Where Your Needs Are Seen: Ophthalmologist & Eye Surgeon Dr. Christiane Falkner-Radler

At her medical practice in Vienna’s 9th District, eye doctor Associate Professor Dr. Christiane Falkner-Radler is always happy to see new people – and help them see more clearly, too. Suffering from eye pain or worsening vision doesn’t just make life more difficult – it can be frightening. Vision is an important part of how we process the world, but professionals and other busy people often hesitate to seek medical help. They feel their own symptoms and circumstances are unseen and find the process of testing, diagnosis, and treatment daunting.

The medical practice in the Medvienna center offers people suffering from eye problems a full-service one-stop-shop in a spa-like atmosphere. Everything from diagnosis through medical interventions is carried out exclusively using state-of-the-art technologies and equipment. Dr. Christiane Falkner-Radler offers a full range of treatments and services and specializes in the vitreous body, retinal diseases, cataracts, and eyelid problems.

Dr. Falkner-Radler is a specialist in ophthalmology and optometry, Senior Physician at the Rudolfstiftung Hospital in Vienna, and Adjunct Associate Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York – which means patients are in the best possible hands.

English speakers can rest easy knowing they will be understood and consulted in their language, at the level of care to which they are accustomed.

Dr. Falkner-Radler continues to research and publish. She mentors young medical professionals, holds leadership positions in an array of professional associations, and volunteers in Uganda, sharing her knowledge and the latest eye surgery techniques with the medical community there.

With more than 10 years of surgical experience, Dr. Falkner-Radler now successfully performs over 800 surgeries a year – and is considered to be one of Austria’s best eye doctors, according to Trend magazine. Other sought-after surgeons might delegate diagnosis and consultation. But here, patients are treated as people first: Their time is respectfully acknowledged. The doctor meets personally to understand their symptoms, explain diagnoses, weigh options, and accompany each individual throughout their entire treatment and follow-up.
