Back in 2008, an ophthalmological story started that would today, almost 8 years later, grow into the biggest regional ophthalmological organization so far.
Eye Clinic “Svjetlost” Banja Luka was founded in 2011 on the foundations of the then Eye Clinic “Kozomara”. It was then in 2011 that the founder and the owner of the “Svjetlost Clinic” Group, Prof. Nikica Gabric, decided that it was the time for “Svjetlost” to open up its doors in Banja Luka, as he, together with his Zagreb team, had successfully run the education and standardization process of the staff of Eye Clinic “Kozomara”.
Eye Hospital “Svjetlost” Zagreb, as the first one in the chain of “Svjetlost Clinics”, was founded back in 1997, and its founder, Prof. Gabric, is the most renowned name in the field of ophthalmology both in our region, and beyond. The present Eye Hospital “Svjetlost” Zagreb is the most modern medical institution in the field of ophthalmology in the region of former Yugoslavia.
It is 6 floors high, stretched on more than 2000 m2. It has 10 outpatient wards for everyday examination of patients, 5 operating theatres, rooms and apartments for recovery of the patients, and along with all the state-of-the-art equipment, 3 latest-generation lasers for laser vision correction.
Prof. Gabric’s business idea started expanding to the countries of the region, too. Thus, in 2011, two “Svjetlost Clinics” were opened in Bosnia and Herzegovina, i.e. one in Banja Luka and another one in Sarajevo, while in 2012 the “Svjetlost Clinic” started to work in Split, as well.
Even the patients from outside the borders of Croatia and B&H receive the most modern services, all through consultant co-surgery of our institutions with other ophthalmology clinics in Montenegro, Serbia and Macedonia.
We are proud of both the quality of our services and the level of education of our staff, and the most modern equipment on which we provide our services. Thus, for example, all the laser vision corrections are performed on the most modern WaveLight 400 Hz laser that also has a system for eye tracking during the surgery itself, whereby the possibility of damaging the vision or eye is fully eliminated.
Furthermore, the pre-operative examinations for this type of surgery are also performed on the latest-generation devices, thus making the entire procedure fully personalized, and the process itself of vision correction individualized and adjusted to every patient.
