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:
