Patient testimonials

What our patients say about us

Stephanie F.

Mother of a patient

We were in the practice with our almost 1 year old daughter and were examined by Dr. Rüegg. She was very patient and made sure that the lengthy and stressful examination for our little daughter went smoothly and without stress. We felt incredibly well taken care of.

Antonella D.


I can heartily recommend Dr. Hohermuth as an ophthalmologist. Dr. Hohermuth and the entire team were very competent, friendly and courteous. My daughter and I felt very comfortable. Thank you very much!

Laura H.

Mother of the patient

An absolutely top managed practice. We have already had the pleasure of meeting a courteous team on several occasions and have experienced very competent and extremely empathetic treatment from Dr. Rüegg. We are happy to have found such excellent ophthalmological care for our one-year-old son.

Konstantin P.


Friendly and courteous ophthalmologist. I came as an emergency case and was treated quickly and competently. All my questions were answered clearly and understandably. I felt very well cared for in this difficult situation.

What we stand for

About us

We are an experienced and dedicated team of two ophthalmologists, several orthoptists and practice assistants. We provide ophthalmic care to children and adolescents, whether for a routine check-up or for a more complex eye condition.

Children are not small adults and every child is something special. We try to make the examination as playful and sensitive as possible for the children, while still examining them as precise as possible.

Our goal is to take enough time to listen to your concerns and harms, to support, promote and treat your child’s visual development as good as possible. There is a lot to see in life and many exciting things to discover! Everyday we are looking forward to support and treat our patients.
