University Hospital

Ophthalmology

Welcome to the Institute of Ophthalmology and Visual Science. The Institute's ophthalmic surgeons are members of University Hospital's medical staff. They are dedicated to providing outstanding, compassionate patient care. Because the physicians work in close physical proximity, patients are readily afforded consultation from our many ophthalmic subspecialists. The Institute features state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment (housed in the Ocular Imaging Center and in the Ophthalmic Electrodiagnostic Laboratory) and offers the most advanced therapies available.

The Institute is the only one in New Jersey that provides 24-hour coverage for every disease and/or condition of the eye. Our highly skilled, dedicated team has the expertise to treat even the most complex cases, no matter when a problem occurs.

Our physicians are also active researchers, who are continually searching for new ways to diagnose and treat eye diseases and, perhaps, one day help people to regain their sight. We are involved in clinical trials so patients have access to cutting-edge technology that may not be available elsewhere for years.

The Institute offers diagnosis and medical and surgical treatments for cornea and external ocular diseases, glaucoma and retinal diseases/disorders. Our team also has experts in pediatric ophthalmology; neuro-ophthamology; oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery; orbital surgery, and low vision optometric and rehabilitative care.
