A centre of history and innovation

Andre Mermoud

For over 30 years, I have been collecting antique ophthalmic equipment that has helped our predecessors to understand conditions and develop treatments in the fascinating field of ophthalmology.

We have had the incredible opportunity to acquire the instruments and furniture from the office of Professor Jules Gonin, a pioneering Swiss physician who, in the early 20th century, brought ophthalmology in Lausanne to the forefront with his knowledge and treatment of retinal detachment.

Prof med. André Mermoud - Swiss Medical Association (FMH)-certified ophthalmologist and ophthalmic surgeon
