Programs & Services
Doheny Eye Institute is an independent, nonprofit research organization proudly affiliated with UCLA Stein Eye Institute. Patient care services at Doheny Eye Centers UCLA are provided exclusively by doctors of UCLA Health.
Doheny Eye Institute is committed to extending diagnostic and clinical services. Recently the board of directors negotiated a historic strategic alliance with UCLA and Stein Eye Institute, another renowned institution for ophthalmic care with services that complement Doheny’s own.
This partnership will secure the future of state-of-the-art ophthalmic care, treatment and research. The timing is critical, as the need for Doheny’s services and research continues to grow. One example: age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects more than 2 million Americans over the age of 50. By 2020, an additional 2.95 million are expected to be diagnosed with the disease. Doheny Eye Institute is one of the world’s leading centers for new treatments for AMD. Doheny researchers have contributed to major studies of wet AMD therapies. They continue to perfect minimally invasive surgical procedures for wet AMD treatment, while leading the country’s most advanced center for imaging in support of AMD clinical trials.
Doheny Eye Institute expects to serve thousands of patients in clinics around Los Angeles and Orange Counties. They have emerged as a world leader in basic and clinical vision research and advanced patient care. The Institute’s innovative research programs continually result in new diagnostic and treatment procedures and are respected internationally for research of the highest caliber.
