Eye and Vision Care

University of Missouri Health Care provides comprehensive ophthalmic evaluation and treatment, from routine eye exams to several corrective eye surgeries such as LASIK. This also includes pediatric specialists to fitting of safety glasses.

This is based upon a fundamental commitment to the highest standards of vision research, ophthalmic patient care, compassion and education, endeavoring continually to develop nationally respected faculty and staff. We have provided leadership that sets standards for excellence in ophthalmology since 1959.

A new tool helps you understand many different conditions and diseases of the eye. You get to see first-hand what it would be like to see through the eyes of someone with conditions such as cataracts, colorblindness and more.
