Melles Cornea Clinic
Melles Cornea Clinic Serves Patients from Around the World
Melles Cornea Clinic is a highly specialized clinic that treats Dutch and foreign patients who have corneal diseases. We also treat ocular surface diseases, such as disorders of the mucous membrane, the tear film and the conjunctiva.
Melles Cornea Clinic was founded in 2004 by Dr. Gerrit Melles. He meant that in most cases, you do not need to replace the entire cornea, but only the diseased layer (or lamella). This resulted in revolutionary new treatment techniques like DMEK and Bowman layer transplantation. These techniques enable faster recovery, fewer risks, and often better vision. Dr. Melles’ innovations are now being used worldwide.
We know how nerve-wracking treatment in a foreign clinic can be. That’s why we’ve designed Melles Cornea Clinic with the needs of foreign patients in mind. Whenever possible, we plan your intake and surgery close together, to keep your travel to a minimum. The waiting list is short and our small, close-knit team comes from all over the world, which means there is a good chance we can speak to you in your own language. On the website of Zorgkaart Nederland our clinic is rated with an average mark of 9.2 out of 10.
