Divisions and Departments - Surgical Division - Ophthalmology


The ophthalmology department has been part of the surgical division since 1967.  A significant portion of the surgical activity is performed on an outpatient basis; however, since the department coordinates treatment for an extensive region without an additional ophthalmology department, there is a higher than usual number of hospitalizations in the department with infectious diseases, injuries, tumors and other serious conditions which require intensive in-depth investigation.

The ophthalmology department also serves as a national cornea transplant center.  Many patients are hospitalized due to immune-rejection of cornea transplants that sometimes requires complex intensive care or following complex retinal-vitreous surgeries that require a longer than average hospitalization.

The department is also very active in the research and academic field and serves as a clinical field for medical students.
