The full range of diagnostic and treatment modalities are available in the department of Ophthalmology. Residents and faculty combined performed over 2500 major ophthalmic procedures each year, including cataract surgery, retina detachment repair, glaucoma filtering surgery, blepharoplasty, strabismus repair and corneal transplantation.
Members of the department perform LASIK, PRK, and other refractive surgical procedures as well.
As a comprehensive department, routine services such as refraction for glasses or contact lenses are offered, as are more specialized services, including pediatric cataract removal and reconstructive surgery after ocular trauma.
The Department's retina specialists, for instance, offer the latest clinical advances in macular degeneration treatments and are enrolling patients in clinical investigations of new modalities for treatment and prevention of this sight-threatening disorder.
In whatever setting our work is performed, education is at the core of our mission to provide outstanding eye care, not just for today, but for the future.
