About Dr. Mayer-Xanthaki

Being an ophthalmologist is my passion. As a Consultant ophthalmic surgeon at the Medical University of Graz, my focus is the treatment of eye tumors, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), retinal and macular diseases. My special interest is eye surgery. My specialization includes retinal and vitreous surgery as well as cataract surgery. My operations are performed at the Medical University of Graz.

Scientific research is an essential part of my job. My research interests coincide with my clinical work. For further education in both conservative and operative ophthalmology, I regularly visit national and international congresses. In December 2016, in Addition to my service at the Medical University of Graz, i I opened my private clinic in Graz with a specialisation in retinal and ophthalmic diseases.

Alongside my individual skills and know-how, in our private eye clinic we share a real commitment to providing patients with the highest levels of service and support within a unique environment. This commitment is about being not just able but also willing, about having the necessary aptitude and the vital attitude and above all about caring. It is a commitment reflected in the meticulous attention to detail as well as highest standards of Service.
