Patient Care

We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of eye-related disease and conditions.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences Faculty members can offer the latest treatments and a comprehensive approach to caring for your eyes. Few eye care centers have as many sub-specialists under one roof. Experienced general and subspecialty ophthalmologists are on staff, specializing in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of eye diseases. Our optometrists provide basic eye care, prescribing contact lenses and glasses and screening for the development of more serious eye conditions.

In 2013, the Stanley M. Truhlsen Eye Institute opened and will maintain the vision of future generations of Nebraskans. It offers patients a convenient center for their care and access to the latest treatments for vision loss.

Our ophthalmologists and optometrists see patients at two locations. To make an appointment on campus at 3902 Leavenworth Street, call (402) 559-2020. For an appointment at Village Pointe Medical Center, call (402) 596-4600.
