UVA Ophthalmology Patient Information & Links

One of the most important tools a physician has is a well-informed patient.  It is our goal to provide patients and their families with as much information as possible.  We all think of questions after we walk out of our exams that we wished we had asked our physician.  We hope this website can help answer some of those general questions.  Of course, we are always available by phone to help answer specific questions.  Please make sure that you contact your physician’s office for any specific concerns you may have.

This part of our website will be updated often and will help direct patients and their families to valuable resources to educate them about the health of their eyes.
