The Department of Ophthalmology at Odense University Hospital is the specialist department for eye diseases in the Region of Southern Denmark.
The department carries out examinations, diagnosis and treatment of patients with all types of eye diseases that require hospital treatment.
The Department of Ophthalmology only examines and treats patients who have been referred by practicing ophthalmologists or by other hospital departments. We are a regional centre with a capacity to do elective and urgent treatment of all types of common eye conditions in adults and children alike.
The Department of Ophthalmology consists of three outpatient departments, one ward, one secretariat, one surgery ward with five operating theatres, and a smaller operating theatre in one of the outpatient departments as well as a laser operating theatre in another outpatient department.
