Ophthalmology

The gift of sight is so precious. Geisinger recognizes how limiting eye and vision problems can be, and is dedicated to leading-edge diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of all sight-related problems. Vision problems affect 15 million people in the United States.

Area residents are fortunate that Geisinger’s program is so comprehensive, beginning with subspecialty-trained ophthalmology physicians and optometrists, certified ophthalmologic assistants and technicians, and nurses skilled in vision care.
