The Eye Institute

Improving, Restoring, and Preserving Sight!

The Eye Institute is a national leader as a full-service academic ophthalmology program. Dedicated to the highest quality eye care, vision research, and education our doctors and staff strive to provide state-of-the-art clinical and surgical patient care in a compassionate and timely way. In fact, these concepts are the core of our mission.

Patient Care

The Eye Institute is a regional source for state of the art medical knowledge about eye disease and treatment because our doctors are recognized nationally and internationally for advances in eye care. Our ophthalmologist and optometrists provide a complete range of patient care services during over 70,000 patient visits each year. Faculty physicians are full-time clinical faculty members of the Medical College of Wisconsin and provide eye care services in the Department of Ophthalmology of Froedtert Hospital.

Vision Research

The vision science laboratories on the 7th and 8th floors of the Eye Institute are uniquely positioned to have an immediate impact on the lives of our patients because the collaborative efforts between Eye Institute research scientists and clinical faculty have resulted in better treatment of complicated eye diseases and improved understanding of a variety of eye conditions.

The department also maintains ongoing collaborative research with additional vision scientists located within the Medical College of Wisconsin and receives substantial support from the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health and Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc.


The Eye Institute is committed to training the physicians and scientists of the future through the Medical College of Wisconsin medical and graduate school programs. In addition to training ophthalmology residents and offering subspecialty ophthalmology fellowships, physicians may also participate in our continuing education events.
