About HKU Eye Center
The HKU Eye Centre is a state-of-the-art ophthalmic centre established by the Department of Ophthalmology at The University of Hong Kong with the support of the Faculty of Medicine and our donors. The Centre’s mission is to conduct cutting edge clinical and translational research in ophthalmology, to deliver professional and patient-centered ophthalmic care, and to provide high quality clinical training to HKU medical students and postgraduate students. Strategically located in the heart of the Southern District of Hong Kong (7/F, Marina 8, Heung Yip Road, Wong Chuk Hang), the Centre centralizes the latest ophthalmic technologies and expertise of our Department to create synergies. The Centre is operated by a team of dedicated professoriate ophthalmologists, ophthalmic nurses, optometrists, orthoptists, ophthalmic imaging technicians, and houses three fully-equipped consultation rooms, an advanced ophthalmic investigation suite, and two day-procedure operating theatres.
The increasing waiting time for ophthalmology outpatient consultation appointments and cataract surgeries at public hospitals has undermined prompt delivery of clinical services to many visually impaired patients in Hong Kong. The HKU Eye Centre is committed to assist the socially disadvantaged and underprivileged community so patients who could not otherwise afford expensive eye care services would also be able to receive high quality ophthalmology consultation and surgery. The Department is thankful to our donors for their generous support to its charity community programs and research projects.
