Welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Science, University of Arizona-Tucson.   We are a growing Department, committed to delivering compassionate patient care to all children and adults with eye conditions, teaching Residents in Ophthalmology and medical students, and performing cutting edge research leading to new treatments.    We are particularly fortunate to be able to collaborate across the University of Arizona, with basic scientists and engineers, to provide new treatment approaches for many eye diseases.  Whether you are an individual affected by an eye condition, an interested member of the public, a Resident applicant, a medical student interested in Ophthalmology, or a Faculty colleague across the world, we hope you find useful information in these webpages.    If we can help you further, offer you an appointment to see one of our specialists, or discuss our research, let us know.
