What drives us


What drives us

Heidelberg Engineering consistently develops visionary diagnostic solutions that are clinically proven and relevant for both ophthalmology and optometry. Our UK mission is to work together as a team to support eye care professionals by raising the standard of diagnostic imaging education on every level and by providing upgradeable, multi-modal imaging solutions that increase efficiency and improve patient care, whilst developing ourselves individually.


We are committed to supporting users to realise the full potential of our products. We offer high-quality educational workshops and seminars that provide the comprehensive knowledge necessary to fully utilize Heidelberg Engineering instruments in clinical practice, both in acute care and in a community setting. Our Academy provides over 30 educational events at our training facility in Hemel Hempstead annually, as well as regular educational peer discussion roadshows and OCT Live events at local and national exhibitions. We also offer comprehensive onsite training, webinars, educational videos and an online certification programme. We educate our team to the same high standards.

Patient Care

Improving patient care is at the heart of everything we do and is most certainly what drives us most. 50% of all sight loss could be avoided with early detection of disease and treatment at the right time. We are fortunate to deliver solutions that allow clinicians to see the smallest change, and that changes everything.
