(Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst) Albrecht von Graefe (22.05.1828-20.07.1870) is considered the founder of modern ophthalmology in Germany. After studying various disciplines, he turned to ophthalmology in 1848 and opened a private eye clinic with 120 beds in 1852 in Berlin, which soon enjoyed international renown in practice as well as in research.
1854 Foundation of the first ophthalmological journal "Archiv für Ophthalmologie"
1866 Director of the Department of Ophthalmology of the Charité
New treatments for glaucoma, squinting and cataracts should be especially mentioned. The "Graefe Knife" has been the standard instrument in cataract surgery for many decades. With the Helmholtz Augenspiegel he discovered and described numerous diseases of the retina, choroid and optic nerve.
History of the house
Built in 1912 and originally planned as a residential building, the building was completely renovated in January 1991 and rebuilt according to new usage concepts. The "Albrecht-von-Graefe-Haus" was founded on 12 October 1991 and named after the famous ophthalmologist and founder of modern ophthalmology Albrecht von Graefe.
The basic concept was to create a home in which diagnostics and treatment of eye diseases come together under one roof, from basic medicine to specialization, teaching and research. In diagnostics and treatment, high-tech instruments and equipment technology can be found amidst stylish interior design.
