Translational Vision Research

The Eye Institute is a Center of Excellence that brings together basic scientists and clinical faculty from across the university campus, along with corporate partners, to conduct translational research focused on high priority issues identified by the National Eye Institute. Our team of researchers make the Flaum Eye Institute at the University of Rochester the region's leader in specialty eye care. Our doctors are pioneering new diagnostics and treatments to help preserve vision. Often, clinical trials and new treatments are tested at the Flaum Eye Institute first.
