Welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology
The UAB Department of Ophthalmology is committed to serving the eye health needs of the people of Alabama and beyond through excellence in patient care, research, and education.
The department continues to build on its three core missions. There is ongoing growth of both clinical and research faculty and commensurate expansion of space and associate resources to fund this growth. The department continues to work with the university and private philanthropy to provide support for its exciting and innovative programs.
The department views its future as one of unparalleled opportunity. The ingredients are all at hand to engage in state of the art patient care, remain a leader in ophthalmic education, and engage in cutting edge vision science research.
