The Eye & Ear Foundation of Pittsburgh
Improving the Lives of Others
Imagine living in a world without sight or sound, a world where you can’t see your first grandchild, or hear your family members sing you happy birthday. Every day, people with conditions like these must go about their lives, in the wake of such debilitation. These life-changing conditions push our researchers at The Eye & Ear Foundation, home to the Departments of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh, to making strides everyday to improve the quality of life of those affected by diseases and disorders of the eye, ear, nose, throat, head, and neck.
At The Eye & Ear Foundation, we are consistently astonished with the stories of some patients, by the determined confidence shown by someone who lost their vision, or the defiant optimism of a sufferer of nasal cancer. Through the advancement of the research and education efforts of The Eye and Ear Institute, we have helped develop some world-class care and cutting edge research – from the revolutionary Glaucoma therapies, to potential treatment for tinnitus, the development of eye transplant techniques, and the expansion of minimally invasive Robotic Surgery– new science and new solutions are found every day.
