Very good English speaking Optometrist?

Hi,

Anyone with experience of a very good english speaking Optometrist? I have noticed a small black spot in my vision and would very much like to go to a good doctor to have this checked out before it may become a problem.

Any recommendations in the zurich area or great zurich area would be appreciated

Thanks in advance.

Re: Very good English speaking Optometrist?

I am in search for an eye doctor a.s.a.p., in Zürich,
and I will have to do a random selection from this list:
http://www.doktor.ch/augenaerzte/augenaerzte_k_zh.html

Does someone have a recommendation or two?

This much I know: the University Hospital's Augenklinik has a long waiting list, and even then, you will need a doctor's referral to make an appointment.

If you need only an optometrist then you can go to any optician-store close to you and ask if they speak English, I am pretty sure it will be easy to find

I actually had an eye emergency only yesterday and although i didn't end up going, i did speak with someone at www.tazz.ch and found them to be efficient and friendly. If you are seeing spots you should really get it checked today.
I hope that helps.....and Good luck.

I go to Shriqui which is at the end of Rennweg. I am sure he speaks good English (it's especially stated on the homepage) and is always very friendly. On the homepage you can find more information, check http://www.shriqui.ch/de/0.php

Re: Very good English speaking Optometrist?

Thanks to kbill, I managed to get an appointment with a doctor at Tazz, yesterday.
The staff were indeed friendly and professional.

The spot and floaters were caused by retinal tearing, and it is an emergency that needs to be acted upon immediately.
I would recommend anyone who has had it to get the eyes checked as soon as possible.

As someone who relies on public transport, Tazz was really easy to get to as well.

Good to hear that you managed to get it taken care of.
Two other Threads on here on the same subject.

This one, and this one.
