Prof. h.c. (Turkmenistan) Dr. Ulrich C. Schaller

"Founded as a charitable institution, the Herzog Carl-Theodor Eye Clinic, rich in tradition, still enjoys an excellent and supra-regional reputation today. This is due to the high commitment and qualification of physicians and experienced nursing staff as well as state-of-the-art technical equipment. Only in this way can the entire spectrum of ophthalmology be offered to you as a patient at the highest level. After years in clinic, research and teaching, I look forward to working with my colleagues to provide you with the best possible treatment for your eyes."
