Comprehensive Ophthalmology at KU Eye is a dynamic clinic where every aspect of vision care is evaluated: from glasses or contacts to complicated eye diseases. A leading tertiary referral location for the State of Kansas, our comprehensive ophthalmologists detect and treat many rare eye diseases. Our state-of-the-art technology and equipment ensures accurate diagnosis and screening, such as for glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. There is also a strong focus on treating eye diseases in patients with complicated health problems, partnering with the University of Kansas Hospital and Cancer Center, among others.
In addition to the ability to handle a variety of eye diseases, the board certified comprehensive ophthalmologists also treat common conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma. And, healthy adult (18 years and older) patients now have the option of having procedures done at KU Eye Surgery & Laser Center, our onsite ambulatory surgery center (ASC). Sometimes, however, cataract patients are referred to the main hospital because the patient's health is complicated, or because of complexity of the cataract itself.
