Eye Doctor in Zurich recommendation

Hi,

Can anyone recommend an Opthamologist in Zurich please. I had an infection in one of my eyes which hasn't completely healed and i was told by my doctor that i would need to see an Opthamologist.

Does anyone have any experience of the Eye Doctors at Tremli Hospital or Zurich University Hospital?

I wanted to see someone as soon as possible.

Thank you.

I don't know where you are located in ZH, but I can recommend my own eye doctor, they are located in Oerlikon.

I can only speak generally, but through experience in my part of the country, but when I've visited a hospital Opthalmic Dept. (in 2 different Cantonal Hospitals), I've always been referred, and certainly wasn't able to choose whom, I saw.

Re: Eye Doctor in Zurich recommendation

I've been to Triemli Augenklinik several times, always by referral.

(My opthalmologist, the referring doc, is in Pfäffikon SZ - so probably too far away to be of help to you.)

When you have a referral, the clinic sends you a letter assigning an appointment date - if that isn't convenient you have to call and try to reorganize the appointment; it's a bit of a pain. I'm guessing that without a referral it might be difficult to get an appointment soon-ish. But your GP could make a referral as well, so that might be an option.

The clinic is very busy, often one has to wait for quite some time, you might also have a lengthy wait between consultation and the various procedures. I usually have to schedule a half day at least.

That said the doctors and clinic staff I have seen have been quite competent, no complaints. I've always been treated well there.

But honestly, I'd go to a private Augenarzt first - whenever I develop an infection my opthalmologist has been able to diagnose and treat it.

He only sends me to Triemli for certain tests, and when an interdisciplinary consultation is needed.

Hope you find the treatment you need - don't let it go too long! Good luck.

I went here:

Overall it was ok, they have English-speaking doctors, although it was a bit more expensive than I expected (over 150sfr for a consultation plus tests for the infection).
