Advancing Vision Research
Supporting vision research is an impactful and immediate way to change outcomes for patients with eye disease. Our vision scientists are working on several approaches to slow or stop vision loss, and even restore vision using stem cell and gene therapies, among others. Our researchers are developing advanced-imaging equipment to better understand how the eye works at a singular cell level and improving technology to better diagnose and treat diseases – ranging from glaucoma, to age-related macular degeneration, to corneal disease.
The Future of Ophthalmologic Care
The Eye Institute is home to one of the most highly regarded ophthalmology residency and fellowship programs in the United States. It is also one of the only ophthalmology training programs in the WWAMI region (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho). Supporting ophthalmology training not only improves the quality of our resident and fellow experience, it directly impacts patient care in our region.
Science and Service: The Karalis Johnson Retina Center
Located in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, the Karalis Johnson Retina Center brings together highly specialized physicians and researchers in 5,000+ square feet — all of it dedicated to serving our community. At the Karalis Johnson Retina Center, doctors are also researchers and patients are involved in the latest clinical trials to help advance new treatments for eye disease. Science, compassion and patient-centered care all converge in this state-of-the-art center.
