Department of Ophthalmology

Steeped in tradition, the Department of Ophthalmology has been providing patients of all ages with consultations and treatment for eye-related disease and injury for over 150 years. Our main focus is on treating cataracts, glaucoma, corneal and retinal disease, neuro-ophthalmology, stra-bismus and diseases affecting the eye sockets, lids and tear ducts.
