Laser Eye Surgery near Geneva (or beyond)

Hi All,

Recently arrived to Lausanne and looking at getting laser eye surgery here in Switzerland. I haven't had much time yet to do research on which ones are best, safest, etc so would love recommendations from anyone who's had it done while here.

If it's a clinic near Lausanne/Geneva great, but I'm more than happy to go to Zurich, etc for a better rated place. Would also be great to know what prices you've come across.

So far I had EHC - Simplon and Focus Laser mentioned, but not much detail other than that.

Also, I see that some clinics offer discounts if you're with certain insurance companies - as I'm with Swica that would be great if a discount existed.

Very best,
Michael

If you can make it to Neufchâtel I recommend Professor Jean-Philippe Colliac at clinic de la Providence. He is top notch and very experienced since the early days of LASIK.

Would he do complicated stuff, too? Cataracts, muscles repair, retina repair, etc.? I need othed things than just Lasic, so I am currently looking around.

I know he splits his time between Paris and Neufchatel but specializes in Refractive Surgery. They have possibilities there for retina , cataracts etc but retinal specialists and refractive specialists generally don’t have a lot of cross over. Call them and ask in case he does that I’m not aware of.

For retina you can also try the world renowned Jules Gonin hospital In Lausanne.
