I’d like to personally welcome you to the UTHealth Ruiz Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science. We are a rapidly growing, dynamic organization which I feel privileged to lead. As physicians, we’re committed to providing the highest quality eye and surgical care to our patients at the Cizik Eye Center. As researchers, we strive to produce innovative research, both in the basic 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. We currently offer clinical fellowships in Glaucoma, Cornea and Refractive Disease, and Vitreoretinal Surgery and Disease. Our research labs are home to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
We invite you to join us on this quest for ongoing innovation, productivity and discovery.
