I would like to welcome you to the Ruiz Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science. Dr. Richard Ruiz was instrumental in growing a large and innovative research enterprise, which for the last ten years has been carried on by the work of Dr. Robert Feldman.

In addition to providing clinical eye care at various locations, our faculty are well funded and strive to produce innovative research in both science arena and in clinical research.  The Department trains four residents per year in a three-year residency program and provides instruction in Ophthalmology to medical students.  Our research labs are home to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows alike.

The Ruiz Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science provides excellent clinical and research experience and provides significant endowments to provide superior future leadership for faculty, residents and students.
