Duke Ophthalmology Research: Translating Research into Patient Care

Preserving and restoring sight is the core of Duke Eye Center’s mission. Great strides have been made in ophthalmology to gain a better understanding of eye diseases and find ways to treat them, restore sight and improve surgery; many of which have started with the research at Duke Eye Center.  Our basic and translational multi-disciplinary research teams take knowledge from the laboratory to bench to better serve patients and have made Duke Eye Center an international leader in ophthalmic research.
