WELCOME TO THE WORLD CHAMPION

The EuroEyes clinic group has existed for over 25 years and is a network of licensed eye clinics, specializing in the correction of ametropia (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia). With 15 eye laser centers in Germany, 5 clinics in Denmark (Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg, Esbjerg, Herning) and 7 laser eye centers in China (Beijing East and West, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Shanghai and Shenzhen), EuroEyes is one of the largest independent clinic groups for laser eye surgery and lens surgery worldwide. EuroEyes laser eye surgeons have performed more than 500,000 surgeries and more than 100,000 intraocular procedures such as the implantation of intraocular contact lenses (ICL) and refractive lens replacement / multifocal lenses (presbyopia correction / cataract surgery) since 1993. This means that EuroEyes has implanted the most trifocal lenses worldwide and the most ICL contact lenses in Europe.

Each laser eye center in Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Leipzig and Stuttgart is a member of the VSDAR (Association of Specialist Clinics in Germany for Laser Eye and Refractive Surgery). Quality assurance and exchange of experience with the leading experts in Germany and Europe form the basis of the work of the VSDAR.

But also the “qualification of non-medical EuroEyes employees is essential, they are regularly trained and checked in the fields of medicine and service”. The EuroEyes Clinic Group has established a EuroEyes Academy since December 2007. In this EuroEyes Academy, new employees are taught the basics of refractive surgery and the quality management system of the clinics. External service providers impart special knowledge about the innovative technology that is used. This special knowledge benefits our patients in every area, because our priority is the patient and his safety, tailor-made treatment and satisfaction. That is why we attach great importance to all-round care of the patient from the first visit to the clinic to the final check. Thanks to our highly specialized clinics and state-of-the-art technology, we can offer our patients an individual, tailor-made solution. Our aim is not only to correct the ametropia, but to improve the quality of vision as a whole.

In 1993 Dr. med. Jørn S. Jørgensen founded the Hamburg Eye Laser Center, one of the first LASIK clinics in Germany. The American eye surgeon Dr. Albert Neuman from the Neuman Eye Institute (Florida, USA) had a great role in this regard. In the following years, the EuroEyes Laser Eye Center in Hamburg organized several national and international congresses on the subject of refractive surgery / laser eye surgery. There are regular information evenings for patients at all locations.

2019

  • EuroEyes goes public in Hong Kong: on October 15, 2019, EuroEyes successfully listed its shares on the main board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (“SEHK”). With an initial price listing on the SEHK of 14.20 Hong Kong dollars, the first price was almost 90 percent higher than the final offer price for the newly issued shares of 7.50 Hong Kong dollars. With the proceeds from the IPO, EuroEyes plans above all to build clinics in major Chinese cities such as Chengdu and Chongqing, possible acquisitions of clinics in Europe and to intensify marketing activities.

  • The sixth EuroEyes eye clinic in China opened on September 5, 2019 in Beijing (East). With the experience of over 500,000 eye surgeries worldwide, glasses and contact lens wearers in China are now available alongside Shanghai, Beijing (West), Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, a sixth top-class eye clinic in Beijing (East).

  • In June 2019, EuroEyes opened a clinic in Hangzhou, the fifth location in China. Jørgensen, founder and medical director of the EuroEyes clinic group, sees China as an important pillar for the refractive surgery market and gives an outlook: “In addition to our four other clinics in China, we now also offer our leading ophthalmological spectrum to those interested in Hangzhou. We are impressed by the Chinese people’s passion for healthy living – which of course also includes a clear view without annoying glasses and contact lenses. Together with our Chinese ophthalmological friends, we will not disappoint this hope.”

  • As of this season, EuroEyes is the official IRONMAN Eyes and Vision partner of the German and Scandinavian IRONMAN events. The Eye Clinic Group aims to combine sporting pleasure and medical care – sport without glasses, cycling, swimming and running without contact lenses. With the signing of a one-year agreement, EuroEyes also extended the title partnership for the EuroEyes Cyclassics for 2019 and expanded its commitment to the long-distance triathlon.
