Eye surgery with Swiss precision

Quality is in our DNA

Everything we do is optimised down to the very finest detail.

There’s a right way and a wrong way

The right clinic is not too cheap, too “chain” or too costly. The right clinic is precisely right.

Superior precision

Our vision correction method leaves no room for disappointment.

How much do our reading glasses surgery patients love us?

94.76% to be precise (we’re Swiss. We measure everything). But don’t take our word for it…

Highly recommended!

I got lens implants a year ago. It’s just great not to need glasses anymore. I am very grateful for this option. Everything was very professional – the contact, the examination, the surgery and the follow-up. A great service is provided here.

A world better quality of life thanks to lens implants.

From the first free consultation to the detailed examinations to the day of the operation, I have found all assessments to be thoroughly positive. Even if you have a very pronounced defective vision, you are at the right place here and in competent hands. I am now one of those who would recommend Dr Derhartunian with a clear conscience. Many thanks to the doctor and his whole team for the excellent treatment.

Everything according to my expectations

I had a lens exchange (trifocal lenses) to correct presbyopia at EYELASER in Vienna. The preliminary check-up and consultation were very attentive. The operation was painless, and I could already see well the next day. I can see perfectly now!

Thank you, Dr Victor Derhartunian and Dr Paul Jirák, for everything!

Forgot that I had an operation!

For 31 years, I had visual aids – mainly contact lenses. The reviews here finally convinced me to see Dr Derhartunian. The examinations had to be very precise as a correct result was very difficult due to my severe visual defects. The operation was short and painless. And now, after 3 years? Everything is perfect – I still see wonderfully, have no problems, no dryness – I almost forgot that I had surgery!

I highly recommend Dr Derhartunian – so much quality of life from this one short procedure!

Fully satisfied

From the receptionist/doctor’s assistant to Dr Derhartunian and the surgeon, Dr Jirak, I can recommend this practice to everyone. I was informed in detail about all the risks, and during the consultation, I knew that I was in the right hands. The operation on both eyes took about 45 minutes. I had no pain during the operation or afterwards. Extensive aftercare. I can only recommend this to anyone who decides to take such a step. A big thank you and happy holidays to the whole team.

In good hands from the first moment

I was completely thrilled with the care I received and felt very well looked after from the first contact. The result fully met my expectations. My short-sightedness and presbyopia were corrected. I can only give it the best rating!
