Vision and Eye Care Highlights

  • Our research and advanced clinical capabilities enable us to provide quality care for difficult-to-treat eye conditions and chronic, long-term diseases that can affect vision, such as diabetes.
  • Our comprehensive medical and surgical vision services are part of the UPMC Eye Center​, rated by Ophthalmology Times among the nation’s top 10 ophthalmology programs for patient care, giving you access to innovative treatments, research, and clinical trials.
  • We are UPMC’s only Pittsburgh-based hospital to offer same-day retinal surgery.
  • We provide specialized care for newborns in UPMC Mercy’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) experiencing such vision problems as retinopathy of prematurity.
  • We also offer cosmetic and aesthetic procedures that can improve your vision or enhance your appearance.
  • You may come to UPMC Eye Center Mercy on your own or through a referral from your primary care doctor, ophthalmologist, or optometrist. Because many vision problems are linked to other medical problems — including diabetes, high blood pressure, and thyroid disease — we work closely with your doctors and other medical experts to determine the best plan of care for you.
