Factsheet

Heine

Ophthalmology is one of the oldest medical sub-disciplines. References about the treatment of eye diseases can be found on stone slabs as old as 3600 years. Details about the structure of the eye, however, have only become known and used systematically since the introduction of the microscope in the 19th century.

Today, the choice between numerous ophthalmological instruments allows doctors to diagnose and treat eye diseases and functional disorders.

HEINE is specialised in the development and production of ophthalmological diagnostic instruments. Whether it be head-worn or hand-held, the entire HEINE product portfolio stands for the highest quality in order to provide the earliest and most precise diagnosis.

Our instruments are used worldwide by eye specialists, optometrists, orthoptists and students.
