Eye clinic and Optical studio “Dr. Sefić” are two separate private entities, trained to fully process and provide help for the ophthalmological patient. All the eye examinations and diagnostic is performed in the clinic, whereas all surgeries are performed in the surgical room under local anaesthesia. Doctors, members of the Sefic family, are involved in this work. After a detailed ophthalmological examination every patient is supplied in the optical studio with visual aid (glasses, contact lenses) or if recommended a surgical procedure is performed in the surgical room.
Surgical room is part of 140 m2 space of the Eye clinic and optical studio “Dr. Sefić” in the #5 Ferhadija Street. Along with the operational room, there are rooms for the admission of patients, relaxation and rest of the staff. Surgical procedures are done in agreement with the patient and according to the anticipated plan. Patients are not held in the hospital bed after the surgical procedure– treatment; instead they are released and can go home after one hour.
We perform all after-treatment care. The usual practice is for patients to set up an appointment over the phone with time and date of the examination. Patient is admitted on time for the examination with no delays with the examination taking up to half an hour. Emergencies can be admitted upon the arrival and without previous appointments.
