Welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Science at Yale

Our Mission

We strive to provide the highest level of clinical care to our patients, to develop new treatments for blinding eye diseases through research, and to train the next generation of physicians and scientists. We are a premier academic institution for patient-centered care with a focus on excellence, compassion, respect, and innovation. We have a strong history of translational research leading to ground breaking clinical therapy. Our diverse faculty are world-class clinicians and scientists dedicated to training future thought leaders in Ophthalmology and Visual Science.

Our Practice

Our clinics are staffed with highly skilled ophthalmologists who provide a complete range of services in cornea and external disease, glaucoma, retinal diseases, pediatric ophthalmology, neuro ophthalmology, and related disorders. Our world-class physicians and scientists work in their laboratories to provide new knowledge that will eventually help clinicians to improve outcomes for our patients. Currently, the principal areas of research focus include glaucoma and disorders of the retina and visual system, which together constitute the vast majority of the causes of irreversible blindness.
On behalf of all my colleagues, welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at Yale School of Medicine. Our commitment to excellence in patient care, education, and research is unparalleled.
