Providing Superior Eye Care

Under the direction of Douglas Rhee, MD, who is recognized as one of the nation’s leading glaucoma experts, University Hospitals Eye Institute delivers superior patient care, advanced clinical technology and pioneering research to seniors, adults and children from five centers of Excellence:

Patients, families and referring physicians benefit from convenient access to superior patient care, advanced clinical technology and pioneering research. We provide a full spectrum of ophthalmology services, including routine eye examinations, medical and surgical care for simple and complex vision disorders, inpatient consultations, diagnostic testing, and simple and complex adult and pediatric contact lens fittings.

At UH Eye Institute, we provide a variety of options because we understand that each person is different. It’s why our nationally-renowned experts team up to design customized care plans tailored to meet the individual needs of our patients and their families.

Our physicians also work in partnership with the greater Cleveland community through volunteerism, committee memberships and service as board members and trustees. Our outreach includes Eversight, Cleveland Sight Center, Free Clinic (now Circle Health Services), Ohio Lions, and Prevent Blindness Ohio, which provides over 1,000 free eye exams per year to people without health insurance.
