLEx smile the cornea opens with a small incision of 2 mm. A 3D disk (lenticular) that was previously prepared using a femtosecond laser is extracted through this “keyhole”.
This lenticule corresponds exactly to the weight and size of the corrected ametropia. The whole procedure takes about 32 seconds per eye. (For people aged 45-64: Femto-LASIK is medically possible, but we recommend using trifocal / multifocal lenses to prevent cataracts.) The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
For more than 20 years, implantable contact lenses made from Collamer® (abbreviated as ICL) have been the best solution for patients with severe ametropia or a damaged cornea. Unlike contact lenses, ICL remains permanently in the eye. These lenses are inserted between the iris and the own lens of the eye. The ICL in combination with the natural lens ensures that the light is correctly focused on the retina and that the patient can see again clearly without glasses. You are in good hands with us: EuroEyes has implanted the largest number of ICL contact lenses throughout Europe. The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
Femto-LASIK is one of the most reliable methods for correcting visual defects (enter the appropriate type of ametropia depending on the test result). To correct the refraction error using the Femto-LASIK procedure, a small round cap is separated on the cornea. During the Femto-LASIK procedure, the preparation of a corneal flap, also known as a flap, is performed using a femtosecond laser. The whole procedure is carried out without the use of mechanical cutting tools. The laser performs individual correction of ametropia and simulates the shape of the cornea. Then the flap is fixed in its original place. It adheres to the surface of the eye due to the strength of adhesion and protects the eye as an internal adhesive. (For people aged 45-64: Femto-LASIK is medically possible, but we recommend using trifocal / multifocal lenses to prevent cataracts.) The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
Using trifocal / multifocal intraocular lenses, also known as artificial lenses, is a safe and accurate method for correcting presbyopia (enter the appropriate type of ametropia depending on the test result). The natural, more non-functioning lens of the eye, is replaced by an artificial lens (multifocal lens). The advanced artificial lens has several focal points, which allows you to see at different distances without glasses. These very well tolerated lenses can remain in the eye throughout the life of a person and not be visible. The refractive lens replacement procedure (lensectomy) is a tested and proven method. This method has been used for the treatment of cataracts for decades and is the most frequently performed type of surgery in the world. EuroEyes clinics performed the largest number of implantations of multifocal lenses worldwide. The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
