Scientific excellence, compassion, and a dedication to training drive progress at the Emory Eye Center. As one of the nation’s top-ranking eye care, education, and research facilities, we offer high-quality, patient-centered care for the most complex eye diseases and disorders. Our physicians and researchers are leaders in discovery, taking ideas from the lab and translating them into new approaches to vision care, and our alumni can be found working all over the world. Today the Emory Eye Center remains at the forefront of patient care, education, and vision research with faculty, investigators, and trainees in the areas of macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes, hereditary retinal disease, diseases of the cornea, children’s eye diseases, visual problems related to the nervous system, and oculoplastic surgery.
Philanthropy has made many innovations possible at Emory, and opportunities to advance patient care, training, and eye research have never been better. Alumni, friends and grateful patients who want to promote discovery at the Emory Eye Center can make a significant contribution by supporting these programs.
