Providing Patient Care

The WVU Eye Institute is the only tertiary vision care center in West Virginia that provides access to some of the nation’s finest specialists. Providing the highest level of patient care takes the effort of many individuals, including the help we receive from donors who believe in our mission. Support to upgrade our equipment, facilities and technology literally helps thousands of patients, young and old, receive the highest level of care available in West Virginia.

Educating Future Specialists

We are committed to training outstanding ophthalmologists, helping to ensure that specialty care is available no matter where they live. Our residency and fellowship programs are in demand and require funds to support teaching and training. Faculty physicians work side by side with residents and fellows to provide training that is second to none. Support of our education program ensures that we continue to train top notch ophthalmologists to serve you.


Our Vision Research Center team is leading the way in breakthrough discoveries. In the lab or through clinical trials, our physicians and researchers are finding better ways to restore vision and prevent blindness. By supporting our research efforts, you are directly involved in helping to develop new discoveries that will help so many with vision impairments.
