The Refractive Surgery Suite
One of the most innovative and dramatic features of the Cole Eye Institute, the Refractive Surgery Suite is used to perform cutting-edge procedures to restore vision. Six patient rooms help meet the growing demand for these services.
The Clinical Research Suite
The Clinical Research Suite provides space for coordination for all clinical research studies for the Division of Ophthalmology.
The Low Vision Clinic
As one of the very few centers across the country specializing in optical rehabilitation and training, the Low Vision Clinic provides customized treatment to patients and education for families in the use of visual aid devices. For many people with diseases like macular degeneration, the Low Vision Clinic is the only facility with the resources these patients need to maintain their quality of life.
The Optometry Clinic
In addition to routine eye exams, contact lens fittings and low vision exams, the Optometry Clinic provides customized exams and continual follow-up for hard-to-fit patients. The full-time staff of optometrists enables the Optometry Clinic to treat some ocular emergencies.
The Patient Clinic
Designed to maximize physician/patient effectiveness, exam rooms are clustered by specialty into nine patient modules and share a central check-in/check-out and waiting area. The Pediatric Suite, designed specifically for young patients, includes six exam lanes and its own waiting area. The Patient Clinic is supported by the Diagnostic Suite located directly below it on the first floor.
The Union Eye Care optical shop, located on the second floor near the entrance to the skyway, is a convenient place for patients to fill their prescriptions for glasses before leaving the building.
