Une patient fait un examen de la vue chez un ophtalmologue

Swiss Visio’s mission is to guarantee premium service in terms of the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients suffering from all types of ocular pathologies, excluding oncology. Thanks to a vast network of clinics and medical practices at the cutting edge of technology combined with medical expertise, Swiss Visio is able to refer patients to the most appropriate medical expert for each case, in an efficient and personalized manner.

More than an ophthalmology network ...

Swiss Visio brings together all teams and care facilities dedicated specifically to ophthalmology and ophthalmic surgery, in Switzerland.

A formation center

Swiss Visio Montchoisi et Swiss Visio Providence are recognised by the FMH (Swiss Medical Federation) as training centres for doctors who wish to specialise in medical and surgical ophthalmology. The centres are run by highly qualified medical trainers. 2-3 young assistant doctors are trained every year in our network.

In addition, the Swiss Visio Montchoisi center trains doctors from outside Switzerland to acquire a sub-specialty training in glaucoma. The medical teams regularly travel to congresses in Switzerland and abroad to give lectures as part of the continuing education of ophthalmologists. 

All the doctors in the group, managers and assistants, participate in the research programme and regularly publish scientific articles in specialist journals.

Our commitments

Vision for all

The foundation was established in 2001 by Dr. Mermoud and Dr. Karlen. Its aim is the creation and support of ophthalmological hospitals in developing countries (India, Nepal, many African countries...). From 2001 - 2020 the foundation has realized more than 20 projects worldwide. The foundation lives on donations from patients treated in the swiss visio network as well as from the doctors working there.

Every year thousands of patients will benefit from the joy of regaining their eyesight thanks to the operations carried out in the 20 VFA centres.
