The Eye Clinic is an outpatient facility which includes faculty offices, 30 fully furnished ophthalmology examination lanes, contact lens facility, two fully furnished operating rooms, two laser procedure rooms, and an ophthalmic testing center. The newest addition to this facility was completed in December 2000 and includes the ophthalmology library, conference center, the resident’s lounge, locker facility, and computer center. All residents spend the majority of time in this facility during their training.
In the March of 2017, the department will move across South Limestone Street to a brand new 5-story medical office building. The Department of Ophthalmology will be housed in the top two floors (44,000 square feet) and will include 52 state of the art universal exam rooms and equipment; badge-restricted faculty offices with adjacent resident offices, a resident library and universal wetlab/surgical training/pathology room. Optometry patients will be seen on the fifth floor.
