    About the Department

    The Department of Ophthalmology is comprised of thirty-eight ophthalmologists, all of whom maintain private practice offices and offer a full range of ophthalmologic services. Surgery is performed at the Ambulatory Surgery Center at Hartford Hospital which has the latest state-of-the-art ophthalmology surgical equipment for all types of general and sub-specialty surgery. The department consists of the following sections: General Ophthalmology, Diseases and Surgery of Retina and Vitreous and Pediatric Ophthalmology (CCMC).

    In addition to being a major center for cataract surgery in the central Connecticut area, the Eye Surgery Center, part of the Ophthalmology Department, is a referral resource for:

    • Advanced cataract surgery
    • Anterior segment surgery
    • Cornea surgery
    • Glaucoma surgery
    • Ocular-plastic surgery
    • Ocular-trauma surgery
    • Retinal and vitreous surgery
    Requests for consultations may be directed to the ophthalmologist on call thru the Emergency Department. Each member of the department covers the on-call service for one week at a time beginning Friday mornings each week.
     
    Consultations on private patients may be requested through the department’s on-call service or directly with any of the ophthalmologists.
