Welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology at the Medical College of Georgia and Augusta University Health.

Our top priority is the provision of thorough and compassionate patient care. Within our department you will find doctors who are interested in matching your concerns with accurate diagnoses and treatments. We seek not only to provide the right treatment, but also to educate you in regard to your condition so that you too may be involved in its management.

Our educational mission is broadly focused. Upon completion of the 3 year course of instruction our residents are able to enter comprehensive ophthalmic practice or pursue fellowship training.

Through continuing medical education activities the local ophthalmic community as well as our team of eye care providers are given opportunity to discuss and implement recent advances in the medical and surgical care of the eye.​
