Who we ARE

Emory Eye Alumni magazine is published annually for alumni, faculty, staff, affiliates and friends of Emory Eye Center.

The EMORY EYE CENTER includes the Department of Ophthalmology, part of the Emory School of Medicine, its clinical sector and all aspects of research. The Eye Center is ranked in the top 20 of the "U.S. News & World Report’s" annual survey of the nation’s best eye centers. The South's first corneal transplant was performed at Emory in 1947, and the inaugural refractive surgery trials were conducted at Emory in the 1980s. Today it remains at the forefront of many national clinical trials, including those on macular degeneration and glaucoma. Ophthalmology research is supported by current NIH funding of $8.8 million.
