Routine eye exam
"Eyes are a window to the body"
To maintain a lifetime of healthy vision, adults ages 18-60 should have a comprehensive eye exam at least every 2 years. Children and older adults should have a screening more often.
Five reasons why routine eye exams are important
"An outstanding ophthalmologist, who is constantly striving to improve his technique and knowledge. One of the top retinal surgeons"
This is a letter of gratitude to Dr JD and his team for outstanding professional service, kindness and assistance shown to my wife and myself. Recently holidaying in Vietnam I experienced retinal detachment and it was due to Dr JD's prompt attention and exceptional skills that my sight was saved. This was extremely important to me as I had lost sight in my other eye 8 years ago. Words cannot express how grateful we are for his exceptional care. ... I have been to my specialist when I got back home and he is also very happy with the results! Thank you!
I had a consultancy with Dr. J.D. Ferwerda in an emergency case: my left eye had a small hole in its retina. One year prior to this accident, I would have to go to Thailand or Singapore for urgent surgery. I was really lucky to be examined and operated by Dr. Ferwerda within two days. We had follow-ups a couple of times a week until he was sure that my eye was fine. He made me feel at home and as if we were friends with his friendly and humorous style of talking, but at the same time, he was the ultimate professional. Dr. Ferwerda is an excellent doctor and a great person. I am happy that I have now a trusting doctor who I can rely on for my retina exams. I highly recommend Dr. Ferwerda for anyone seeking ultra-high level eye care and specially for their retina. He is the best!
"As to his character, he is very friendly, ready to serve, and very agreeable to deal with. He is driven, ambitious, and sure of himself. He enjoys an unblemished record, is a good citizen and is trustworthy."

My first visit to the European Eye Centre was last week and I was very impressed. Dr JD Ferwerda looked after me and apart from giving me excellent advice has a good sense of humour. I have struggled with a very expensive pair of glasses that I bought in London several years ago. Dr JD picked up on the problem straightaway and the lenses were changed very quickly and are perfect now. I would recommend the services here to anyone.

I was experiencing an increasing loss of vision in my eye. A friend referred me to Dr. JD Ferwerda where he identified that I had a severe eye condition. Dr. Ferwerda saved my vision through various treatments. “Don’t wait to see an ophthalmologist when you start experiencing problems with your eyes”
