Director’s message

We have started Universal eye hospital with a vision to offer Quality Eye care Services in
Albania and neighboring countries like Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro etc. Our mission is to
provide patient with reliable, timely and accurate ophthalmic diagnostic and treatment facilities
to help alleviate their eye problems.

In keeping with our philosophy “Sjellim Driten ne syte tuaj”, we at UEH strive to be in the
forefront of delivering specialized eye care services for various disorders of the eye. We hold
our core values – respect, compassion, teamwork and integrity very close to our heart and try to
provide quality eye care to maximize patient satisfaction.

We enhance our patient’s delight through continuous quality improvement and upgrading our
knowledge, skills and implementation of Quality Management Systems.
At UEH we have organized an Eye Trauma Center, a highly specialized service dedicated to
repair of all aspects the eye to help assure good outcomes. Patients are referred for emergency
repair of the ocular trauma, when time is of the essence in treating the injured eye, as well as
later for secondary repair of complex ocular injuries.
We have highly sophisticated Electrophysiology laboratory, which is the only place to do VEP,
ERG in the whole country.

Femtosecond LASIK (Femto-LASIK or Bladeless LASIK) is considered the “golden standard” laser
technique in correcting refractive errors of the eye. In our Hospital, we perform more than 97 %
of laser refractive surgeries using this technique, trying to provide our patients with the safest
and most modern “state of the art” technology, and (let me say) with the best price in the

In the Universal Eye Hospital, we created the first and unique reference center to deal with
retinopathy of premature children (ROP). It wasn’t easy, but with the help of a dedicated and
professional team (ophthalmologists, neonatologists, anesthesiologists, etc.) we are proud to
keep helping every day small kids suffering from this disease, offering them a complete range of
treatment options (indirect laser, intra-vitreal injections therapy, retinal surgery).

As a specialty hospital, UEH is uniquely qualified to handle the most complicated cases, as well
as a high volume of the most commonly needed procedures, and it is well documented that
excellence in clinical outcome is strongly correlated with experience.
