Ophthalmic care in Switzerland is of a high quality. Nevertheless, illnesses can often be steered towards a better prognosis or even staved off by way of targeted prevention, early detection and modern therapy approaches.

This is the SAoO's area of focus. In addition to the promotion of research and advanced training, we are concerned with supporting ophthalmological practice and equipping primary points of contact with the relevant specialist knowledge. This is why we emphasise the optimisation of general standards of quality and actively work towards knowledge-sharing and innovation.
