The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences’ culture of innovation is supported by generous donations from our esteemed alumni, grateful patients, friends and families like yours. Please consider giving to continue our exciting research initiatives, critical clinical trials and sight saving efforts.
Long recognized as a national and international leader in eye care, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences is exploring new projects in patient care, research and education in the hope of eliminating vision loss.
With strong clinicians and a talented core of basic scientists, the department is well-positioned to care for patients, unearth the root causes of eye disease, develop new treatments and train students to become the ophthalmology and vision science leaders of the future. The National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has recognized the department’s excellence with awards that place it among the top NIH ophthalmology grant recipients in the country. Continued cuts in federal grants and a growing need for answers to eye disease as the population ages, however, make clear the need for a more stable, dependable source of funding.
