Dr. med. Ernst Höfling

"In the Herzog Carl Theodor Eye Clinic, the Herzog spirit continues to blow, to see all people, regardless of age, disease and status, as equally important and to examine and treat them according to current medical standards. Personally, I am very pleased to now be able to offer and perform the discipline of strabismus medicine in all its facets in this institution, where my ophthalmological career began even before residency, and to alleviate or eliminate the associated discomfort for those affected."

Ernst Höfling, MD

Dr. Höfling performs the preparatory examinations and the follow-up care in the practice.
