Re: US licensed optometrist in Switzerland

From a list of Zurich doctors supplied by the US embassy:

Quote:
Dr. Med. Ania Porazinski Quinter
Fachärztin FMH für Ophthalmologie
Board Certified, American Board of Ophthalmology
I realize that an ophthalmologist is not an optometrist, but s/he may be suitably licensed (or have contacts).

Re: US licensed optometrist in Switzerland

Herr Poffa studied in USA and I believe, teaches optometry in Switzerland. He works on Mondays and Tuesday afternoons at
http://www.trotteraarau.ch/de/ueberuns/spitzenteam

Otherwise, if this location is not good, ask him, as I am sure he shall know.

Good luck.
