Ophthalmology Department

The Ophthalmology Department at Shaare Zedek is one of the leading proponents of eye medicine in Israel. We treat almost 20,000 patients a year and perform cornea, glaucoma, strabismus (correcting cross-eye), retina, vitreous humor and other surgery as well as plastic surgery.
We also treat visual development problems, optic nerve disorders and cataracts with some of the most advanced technology available. The department employs optometrists who conduct comprehensive visual testing and orthoptists who specialize in diagnosing strabismus, focusing and eye movement problems which can often have non-surgical solutions.
