The FreeVis Eye Clinic and Prof. Dr. Knorz are now part of the EuroEyes clinic group

EuroEyes expands with the integration of the FreeVis LASIK Center in Mannheim, Germany

Dr. Joern Joergensen (CEO EuroEyes) announces that the FreeVis LASIK Center Mannheim under the leadership of Professor Dr. Michael C. Knorz will become part of the EuroEyes Group as of August 2023. Professor Knorz will remain in his current role as Managing Director and Medical Director of the FreeVis LASIK Center Mannheim. In addition, Professor Knorz will join the EuroEyes Executive Board as Chief Medical Officer (CMO).

Prof. Dr. Michael C. Knorz is internationally recognized as one of the leading experts in the field of refractive surgery and cataract surgery. He is a founding member of the joint “Commission Refractive Surgery” (KRC) of the German Ophthalmological Society (DOG) and the Professional Association of Ophthalmologists of Germany (BVA) and has served as Secretary of the KRC since 2002. Prof. Knorz has already been working for EuroEyes as Consulting Surgeon in China since 2014 and as Senior Vice President, Medical Affairs (International) since 2019.

The FreeVis LASIK Center Mannheim was founded in 1999 by Prof. Knorz and is considered one of the most renowned refractive surgery centers in Germany. The FreeVis LASIK Center offers the entire spectrum of refractive surgery. In addition to SmartSurf PRK, Femto-LASIK, and SMILE, further emphasis is placed on the implantation of intraocular contact lenses (Visian ICL) and refractive lens exchange with implantation of trifocal intraocular lenses. The spectrum of operations offered thus corresponds ideally to that of the EuroEyes Group.

With the integration of the FreeVis LASIK Center Mannheim, EuroEyes is expanding its presence in the fast-growing Rhine-Neckar triangle, Germany’s seventh-largest economic area with 2.3 million inhabitants, which has been one of the European metropolitan regions since 2005. In addition, with Prof. Knorz, an internationally recognized expert and experienced surgeon has been recruited who, as Chief Medical Officer (CMO), will contribute his expertise primarily to the international expansion of the EuroEyes Group in Asia.
