Ophthalmologic Surgery

Eyes have been the enduring subject of many poems and love songs throughout the centuries. Eyesight is considered so precious that, if optical health deteriorates and surgery is required, people want only the most experienced medical specialists to treat their condition.

In the Delaware Valley, some of the most renowned ophthalmologic surgeons are located at Penn Eye Care: Scheie Eye Institute at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. In fact, in 2010, U.S. News & World Report ranked Scheie Eye Institute among the nation's leaders in Ophthalmology.

Scheie Eye Institute serves as the Department of Ophthalmology of the University of Pennsylvania Health System and its physicians are faculty members of the Perelman School of Medicine.

In addition to complete diagnostic and treatment services in comprehensive ophthalmology, Scheie Eye Institute also offers the most advanced ocular surgery currently available, including intricate laser surgery for:

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Retinal diseases
  • Infections
  • Irritations
  • Sports-related eye injury
  • Ocular reconstruction
