Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is the medical specialty dealing with diseases of the eye. The general ophthalmologic screening test consists primarily of diagnosing and treating visual acuity problems, but we also examine the health of the eye during that test.

Exam of the frontmost channels of the eye using a triple mirror RMC Ophthalmologic screening program: Our Ophthalmologist examines eye problems and history. The exam continues with a precise determination of visual acuity, which takes place with computerized determination of refraction followed by subjective tests. In addition to determining distance and near visual acuity, we also pay attention to determining the necessary correction for "monitor-distance”. Following this, the eye surface and the retina are examined.

  • I saw Dr Péter Kóthy, who examined my two children. He was amazingly thorough, kind and patient. Before beginning the examinations, he dissolved their fear and tension with incredible humor and good sense. He treated my children as partners throughout, while explaining everything to me thoroughly and clearly. It was a positive experience. Thank you very much!
