The Department of Ophthalmology is serving the needs of the Central New York area through its outreach in both clinical and research areas.
The Department treats patients in its Center for Vision Care that have no other alternatives for treatment. In addition, the Department's residents participate in glaucoma screenings at various Lions' events and at the New York State Fair in August.
The researchers at the Center for Vision Research speak at a variety of meetings and schools providing both children and adults with information regarding the cutting-edge research that is being done in the area of vision research. The researchers also work collaboratively with other researchers around the world so that their research breakthroughs enable other researchers to build on their successes.
