Our primary eye care physicians provide a full spectrum of integrated patient care, from routine eye care and screenings for systemic diseases like diabetes, to the management of complex ophthalmic diseases such as cataracts and glaucoma.
Our cornea specialists offer care to patients with corneal, eye surface and refractive disorders, and perform diagnostic testing and treatment of a wide variety of corneal conditions. We have developed programs to treat complicated cataracts, dry eye and corneal scarring caused by infection and corneal degenerations.
We utilize the latest technology and resources to diagnose, treat and manage glaucoma disease. We are highly experienced in performing the latest surgical procedures, which offer patients shorter recovery times and a lowered risk of complications.
We provide advanced diagnostic, surgical and therapeutic care to patients with inflammatory eye disease. Offering a unique combination of skills and expertise, our team is cross-trained in Mass. Eye and Ear’s retina and uveitis services.
Our retina team diagnoses and treats virtually all eye diseases affecting the vitreous, macula and retina. We combine surgical and medical expertise with best-in-class technology and resources that target age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, retinal degenerations and detachments, and other retinal conditions.
We perform a host of delicate aesthetic and reconstructive procedures in and around the eyes and face. Our expertise includes reconstructive and cosmetic eyelid surgery, treatment of orbital tumors and inflammations (such as thyroid eye disease), treatment of watering eyes and tearing, and treatment for traumatic lacerations and fractures.
Our Longwood clinicians provide expert refractive surgery evaluations. Procedures are performed at Mass. Eye and Ear’s main campus at 243 Charles Street in Boston and include photo-refractive keratectomy (PRK) and laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Please view our Laser Vision Correction brochure for more information.
Our optometry team provides routine eye care, as well as prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses. With extensive knowledge of contact lens fitting methods, techniques, and the newest available lens modalities, our optometrists can expertly assess and prescribe contact lenses for many specialty uses, including: astigmatism, bifocal, color enhancement, dry eyes, color deficiency, prosthetic, post-surgical and post-trauma, and keratoconus and corneal irregularities.
Massachusetts Eye and Ear and the Joslin Diabetes Center /Beetham Eye Institute (BEI) have formed a clinical alliance to deliver highest-quality care to eye patients, especially those with or at-risk for diabetic-related eye complications. To learn more about this collaboration click here.
