    UPMC Eye Center’s mission is to improve quality of life through the preservation and restoration of vision.

    The vision of UPMC Eye Center is to
    • Be a leader in the delivery of eye care
    • Advance the frontiers of eye research
    • Educate the next and current generations in the fundamentals and state of the art in eye health, disease and treatment
    • Bring innovations in science and technology from the laboratory to our patients


    We achieve these goals in a number of ways:
    • Clinical patient care—UPMC Eye Center is rated among the top 10 Ophthalmology programs in the United States in the delivery of patient care. We value excellent quality care combined with outstanding service. We value and personalize care to each individual patient.
    • Research—UPMC Eye Center, the Department of Ophthalmology of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, has one of the top basic and clinical research programs in the country. Ranked 8th last year in National Eye Institute funding, UPMC Eye Center’s research focuses on ocular immunology, infectious disease, molecular genetics and molecular biology of retinal disease, glaucoma and advanced diagnostic imaging technology development.
    • Teaching—UPMC Eye Center has an outstanding teaching program, training six residents per year in a three year program. Graduates have gone on to clinical, research and combined clinician-scientist careers. UPMC Eye Center is also at the forefront of continuing medical education, and provides both ongoing and specialized educational opportunities.
