SLUCare ophthalmologists are committed to total eye care. From regular eye exams, contact lens and eyeglass services, to the treatment and management of eye disease and eye trauma, we offer a complete range of specialty surgical procedures and vision support.
SLUCare has one of the nation's largest — and the St. Louis region's only — full-time low-vision rehabilitation service. We assist patients with irreversible vision loss caused by macular degeneration, diabetes, glaucoma or other diseases, allowing them to regain lost visual skill and re-establish their independence. In addition to providing specialty low-vision examinations and vision rehabilitation training, SLUCare offers low vision aids from simple magnifiers to the latest high-tech devices.
SLUCare performs eyelid, orbital and lacrimal procedures as part of our offerings in the area of reconstructive and state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery on the eye. We place an emphasis on collaboration with related surgical specialties during complex reconstructive procedures.
Our pediatric patients are examined at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital and at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital - South Campus. Pediatric ophthalmology specialists are on staff to address the special vision needs of children. We treat strabismus, amblyopia, eye trauma, conjunctivitis, tear duct obstruction and retinopathy of prematurity, and offer pediatric eye examinations for glasses.
