About Us

The loss of vision can happen due to health issues, disease or injury. Many of these issues go beyond
what can be addressed during the course of routine ophthalmic care. That’s why over 20,000 patients come to
The Ira G. Ross Eye Institute for their eye care every year.

Why come to The Ross? It’s simple: you’ll see better here.

Behind the care and treatment – people specially trained and schooled by the best to diagnose, treat and repair eyes that need help...dedicated to preserving and protecting your vision.

With each physician we bring in from the best universities and hospitals in the world, we gain a better understanding of the complex system that defines your eyesight. Our physicians are all surgeons, providing both medical and surgical management of routine and complex eye disorders. Find out more about our Orthopic Program.

Behind that understanding – people who use state-of-the-art technology that is constantly evolving. If it’s available for diagnosis, treatment and repair, we employ it. If it’s being invented, we already know about it...and we’re among the first in line.

Behind the knowledge – people who perform painstaking research to unlock the enduring mysteries of the eye. Our research scientists are breaking through barriers to discover cures that were thought impossible not too
long ago.


  • To promote high impact research;
  • To provide community and medical education; and
  • To perform excellent patient vision care.
