Who were the eye sufferers and what happened here?

Specialized hospital for ophthalmology

Many people turned to the Ooglijdersgasthuis with all kinds of eye complaints. Initially, as outpatients.

For the treatment of eye disorders

For more serious cases, the Ooglijdersgasthuis had its own operating theatre.

And scientific research

In addition to operations, much research was conducted into the causes of and treatments for eye disease.

Including a paediatric ward

There was even a ward that was entirely dedicated to children with eye problems.

Fortunately, there was also time to relax

As you can tell by this group of men huddled around a billiard table in the day centre for men.
