Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

Our department is home to innovative education and research programs, offering exciting opportunities for future clinician-scientists through a residency and two fellowship programs.

We are located in the Stanley M. Truhlsen Eye Institute, along with the Carl Camras Center for Innovative Clinical Research. We also share space with ophthalmology clinics and surgical suites operated by UNMC's primary clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine.
