        I have been to the ELZA clinic to have surgery for my miopy, as my eyes were rejecting the contacts and I was tired of... wearing glasses. From the first preliminary visit, to the actual surgery and post-surgery care Dr. Hafezi and all his collaborators have been extremely professional, considerate and helpful. All the steps of the (very short!) surgery were thoroughly explained to me in order to be as calm as possible, together with the medication plan and precautions to be aware of so that my eyes could heal in the best way possible. By following their exact instructions, the healing process has been very successful and smooth, and after about one week I was able to see perfectly. I absolutely recommend this team and their expertise!read more

        After some research on local options I decided to go with ELZA since it stood out as the best. The operation and the... post-operation recovery went extremely smooth (something I was worried about with PRK). Now my vision is much better than I had hoped and I have no side effects such as dry eye or night vision problems. Thank you!read more

        Vor einem Jahr war ich einer ganz verzweifelten Situation und total im Stich gelassen. Meine Augen wurden aufgrund... eines ausgeprägten Kerakotonus immer schlechter, ich hatte Angst und war alleine mit meinen Problemen. Zudem vertrug ich die Kontaktlinsen nur noch ganz schlecht und hatte jeden Tag Schmerzen.Professor Hafezi hat mir mit zwei Operationen wieder das auf Grund der Situation mögliche an Lebensqualität zurückgebracht. Es war ein starpaziöses Jahr mit vielen Entbehrungen aber es hat sich gelohnt! Herzlichen Dank fuer die Unterstützung.read more

        Ich wurde von meiner Optikerin auf Prof. Dr. Dr. Hafezi aufmerksam gemacht. Es war mir vorher nicht bewusst, dass meine... Augenkrankheit (Keratokonus) operativ mittels Cross Linking behandelt und so gestoppt werden kann. Die Beratung und Behandlung war sehr kompetent und ich fühlte mich jederzeit wohl. Die Operation verlief gut und das Ergebnis ist einwandfrei.read more

        Ich bin sehr glücklich, dass ich das Elza Institute gefunden habe. Ich wurde von anderen Augenärzten abgewiesen, da... meine Augen zu kompliziert/schwierig zu behandeln waren. Prof. Dr. Dr. Hafezi konnte mir jedoch helfen und ich bin sehr glücklich und zufrieden mit dem Resultat. Vielen Dank!read more

        My left eye had to be operated on because of a cataract. As I had an Artiflex lens implanted a few years ago, it had to... be removed first before a modern lens could be implanted to correct the cataract. Prof. Hafezi treated me in an very competent and friendly manner. I am very happy with the result.read more

        At the moment, 3 months have passed since the moment I made laser vision correction in this clinic. and I can say that... I am happy that I chose this particular clinic and Prof. F. Hafezi. The entire staff of the clinic is very friendly, treats patients with sympathy and patience if they are nervous before surgery (my big gratitude to Aida Alili for all support and patience). The doctor Hafezi and other doctors of the clinic are very professional and ready to explain to you as many times as you need. I can only recommend!read more
