DUKE EYE CENTER
The Duke Eye Center's team of ophthalmology experts uses the latest technologies -- including optical coherence tomography (OCT), fundus photography, angiography, and others -- to diagnose your eye condition. They work with you to design a treatment plan that meets your needs and provides the best possible outcome.
Their appointments are comprehensive to avoid the need for multiple visits. A first appointment may include exams, dilation, imaging, treatment plan design, and in some cases, treatment. If your treatment plan involves surgery, you will also have a surgical consultation with your doctor. With the full range of clinics in one location, they can serve people with multiple conditions and collaborate with other Duke Health specialists to offer comprehensive care.
Duke University Hospital is proud of their team and the exceptional care they provide. They are why the ophthalmology program is ranked seventh in the nation and is the highest ranked program in North Carolina, according to U.S. News & World Report for 2020–2021.
