Blindness remains one of the most devastating and most feared health care conditions. UCSF ophthalmologists are dedicated to groundbreaking research that allows patients to keep their sight longer. And so much remains to be done.
Emerging technologies are opening new doors to discovery. State-of-the-art tools allow UCSF vision scientists to more deeply understand causes, mechanisms, and potential therapies for eye diseases, bringing ever brighter hope for preventing, halting, and reversing sight loss.
UCSF vision researchers benefit from collaborative partnerships with other leading scientists at the world-renowned UCSF Mission Bay research hub and Bay Area biotech firms. This faculty’s creativity, intellectual rigor, and cross-disciplinary approaches drive new insights and change patients’ lives.
Vision research is a cost-effective investment, leading to better therapies that can reduce sight loss and the need for care. That Man May See leverages every gift to attract additional support for UCSF vision science.
