The mission of the UPMC Eye Center, a recognized leader in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and disorders, is to improve patients’ quality of life through vision preservation and restoration.
We personalize and individualize care for each patient, and our care is always patient-focused.
As members of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Ophthalmology, UPMC Eye Center physicians are also leaders in research and education, and are extensively trained in the use of state-of-the-art ophthalmic technologies and procedures.
We have an outstanding teaching program and train six residents and five clinical fellows each year who then pursue clinical, research, and clinician-scientist careers.
We train numerous graduate and postdoctoral students and research fellows from the U.S. and abroad. The UPMC Eye Center is at the forefront of continuing medical education, and provides both ongoing and specialized educational opportunities for established, community-based physicians.
