General Eye Clinic Description

The General Eye Clinic (GEC) is the heart of our department and serves as the first point of contact for many of the Infirmary’s neediest patients, as well as a primary location for ophthalmic graduate medical education. Our dedicated residents and world-class faculty provide a wide spectrum of collaborative ophthalmic care ranging from managing common eye diseases and delivering routine eye exams to performing complex medical and surgical cases including cataract, glaucoma and retinal procedures. Special emphasis is placed on providing strong continuity of patient care. The GEC sees emergent referrals from outside providers from throughout the region and accepts “walk-in” patients with acute eye disease.

  • We provide routine and emergency eye care.  We welcome same-day appointments as available. It is recommended that adults receive a comprehensive eye exam every four years and children every two years.
