Munich Ophthalmology Practice

Prof. Dr. Marcus Kernt

After completing his medical degree at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU), Prof. Dr. med. habil. Marcus Kernt completed his five years of specialist training in ophthalmology working under Prof. Anselm Kampik at the LMU Eye Hospital. Here, he qualified as a professor and was conferred a licence to teach in the specialist field of ophthalmology. In addition to his specialist areas of interest in refractive surgery and retinal diseases, Prof. Kernt has broad expertise in all different fields of ophthalmology.
Over his many years working as a specialist at the LMU Eye Hospital, which included managing consultations for diabetic eye diseases, age-related macular degeneration, and cataracts and refractive surgery, he also often travelled abroad to pursue research and further specialisation, broadening his extensive practical knowledge and advanced scientific expertise in these fields.
Furthermore, Prof. Kernt trained internationally in vitreoretinal surgery and retinology, as well in oculoplastic and lid surgery: he spent this time in London training alongside leading specialists in the field, such as Prof. Alan Bird, Prof. Zdenek J. Gregor and Prof. Richard Collin at Moorefields Eye Hospital.

In 2015, Prof. Kernt was called up to the University of Oxford where he became a permanent member of the teaching faculty and regular university professor for ophthalmology and healthcare management, in addition to his role working as an independent ophthalmologist in Munich and Gruenwald. In this context, Prof. Dr. Kernt was in a position to collaborate broadly with many different English institutions in his work. From 2003 to 2004, Prof. Kernt worked at the Lariboisiere Hospital in Paris, whilst also spending 2013 working in Bangalore, India, at the Narayana Eye Hospital in the field of vitreous surgery.
As a senior specialist, Prof. Kernt spent many years working in a management role in Munich running specialist consultations for patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye diseases, helping countless patients to return to improved eyesight.
In the field of refractive surgery, he acted as the lead consultant for ophthalmology along with colleagues from the Refractive Treatment Centre (Centrum für Refraktive Therapie; ‘CRT’) at the LMU, allowing him to further develop his already advanced knowledge in this field. In 2011, Prof. Kernt was conferred the title of Professor of Ophthalmology by the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. In his research work, Prof. Kernt has particularly focused on the development of new treatment approaches for glaucoma and vascular retinal diseases, ophthalmological infectiology, ophthalmological imaging and diagnosis, as well as research in cellular biology. As an author of numerous scientific works and speaker at various national and international congresses, Prof. Kernt has been the recipient of several prestigious awards, honours and sponsorships. In 2015, he advanced from senior specialist to full professor of ophthalmology and health care management at the highly renowned Oxford University. In Germany, he was also awarded the Theodor Axenfeld Prize for his outstanding contributions to science. In addition to working as a professor at the prestigious Oxford University, he has primarily been working as an ophthalmologist at the Gruenwald and Munich-Fuerstenried Practice (founded in 2014), as well as now working at the Munich Maximilianstraße Clinic.
