The WAEH welcomes three New Members!

The University Eye Clinic (Maastricht, The Netherlands) Full Member

The Maastricht University Clinic for Ophthalmology aims to provide complete ophthalmic care available at an academic level to all residents of South Limburg, The Netherlands. The starting point is that the care should come to the patient as much as possible, instead of the patient to the care. For this reason, all ophthalmologists work both in the University Clinic for Ophthalmology and at one of the other locations in South Limburg.

In the University Clinic for Ophthalmology Maastricht, patients can count on expert, fast and patient-friendly treatment.
