Personal, caring approach

For us, our patients always come first. Throughout your treatment, we are at your side from start to finish. We believe that everyone’s eye sight is unique and so we always treat you in the way that is best suited to you. Thanks to this personalised approach, we can help you enjoy the best possible eye sight.

High-quality eye care

Your eyes are our greatest concern. That is why we do very extensive eye examinations, using the latest, advanced equipment and the most recent, proven treatment methods and technologies. Moreover, our eye doctors are continuously improving their skills and we take part in national and international training programmes and congresses so we can offer each patient the latest treatment options.

Experienced, highly motivated team for every eye condition

With us, every pair of eyes receives our full attention. Our team consists of ten ophthalmologists, each of whom is specialised in a particular area of ophthalmology. In this way, we combine various perspectives and specialisations in order to offer you the best possible eye care. Along with our clinic manager, 3 orthoptists, 2 nurses, a laser technician, 2 optometrists and 6 receptionists, we value the trust you place in us. Every smile, every successful treatment and every satisfied look reminds us why we love what we do.

Advanced equipment and medical infrastructure

At our eye centre, we have seven consultation rooms and four technical rooms designated for eye testing, as well as two certified operating rooms. In addition to the measuring devices needed for a detailed preliminary test, our centre also has a nanosecond cataract laser, a femtosecond laser (Ziemer LDV) and an excimer laser (Schwind Amaris 750S). Since May 2023, we are the first in Belgium to be equipped with a Belkin SLT laser for the ‘no-touch’ treatment of glaucoma.

We continue to invest in the latest equipment so that we can offer you high-quality testing and precision treatments.


Centrally located and easy to reach

We are very easy to reach by car, train or metro. You will find us at Sint-Michielslaan / Boulevard Saint-Michel 12-16 in Sint-Pieters-Woluwe/Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, at 50 metres from Montgomery Square, just outside Brussels city centre. You can easily come by car and will find parking spaces in the adjacent streets around our centre. You can also reach us by public transport, as the Montgomery stop is right near our centre.
