Our pursuit of groundbreaking research in ophthalmology complements our department’s commitment to excellence in clinical care and education.

The Department of Ophthalmology is committed to excellence in research, medical education and health care.

Our research leads to sight-preserving treatments for conditions and diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. Our goal is to reduce visual impairment and improve the quality of life for people of all ages.

Our researchers collaborate with scientists from more than a dozen other universities as well as domestic and international private research institutes and pharmaceutical companies.

We also participate in the SUNY Eye Institute, a SUNYwide eye research consortium represented by the four SUNY medical centers and the College of Optometry.
