Welcome to the Ocular Surface Center Berlin (OSCB) !
The OSCB is a non-profit Science Institute for the advancement of knowledge* on the ocular surface. This concerns the normal structure and function, the interaction with contact lenses, as well as the alterations that lead to the onset and potential progression of ocular surface disease, such as e.g. Dry Eye Disease, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), Blepharitis, Ocular Allergy.

The enormous amount of new data in research and clinics on Ocular Surface and Dry Eye Disease, appears to make the understanding more and more multifaceted and complicated.
Therefore we have thought about A NEW VISION of the Ocular Surface and of Dry Eye Disease.
A completely NEW WAY to SEE and VIEW the Ocular Surface.
All information is joined by original artwork in a DYNAMIC pictographic self-explanatory style.
When the content of STATIC images becomes to complex ... they are transformed into ANIMATED Images.
Static slides are mixed with ANIMATIONS that make everything intuitively understandable.
This is a HOLISTIC way that allows to see the full picture at first glance, like a landscape from above.
The content is divided into SECTIONS. Within each section the information is presented in three FORMATSwith increasing depth of information:
GLIMPSE - gives a short impression of a topic. Suitable for patients & interested lay-Wo-men
OVERVIEW - covers the topic in more detail
DEEPER INSIGHT - covers more specific aspects in depth
