The Commission for Refractive Surgery evaluates refractive surgical procedures in line with current standards in science. To adhere to the requirements of the German Medical Association regarding structure, process and the quality of the results, KRC has developed recommendations for quality assurance of all new procedures.

Commitment in Gannan, China
In April 2018, the EuroEyes team made the long journey from Europe to Gannan to offer the local Chinese the opportunity to live a pain-free life. The charity trip to Gannan was coordinated by the Gansu Provincial Health & Family Planning Commission and initiated jointly by the EuroEyes Group, the Shunfeng Charity Foundation and the Shenzhen Cross-Border E-Commerce Association. On site, the Gannan State Health & Family Planning Commission and Gannan People’s Hospital implemented the project. Dr. Jørn S. Jørgensen, founder and CEO of EuroEyes, Dr. Jannik Boberg-Ans and many other EuroEyes employees have operated on more than 190 visually impaired patients.
Due to a lack of financial resources in the health sector, poor infrastructure and few hospitals, the people affected in Gannan suffer from a lack of medical care. EuroEyes donated hundreds of artificial lenses for the treatment of cataracts.
EuroEyes improves lives in the Dominican Republic
A team of nine EuroEyes doctors, nurses and refractive coordinators travelled to La Romana in the Dominican Republic, in cooperation with Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International, a nonprofit humanitarian aid program for the blind and visually impaired. The team then established an ophthalmic surgery center at the local hospital. Approximately 130 patients in El Buen Samaritano were in need of surgical eye procedures. Many of the patients were suffering from cataracts that, in many less developed countries are left untreated and lead to blindness. Through EuroEyes projects such as in the Dominican Republic, we want to support our colleagues in other countries to improve thelives of patients,“ explains Dr. Jørgensen. Apart from providing surgical support, EuroEyes also donated 200 artificial lenses, and provided the people in the hospital El Buen Samaritano with glasses.
Extending our Committment to Enhancing Lives
EuroEyes has many years of experience in planning and implementing such medical missions and with that we fulfill our social responsibility on an international level and provide direct medical help. Our employees have already successfully carried out similar projects in cooperation with SEE in Peru and Lesotho.
