Eye Center

(Approved by the Board of Regents, 1999)
Jayne S. Weiss, MD - Director

The LSU Eye Center of Excellence was created in 1978 as a comprehensive center for vision care and research, with interdisciplinary cooperation among basic scientists and clinical scientists to advance the prevention and treatment of blinding eye disease.

The LSU Eye Center is a comprehensive ophthalmic medical center, recognized as a world leader in patient care, in medical education, and in research to preserve and restore vision. For over 30 years, our physician-investigators and scientists have actively searched for causes, preventive measures, and most effective treatments for diseases and disorders of the eye. Our faculty are known for pioneering work in laser vision correction, cataract and other refractive surgeries, viral and bacterial eye disease, corneal transplantation and cornea preservation, ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, neuro-ophthalmology, glaucoma, wound healing, drug delivery, contact lenses, diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and other retinal diseases and degeneration.

The LSU Eye Center has earned national and international recognition for its comprehensive programs in patient care, research in the vision sciences, ophthalmology education, and outreach to the community. We are particularly proud of the physicians, scientists, and technicians whom we have trained who are now leaders in the local community, the state of Louisiana, and the world at large.

In 1997, the outstanding residency programs of the LSU Eye Center and the Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation merged, combining the strength of the faculties, facilities, and varied patient populations of the two institutions. This ACGME-accredited residency program ensures enriched academic and clinical experiences for the brightest and most highly motivated ophthalmologists in training.
