The Department of Ophthalmology

Sight is Central

Modern Day OphthalmologyAt Rhode Island Hospital’s Division of Ophthalmology, we understand how critical eyesight is, and we are passionate about our mission to prevent blindness and preserve vision. As the primary teaching facility for the Ophthalmology Residency of the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University, the division provides teaching and research opportunities for practicing physicians, students and residents as well as comprehensive ophthalmic care to the Southern New England community.

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of our Residency Program, we aim to leverage the knowledge created at the Rhode Island Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic and put it to work to benefit the people of Rhode Island and the region.

Priorities for Tomorrow

This 50th Anniversary Year is a way for our community to come together—current and former residents from as far back as 1966, who have benefitted from the training program and friends who believe in the promise of our work. We ask you to consider a contribution to the newly formed Ophthalmology Equipment Fund.  Our goal is to raise $250,000 - $500,000.  Fulfilling the following priorities with philanthropic support will enhance the training of our residents and more importantly transform lives by preserving sight and promoting vision care.

  • Upgrade 7 clinic exam rooms and 1 emergency department exam room with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic ophthalmic equipment
  • Improve our ability to serve handicapped patients with specialized accessibility equipment
