Ophthalmologist in Cologne

Dry eye specialist

Dear patients,

As an ophthalmologist and dry eye specialist, your eyes are the focus of my daily work. Whether you have tired and aching eyes, impaired vision or serious complaints that restrict and burden you in your everyday life, it is part of my job to examine your eyes in detail, make a diagnosis and then develop a treatment that is tailored to you and your needs.

In addition to chronic dry eye disease, I treat rare diseases such as eye diseases after bone marrow transplant (so-called ocular GVHD), ocular allergies, corneal neuropathic pain syndrome and ocular mucous membrane pemphigoid in my private practice.

Diagnostic and treatment spectrum:

  • Thorough assessment of your medical history
  • Detailed examination of your eyes, with special focus on the ocular surface
  • Analysis of tear osmolarity, volume and function including stability
  • Assessement of meibomian gland function and morphology (via Infrared-meibography)
  • Corneal esthesiometery
  • State-of-the-art evaluation of corneal neuropathic pain syndroms
  • In-office confocal microscopy of corneal nerves and immune cells
  • Additional functional testing using OCT, high-resolution photography, visual field testing, etc.
  • All results will be demonstrated and explained in detail
  • All patients receive a detailed letter, containing all examination results
  • Psychosomatic therapies


  • Manual Meibomian gland expression
  • BlephEx® lid treatments
  • Punktual plug insertion
